De Bruyne and Sterling have pushed Manchester City

In the fourth round of the FA Cup Manchester City has played away match against Cardiff City. The rival of the Josep Guardiola’s team was strong - the Bluebirds are the member of the leading group of the Championship and can claim for getting into the Premier League. Cup tournaments can cause a stir therefore the Citizens had no chance to relax before their trip to Wales.

Josep Guardiola really considers FA Cup to be very serious if we look at the starting lineup of Manchester City. Only Claudio Bravo, İlkay Gündoğan and Bernardo Silva from the immediate reserve have been included there. We should mention the come back of Vincent Kompany and also the absence of the bright central forward. The group of attack consists of Leroy Sane, Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling.

Manchester City had managed to demonstrate its superiority in a class on the 8th minute of that match. Kevin de Bruyne had kicked in the left bottom corner. Shortly after the Welshmen had quite good chance to even the score. Junior Hoilett was close to score a goal, however Claudio Bravo has caught a ball literally on the line of the gates.

Around the 25th minute the ball for the second time has flown to the gates of the hosts but the goal of Bernardo Silva has been cancelled because of a passive offside of Leroy Sane. By the end of the first half the team of Josep Guardiola could strengthen its score advantage. Bernardo Silva from the left wing have made nice cross and Raheem Sterling has accurately headed and the goalkeeper has been forced to give up.

In a break Josep Guardiola nevertheless has decided to let his center forward play and Sergio Aguero has replaced Leroy Sane. But Raheem Sterling could end the match with defeat on the 53rd minute. He met with the goalkeeper, had won over Neill Etheridge but Shaone Morrisonn has disturbed the football player from Manchester City. In fifteen minutes till the end of the meeting the guests could loudly finish this match. Raheem Sterling after a smart pass from Kevin de Bruyne has met with the goalkeeper, however couldn't score.

The final score- 0:2. Manchester City has won over Cardiff City and has got into the 5th round of the FA Cup.
