Even after they went 2-1 down, Che Adams saw a glorious chance saved by Zack Steffen. Unfortunately the best teams only give you so many lives. However, Kevin De Bruyne (above) restored Manchester City's lead from the penalty spot after the half-time break England international Phil Foden (right) extended Manchester City's lead in the 75th minute - taking the scoreline to 3-1 ‘We can be proud today for what we’ve done, ’ said the Saints boss.
That’s the reason we lost. ’ The die was cast early on. Twice in the space of two minutes the arc of this game bent City’s way courtesy of scuffs off Southampton boots. A third miscue — by Laporte — ensured a frantic first-half ended level.

VPN guideIf you’re out of the country for a round of Carabao Cup action, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo! ).

But assistance is on hand.

City will have to make do without Ruben Dias, who is still nursing a hamstring injury. Guardiola has no other injury concerns, but he will no doubt take this weekend's Manchester derby into account before making his team selection. Southampton will be unable to call upon the services of Tino Livramento, Theo Walcott, Juan Larios, Armel Bella-Kotchap and Alex McCarthy for the visit of the Premier League champions.
To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

It was a rousing watch. And then, with the game perfectly poised at 1-1, City snatched it away. Three goals in 16 minutes sucked the life from St Mary’s. Manchester City cruised to victory against Southampton in their FA Cup quarter-final clash on Sunday afternoon Raheem Sterling (above) opened the scoring in the early stages of the game to give Manchester City the crucial lead It was brutality laced with brilliance. There was a Kevin De Bruyne penalty, Phil Foden unleashed a sublime strike to make it 3-1. The fourth, three minutes later from fellow substitute Riyad Mahrez, wasn’t bad either. And yet, this will sting for Southampton. Yes, City’s class and depth told. But this game turned on individual errors.

That was probably about right. By then, Southampton had earned a bit of good fortune. Luck had deserted them earlier. First when Adam Armstrong was put through. His shot was badly struck and many behind the goal groaned before the ball reached the six-yard box. But they didn’t know that the striker had hit it so poorly that the ball somehow veered back towards goal and on to the post. Moments later, it was Stephens’ turn. The problem? His miskick came in a more perilous position.
Southampton 1-4 Man City: Pep Guardiola's men ease into semi-finalFor around an hour, this was a barmy, breathless Cup tie involving two teams and their mutual disdain for taking a backwards step. Twice already this season Southampton had left Manchester City wiping blood from their nose. Twice they had battled to parity. Here again, Saints marched on to the front foot and swung from the hip.
Saints got away with one from Jack Stephens in the first half because Aymeric Laporte decided to return the favour. City weren’t so charitable after the break. Instead, after Mohammed Salisu needlessly fouled Gabriel Jesus inside the area, and De Bruyne scored from the spot, Pep Guardiola’s side moved through the gears. Sterling's (right) goal in the 12th minute of the game came after he was teed up by his team-mate Gabriel Jesus The Saints managed to get themselves back into the game just before half-time when Aymeric Laporte scored an own goalAnother Salisu mistake allowed Foden to shoot.
