Kevin de Bruyne’s first half penalty kick and a superb strike by Raheem Sterling after the break earned holders Manchester City a comfortable 2-0 win away at Newcastle United on Sunday. The win, in the weekend’s last FA Cup quarter-final, was the result of Manchester City’s domination. The domination in the first half was absolute and the only surprise was it took a penalty kick for them to lead at halftime, with De Bruyne slotting home in the 37th minute.
It was incredible that all four of this year’s Cup quarter-finals, all played behind closed doors, were won by the away team, the first time that has happened since 1987.
Manchester United will face Chelsea in the other semi-final.
