Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne have obliterated Luton in the FA Cup with Manchester City’s star striker scoring five in a 6-2 win and the midfield genius assisting four of them.

The holders marched into the quarterfinals with a stunning display. It was Haaland’s eighth hat-trick for City and he also became the first player to score five in a game twice for the club.

City started the rout in the fourth minute when Kevin de Bruyne, who assisted the first four goals, was allowed time and space to cut the ball back for Haaland to convert.

The pair teamed up again 15 minutes later, with Haaland running on to a through ball before powering it past Luton goalkeeper Tim Krul and it was a similar move that brought the third as he dinked the keeper.

Jordan Clark pulled two back for Luton – including a stunning opener – but City found another gear to cruise to victory.

“We made a plan and everyone stuck to it perfectly. Well played by everyone,” said Haaland.

“Kevin de Bruyne is massive. He is doing what he is best at. It’s a pleasure playing with him. We know what we both want from each other. it clicks well. He is a smart player and I like to play with him.


“My fitness? I am getting back to my best. Finally I am feeling good. It’s an amazing feeling. It’s coming, we’re coming. Exciting times ahead. We are ready to attack.”

Meanwhile Abdul Fatawu’s extra time stunner helped Championship leaders Leicester City progress past Premier League Bournemouth.

The tie finished goalless in normal time, with both sides hitting the post.

In the first period of extra time, Fatawu collected the ball on the edge of the area and curled a shot into the top right corner, via the fingertips of Cherries keeper Mark Travers.
