City's Mendy vows to stay out of trouble

Manchester City booked their place in the FA Cup final yesterday with a less than spectacular 1-0 win over Brighton, taking them one step closer to achieving something that no English side has ever achieved, winning all four major trophies in one season.

In one of the only fluid moves put together all afternoon at a less-than-full Wembley, Kevin de Bruyne whipped in a superb low cross and Jesus arrived at the far post to plant a diving header past Brighton keeper Matthew Ryan.

It is City's second visit to Wembley in a matter of months after they beat Chelsea there in the Carabao Cup final. It's a semi-final; they are incredible defensively; well-organised and we knew that set-pieces were huge for them.

"We have some huge games to come, we look forward to the next one at Spurs on Tuesday and focus exclusively on that", the England midfielder said.

He is fully focused on adding to City's five FA Cup wins, and says he is well-versed in the history of the competition having watched many finals as a youngster back in Catalonia.

"My opinion is that nobody has done it [won the quadruple], so why can we do it?", Guardiola said.

Despite those regular absences, City remain firmly in contention to retain their crown, and Pep Guardiola's side could yet claim an unprecedented quadruple. They have played a lot of games and we are going to try until the end.

Speaking about the game, he said: "We are happy to be in the Final, after winning two titles this season".

"Today, we didn't "conserve energy".

"No team can perform fantastically for every single game". If it's 3-0 of 4-0, then fine - but this was absolutely open until the referee said it was the end. The Reds now hold a two point lead over their title rivals but as City have a game in hand, the destination of the Premier League trophy is in their hands. Sir Alex Ferguson won the treble with United and not every game was like that.

Not Liverpool, not Manchester City can repeat that.

'We will have a good rest and we will see after when we have seen the manager and follow the rules.

"I will announce you something".

With City staying in London until its trip to Tottenham's new stadium in midweek, Sergio Aguero had traveled south on Friday but was not risked with a muscle injury. I like to know the way they did it.

"What I've been told is he didn't touch him".

To their credit, Brighton did not buckle and never allowed the Premier League champions to find their best form. "So to be champions we have to win all the games".
