FA Cup

City advance to the fifth round after defeating Fulham

The City class showed in that second half as they powered through to the fourth round.

The Fulham resistance prevalent in the first half waned severely in the second period.

And they met Mahrez’s two quick-fire goals with no reply as Pep Guardiola’s men closed out the game at a canter.

The fifth round beckons for City, and should they play with the ferocity they did in the second half, there’ll be few who can stop them going forward.

Starting Lineup:

MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Zack Steffen;

Kyle Walker, John Stones, Nathan Ake, Joao Cancelo;

Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan;

Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden.
