Match Highlights View More Below

City eased into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win over Watford.

First-half goals from Carlos Tevez and Gareth Barry put the Blues a couple of goals to the good during a one-sided first 45 and 17-year-old sub Marcos Lopes added a third in injury time to see off spirited Championship opposition.

Now the Blues will await Sunday’s fourth round draw with interest , perhaps allowing thoughts of more silverware for a team who could still yet record a first league and cup double.

A few years ago, the future of the FA Cup looked in doubt. Critics claimed the competition had lost its sparkle and the magic was gone forever.
