Report & Ratings: Middlesbrough 0-2 Man City – 11/03/17

Goals from David Silva and Sergio Aguero earned City a deserved win over Middlesbrough and a place in the FA Cup semi-finals

REPORT

Silva scored just three minutes into the game from six yards out after Pablo Zabaleta’s first time cross fell kindly to the Spaniard’s feet.

Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Guzan produced a number of fine saves to deny the Blues a second, but the Sergio Aguero finally made the result safe  when he converted from Sane’s low cross to earn his side a Wembley semi-final.

City have reached the last four of the FA Cup for the first time in four years as Guardiola aims to win some silverware in his first season in English football.

Pep also had the luxury of taking off Sane and Aguero before City’s second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie in Monaco on Wednesday, where will be looking to hold onto a 5-3 lead after a thrilling first leg.
