City went ahead through Bernardo’s emphatic eighth minute volley and the Portuguese midfielder doubled our lead seven minutes later when he tapped into an empty net to finish off a slick passing move.

Foden had already had a penalty appeal overturned by VAR when he struck, firing into the bottom corner from the edge of the area to give City a commanding half-time lead.

Guardiola took full advantage and introduced Liam Delap, Felix Nmecha and Taylor Harwood-Bellis in the second half, giving the Academy graduates valuable first team experience as City closed out the tie.
