The latest edition of Manchester City vs Liverpool lived up to expectations as the two giants of English football produced another thrilling match, with Jurgen Klopp‘s side winning 3-2 at Wembley to book their place in the FA Cup final.

It was Liverpool‘s bright start that saw them eliminate Pep Guardiola‘s side, as Ibrahima Konate opened the scoring in the ninth minute and as Sadio Mane scored two more before the break. Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva then scored at each end of the second half to push the Reds all the way, but they held on to keep their quadruple hopes alive.

As expected, the intensity was high from minute one onwards and Liverpool delivered the first punch, with Konate finding space and converting at an early corner.

Before Manchester City could settle, Mane had made it 2-0 by sliding in to tackle the ball into the net as backup goalkeeper Zack Steffen dillied and dallied on the ball on his goal line.

Besides the two goals, Liverpool had the better of the first half play, and they made that count once more just before the break as nice link-up play between Thiago and Trent Alexander-Arnold set up Mane for a cool finish.

But, Manchester City showed their quality in the second half as Jack Grealish tapped in after a Gabriel Jesus pass just 70 seconds after the restart.

Manchester City were the better side in the second half and kept probing, with Gabriel Jesus having a golden and sunlit opportunity through the middle as he beat the offside line, but Alisson stepped up to make an important save.

Alisson also intervened when Riyad Mahrez dribbled inside from the byline in the 90th minute, but the rebound trickled across goal and Silva was able to tap in to make it 3-2 ahead of four minutes of stoppage time.

Despite pushing for an equaliser that would send the semi-final to extra time, the Sky Blues couldn’t find one and it means Liverpool will be in this year’s FA Cup final, where they’ll face either Chelsea or Crystal Palace.
