Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has given his verdict on Manchester City’s performance in the 3-0 victory over Sheffield United in the FA Cup.

Guardiola made six changes from the team, which drew at Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday, with a Riyad Mahrez hat-trick securing City a 3-0 win and a spot in the FA Cup final.

“It’s the fourth time in a row we are here, and the last three against Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool we could not do it,” Guardiola told reporters after the win.

“Today we performed. This game is coming on the back of Bayern, and we talked about how we have to try again and perform well – and they did really well with all the guys, the ones that came from the bench, everyone was perfect.

“I’m happy and really satisfied for all the club to be after many years in the FA Cup final.”
