That's all for tonight!

Well, a successful night in the FA Cup and we're in the quarter-finals for the fifth consecutive season.

More reaction from Pep Guardiola and Phil Foden will follow live on the website and official app shortly with highlights and a full-match replay available at midday tomorrow.

We're back in action on Saturday when Newcastle United come to the Etihad! Until then...


Bristol City boss Nigel Pearson 🗣

"It was as we thought. There'd be opportunities but we didn't quite take them and things didn't quite work out as we'd have liked when we got them and with decisions.

"I'm pleased the players stretched themselves and went toe-to-toe with the best team in country. Disappointed that it didn't end tighter but congratulations to them. We need to use the result and performance as a catalyst to go on."


Completing the lot with a back to front strike!


And another great move before Foden made it two 👊


What a move for our first tonight!

All the passes that led to Foden's seventh minute strike.


Tonight's Man of the Match!


A solid night's work for our No.4!


Thanks to all the fans who travelled down to Bristol!


Pep Guardiola's reaction 🗣


In previous games we had more chances and didn’t score. Especially in front of these fans. A good result. We behaved like we are.


He scored one last game, now two, his dynamic and rhythm and work ethic, footballers have ups and downs. Phil’s has been up and up and up, but with the World Cup and his ankle, he has had a bit of a down. Phil has always had a high level. His impact since he arrived with us has been amazing. When you work like he works, football always pays off for you.


When you don’t play regularly its not easy. He made a good 90 minutes and good actions. It’s important for us that he’s back.


Of course we are still alive in 3 competitions. We will see what happens. We finished 5 away games with 3 days recovery in between. But the guys respond as they are.


Phil Foden's reaction 🗣


I don’t think it was a 3-0 game to be honest really. It was quite tight at time. They gave us a big challenge, they went man for man at times and we struggled to win our individual duels. In the end our quality showed through. I’m delighted with the result.


I’m not sure, I’ve not seen it back. It’ll be nice if you give it to me!


I feel much better in my feet, it’s not easy sometimes playing with discomfort in your feet. I’m feeling 100% fit and comfortable. Hopefully I can come into the team and help them as much as possible. It’s been one of the lowest parts of my career. Everyone goes through them, but it’s how you react. Just discomfort in my feet and not playing as much, I love playing football and when I don’t I’m a bit frustrated, that’s how it is.
