Liverpool emerged victorious over Manchester City as they won 3-2 at Wembley to reach the FA Cup final for the first time since 2012. Klopp’s side were exceptional in the first half as they took the lead from Konate’s header within 10 minutes of the start.
Sadio Mane scored in front of the Manchester City goal after a blunder by Steffen before volleying in just before half-time. Grealish pulled one back early in the second half as Bernando Silva scored his second goal but failed to level.
Liverpool’s dream of winning the quadruple is well within reach as they face Chelsea or Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final. This is the third time Manchester City have been eliminated in the semi-finals for the third consecutive year. Pep’s side won the Champions League quarter-finals game against Atletico Madrid a few days ago and are now eliminated from the FA Cup.
Here are some tweets from fans via Twitter highlighting the performance of two of England’s best clubs:
Sadio Mane was a standout player against Manchester City as he scored two crucial goals that helped Liverpool reach the FA Cup final. He scored two goals in the game, with 100% shots on target and 87% passing accuracy, earning him Man of the Match for Liverpool. One fan even wrote that he was an absolute “world class” player.
“Sadio Mane = World Class”, the fan tweeted.
