Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure and Nigerian attacker Kelechi both played in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday which secured passage into the semifinals of the FA Cup.

The Citizens won 2-0 at the Riverside Stadium thanks to an early strike from David Silva, while Sergio Aguero netted the second goal midway through the second half.

Toure started and played 86 minutes before he was replaced in midfield by Fernando, while Iheanacho made a brief substitute appearance in place of Aguero.

Both West African players will be keen on more action this coming midweek when City face the return leg match of their UEFA Champions League last 16 tie against Monaco.

The other FA Cup quarterfinals see Arsenal host Lincoln City later this evening, Tottenham Hotspur will tackle Milwall on Sunday and the big match sees Chelsea and Manchester United cross swords at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
