The tactical adjustment has certainly had the desired effect with Arsenal beating Middlesbrough in the Premier League before prevailing past Manchester City in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final.

Sergio Aguero had put the Sky Blues ahead in the second half, however, Nacho Monreal's volley equalised soon after and Alexis Sanchez hit the net from close range in extra-time to seal the result.

"I think what I did was just to give a bit more security to a team who conceded three goals in the last three away games".

In his 50th City game, Guardiola picked an unchanged side for the first time and they were the more threatening in a boring first half despite having to replace the injured David Silva with Raheem Sterling.

"I'm not sure how many points it will take (to stay up) and the weekend proved that..."
