Gameday Review: Manchester City v/s Leicester City (4-2)
Man. City: Toure, Silva, Tevez, Kolarov
Leicester City: Gallagher, Dyer
The last dramatic face-off between these two teams ended with a 2-2 draw, meaning Leicester had to score at least 3 goals in this match to move on to the next round in the FA Cup. Alas, the other "City" beat them to it. Tevez, Man. City's captain, opened the score on the 15th minute with his 16th goal of the season. Four minutes later, Leicester were awarded a penalty that was brilliantly executed by Gallagher, who scored his seventh goal of the season. He was subbed off on the 31st minute due to an injury. Man. City's second and third goals came six minutes later when Vieira and Johnson scored "2 goals in 2 minutes". It was 3:1 at half-time. Then on the 59th minute, an opportunity came for Manchester City to widen the score difference even further with a penalty; after some tricky gestures made by Leicester's goalie (including what might have been a last-minute attempt to bribe the referee), Tevez's shot was saved. Luckily, City were not without their own bag o' tricks, and on the 90th minute, Kolarov scored City's fourth goal against Leicester, securing his team's spot in the fourth round of the FA Cup, where they'll face Notts County.
