City ease in quarter-finals

Published Add your comment

Mario Balotelli scored his 10th goal in 18 games for Manchester City as the Blues advanced to the FA Cup quarter-finals with an easy 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.

City profited from Gerard Houllier's surprising decision to make eight changes for the visitors and were in front after only four minutes through Yaya Toure.

Balotelli then finished off a sensational second before David Silva wrapped up the scoring 20 minutes from time to book a last-eight clash with Championship outfit Reading at Eastlands on March 13.
