Manchester City reach the fourth round of the FA Cup with a thumping 4-0 victory over Chelsea at Etihad Stadium.
The visiting players warmed up in No. 9 shirts in tribute to the late, great Gianluca Vialli ahead of kick off but could not muster a performance to match the gesture.
Pep Guardiola’s home team dominated from the off and deservedly took the lead on 23 minutes when Mahrez curled home a majestic 25-yard free kick.
Julian Alvarez then made it two from the penalty spot on the half hour mark after VAR had intervened to alert the referee to a handball by Kai Havertz.
Chelsea’s shoulders clearly slumped after that and City all-but wrapped up victory eight minutes later when Phil Foden finished off a lovely, well-worked move.
Graham Potter brought on new signing David Datro Fofana for his debut at the break
and tinkered with his system but it did little to change the flow of the game as the hosts continued to dictate the tempo despite easing back into ‘game-management’ mode.
The Citizens then put the icing on the cake five minutes from time when Mahrez netted his second goal of the game from the spot to set up a fourth round tie at home to Oxford or Arsenal.
Next up, City visit Southampton in the EFL Cup on Wednesday before taking on neighbours
Man United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday. Chelsea have a trip to Fulham in the league on Thursday
