FA Cup: Guardiola singles out one player as Man City qualify for final

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hailed Riyad Mahrez’s display in their 3-0 win over Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday.

Mahrez scored all three goals as the Premier Leagues champions booked their spot in the final.

“It’s the fourth time in a row we’re here, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool, we could not do it. We did really well. I’m really satisfied for the club, after many years, to be in the FA Cup final.

“Mahrez is an exceptional player, a big-stage player, he has the mentality to score goals. His composure for the penalty was important. He loves to play football and he’s given many things in these years and hopefully more in the future,” Guardiola said after the game.

City are still on their quest to win the Treble this season and will take on Arsenal in a top-of-the-table clash at the Etihad on Wednesday.
