The Citizens hopes of the quadruple are still alive, despite Guardiola constantly reminding his players to take one game at a time. They return to league action with a trip to Leicester City before facing Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. Everton, who crash out at the quarter-final stage of the cup, remain in pursuit of the European spots in the Premier League and they next host Crystal Palace.
After a fairly uneventful 80 minutes or so, Gundogan finally opened the scoring with a diving header after Virginia's initial smart save from Laporte.
With Everton throwing all their players forward in search of an equaliser, De Bruyne then doubled the visitors' lead to confirm City's FA Cup semi-final place for the third consecutive season. Down the other end, Richarlison went the closest for the hosts but couldn't beat Steffen, which is why City run out 2-0 winners at Goodison Park.
