Middlesbrough 0-2 Man City: Guardiola's men into last four

Boro's hopes of securing a semi-final trip to Wembley were ended by Manchester City on Saturday as Pep Guardiola's men eased to sixth-round victory at the Riverside Stadium.

Man City confirmed Playing Lineup: Bravo; Zabaleta, Stones, Otamendi, Clichy; Toure; Sterling, De Bruyne, Silva, Sane; Aguero.

Pep Guardiola's side found the crucial second goal in the 67th minute when Aguero tucked home Sane's cross from close range.

And the former Bayern boss' decision paid off as City were well in control throughout the game, eventually cruising to a comfortable win to prevent a repeat of the FA Cup exit versus Boro in 2014-15.

In other FA Cup quarter-final matches, Tottenham Hotspur will host Millwall on Sunday while defending champions Manchester United will be guests of Premier League leaders, Chelsea on Monday.

"When you attack good, you defend good", said Guardiola, who, typically, turned a blind eye to an bad first-half fumble from Bravo.

Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham are engaged
Wedding bells are in the air for Colton Hayes and Jeff Leatham . "I SAID YES! " Haynes captioned the photo . This is gonna be the best thing ever, and you have to call me to tell me how it worked out".

Joe Hart is not expecting a return to the Premier League after his loan spell at Torino with the England goalkeeper believing he is "surplus to requirements" at parent club Manchester City. "Go there and try to win the game".

They might have done just that had Sane delivered his 16th-minute cross more accurately to Aguero after being played in behind Antonio Barragan. He has two goals and three assists to his name.

City came into the match on a 10-game unbeaten run across all competitions and made the ideal start after opening the scoring inside three minutes.

Guardiola said: "It's so attractive and that's why I'd like to be there". The way that we approached the game today, conceding the goal at the beginning of the game, the reaction was good.

Nevertheless, winning the FA Cup and guaranteeing Champions League football for next season would constitute a successful debut season at City, according to Dunne. "But if we had taken 50% of the chances we created this season, we'd be in a better position now".

"We need to improve that, but I am happy and we can play Monaco".
