Man City beat Fulham to reach quarter-finals

Brahim Diaz scored twice for Manchester City

Spanish teenager Brahim Diaz scored his first senior goals for Manchester City as the holders eased past Fulham to reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.

Diaz, 19, put a much-changed City side ahead when his shot deflected in off Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Spain Under-21 international added the second after half-time, guiding in after Gabriel Jesus hit the post.

Pep Guardiola's side will play at either Leicester City or Southampton in the last eight in December.

The fourth-round tie at King Power Stadium has been rearranged for Tuesday, 27 November after it was postponed following Saturday's helicopter crash which killed Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others.
