Man City into the fifth round with comfortable Cardiff win

Media playback is not supported on this device

Manchester City kept hope of an unprecedented quadruple alive with an FA Cup fourth-round win at Cardiff.

The Premier League leaders were ahead early on when Kevin De Bruyne expertly struck a free-kick under the jump of Cardiff's wall and into the net.

Bernardo Silva controversially saw a goal ruled our shortly after, before Raheem Sterling headed in a second.

Cardiff offered little after the break and were reduced to 10 men when Joe Bennett was sent off late on.

More to follow.
