Manchester City hit with March fixture postponement following recent cup clash



| Last Updated:


Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City squad will now have to contend with a further rearranged clash this season following their victory at Luton on Tuesday evening.

An Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne-inspired performance in Bedfordshire saw the holders of the competition come out as 2-6 victory on an enthralling evening of action in City’s final contest of February.

Haaland’s five-goal haul saw him assisted on four occasions by Kevin De Bruyne, while Mateo Kovacic would finalise the scoring for a side that had previously only scored three goals from 71 shots in recent fixtures.

However, following Manchester City’s dramatic victory at Kenilworth Road this week, it has since been confirmed that their Premier League clash against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium has now been postponed.

That is due to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup taking place on the weekend of Saturday 16 March, with Manchester City confirmed to be taking on Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium, following the conclusion of the draw on Wednesday evening.

March will also see Manchester City embark on a number of mammoth clashes in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League, with contests scheduled against Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal – whom they face on the final day of the month.

City’s European outing comes against FC Copenhagen after their derby day fixture against Erik ten Hag’s men this weekend, with the reigning Champions of Europe hosting their Danish opponents with a 3-1 lead in their advantage from the last-16 first-leg.
