Sven’s Eastlands return a losing one

SVEN-GORAN ERIKSSON’S return to Eastlands ended in defeat as Manchester City booked their place in the FA Cup fourth round with a 4-2 win over Leicester.

Carlos Tevez put City ahead before Paul Gallagher’s immediate response from the penalty spot. Two goals in 90 seconds before half-time, from Patrick Vieira and Adam Johnson, put the favourites in command.

Lloyd Dyer gave Leicester late hope but Aleksandar Kolarov sealed the win with his first goal for the club.
