Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has urged his players to increase their standards in the upcoming days if they want to progress into the next round of the UEFA Champions League at the expense of Real Madrid.
According to BBC Sport, City believe that Premier League rivals Arsenal were a chief instigator behind a collective request by as many as eight Premier League clubs for the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) not to allow a delay to the Citizens' European ban pending appeal.
Seeking to reach the FA Cup final for the second successive year, holders Manchester City were instead undone at Wembley by goals in either half from Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Next season will be Guardiola's fifth at City, meaning he will have stayed at the club longer than his previous jobs at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
The Gunners went into this match as the clear underdogs but Mikel Arteta made sure that he used his knowledge about his former boss and club to take the Gunners into the final where they will take on Chelsea.
