Manchester City showed their class once again with a 2-0 win at The Etihad over Chelsea in the FA Cup.

A first-half strike from Stevan Jovetic put the home side ahead, just minutes after he’d hit the bar. While Chelsea looked to break down the City defence, they were unable to break the deadlock. Things were made worse in the second half when Samir Nasri linked up neatly with David Silva to put the game out of reach.

Sunderland 1-0 Southampton

Gus Poyet’s Sunderland dumped Southampton out of the FA Cup thanks to a second-half strike from Craig Gardner.

Most of the pre-match build-up focused on Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to make nine changes to his starting line-up from the team that faced Hull in the Premier League last weekend.

However the Black Cats seemed to be unphased by the host of new faces in the Southampton starting line-up, and after a quiet first-half were quick to get on the scoresheet after the break. Gardner drilled a shot from 25 yards out which went in off the bar and ultimately cemented Sunderland’s place in the FA Cup Quarter Final. The only real chance for Southampton came from Rickie Lambert, who missed from four yards out after a low cross from Nathaniel Clyne.

Elsewhere Wigan Athletic knocked out Cardiff City with a 2-1 after strikes from Chris McCann and Ben Watson.
