    Manchester City remain on course to compete for silverware on four fronts this season and the first of those trophies is now within touching distance. Pep Guardiola’s team will face Arsenal or Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on 25 February after another masterclass from Kevin De Bruyne brought Bristol City’s terrific run to the semi-finals to a Womens Robbie Ray Jersey memorable end.

    De Bruyne, who signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract 24 hours before this second leg, scored the winner with the last kick of the game but it was the wonderful assist for Sergio Agüero, four minutes after the interval, that took the breath away on a night when Bristol City refused to go quietly.

    Lee Johnson’s side contributed to their own downfall by handing Manchester City the lead two minutes before the interval, when Leroy Sané punished a mistake from Hordur Magnusson, and the Championship club could have been forgiven for surrendering when Agüero scored his 23rd goal of the Marc-Edouard Vlasic Jersey season. Instead, they showed tremendous courage and spirit to claw their way back into the game through Marlon Pack’s towering header and Aden Flint’s injury-time equaliser to spark hopes of an improbable comeback.

    De Bruyne, however, was not finished for the evening and tapped in a cross from Sané to restore their lead. When the final whistle followed seconds later, applause broke out from three sides of the ground as the Bristol City supporters got to their feet to acknowledge the C. J. Beathard Authentic Jersey efforts of a team that eliminated four Premier League clubs en route to the semi-finals, including Manchester United, and pushed Guardiola’s team all the way. “The fact is it’s taken them two injury-time goals in both legs to beat us,” said Johnson, the Bristol City manager.

    For Guardiola, there was personal satisfaction to be taken from the fact that he will return to Wembley, the stadium where he won the European Cup as a player with Barcelona in 1992, and he expressed his happiness with an “amazing” first-half performance against Bristol City that prevented the home team from feeding off the energy of the raucous home support.

    As for the idea that the first trophy of his reign is close, Guardiola politely made a point that the process, and not just the end result, should be cherished. “I know we will be judged for the titles, the trophies that we are going to win, but, I’m sorry guys, for the last six months we are so happy,” the Manchester City manager said. “We won a lot of games. Every weekend we were so happy. In the training sessions we were happy and that belonged to us. Nobody can take away what we have done. But, of course, all the teams are judged by the titles they are able to win and we are going to try.”

    Agüero’s Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey late header in the first leg had shifted the balance of this tie in Manchester City’s favour, especially with away goals counting only after extra time, but the Bristol City supporters had turned up daring to dream and determined to make themselves heard. There was a flag placed on every home fan’s seat and it was quite an atmosphere early on.

    Manchester City, though, were dominant from the outset. They won a corner within 12 seconds and that set the tone for what followed as Guardiola’s team controlled possession and attacked with intensity. It was relentless at times and on the few occasions that the home team seized the ball, Guardiola’s players pressed aggressively and snapped at their heels to win it back almost immediately.

    Chances came and went for Manchester City, with the best of them falling to David Silva, whose angled shot was brilliantly turned away by Luke Steele, and it had started to look as though their opponents would get to half-time on level terms. They would have done but for a mix-up in their own area that culminated in Magnusson trying to shepherd the ball out of play. Bernardo Silva picked the left-back’s pocket and the loose ball ran into the path of Sané, whose low shot found the back of the net despite Flint’s best attempts to keep it out.

    Johnson went for broke and introduced a second striker at the start of the second half but within four minutes of the restart the game appeared over. Sané released De Bruyne in one of those devastating counterattacks that start on the edge of their area and the Belgian showed some dexterous footwork before delivering an inch-perfect pass for Agüero, who took a touch before dispatching a superb shot beyond Steele and into the far corner. cheap jerseys wholesale cheap jerseys wholesale cheap jerseys for sale cheap nba jerseys nike nfl jerseys china baseball jerseys cheap nike nfl jerseys cheap wholesale nfl jerseys
