Sane aims to disappoint Gunners again in FA Cup clash

Manchester City in-form forward Leroy Sane has vowed to make it three goals out of three matches against Arsenal this season. 

The 21-year-old scored against the Gunners in City’s 2-1 victory at the Etihad in December and in the 2-2 draw at the Emirates this month. Arsenal trail City by seven points in the Premier League table, but this will matter little in the FA Cup, which both sides will aim to win in bid to save face this season. 

“Can I score again? I hope so – I’ve enjoyed my two games against Arsenal so far this season and I’m going to try to make it three goals in three games against them.” Sane told Mancity.com.

“I’m really looking forward to playing at Wembley. It’s my first trip there and everyone has told me it’s a nice stadium with a great atmosphere and we’ll have more than 30,000 fans there making plenty of noise so I can’t wait.

Sane’s pace is likely to pose a big threat to Arsenal on the Wembley pitch which offers plenty of free space as it is longer and wider than the standard. Arsenal will benefit from defending deep or playing three men at the back as in against Middlesbrough earlier in the week.

Sane, however, believes the similarities of the Wembley pitch to the West Ham one, where City have scored 12 goals in three matches this season, will give his side the edge.

He said: “Yeah I think the pitch will suit our style of play and I’ve heard it might be similar to West Ham’s, but no matter where we are playing, we just want to go there and win the game because we want to reach the final then win the competition. We are all motivated and ready.”
