West Brom 1-2 Man City: Leroy Sané scored twice to book a last-16 tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers and extend Manchester City’s winning run to five matches, but a robust encounter at the Hawthorns also brought a reminder that Pep Guardiola’s men are fallible.
After threatening another goal avalanche in the first half, City wound up relieved to win, grateful in particular to two misses by Hal Robson-Kanu. Claudio Yacob, meanwhile, proved a painful irritant to the visitors in more ways than one, scoring a second-half equaliser mere minutes after perpetrating the tackle that led to Ilkay Gündogan hobbling off injured. The German had been excellent on his first start after an absence of nearly 10 months because of torn knee ligaments. “Fortunately it’s not serious,” Guardiola said.
