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.
