Manchester City lost to Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final today, effectively ending any chance of a trophy for Pep and his players in his debut season. Alexis Sanchez scored in extra time to give Arsenal the 2-1 victory at Wembley and booked their place in the final against Chelsea.
Missed chances were rife for both teams and referee Craig Pawson was put under the spotlight several times, making some questionable decisions. Lack of options, lessons for next season and the midweek fixture were talking points for Blues on Twitter.
Here’s what you had to say:
Story of our season?
Story of our season, really. Chances enough to win the game, refereeing decision gone against us, couldn't get over the line #mcfc

Lack of any real options?
One final thought. Having to chase vital games with Navas, Delph, Fernando & Iheanacho on the field of play can never happen again #mcfc

Don't understand why, at 1-2, we took off Raheem rather than Navas #MCFC.

Lessons to be learnt.

No "first year" excuse, it's incredibly disappointing City won't win a trophy this year. Need to turn their shit around in the summer. #MCFC

Big overhaul required in the summer.

Though Yaya was our best player today, but without David silva we are ordinary and poor. #mcfc

Well football can be a cruel game. If it wasn't for bad luck we'd have no luck at all #mcfc

Looking to the future.
On a brighter note only 2 points behind Liverpool with two games in hand #mcfc
