Report & Ratings: Man City 5-1 Huddersfield – 01/03/17

City cruised into the quarter finals of the FA Cup after coming back from an early goal against Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield in their fifth-round replay

REPORT

After a 0-0 draw in the original tie last month, the visitors led early on when Harry Bunn’s shot went through Claudio Bravo’s legs.

But tap-ins from Leroy Sane and Pablo Zabaleta, with Sergio Aguero’s clinical penalty in between, effectively killed the tie before half time.

Aguero swept in Raheem Sterling’s cross at the near post for City’s fourth, before substitute Kelechi Iheanacho poked in with the last kick of the game.

City’s reward is a quarter-final trip to Premier League rivals Middlesbrough on Saturday 11th March (12:15 GMT).
