Luton vs. Man City live score, result from FA Cup fifth round

Ross Barkley and Jack Grealish

 

Holders Manchester City travel to Luton Town in the fifth round of the FA Cup aiming to extend a 17-match unbeaten run across all competitions.

Pep Guardiola’s treble winners have not lost since going down to a 1-0 Premier League defeat at Aston Villa on December 6. They bounced back from that setback with a 2-1 victory at Kenilworth Road four days later to launch their current sequence.

 

Elijah Adebayo gave the Hatters the lead on the stroke of half time before goals from Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish completed City’s turnaround.

Grealish is fit again after a groin injury served as the latest interruption to a stop-start season, and the England international will be hoping to press his case ahead of Sunday’s Manchester derby against United at the Etihad Stadium.
