    Pep Guardiola revealed his Man City side will now ‘struggle to focus’ on the Premier League, and noted where his attentions now lay for the rest of the season.

    Man City relinquished their grasp on the Premier League midweek, but still maintain a firm hold on the domestic cups after cruising to a 2-0 victory over Newcastle.

    The win sets up an enticing clash with Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals, and Guardiola revealed his side’s attentions will no longer be on the Premier League for the remainder of the season.

    Speaking to the BBC following the win, Pep said: “We are in the semi-finals.

    “It was not easy to attack against a team defending so deep but it was a good performance. I am happy to go back to London, to Wembley.

    “After the defeat against Chelsea, now in the Premier League we are struggling to focus.

    “We are close in the Champions League and there is a gap. We are at Wembley again and were winners last season so that is so good.

    “We are of course preparing for Madrid now.”

    The opening goal came via the ever-reliable boot of Kevin De Bruyne, who was also celebrating his 29th birthday.

    “We started really well,” said the midfield ace. “We were sharp and put them under pressure.

    “We should have scored more. We had a few problems with penaltes this year. The gaffer asked me to step up and I have scored a couple now.

    “In my career I have played lots of positions and the gaffer asked me to try something new because Newcastle play with a back five. I just work for the team.

    On playing behind closed doors, the Belgian added: “We know it is really weird and it is not something I enjoy, but we are professionals and we need to keep going.”
