Manchester City made history with their FA Cup semi-final victory over Chelsea.

Bernardo Silva’s 84th-minute strike gave the Citizens victory in a controversial afternoon at Wembley.

Chelsea fans were furious when the ball appeared to hit Jack Grealish’s arm from Cole Palmer’s free-kick, but no penalty was awarded after a VAR check. And to make matters worse, City were awarded a goal kick.

Nicolas Jackson had several chances to score for the Blues but was unable to take them as Mauricio Pochettino’s side succumbed.

With the victory for City they completed a nice piece of club history, which shows how good Pep Guadiola’s team is.

According to OptaJoe, City are unbeaten in their last 29 games in all competitions, the longest run in the club’s history.

During this time they have won 23 matches and drawn six.

However, there is some controversy over the statistic as the Citizens were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.

Fans took to social media to question the record, with one saying: ‘So who won the Champions League quarter-final?’

‘Are they still in the Champions League?’ asked another.

A final supporter joked: Who are they playing against in the semi-final?’

A 3-3 draw at the Bernabeu saw Guardiola’s side take control of the second leg at the Etihad before falling behind.

They managed to reduce the score to 1–1 before losing in the penalty shoot-out, with the match classified as a draw by FIFA despite losing on penalties.

“They literally lost the last game on penalties,” another soccer fan commented on X.

Interestingly, the 1-1 draw against Real Madrid is recorded as a loss on Man City’s website, with the last defeat coming in December.

A 1-0 defeat at Villa Park on December 6 was the last time Guardiola’s side lost and have continued their historic run since.

With Arsenal returning to the top of the Premier League after beating Wolves on Saturday, City will be hoping they can extend their unbeaten run to put the Gunners ahead again and lift the Premier League table.

The reigning champions face a double after progressing to the FA Cup final.
