Newcastle 0 – 2 Man City

mirror: Manchester City easily saw off Newcastle in their FA Cup quarter final clash as goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling saw them set up a clash with Arsenal in the last four.

After dominating the first half De Bruyne scored from the spot as Gabriel Jesus was pushed in the box by Fabian Schar.

Dwight Gayle had a brilliant chance to equalise for the hosts in the second half but put the ball over from just six yards out.

And Sterling made him pay just minutes later with a delightful curling shot from outside the box to effectively end the game as a contest.

Here’s what we made of the players’ performances from St James’ Park…

Newcastle United (5-4-1)
Darlow 5

Surprise call up. Dived the wrong way for the penalty

Manquillo 5

Four year deal in midweek and could be set for a long run

Schar 4

Swiss star recalled to add calm but conceded the penalty kick

Lascelles 5

Skipper knew it was a backs to the wall job

Fernandez 4

Filled his hole and got in blocks as City pressed

Rose 5

Constantly occupied by Walker playing as advanced as a full back can

Hayden 4

Recovered from soreness to anchor midfield and do the leg work

S Longstaff 4

Back after injury to add legs but was passed around

Almiron 4

Drifted about and couldn’t get on the ball

Saint-Maximin 5

A few entertaining dribbles but squandered possession

Carroll 4

Banged on Bruce’s door asking to start and was rewarded

Subs:

Gayle (Carroll 64) One of the worst ever misses

Joelinton (Almiron 64)

Lazaro (Rose 75)

Yedlin (Saint-Maximin 75)

M Longstaff (Hayden 79)

Not used: Dubravka, Shelvey, Muto, Krafth

Manchester City (4-3-3)
Bravo 6

Had so little to do he could be counted as a spectator

Walker 7

So advanced, he was more of a right winger

Otamendi 6
Cruised through the game organising and snuffing danger

Laporte 6

Won plenty of headers against Carroll after being flattened in their first duel

Mendy 7

Found loads of space on the left wing and did well with the ball

Gundogan 7

Dominated in a midfield sweeping role

Silva 8

Artistic performance finding space in a packed central midfield

Mahrez 7

Blasted a good chance over the bar early on and full of energy

De Bruyne 8

Converted the opening penalty and was in the action

Sterling 8

Great finish from edge of the box cutting in from the left

Jesus 7

Won the penalty and went close a couple of times.

Subs:

Foden (Mahrez 64)

Bernardo (Silva 64)
Cancelo (Walker 71)

Rodri (De Bruyne 71)

Not used: Ederson, Stones, Zinchenko, Sane, Harwood-Bellis
