Leroy Sane is aiming to continue his hot streak against Arsenal in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final as he plays at Wembley for the first time.

The Manchester City winger has scored in both Premier League games against Arsenal this season and heads into the semi-final in fine form.

Sane has recorded two goals in his last four games for City and the Germany international is excited to experience his Wembley debut.

"Can I score again? I hope so," Sane told the Manchester City website. "I've enjoyed my two games against Arsenal so far this season and I'm going to try to make it three goals in three games against them.

"I'm really looking forward to playing at Wembley. It's my first trip there and everyone has told me it's a nice stadium with a great atmosphere and we'll have more than 30,000 fans there making plenty of noise so I can't wait.

"I think the pitch will suit our style of play and I've heard it might be similar to West Ham's, but no matter where we are playing, we just want to go there and win this game because we want to reach the final and then win the competition. We are all motivated and ready."

A strong first season in English football has earned Sane a PFA Young Player of the Year nomination, although the 21-year-old is not heavily fancied to win.

"I'm very proud to be nominated, but it's going to be a very tough award to win with players like Romelu Lukaku and Dele Alli also nominated, but it's nice to be in among such great company," Sane added.

"As for my form and my season so far, I feel it is getting better. At the beginning things were a bit slow as I got used to the pace and I had to improve.


"But now, I'm really enjoying it, things are getting better and better and to be able to play with such great players who are now understanding how I play is a privilege, so things are going well.

"I just needed to settle in, find my feet and get used to the Premier League which is completely different from the Bundesliga."
