Manchester City remained on course to win a third successive League Cup title after cruising past Southampton 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

Sergio Aguero then scored either side of half-time to secure City’s place in the quarter-finals, but they weren’t entirely free from nerves as Jack Stephens pulled one back with 15 minutes remaining.
