Wells & Huddersfield To Face Man City Again

Pablo Zabaleta tapped home a third before half time with Aguero and Kelechi Iheanacho making sure of City's place in the next round with goals after the break.

"We are in the moment where we had a few tough injuries like Gundogan and Jesus but the others we had not too many injured".

Pep Guardiola hailed Sergio Aguero's performance as the "best ever" of his reign as Manchester City manager after the Argentina striker scored twice in a 5-1 victory over Huddersfield in their FA Cup fifth-round replay.

Monk, who has already served a touchline ban this season after being sent to the stands at Bristol City in September, was hit with a one-game ban after admitting his own charge of misconduct following a clash that was sparked by the Leeds head coach barging into Wagner after he had run on to the pitch to celebrate Hefele's victor with his team.

City travel to Middlesborough on the 11th of March for a quarterfinal tie and Guardiola has an excellent chance of winning a trophy in his maiden season in charge of the cash-rich club.

Huddersfield, indeed, had the audacity to take the lead, through a seventh minute effort from former City academy player Harry Bunn, a goal which yet again highlighted the weaknesses in the home team's goalkeeping and defence.

City put the tie beyond all doubt inside the final 20 minutes when Sterling's low cross to the near post was turned beyond Coleman by Aguero. "We are so so happy the way he played". "We are going to decide game by game", the Spaniard said.

"I just congratulated him on how he played at Huddersfield and how he played today. I just congratulate him on how he played".

"I am safe with both goalkeepers I have (Bravo and Willy Caballero)". The people enjoy the way we play.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner, who had to watch from the stands due to a touchline ban, felt his side failed to do themselves justice.

But the England No 1's future at Manchester City looks to be over after Guardiola ruled out a return.

Guardiola and the City team trained in Abu Dhabi last week and having spoken with Sheikh Mansour, who bought City in 2008 but has not visited Manchester since 2010, the Catalan came away convinced that he can stay for as long as he wants.
