A decent evening for the blues. Two goals from Brahim Diaz send City through and Raheem Sterling agrees a new contract. Tie Diaz down and that'd be a perfect hat trick!

Stick around for our match recap and social media reaction.

Good night

FULL TIME: A routine win for the blues, who go on to face either Leicester or Southampton in the quarter final.

Final score: City 2.0 Fulham

SUBSTITUTION: No hat-trick as Diaz is replaced by Riyad Mahrez. 2-0

City closing in on a place in the quarter final thanks to a Brahim Diaz double. Hat-trick anyone?

GOAL: It's Diaz again with his second of the night. Gabriel Jesus' shot rebounds off the post and the Spaniards hammers home. 2-0

Kick-off: Back under way at the Etihad. The blues lead 1-0 thanks to Brahim Diaz's goal. Will it be enough to put City into the quarter final?

Half-time: Blues deservedly in front but only lead by the one goal. 1-0

GOAl: Brahim Diaz makes it 1-0 with a deflected effort.

Chance. The Stockport Iniesta islooking to add another goal, stinging the palms of the keeper from the corner of the area. 0-0

KICK-OFF: We’re under way at The Etihad Stadium. Come on you blues!!!

If you didn't already know, the winners of tonight’s tie will travel to Leicester or Southampton for a place in the semi-final. That tie was postponed due to the tragedy that unfolded on Saturday evening.

Our thoughts and respects go out to Leicester City and the families and friends of all those affected by the terrible events of Saturday evening.

Team News:

City make ten changes to the team that beat Spurs on Monday night, with Kevin de Bruyne making only his second start of the season.

City: Muric, Zinchenko, Stones, Kompany, Danilo, Delph, de Bruyne, Diaz, Foden, Sane, Jesus

Fulham: Rico, Sessegnon, Ream, Odoi, Fosu-Mensah, Seri, Anguissa, Cairney, Schurrle, Vietto, Mitrovic

A strong line up from the blues this evening

Welcome to our live blog as City take on Fulham for a place in the quarter final of the League Cup. Feels wrong doing this on a Thursday, almost like I'm an Arsenal fan in Europe...
