Man City and Leicester reach FA Cup quarter-finals

Sergio Aguero's second-half goal proved enough for holders Manchester City to beat second-tier Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 and reach the FA Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday, but Pep Guardiola's side made hard work of it. It looked like a practice game at times for City, who won the League Cup last weekend, but they failed to convert their overwhelming superiority into goals. Nicolas Otamendi headed on to the crossbar and Benjamin Mendy thumped a shot against the woodwork, before Aguero made the breakthrough in the 53rd minute courtesy of an unfortunate error by keeper Joe Wildsmith. City's reward was a trip to Newcastle United in the last eight. Leicester City beat Birmingham City 1-0 to book their place in the last eight – Ricardo Pereira's late header sealing a tight Midlands derby.
