  • GOAL!!! STERLING FIRES CITY AHEAD!! The ball is worked quickly into the feet of Jesus and the striker links up with Sterling on the edge of the box. The winger cuts inside and calmly slots his shot into the bottom-right corner past a diving Ryan! It's 1-0 to City!

  • GOAL!!! JESUS DOUBLES CITY'S LEAD!! Rodri heads the resulting corner towards the back post where Jesus is waiting to scramble home past Ryan! The striker has got himself into plenty of good positions this evening and finally has a goal to show for it. It's 2-0 to Manchester City now!

  • GOAL!!! STERLING HEADS HOME HIS SECOND!! Mendy wins the ball high up on the left and finds Sterling to his right. The winger squares for De Bruyne, who drives to the edge of the box and finds Mahrez, who cuts onto his left and lofts in a superb cross that Sterling heads emphatically home at the back post! It's 3-0 to City now!

  • GOAL!!! SILVA MAKES IT FOUR!! The Portuguese's first effort was saved by Ryan and Jesus couldn't latch onto the rebound as Dunk dived to intervene. It found its way back to Silva in space inside the box, however, and he made no mistake with the finish the second time, slotting into the bottom-left corner! It's now 4-0 to City!

  • Fernandinho also comes on to replace Rodri. It's a rare chance for the Brazilian to play in his preferred defensive midfield role, having spent much of the season at centre-back to cover for injuries.

  • GOAL!!! STERLING GETS HIS HAT-TRICK IN BIZARRE FASHION!! David Silva lofts a lovely ball forward and Sterling tries to flick it over the head of Dunk. The Brighton captain gets his head on it first and tries to play it back to his keeper, but there's confusion in the Seagulls defence as Ryan comes charging out and Sterling goes to ground, managing to nod the ball goalwards past the Australian on his way down. Burn tries desperately to clear it off the line, but he can only ping it in off the base of the post! It's now 5-0 to City!
