Holders Manchester City reached the English FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday after goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling secured a comfortable 2-0 win at Newcastle. De Bruyne put City ahead from the penalty spot after 36 minutes of a dominant first half. Dwight Gayle missed a great chance to equalise for Newcastle midway through the second half, blazing Allan Saint-Maximin’s pinpoint cross over from close range. It was a rare opportunity for Steve Bruce's side and a costly miss as Sterling scored moments later, curling a shot in from the edge of the penalty area. City will meet Arsenal in the last four with Chelsea taking on Manchester United in the other semi-final. Both games will be held behind closed doors at Wembley on July 18-19.
