Manchester City écrase Luton en Coupe d’Angleterre: Haaland et De Bruyne en feu

Manchester City, the reigning champions, have qualified for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at the expense of Luton (6-2). The Premier League underdog was defeated by five goals from Erling Haaland and four assists from Kevin De Bruyne.

The Norwegian striker feasted at Kenilworth Road with a quintuple (3rd, 18th, 40th, 55th, 58th), almost a year after the one inflicted on Leipzig (7-0) in March 2023, in the Champions League round of 16.

His best partner, Kevin De Bruyne, delivered a quadruple of assists, before another one from Bernardo Silva for the Norwegian cyborg. Mateo Kovacic scored the final goal for City (72nd).

Grealish comes off injured

Trailing 3-0 just before half-time, Luton managed to come back to 3-2 through Jordan Clark: the midfielder sent a long-range missile into the top corner (45th, 3-1) and then executed a beautiful volley after a nice chest control (52nd, 3-2).

The only downside for Manchester City was Jack Grealish coming off injured in the first half, covering his face to hide his distress. The left winger, replaced by Jérémy Doku, was making his return as a starter in Pep Guardiola’s team after some physical setbacks.
