Johnny On The Spot: 36 years since City won at Arsenal. Another record broken. The bitterness that cascaded down from the Emirates seats tonight has deepened. The incessant barracking of Samir Nasri that Arsene Wenger warned against served only to galvanise City`s team spirit as they carried the clearly shocked Frenchman through the game to an outpouring of delight. Bang on cue, Arsenal`s discipline started to go again following City`s late winner and continued into the tunnel...City head into only the 6th League Cup Semi Final in the club`s history and having now worked hard to within one game of yet another Wembley trip, the City squad will take on anyone. As a fanbase and a squad, we`re well used to relentless stick and this win in particular is one of the most pleasing of the season to date considering the constant criticism of City originating from Arsenal. It doesn`t matter who they put up against us tonight, we will relish this...This was a hard fought contest where a lively but Van Persie-less Arsenal became more and more recognisably toothless and ran out of ideas yet again following Costel "The Giant" Pantimon`s brilliant saves whereas City dominated possession without creating from midfield. The contest was ultimately settled by a moment of sheer class. Edin Dzeko`s brilliant charge from the City penalty area, not dissimilar to his burst forward late on at Liverpool set up Adam Johnson and Sergio Aguero for a superb interchange. This was rich reward for the big Bosnian`s full on effort tonight....Roberto Mancini gave almost an entire team rest tonight and got his side`s balance and tactics spot on. The Blues second string seamlessly continued Mancio`s by now trademark passing game and showed that a siege mentality, focus and strong spirit run right through his squad. Norwich, you are next.

Not our most convincing win, and you could see the rustiness in both sides - but a win's a win and we'll enjoy the semi whoever we draw.

I'm sure that the bindippers will field a very strong team in the semis. RM will have to think hard about his team for those games. There's a fine line between being loyal to the second string and throwing the tie away.
