Booking – Man City

It’s manager Pep Guardiola in the book after his protests are deemed to have stepped over the line.

The Spanish boss wasn’t happy and thought Bruno Guimaraes should have been penalised for catching Sergio Gomez.

Too easy

Jack Grealish has a chance for City but his shot is down the throat of Nick Pope who easily saves.

Diogo Jota books Liverpool’s place into round four.

Different Newcastle

A much more up-tempo and aggressive Newcastle have turned up for the second half.

They’ve looked more dangerous in the open minutes of the second half than at any point in the whole of the first period.

Half time thoughts

Manchester City had been totally dominant for all but five minutes of that first half, but couldn’t find a finishing touch to their utter domination of possession.

Julian Alvarez had a couple of sniffs at goal, but it was Newcastle who spurned the best chance of the game – and their only shot on goal – as Jacob Murphy failed to convert when faced one-on-one with Ortega.

HALF TIME – Newcastle 0-0 Man City

Added time

They’ll be 1 minute of added time at St James’ Park.

Some life from Newcastle

Finally something for Newcastle fans to shout about.

The Magpies manage to turn City and Jacob Murphy finds himself one-on-one with Ortega, but he can’t find a finish and his shot his saved by the keeper.

Nothing in anger

Newcastle have yet to register a shot on or off target on the Man City goal.

HALF TIME – Aston Villa 0-1 Everton

Alvarez close again

It’s another gorgeous passing move from City, which eventually sees Alvarez in space on the left side of the box. The angle is far too tight though and his shot flashes across the face of goal.

Keep ball

It’s all Manchester City at the moment as they just pass the ball around Newcastle.

The Magpies can’t continue this way for the whole match.

GOAL – Blackburn 2-1 Cardiff

All the goals coming at Ewood Park as Arnor Sigurdsson puts Rovers back in front.

Disallowed goal

Lincoln have the ball in the net through Alex Mitchell, but the goal is chalked off for offside.

First sight of goal

First chance of the game falls to Manchester City, cutting open Newcastle to find Julian Alvarez in the box but his shot across goal is saved by the feet of Nick Pope.

Haaland's watching

15 minutes in and the cameras are already looking at Erling Haaland on the City bench.

Not a bad insurance policy to have in reserve.

Isak v Gvardiol

This one could be a battle to watch. Isak is slipped in by Lewis Hall and the Swede’s tricky hips look to try and fool the Croatian defender but he’s more than up the challenge and wins the ball back for City.

GOAL – Aston Villa 0-1 Everton

James Garner putting Sean Dyche’s side ahead after only 15 minutes, pouncing on the ball after a poor clearance from Robin Olsen.
