Aguero at the double as City dismiss Leeds

Manchester City proved far too strong for Leeds United as a Sergio Aguero double helped the Premier League champions to a 4-0 win the FA Cup.

Roberto Mancini rang the changes following defeat to Southampton last weekend, with Joe Hart the high-profile absentee at the Etihad Stadium for the fifth round clash.

And, the Italians changes had an instant impact, when Yaya Toure opened the scoring for the hosts on five minutes.

Carlos Tevez and David Silva were involved in some good build-up play around the edge of the box, and the powerful Ivorian rounded keeper Jamie Ashdown to put City in-front.

The lead was doubled ten minutes later when Aguero went down under a challenge from Tom Lees just outside the six-yard box. A soft decision, but the Argentine stepped-up and slotted the ball past the keeper to put the Whites in serious early trouble.

Aguero was involved in the third goal on 52 minutes as well, crossing from the touchline for compatriot Carlos Tevez to bundle home from close range.

Neil Warnock’s side were heading out, but not before the former Atletico Madrid star struck again, with his final effort going in off the far post after some sloppy Leeds defending.

The Citizens now go into the had for the quarter-finals, whilst Leeds will be left to concentrate on their Championship campaign.
