Sheff Wed 0-1 City: Aguero helps Pep enter FA Cup last 8 with 5-game winning run

Holders Manchester City booked their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Sergio Aguero scored his 20th FA Cup goal as holders Manchester City beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Hillsborough to reach the quarter-finals.

The Argentinian's 53rd-minute strike proved the difference as Pep Guardiola's side made it five successive wins in all competitions, matching their best run of victories in 2019-20.

Defenders Nicolas Otamendi and Benjamin Mendy struck the woodwork either side of half-time before Championship side Wednesday's resistance was eventually broken.

Goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith got a hand to Aguero's strike but could not prevent the ball going over the line as City's all-time leading scorer registered his 254th goal for the club. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
