Bristol City 0-3 Manchester City LIVE! De Bruyne goal - FA Cup result, match stream and latest updates today

Phil Foden’s brace eased Manchester City to a 3-0 victory over second-tier Bristol City as the FA Cup holders moved into the sixth round but Leicester City’s hopes of repeating their 2021 triumph were dashed on Tuesday.

Foden struck in the seventh minute but it was not an entirely comfortable night for Pep Guardiola’s side until the England forward made it 2-0 in the 74th minute.

Kevin De Bruyne gave the scoreline an emphatic look with a sublime finish from 25 metres although it was harsh on Bristol City who had been on a 12-match unbeaten run.

Leicester were booed off after a 2-1 home defeat by second-tier Blackburn Rovers for whom Tyrhys Dolan and Sammie Szmodics were on target before a Kelechi Iheanacho reply.

Fulham reached the sixth round for the first time in 13 years with superb goals by Joao Palhinha and Manor Solomon earning them a 2-0 win over fellow top-flight side Leeds United.

Brighton and Hove Albion’s hopes of a first ever major trophy remained intact as Evan Ferguson’s first-half goal sealed a 1-0 win over second-tier Stoke City.

Full match report: Foden fantastic in FA Cup win as Man City sail into quarter-finals

21:57 , Jonathan Gorrie

An excellent Phil Foden performance helped Manchester City past Bristol City to make it into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Foden opened the scoring with a powerful finish from close range in the seventh minute after patient play from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahez, with the latter firing a ball across the six-yard box, allowing the England star to fire home at the back post.

Still, where many teams even in the Premier League would have faltered, the Robins roared to make it a breathless opening 45 minutes. Alex Scott and Sam Bell, in particular, stood out as the home side looked to expose a high backline in front of a raucous home support.

A big night for Phil Foden!

Out of the team since the World Cup, Phil Foden got back on the scoresheet against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola expecting tough Bristol City challenge

17:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

While the Premier League champions are clear favourites of course, Pep Guardiola is not taking the challenge of Bristol City lightly.

“They have no defeats in their past 12 games,” he said. “That gives me a lot of information.

“It means they are there, and the scouts there are a good team. Their manager has a lot of experience and I know him from when he managed Leicester and Watford.

“It’s always tough when you go away from home against a Championship team. At home, it would be different but we are going to fly there tomorrow, try to do a good game and to go through.

“It’s an important competition and it is a serious team that will play there.”

Head to head (h2h) history and results

17:37 , Jonathan Gorrie

Bristol City actually edge the historical head to head, but have lost five of the last six meetings dating all the way back to 1979.

The two sides have met in the League Cup three times this century, with Manchester City winning 2-1 in 2007 and then triumphing in both legs of a semi-final back in 2018.

Bristol City wins: 10

Man City wins: 9

Draws: 6

Prediction: Man City to win 3-1

17:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

Cup ties against lower-league opposition have generally been a walk in the park for Manchester City over recent times, with a number of absolute maulings coming to mind.

However, this is likely to be an altogether tougher test with Bristol City on that long unbeaten streak and looking up in 2023 after a mixed season otherwise.

You’d back Pep’s men to get the job done here with room to spare, especially if he sticks to his pledge of playing a strong team amid their title push, but there are likely to be one or two hairy moments along the way.

Manchester City to win, 3-1.


Man City team news: De Bruyne could play

17:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

Guardiola has pledged to play a “serious team” on Wednesday as he expects a tough test from a Bristol City side high on confidence.

Defenders John Stones and Aymeric Laporte are both back in training after a hamstring injury and illness respectively, while Kevin De Bruyne is also feeling much better after his own bout of illness that saw him miss the trip to Leipzig and stay on the bench at Bournemouth.
