Manchester City are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after their 5-0 thrashing of West Ham United on Friday evening.
Goals from Yaya Toure, a Havard Nordtveit own goal, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and John Stones means that they will face an away trip to either Bolton Wanderers or Crystal Palace at the next stage of the competition.
Pep Guardiola’s side’s next match in the Premier League is away to Everton. City are currently fourth in the league table and a win at Goodison Park could see them move up to second – dependant on other results.
The Sky Blues’ defensive record has been quite poor in the league this season. They have on average conceded over a goal a game in their Premier League campaign. Club captain Vincent Kompany has been again struggling with injury this season and Guardiola is still trying to work out what his best defensive combination is.
With their current issues, Guardiola may look to bolster his defence in this window.
