Manchester City booked their place in the Capital One Cup semi-finals after a 4-1 win against as Egypt’s played the full 90 minutes.

An early goal from Wilfried Bony put the Citizens up in the 12th minute as the Ivorian scored from a left-footed shot from the center of the box after Kevin De Bruyne’s strike hit the post.

It looked like City were planning to finish it off in the first half after Bony’s early goal but the visitors held up and grew in confidence through the rest of the 45 minutes as Akpom had a good chance to equalize for the Tigers just before half-time but Caballero was in a good position to save.

After the break, City’s manager Manuel Pellegrini introduced Nigerian teenager Kelechi Iheanacho and Raheem Sterling in place of Bony and Navas in order to kill the game, which paid off in the 80th minute as Iheanacho turned in Sterling’s cross to double the Citizens lead before De Bruyne’s quick brace – including a delightful free-kick in the 87th minute.

The Tigers scored a late consolation goal through Andrew Robertson’s left-footed shot in the 92nd minute.

City will discover their opposition in the semi-finals when the draw takes place on Wednesday after the conclusion of the Southampton vs Liverpool game as Everton and Stoke have already qualified.

It’s worth noting that Elmo’s Hull sit fourth in the Championship as they set their sights towards a return to the Premier League next season.
