Manchester City 4 Leeds United 0: match report
Sergio Aguero gave a superb performance here, scoring twice, and creating another as Manchester City utterly dominated a disappointing Leeds United to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. It was particularly poignant for Aguero, whose young son Benjamin had travelled over from Argentina and was looking on, proudly wearing a “Kun Aguero” top. Aguero took his goals – the first a penalty – with typical precision. Yaya Toure and Carlos Tévez also scored and there could have been more. Both Yaya Toure and Tévez were excellent while James Milner was tireless against his old team. Some of David Silva’s passing was breathtaking. Leeds’ players were as anaemic as their fans were defiant. Probably the time Leeds kept the ball best was when their fans refused to return the ball for a while. Such was the lack of ambition from Leeds that their supporters turned on their manager. “Warnock, Warnock, time to go,’’ came the chant on two occasions in the second half. Leeds fans were at their ironic best, telling their City counterparts that: “You’re nothing special, we lose every week”. If Warnock’s future has been made more tense by this surrender, then City fans’ support for their own manager appears as strong as ever.
