  • 91'

    FULL TIME - a walk in the park for the Premier League champions. Only the second time in 32 years they've got past the quarters would you believe but they are one of the favourites to win it now.

  • 90'

    One minute added....

  • 89'

    Poor header at the back stick from Lescott, who really should have nodded that across goal.

  • 88'

    Corner for City.

  • 86'

    Cranie nods away Milner's excellent cross.

  • 85'

    Off the post! Milner cuts in and smashes a shot against the post! Top effort.

  • 84'

    So, Manchester City and Wigan our confirmed FA Cup semi-finalists. Who will join them? Millwall or Blackburn, Manchester Utd or Chelsea?

  • 83'

    It ends with a chance for Harewood but his finish is, well, very Harewood.

  • 82'

    The away fans breaking the "ole's" as their team knock the ball about.

  • 81'

    Silva rolls home the fifth

  • 79'

    A few angry words between Mancini and Tevez as the striker came off judging by that replay.

  • 78'

    Dzeko offside this time. Oh Dzeko.

  • 77'

    Dzeko is desperate to get on the scoresheet but his finishing has been very poor today.

  • 76'

    Hat-trick hero Tevez departs, James Milner enters the fray.

  • 75'

    Manchester City to win, with bet365  
    Barnsley to win, with bet365  

  • 75'

    Wiseman wins a corner.

  • 74'

    Nice from Barry, a good tackle then a neat flick. Barnsley's fans doing the Poznan.

  • 72'

    Marlon Harewood fires wide from the edge of the area.

  • 71'

    Sinclair tries to round Cranie and get in on goal but Steele is out.

  • 70'

    City looking very good in possession.

  • 68'

    I hope for Barnsley this doesn't get ugly. Even more ugly.

  • 66'

    That's Silva's final act - he's replaced by Adbul Razak.

  • 66'

    So easy. Tevez crosses and though Silva's initial effort is well saved by Steele, the Spaniard taps home the rebound.

  • 65'

    GOAL Silva makes it five!

  • 64'

    Dzeko fires an effort wide of the target. Not quite been on his game today.

  • 63'

    Desperate defending inside the area as Silva's cross causes panic. Cranie boots clear.

  • 61'

    What a chance for Tunnicliffe! A lung bursting run through the middle but a weak enough shot at the end for Pantilimon to geta foot on it. The follow up from Mellis is saved too.

  • 60'

    Manchester City to win, with bet365  
    Barnsley to win, with bet365  

  • 60'

    Lescott penalised for a ball-wining tackle.

  • 59'

    Dzeko goes close as he breaks the offside trap - tries to lob the keeper but can't get enough height.

  • 57'

    So nearly! Mellis fires in a volley after decent work on the edge of the box and Pantilimon is forced into action with a smart save.

  • 56'

    Come on footballing gods, let's have a goal for Barnsley.

  • 55'

    That's Tevez's sixth hat-trick since he moved to England. His fifth for City.

  • 53'

    Jason Scotland replaces a distraught Dagnall while Jim O'Brien and Mellis come on for Cywka and Etuhu. Scott Sinclair on for City too, Nasri off.

  • 52'

    Nowt to look forward to for Barnsley than a fight to avoid relegation to League One. They went bottom of the Championship today too. Oh well. Chin up.

  • 50'

    Nasri gets down the left, crosses for Tevez, who forces the ball home with his left foot. Poor old Barnsley.

  • 49'

    GOAL A hat-trick for Tevez!

  • 48'

    Tunnicliffe is carded for upending Kolarov. He did get the ball first however...

  • 47'

    A foul throw! Unforgivable. Kolarov the culprit.

  • 46'

    We begin again...


    Surely it is all about limiting the score for Barnsley now. Should they open up and attack the game we could be looking at a cricket score.


    If you missed any of the earlier action then read about vital wins for Villa and QPR in our Premier League wrap and how a three-goal blast in four minutes fired Wigan into their first ever FA Cup semi final.

  • 45'

    HALF TIME - Cywka slips as he has a pop on goal that drifts wide. And that is half time, with Manchester City utterly dominant.

  • 44'

    Silva overruns the ball from Kolarov's pass.

  • 43'

    Barnsley haven't helped themselves - Perkins and Cranie try and play their way out of bother but only succeed in handing City a corner.

  • 42'

    So nearly four as Cranie gets the slimmest of touches on another Kolarov cross to prevent Silva tapping in.

  • 41'

    Tevez grabs his first

  • 40'

    A rare effort on goal as Dagnall gets a head on a right wing cross but it bounces wide.

  • 38'

    Barnsley just can't find any sort of link in the final third. Touch is letting them down.

  • 37'

    Steele forced into action s Tevez turns and shoots.

  • 36'

    Dagnall is late on Kolarov. Bit of frustration boiling over.

  • 34'

    Well, what is one up from insurmountable.

  • 32'

    Another silky goal, Kolarov into the area, Silva with a flick to Tevez, he turns and fires home from inside the six-yard box.

  • 31'

    GOAL Another goal for Tevez!

  • 30'

    Manchester City to win, with bet365  
    Barnsley to win, with bet365  

  • 30'

    A tough task for Barnsley is now insurmountable you'd have to say.

  • 28'

    Super goal, Dzeko into Tevez down the right channel and his low cross to the back post is drilled into the bottom corner by Kolarov. Superb.

  • 27'

    GOAL Kolarov with a fine finish!

  • 26'

    Marlon Harewood does well to win possession but then Tunnicliffe wastes it with a hopeful ball out to the right.

  • 25'

    Nasri has been City's chief threat in this first half so far. Again he is denied entering the box.

  • 24'

    Dzeko wins the header from the corner, actually, it hit his back, but the ball dribbles wide.

  • 23'

    Excellent covering from Cranie as he tracks a Nasri run and slides in to concede a corner.

  • 22'

    Yaya gets a yellow.

  • 20'

    Poor corner from Silva, cleared at the near post.

  • 19'

    That's a bit too over complicated from Tevez, trying a flick in for Silva, who then boots the ball into his own face. Mirth all around.

  • 18'

    Strong from Barry as he barges Dagnall off the ball.

  • 17'

    Decent cross from Kolarov and Tevez wins a header at the back post but can't keep it down.

  • 17'

    Decent cross from Kolarov and Tevez wins a header at the back post but can't keep it down.

  • 16'

    Barnsley look relatively neat and tidy in possession.

  • 15'

    Manchester City to win, with bet365  
    Barnsley to win, with bet365  

  • 15'

    That is very lazy from Kolarov, he lets the ball run out of play before crossing into the box.

  • 14'

    Corner kick for Barnsley as Dagnall battles with Kolo Toure.

  • 13'

    City in the driving seat now.

  • 12'

    A lovely move as Yaya flicks in for Silva whose volley comes back off the post and Tevez is first to react from four yards out.

  • 11'

    Manchester City to win, with bet365  
    Barnsley to win, with bet365  

  • 11'

    GOAL Goal for Tevez!

  • 9'

    Great chance for Dzeko from a fabulous Nasri cross. It was a touch too high for the striker who nods over from five yards.

  • 8'

    City yet to hit their stride.

  • 7'

    Poor pass from Yaya as Nasri made a dart into the box.

  • 6'

    Decent start from the Championship side here.

  • 5'

    Two excellent lunging blocks from Barnsley as Nasri tries to cross low. Corner.

  • 4'

    Steele punches clear from the free kick, whipped in by Silva.

  • 3'

    Cranie fouls Dzeko and City have a free kick wide right.

  • 2'

    Early ball into the box from Etuhu sees Kolo Toure shank it behind for a corner.

  • 1'



    Plenty of focus on Tevez given his arrest this week. I'll bet now he scores.


    The teams are in the tunnel - can Barnsley pull of the FA Cup shock of the season?


    Manchester City: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kolo Toure, Lescott, Kolarov, Yaya Toure, Barry, Silva, Tevez, Nasri, Dzeko.


    Barnsley: Steele, Wiseman, Cranie, Kennedy, Foster, Etuhu, Tunnicliffe, Perkins, Cywka, Dagnall, Harewood.


    The main team news is that Carlos Tevez starts for City despite his arrest for allegedly driving while disqualified.


    Welcome to ESPN FC's live minute-by-minute commentary of Manchester City's FA Cup quarter-final against Barnsley.
