City manager Pep Guardiolas decision to play a virtually full-strength team paid off, with his side outclassing their opponents, who made nine changes to their first team, obviously with Saturdays crucial league fixture at home to Newcastle United in mind.
Bravo has been turned to for FA Cup action and he was sarcastically cheered by his own fans when pulling off a save late in the first half of the fifth-round replay against Huddersfield on Wednesday evening, shortly after letting Harry Bunn's attempt sneak under his body.
Other City scorers on the night include Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero (two goals), and Pablo Zabaleta.
Manager Pep Guardiola was keen to avoid an embarrassing upset, sending out a strong starting XI which had young Aleix Garcia as the only unfamiliar player in the line up.
Substitute striker Kelechi Iheanacho then added gloss to the scoreline in the 91st minute, his deft touch on a Jesus Navas cross deceiving Coleman. I have three months left to give my best.

In a post on Twitter , the music streaming service wrote the following: "Thank you to our 50 million subscribers #Spotify50". While users have been excited by the new offering, it doesn't appear to be functional yet.
Then, following Gabriel Jesus' arrival in January, Aguero was made the back-up to the Brazilian for four straight games, only for Gabriel Jesus to break a bone in his foot during a Premier League match against Bournemouth on February 13.
Guardiola, who is "so happy" with keepers Willy Caballero and Claudio Bravo, said of Hart: "We will talk about it at the end of the season".
The City striker now has 158 goals in 238 games, notes Henry Winter of The Times, and what's more "the 28-year-old is undeniably developing into an even greater, all-round threat under Guardiola". "It's one thing for the club to officially say it [that they want me to stay] and another thing to tell me".
But the morning after the night before it emerged that Aguero was still waiting to be personally informed that he remains part of Guardiola's plans. "There's a lot of games coming in the next few weeks and I think there's going to be a lot of rotation in the squad".
He said: "My intention is to stay, but it is a long way away".
