Aaron Ramsey Arsenal Win against City in the FA Cup Semi-final

Arsenal are set to face a huge test of their campaign when they take on Manchester City in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey has urged the gunners to silence the critics by managing a win against Pep Guardiola’s team. It is easier said than done, as City come on the back of a good run of form in the last few weeks. The club certainly struggled to adapt to Pep Guardiola’s tactics early on in the campaign, but it seems that the Spaniard has been able to convey the information much better in recent months.

City have managed to win the last two games in the Premier League to put themselves on the verge of a top four finish. Arsenal, meanwhile, are a huge seven points behind City with only six games left in the campaign. As it stands, the club stands to finish outside the top four for the first time in more than two decades.

The club has been able to enjoy an extended run of form in this competition even when they have not been able to sign the best players. After having faced an intense round of criticism due to the club’s poor form, Arsenal have managed to win to the last three games. Ramsey says that a win over City will go a long way into silencing the critics.

"This is massive for us. It’s going to be important for us to finish the season strongly and hopefully have a final to look forward to. It has been a quite difficult season.There are a lot of things being said at the moment but we have to stand up for ourselves and get back on track as quickly as possible. There’s still a lot at stake and it’s important now to put ourselves right. City have got a world-class manager [Pep Guardiola], who has proven how good he is and they have a lot of exceptional players who can produce something out of nothing,” said Ramsey.
