Twitter reacts to an amazing FA Cup semi-finals.
Liverpool made a bright start to the game at Wembley Stadium. The Reds took the lead in the ninth minute through Ibrahima Konate when the French defender headed home from an Andy Robertson corner. It is worth noting that the 22-year-old has been in some great goalscoring form of late. Konate scored twice across two legs against Benfica in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Reds doubled their lead eight minutes later through Sadio Mane following a goalkeeping error by Manchester City goalkeeper Zack Steffen. The American international had the ball at his feet but failed to clear it in time, allowing Mane to tap the ball home.
Sadio Mane would then go on to score the Reds’ third goal right before half-time. The Senegalese forward was found by Thiago and then volleyed an effort, beating Steffen at his near post.
Manchester City pulled one back early in the second half through Jack Grealish. The England international converted from a Gabriel Jesus cross to make it 3-1.
Portuguese playmaker Bernardo Silva gave City a glimmer of hope after scoring their second goal deep into injury time. The Reds, however, held on to book their place in the FA Cup final.
Here are some of the reactions to the FA Cup semi-final on Twitter:
It is worth mentioning that Liverpool will face either Crystal Palace or Chelsea in the FA Cup final later in May. There is a real possibility that there could be a repeat of this season’s Carabao Cup final between the Reds and Chelsea.
Manchester City and Liverpool will shift their attention back to the title race
Manchester City and Liverpool will now shift their attention back to the Premier League title race. Following their 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium last weekend, the two sides are currently separated by just one point with seven matches remaining.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are scheduled to take on fierce rivals Manchester United at Anfield on April 19. The Reds secured an emphatic 5-0 win over the Red Devils earlier this season at Old Trafford.
Man City, on the other hand, have a home game against Graham Potter’s Brighton & Hove Albion. It is worth mentioning that Brighton recently defeated both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
It is also worth noting that both sides have qualified for the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Manchester City are set to face Real Madrid while Liverpool will take on Villarreal.
There is a chance that both teams will face off in the finals of the Champions League this season.
