Manchester City – Newcastle 2-0 (2-0)

Manchester City became the first club to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup in six straight seasons, following their victory over Newcastle. The light blues were in full control from start to finish.

Bernardo Silva scored twice before the break and both goals were via Newcastle defenders. First, he sent City into the lead after 13 minutes through the leg of Dan Burn. Then he scored from almost exactly the same position, this time via an unfortunate Sven Botman.

Just before the break, Haaland was stepped on by Fabian Schär, who dropped the second yellow card. The Norwegian was clearly in pain and had a slight limp afterwards.

Viaplay expert Lars Tjærnås believes that referee Simon Hooper failed to give cards because it would have resulted in expulsion.

– Maybe a rough claim, but I stand by it, Tjærnås said live.

Haaland was clearly upset and spoke to Hooper afterwards.

Manchester City have won the FA Cup twice since the 2018/19 season and are the reigning champions.
