Manchester City v Fulham: FA Cup fourth round – live! – The Guardian, Theguardian.com

And that’s all from me. It was over before it began, really – once Fulham went down to men it was a matter of how many Manchester City would score. In the end, the answer was four. Fulham did well to restrict them to that scoreline, but were also responsible for making errors that led to the goals. So Manchester City march onwards, into the fifth round, still battling for glory in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Champions League this season. Thank you for reading / emailing in, and see you next time. Bye for now.

min: This does look good Cancelo who has gone down under a stoppage-time challenge from Fulham’s Bryan. The City players immediately call for medical treatment.

min: City stream forward again. The floodgates are yawning open, and the visitors – no doubt tiring after playing the vast majority of this match with men – are starting to struggle. More than (minutes for Manchester City to extend their lead.

min: Fulham make another change – Odoi on, Reid. off.

Parker has sent his team out with a fresh determination. If they were to keep this to 2-0 or 3-0, that in itself would be a pretty remarkable effort.

min: David Wall emails: “Glad to see more of Micah Richards on pundit duty on the BBC for today’s match. He’s becoming a regular across their radio coverage in particular and I think has been one of the most enjoyable to listen to. Unlike some others he always seems able to keep his own achievements and ability in perspective, and to maintain a sense of humor about it all. ”

Silva sends in a cross.

Updated (at 9.) (am EST

Both pundits saying Ream should have trusted his goalkeeper to come and collect that ball when Jesus appeared to be in. Maybe so. It all came from a classy dummy by David Silva. That made it a difficult decision for Ream, who was perhaps a bit unsettled by that earlier error. He got the decision wrong. The recriminations, if that is the right word, will no doubt be ongoing in the changing room right now.

(min: Johansen fouls David Silva, who I can tell you (even without referencing the official stats) is the most-fouled player in this match so far. The free-kick is belted over the bar by Mahrez.

min: Fulham defend a corner well and then hack the ball upfield, into space, to nobody, just to relieve the pressure for a few precious seconds.

Bryan sends Mahrez flying.
