London [UK], July 19 (ANI): Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan expressed frustration over the club's "sloppy and slow" performance against Arsenal which denied them a spot in the FA cup final.
Arsenal defeated Manchester City by 2-0 in the semi-final of the FA Cup to book their spot in the final here on Sunday. Both the goals were netted by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
"I think the energy we had starting the second half was exactly what we needed at the beginning of the game. Sometimes one very bad half is enough to lose the game and it looked like Arsenal wanted it more to go to the Final today which was the most frustrating part," the club's official website quoted Gundogan as saying.
"We had two kinds of good chances in the beginning when we won the ball in front of the Arsenal goal but after that our game was sloppy and slow and there was a lack of energy," he added.
Aubameyang's first goal came in the 19th minute which was followed by a brilliant strike in the 71st minute.
In the second semi-final clash, Manchester United will play against Chelsea today. (ANI)
