FA Cup: Mahrez seals big win for City

FA Cup fifth round news and more: weekend football countdown – live!

"I am very proud of the players".

City led through Leroy Sane's 51st-minute opener before Foden's run and finish made it 2-0, and another fine strike from the 18-year-old restored their two-goal lead a minute after Padraig Amond halved the deficit.

The win secured City's passage into the last eight of the competition whilst also ensuring they remain in contention for four trophies. And our team duly obliged by leaving us at halftime with a game hanging on a knife edge. "The big mistake is believing you are better than anyone", Guardiola said.

That is in part down to the humiliating 1-0 defeat at Wigan in last year's fifth round - when Guardiola delivered a now-famous team talk captured by the Amazon cameras.

The reigning Premier League champions face a visit to the Liberty Stadium for the tie.

FA Cup quarter-final draw: Who will face who?

"We had to show professionalism and keep the ball moving and they exhausted in the end". We know what happened last season at Wigan. These days I still dream of seeing us lift the Cup but my experience is that in the final tickets are given to so many sponsors and FA members that there are relatively few around for an ordinary fan.

Could this be the year City reach the final and, dare we say it, win the elusive UEFA Champions League?

Skipper Vincent Kompany, Benjamin Mendy and Eliaquim Mangala all returned to training on Monday afternoon after several weeks on the sidelines.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola singled out midfielder David Silva for special praise after watching his side overcome Newport 4-1 in the FA Cup on Saturday.

"Pep came over after the game and congratulated me that I'd scored, and when you hear that from someone like him it means a lot".

Despite playing just two games, no side has had more different goalscorers in the FA Cup this season than Manchester City (9, level with AFC Wimbledon).

City survived a tricky first half against a side that had already beaten Leicester City and Middlesbrough and nearly took the lead through a Tyreeq Bakinson header that was superbly saved by Ederson.
