A dominant display from start to finish saw City cruise into the Carabao Cup quarter-final with a 3-1 win over Southampton.

Sergio Aguero hit a brace on his 350th appearance for the Club after Nicolas Otamendi had given the defending champions the lead, with Jack Stephens’ late header a mere consolation for the visitors.

Pep Guardiola handed 18-year-old Tommy Doyle his competitive debut, with the grandson of Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe one of three teenagers in the starting lineup, alongside Phil Foden and Eric Garcia.

All three gave good accounts of themselves, but it was their more experienced colleagues who put the Saints to the sword.

Otamendi climbed highest to nod home from Bernardo Silva’s centre, before Aguero converted a six-yard volley to make it 2-0 before the break.

The Argentine striker hit his second and City’s third just before the hour mark, getting the slightest of touches on Riyad Mahrez deflected cross to nutmeg Alex McCarthy.
