  • Five minutes to go until kick off, Wembley currently experiencing a bizarre pre-match trophy display involving a woman dangling from a giant balloon handing the cup over to a soldier. Not sure what that was all about but there's no time to ponder it because here come the players!
    3/2/2014 1:55:34 PM
  • Sergio Aguero starts for Manchester City, is that a risk from Manuel Pellegrini? Is he fully fit? Well we'll soon see but if he plays at anything like his best then Sunderland could be in trouble.
    3/2/2014 1:57:03 PM
  • It's national anthem time...
    3/2/2014 1:57:36 PM

  • The trophy arrives in unorthodox style 


    3/2/2014 1:59:10 PM
  • Manchester City 0 Sunderland 0: We're off!
    3/2/2014 2:01:54 PM
  • Manchester City 0 Sunderland 0: Unsurprisingly the early pressure is coming from Man City, Kolarov is getting forward regularly on the left hand side.

  • Yaya Toure celebrates his goal 


    3/2/2014 3:42:31 PM
  • Manchester City 2 Sunderland 1: Five minutes left and it's looking like things are heading City's way. Negredo prepares to come on.
    3/2/2014 3:45:39 PM

  • Nasri celebrates his goal 


    3/2/2014 3:46:49 PM
  • Manchester City 2 Sunderland 1: Oh dear Steven Fletcher, that was terrible, he's free at the back post but tries to play it onto his favoured right foot but it just bobbles out.
    3/2/2014 3:48:36 PM
  • GOAL! Manchester City 3 Sunderland 1 - Jesus Navas
    Game over, City counter attack and have a 5 on 2. Toure slips the ball to Navas on the right and he sidefoots it home to seal the game.
    3/2/2014 3:48:55 PM
  • FULL TIME
    Manchester City 3 Sunderland 1 - Sunderland fought bravely but in the end the class of Man City shone through. An absorbing game. 
    3/2/2014 3:54:17 PM

    3/2/2014 3:54:32 PM


  • 3/2/2014 3:57:05 PM
  • GOAL! Aston Villa 1 Norwich 1 - Christian Benteke
    Well that's some finish! Benteke receives a ball around chest height in the middle of the area but with his back to goal he has it all to do. It doesn't bother the Belgian though because he simply acrobatically hooks it behind himself into the back of the net. Villa back in the game.
    3/2/2014 4:55:30 PM
  • GOAL! Aston Villa 2 Norwich 1 - Christian Benteke
    He's done it again! Benteke muscles forward to meet the ball at a corner and heads it powerfully into the net to give Villa the lead. What a turnaround.
    3/2/2014 4:58:11 PM
  • GOAL! Swansea 1 Crystal Palace 0 - Jonathan De Guzman
    Jonathan De Guzman only needs two touches to score, taking the ball away from the closing Palace defenders with his first and then putting away a 14-yard finish with his second.
    3/2/2014 5:00:17 PM
  • GOAL! Tottenham 1 Cardiff 0 - Roberto Soldado

    3/2/2014 5:02:10 PM
  • Aston Villa 2 Norwich 1: Hoolahan should have had another, but Brad Guzan makes a great stop to keep him out. This game has been lively.
    3/2/2014 5:06:54 PM
  • GOAL! Aston Villa 3 Norwich 1 - Leandro Bacuna
    What a counter attack, Agbonlahor feeds Weimann who picks out Bacuna on the right. Bacuna cuts in onto his left foot and places the ball perfectly into the far corner of the net. Villa are cruising now.
    3/2/2014 5:08:05 PM
  • GOAL! Aston Villa 4 Norwich 1 - Sebastian Bassong o.g. 
    Blimey. Villa have a fourth goal! Fabian Delph's cross from the left bundled into his own net by Bassong who was under pressure from Agbonlahor.
    3/2/2014 5:12:40 PM
