Man City knock Middlesborough out of the FA Cup [Tweets]
Manchester City book their place in the FA Cup semi-final after eliminating Middlesborough.
Aitor Karanka’s men were beaten 2-0 at the Riverside Stadium as David Silva and Sergio Aguero got their names on the scoresheet.
Pep Guardiola will want a taste of silverware in his first season as City manager, and the Spaniard is going the right way about it. They’re unlikely to be crowned Premier League champions, so, unless momentum builds in the Champions League, the FA Cup is their best chance.
This is how Twitter reacted to City’s convincing win over Middlesborough:

Leroy Sane not having his best game but has everything Man United thought they were getting in Memphis Depay.— Dale O'Donnell (@ODonnellDale) 11 March 2017
Agüero’s improvement on pitch immense too, his movement off the ball is way better and he’s playing like a centre forward should for Pep.— Rafael Hernández (@RafaelH117) 11 March 2017
