Phil Foden was on fine form as Manchester City cruised past Bristol City and into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 3-0 victory on Tuesday.

Foden scored within seven minutes to give the Premier League champions an early lead in what looked destined to be a routine win for Pep Guardiola's side.

But Bristol City, buoyed by a dizzying atmosphere at Ashton Gate, came back stronger in the second half, and it needed two moments of magic from Kevin De Bruyne for City to take complete control of proceedings.

His through balled helped Julian Alvarez to eventually set up Foden's second, before the Belgium international took it upon himself to fire home a textbook long-ranger nine minutes from time, with City cruising to the sixth round in style.
