HighlightsManchester City kept alive hopes of reclaiming the trophy they won in 2011 by inflicting Chelsea’s first FA Cup defeat at new Wembley. Goals from Sami Nasri and Sergio Aguero fired City into a 2-0 lead before Demba Ba pulled one back for the holders but it was City who progressed to the final where they will face Wigan Athletic.Chelsea ‘unlucky with the result’, says LuizPost-match reaction from Wembley Stadium on Sunday after Manchester City defeated Chelsea 2-1 in their FA Cup semi-final encounter.SOUNDBITE (English) David Platt, Manchester City first team coach:
(On reaching FA Cup final). “Delighted that we’re there, delighted that it’s on the horizon and we can look forward to it. But that’s all we can do is look forward to it. We have several games between now and then that we’ve got to concentrate on fully first of all, utilise the squad, and make sure that we finish strongly in the league too.”SOUNDBITE (English) Vincent Kompany, Manchester City captain:
(On the final). “This is a stadium, probably a pitch as well that will suit Wigan, that suits us as well. I expect it to be a good game because they know how to play ball, and we do. For defenders it’s always a bit harder when it’s open, but I do feel like it’s going to be a great for the neutrals again.”

SOUNDBITE (English) Rafael Benitez, Chelsea interim manager:
“When you play against Manchester City – they won the league the last year – it’s a top side. They have a very good group of players, so they can make the difference in the middle or in attack, or in defence they are quite strong. So you knew that it could be a good result or a bad result – it’s normal.

SOUNDBITE (English) Rafael Benitez, Chelsea interim manager:
(On late incident involving Fernando Torres and Vincent Kompany). “A key part of the game is the penalty not given to Fernando Torres, could make a big difference. But you have to give credit to City because it’s a very good team. But still, I think this (penalty) decision could make a big difference.”

SOUNDBITE (English) David Luiz, Chelsea:
“I feel a little bit like that, the team was a little bit tired. When you don’t have the ball you cannot do things, so their guys controlled the first half most of the game with the possession, and their great players in the middle controlled the game – in the first half it was difficult. But the team was intelligent for the second half, unlucky that in the first minutes their guys scored a second goal, but after that the team showed what is Chelsea and (that it) is a big club, created a lot of opportunities, controlled all the game… but unlucky with the result, just that.”
