Manchester City joins Arsenal, Chelsea, Man U in FA Cup semifinals

Holder Manchester City reached the FA Cup semifinals after goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling secured an untroubled 2-0 win at Newcastle.

Dwight Gayle missed a great chance to equalize for Newcastle midway through the second half, blazing Allan Saint-Maximin’s pinpoint cross over from close range.

It was a rare opportunity for Steve Bruce’s side and a costly miss as Sterling scored moments later, curling a shot in from the edge of the box following a quick counterattack in the 68th.

Spanish midfielder Dani Ceballos netted in the 91st for Arsenal with a low shot, just four minutes after David McGoldrick had equalized from close range.

Forward Nicolas Pepe’s penalty put Arsenal ahead midway through the first half, after United midfielder John Lundstram had an early header ruled out for offside.

In Sunday’s only Premier League game, striker Danny Ings scored twice to reach 18 goals as Southampton won 3-1 at struggling Watford.
