RE­VENGE IS SWEET FOR CITY

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FIFTH ROUND -

GOALS from Ste­fan Jovetic and Samir Nasri saw Manch­ester City get the bet­ter of Chelsea to ad­vance to the last eight of the FA Cup.

City, last year’s los­ing fi­nal­ists, were in dom­i­nant form and ex­acted re­venge for their re­cent league de­feat to their ti­tle ri­vals, also at the Eti­had Sta­dium.

Jovetic, who had ear­lier hit the cross­bar, broke the dead­lock in the first half with a low shot that went in off the post.

Nasri then marked his re­turn from in­jury with City’s sec­ond af­ter a neat one-two with David Silva.

Joleon Lescott had a goal dis­al­lowed for the hosts but Chelsea were well beaten while City join Sun­der­land and last sea­son’s cham­pi­ons Wi­gan in the draw for the quar­ter-fi­nals.
