Man City 1 – Brighton 0
Manchester City are into their second cup final of the season.
On Saturday at Wembley, a fourth minute goal from Gabriel Jesus was enough to book the Sky Blues a final place.
City will face either Wolves or Watford in the showpiece.

Kyle Walker vs Alireza Jahanbakhsh
One of the big talking points from the FA Cup semifinal concern a clash between Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Kyle Walker.
Just after the half hour mark, the duo clash near the touchline.
Walker and Jahanbakhsh pressed head, however the Man City defender motioned towards a headbutt.
Should Walker have been sent off?
Sadly for Brighton, City’s England international was only booked.
A let off for Manchester City and Kyle Walker?

Man United fans fume after Marcus Rashford precedent
Walker’s yellow card for City went down badly with Man United supporters.
Those United fans recalled an incident from 2018, when Marcus Rashford was sent off at Burnley.
Rashford was dismissed after he touched heads with Burnley’s Phil Bardsley.
For most Man United fans watching the FA Cup semifinal, Walker’s behaviour was far worse.

So rashford gets sent off for exactly the same and so did Richarlison yet in this game the rules clearly don't apply? @FA No wonder our game is a laughing stock, too many opinions over riding actual rules… Clear headbutt whether it was soft or not.

Rashford got sent off for the same thing at the start of the season. Not like city to get away with something… oh wait

I’m sure Richarlison and Rashford have both been sent off for that. Why not Walker, even with VAR?!
