Gallery: Mahrez magic in the FA Cup!

Second-half goals from Riyad Mahrez and Jack Grealish propelled City into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at the expense of Peterborough United.

The hosts remained resolute and rigid throughout the entire first half, but the pressure eventually paid off for Pep Guardiola's side, with the lively Mahrez cutting inside on his left foot and curling into the far corner on the hour mark.

The strike was the Algerian's 19th goal of the campaign and he almost got another shortly after, but his shot sailed just over the crossbar.

Seven minutes after the opener, Grealish doubled City's lead, controlling Phil Foden's accurate pass sublimely, before coolly finding the net.

The Englishman also nearly got a brace, but his shot was expertly tipped over by the sprawling Benda.
