Pep Guardiola: “This is a final. In finals there are lots of factors. Minimal details.

"Being strong in your head, how you overcome situations.

“Mentality - these games are about mentality, not tactics.

“It will be a good test to see if we are ready to play against Madrid.”

Mikel Arteta: "What I need now is energy to transmit to my players, belief and it's the FA Cup - we have a lot of experience here and we have a history related to that. Let's go for it.

"I want to focus on what we want to do. If I worry too much about them, it's not the message that I want to send to the players."

We’re Not Really Here

Shaun Wright-Phillips, Michael Brown and Paul Dickov will all be joining us for our extra special FA Cup semi-final WNRH live show.

The pre-match show begins at 18.45 (UK), with the team returning at half-time for a brief summary of the opening 45 minutes, whilst five minutes after full-time they will be dissecting all the match action in our 30-minute post-match show.

We’re Not Really Here is available to watch on all of our official digital platforms and you can get involved sharing your thoughts and photos of your home setup using #WNRH on Twitter.
