Mahrez’s hat-trick sends Man City to FA Cup final

Riyad Mahrez, Algeria forward, in a sensational performance on Saturday, April 22, at Wembley scores hat-trick to send Manchester City into the FA Cup final,  3-0 win over Sheffield United.

After his 42nd-minute penalty broke Sheffield United’s resistance at the end of the first half, Mahrez ran through a parting defence just after the hour mark to add his second before sweeping in a fine third in the 66th minute from Jack Grealish’s cross to leave City supporters dreaming of a historic treble.

Pep Guardiola’s side will now face either Manchester United or Brighton for the trophy on June 3, 2023.

City had lost at the semi-final stage of the competition three years running but their FA Cup final appearance will form part of their hunt for three trophies at the end of this season.

They host wobbling Premier League leaders Arsenal in a crucial game at the Etihad on Wednesday night, while a Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid is to come in May, as City aim to replicate the 1998/99 treble heroics of their neighbours Manchester United.

Sheffield United, however, can secure a return to the Premier League with victory over West Brom and cap a memorable season on Wednesday, April 26.
