They met in the Premier League three weeks ago, and offered a very entertaining 2-2 draw. Last season and the season before that, there were more 2-2 draws between them. In 2013, City beat Arsenal 6-3. After all that, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Yaya Toure expects another high-scoring game between Arsenal and City in their FA Cup semifinal at Wembley tomorrow.
I think the philosophy of football on the field is a little bit similar, because two teams are going to attack
the City midfielder told reporters, counting on Wenger and Guardiola’s teams to step on it, in order to score that crucial first goal that should open the game up even more.
The fans don’t have to expect one team to defend and the other to attack. They will expect two teams to attack each other to the end, fighting for one objective – the trophy – and I think it’s going to be a beautiful game
Toure said, eager to face Arsenal in yet another big encounter between the two teams, the kind of matches that are special to players as well, as the former Ivory Coast international admitted.
As for City’s target, no surprise;
I hope this time we are going to be lucky from the first minute. I think Arsenal is a step – we have to remove them and go to the final, but we’ll see what can happen
the former African Player of the Year said.
