    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola speaking to Match of the Day: "Congratulations to Arsenal. We will come back stronger next season.

    "We are not in final. We tried to do it, to create more chances so I don't have regrets. We tried to do what we wanted to do.

    "We have three or four days to recover. Today we are sad and as soon as possible we will stand up.

    "We tried to change many things. Some days we did it but results show who you are, they could be better, could be worse."

    SMS Message: City have been drifting ever since they sacked Mancini. This obsession with becoming the new Barcelona, and tiki taka football has taken us backwards. Under Mancini we nearly always beat the other top teams, now we hardly ever do. Frustrating. from Dave, Manchester.

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "In games like this, you can’t expect to control all the situations but we did most of the time.

    "We performed like we would want to in a final. We did absolutely everything. Congratulations to Arsenal. We’ll improve next season. We competed here, we had more chances but the finishing was like it has been throughout the season. 

    "We played like we wanted to and that’s all. We are sad but tomorrow we have to stand up to finish the games we still have to play.

    "I don’t have regrets about the team. We just have to compete in these games. We are here for the results. Next season we will be stronger."

    SMS Message: Really poor from City. I don't care how many passes we put together if we don't create anything. All of our chances came from pretty much nothing, not from playing the system. I think this is the end for a number of City's players now. And Pep has a lot of work to do over the summer. from Gareth in Fareham

    Asked about his change of formation, Arsene Wenger said: “In this period we needed more security, a bit more defensive stability. The players looked comfortable in the position they were playing.

    "It was not only those who scored goals [who played well]. Many people, Ozil has shown again today he can fight. Overall it was a great team performance."

    Asked about his future, Wenger said: "People can question my decision but not my loyalty and commitment to the club.”

    Alexis Sanchez

    More from Arsene Wenger: "Alexis Sanchez was like the team. He had problems to start and became stronger and stronger. He is an animal, always ready to kill the opponent. He will never give up. He will be here next year because he has a contract and hopefully we will manage to extend him.

    "When at Arsenal football club we want the team to turn up in big games and I think we done that today. Overall I am very pleased. People questioned us, we went through tough times. In these times you can be divided or united and today we have shown the right response."
