Sub Aguero sends City into semis

Published Add your comment

A late strike from substitute Sergio Aguero was enough for Manchester City to reach the semi-finals of the Carling Cup as they won at Arsenal for the first time in 28 attempts with a 1-0 victory.

The hosts had created the better chances before Aguero's 83rd-minute strike but City's stand-in goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon pulled off more than one fantastic save to keep the scores level.

Arsenal's young winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had impressed throughout but the strike-force of Marouane Chamakh and Park Ju-young looked toothless without captain Robin van Persie's presence.
