Aguero's double leads Man City into FA Cup quarterfinals

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has leapt to the defence of under-fire goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Sergio Aguero scored twice, taking his season tally to 22 goals, and Leroy Sane, Pablo Zabaleta and Kelechi Iheanacho were also on the mark for a City team that scored five goals for a second consecutive game, after their thrilling 5-3 Champions League win over Monaco.

Manchester City cruised into the FA Cup quarter-finals after fighting back to beat much-changed Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield in their fifth-round replay.

Two more City goals then followed in quick succession, firstly via a penalty from Sergio Aguero after Nicolás Otamendi was fouled in the box.

Manager Pep Guardiola was keen to avoid an embarrassing upset, sending out a strong starting XI which had young Aleix Garcia as the only unfamiliar player in the line up.

Aguero scored his 21st and 22nd goals of the season as City recovered from an early Claudio Bravo mistake to ease into the last eight.

Villarreal v Real Madrid 26 February 2017
The Yellow Submarine tore apart Atletico Madrid 3-0 at El Madrigal and they held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in an entertaining match. What's happened has happened. "We know that they are very good opponents, defensively organised and who defend as a block".

Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus' arrival in January saw Aguero drop down to the bench until the starlet suffered a broken fifth metatarsal in his foot at Bournemouth last month.

"One thing is that the club officially says it and another thing is to tell me".

But the morning after the night before it emerged that Aguero was still waiting to be personally informed that he remains part of Guardiola's plans.

"I have three months to give my best and as I always said we will see in June", he said.

Guardiola and City have stated they want the Argentine to stay at the club, but the striker says they've not told him this.

The Argentina forward says he does not want to leave City, who he joined from Atletico Madrid for £38m in 2011, but that it will be in the summer before his future is resolved.
