In a world of rolling news, where social media gives everyone a platform and managers are second-guessed and scrutinised more heavily than ever before, Arsene Wenger stands as one of modern football's great anomalies. "The expectation of the club is as high as possible, winning titles". "We are playing in Wembley, it's always something special when you play there".
He said: "There are still a lot of things to fight for - to reach one final and then after to finish in the Champions League for next season". It's worth noting that they did show guts and determination when they faced Manchester City earlier this month, twice battling back from a goal down to draw 2-2.
The Arsenal boss surprised everyone when he played a 3-4-3 formation against Middlesbrough in their last game and could opt to play the same formation against City on Sunday.
Arsenal will be without David Ospina, Shkodran Mustafi, Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez, while Petr Cech is expected to start the match.
I'll be buying total goals at 3.35 with Sporting Index. He has scored four goals in four matches in FA Cup this season, and has scored six goals in the last seven appearances for City. With Arsenal caught in the throes of a crippling mental paralysis, that has stripped the side of form and confidence, Wenger has faced unprecedented calls to step down.
That's not to say that City haven't played some thrilling football this season.
It doesn't matter what competition you put him in, Sergio Aguero seems to thrive.
John Stones will miss the semifinal having a muscle injury, Guardiola added, but Vincent Kompany is likely to be around.
"They will not be happy", Guardiola said on Friday of City's owners from Abu Dhabi. A win for Bournemouth will confirm their top flight status for another season, so they'll be hungry to beat Middlesbrough and I'm confident that The Cherries will emerge victorious.
The Gunners also have some history on their side. Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are no exceptions.
Guardiola is hunting for his first prize in English soccer along with the Catalan said winning the FA Cup would have been a boost to his team's belief. While City have underperformed against Arsenal slightly, especially recently, they come into this fixture in better form. 'We were able to win the first Champions League (there).
The midfielder has created more chances than any other Cherries player this term with 34, equating to an average of 1.3 key passes per game; he has averaged the joint-most dribbles of anyone 2.1 alongside Josh King; and only Ryan Fraser and Adam Smith have been fouled more often than the 25-year-old.
Wilshere is often pictured in the tabloids smoking cigarettes or shisha pipes, and many fans suspect he doesn't do enough to help himself battle back from his injuries.
