Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne says his side should have scored more goals against Newcastle in the FA Cup.

The Citizens secured a semi-final spot in football's oldest competition after De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling hit the target to hand the awayside a 2-0 win over Steve Bruce's Magpies on Sunday evening.

However, City birthday boy De Bruyne told BBC MOTD after the win at St James' Park: "We started really well, were sharp and put them under pressure.

"We should have scored more. We had a few problems with penalties this year. The gaffer asked me to step up and I have scored a couple now.

"In my career, I have played lots of positions and the gaffer asked me to try something new because Newcastle play with a back five. I just work for the team.

On playing behind closed doors: "We know it is really weird and it is not something I enjoy, but we are professionals and we need to keep going."
