QUADRUPLE DREAM OVER: City lose FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea
Pep Guardiola will not lead his team to four trophies this season after Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-final.
City had been on track to lift all four major trophies until this FA Cup exit with Chelsea advancing to face Leicester City in the final.
Guardiola's side are still on course to win the Premier League and are in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League.
However, they could be kicked out after their agreement to join a European Super League forced UEFA to threaten the 'big six' English clubs.
Changes cost City?
City made eight changes to the team ahead of the match and the manager backed the decision despite defeat.
“What can I say? When you have two and half days to recover and you play away and you have to travel on the train for three hours,” Guardiola said.
“But don’t say we don’t pay attention. A team that arrives in the final stages of this competition couldn’t say that.
"You wouldn’t get to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup if we’re not paying attention.
"We always play to win and congratulations to Chelsea.”
Guardiola added: “These guys in 10 months have fought in every game like never I’ve seen before. We lose a game against a top side and now we don’t pay attention. We respect a lot the FA Cup.”
