Manchester City beat Everton 2-0 to reach the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday as Southampton also booked their place in the last four.
Man City were far from their flowing best at Goodison Park after Pep Guardiola made six changes from the side that cruised into the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek with a routine 2-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach in Budapest.
But goals in the final six minutes from Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne booked City’s place in the semi-finals for the fourth time in five seasons under Guardiola.
City won the domestic treble of Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup for the first time in English football history two seasons ago and are firm favourites to repeat that feat.
Guardiola’s men are 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League and face struggling Tottenham in the League Cup final next month.
