Man City boss Guardiola frustrated with no-show fans

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has questioned why more fans did not turn up for his side's 4-0 win over Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round.

The attendance of 39,223 at Etihad Stadium was the third highest in the round, behind West Ham and Newcastle.

"Today was not full - I don't know why," the City manager said.

He added he hoped there would be "more people" and "more support" at Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Manchester United.

"It is a chance to come back to Wembley for three years in a row," said the Spaniard, whose side have won the Carabao Cup for the past two seasons and lead United 3-1 after the first leg.

"Hopefully our fans can come, more people than today.

"Hopefully they can support us more and make an intelligent game to reach the final."
