Sergio Agüero rides to Manchester
Manchester City had to fight throughout Authentic Myles White Jersey this semi-final first leg as they will surely have to do in the return game. That is in a fortnight and for Bristol City still to have a chance of reaching Wembley shows how fine a display this was.
