Manchester City advanced to the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 3-0 win over Bristol City, while 2021 winners Leicester were defeated 2-1 by second-tier Blackburn on Tuesday. Pep Guardiola’s side were never in danger of a giant-killing in the fifth round tie at Ashton Gate, thanks to Foden’s brace and a late strike from Kevin De Bruyne. Guardiola praised England forward Foden, who is regaining his peak form after an inconsistent season.
“His career was always on the rise. This season he struggled a bit and was a bit down. But he’s back for the best part of the season now “Guardiola stated this.
“His influence has been enormous. Football pays off when you put in the effort that he does.”
City will be hoping for another boost on Wednesday, when Premier League leaders Arsenal face Everton in their game in hand.
“We’re still in three different competitions. We’ll have to wait and see what happens in the future “Guardiola stated this.
Riyad Mahrez crossed to the far post, where Foden fired into the roof of the net, giving City the lead in the seventh minute.
After 74 minutes, Foden doubled City’s lead when Julian Alvarez flicked the ball towards him, who finished clinically past Max O’Leary.
De Bruyne scored the visitors’ third goal from long range in the 81st minute, ensuring a trouble-free night for the six-time FA Cup winners.
Leicester were booed off the field after Blackburn ended the Foxes’ bid for a second FA Cup final in three seasons.
