Guardiola praises Foden then heads for a glass of wine as City win in FA Cup

The remaining clubs in the FA Cup will find out their quarter-final fate tonight as the draw is being held after the conclusion of Sheffield United’s encounter with Tottenham.

Phil Foden was back to his best as Manchester City progressed through their fifth round tie. Foden netted twice as City saw off a plucky Bristol City at Ashton Gate with Kevin De Bruyne adding a third to end the Championship side’s 12-game unbeaten run.

Fellow Premier League teams Fulham and Brighton also secured their spots in the last eight with wins yesterday evening but Leicester City slumped out of the competition in a 2-1 defeat to Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

Wednesday night’s fixtures see Southampton take on Grimsby, Burnley face Fleetwood Town and Manchester United clash with West Ham before the Blades host Spurs at 7.55pm. Current FA Cup holders, Liverpool, have been already been knocked out of the competition meaning there will be new winners of English football’s most prized knockout competition.

Manchester United produce late fightback to beat West Ham in the FA Cup

Sunday’s 2-0 victory against Newcastle secured the Old Trafford giants’ first silverware since 2017 but the manager’s immediate message to his players was “get back to work”.

United looked set to be brought back down to earth with a bump after Said Benrahma put David Moyes’ West Ham into a deserved lead at Old Trafford.

But Nayef Aguerd’s 77th-minute own goal sparked an impressive turnaround, with teenager Garnacho’s superb 90th-minute effort followed by a stoppage-time strike by Fred in a 3-1 triumph.

Southampton suffer embarrasing FA Cup giantkilling by Grimsby

Midfielder Holohan capitalised on moments of madness from Saints pair Lyanco and Duje Caleta-Car to fire the Mariners into the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time since the Second World War.

Croatia defender Caleta-Car atoned for his mistake by halving the deficit for the top-flight’s bottom club with 25 minutes to go.

But the 1976 FA Cup winners could not prevent another major setback of a miserable season as they crashed out at the hands of the lowest-ranked side remaining in the tournament.
