Manchester City have qualified for the fourth round of the Carabao Cup (English League Cup) following a 2 - 1 win over Tony Pulis' West Brom on Wednesday night.

Leroy Sane gave Pep Guardiola's side the lead with a simple tap in after just three minute. Sergio Aguero's initial volley was punched to the path of the German who had the simple option of tapping into an empty net.

City had multiple chances to equalize; Sergio Aguero missing two gilt edged chances while Ben Foster made a smart save to deny a Raheem Sterling curler.

Those misses almost cost the Citizens the game as the Baggies equalized in the second half after 71 minutes through Claudio Yacob who tapped in after a corner was not dealt with.

Sane, however, scored the winner five minutes later when he was on the end of a long cross following a quick counter attack.
