    Time:90'
    • Manchester City
    • Barnsley
    • 90+1 There's the whistle, City through after a thumping win, Tevez with a hat-trick. Barnsley's dream run comes to a halt.
    • 90' One extra minute, putting Barnsley out of their misery.
    • 89' Succesion of City corners as Milner's ball is blocked; short this time and Milner gets it back, crosses far post but Lescott heads wide.
    • 88' Corner to City as Steele palms it behind.
    • 86' Milner's strike was a thunderbolt, at 70mph and 30 degrees with no curl. Power hit.
    • 85' Dzeko and Razak combine, now Toure slips it wide to MILNER BUT HE HITS THE POST! Wicked effort from the right edge of the box.
    • 84' Dzeko hoofs a long shot well over the bar. He wants a goal but isn't going to get one with efforts like that.
    • 82' Harewood is offside as he puts a flying volley wide following some nice play by Barnsley.
    • 81' City trying to keep the ball for as long as humanly possible, bit of a passing drill for them.
    • 80' Milner brings the ball clear, Zabaleta on the ball. Both sides just winding down the clock now as City go back to Pantilimon.
    • 78' Looking at the replay, there was a furious exchange of words between Tevez and Mancini. Maybe the Italian asked him for a lift afterwards.
    • 77' City back to their passing groove, Barnsley chasing shadows.
    • 76' CITY SUB: Milner replaces Tevez, who seems a bit annoyed. Silly.

    • 74' Dzeko is caught offside as he chased through for a one-on-one.
    • 73' We're hearing Nasri felt a tweak in his thigh, which is why he came off; he's gone straight in for treatment.
    • 72' Both sides are going through the motions now, with City fans doing a mini-Poznan.
    • 70' Steele gets to the ball first with Tevez chasing the fourth.
    • 68' Razak's first touch is a poor shot that almost makes the throw-in. Nice build-up though.
    • 66' CITY SUB: That is Silva's last act, he is replaced by young Ivorian Abdul Razak.
    • 65' SILVA MAKES IT FIVE! He rolls it home after the initial effort is saved by Steele. He started the move with a ball out wide to Tevez, whose low cross was met by the Spaniard, who finished at the second attempt.
    • 64' The ball drops to Dzeko, but he fires a left-foot shot well wide.
    • 63' Kolarov's cross is just too high for Tevez, poor clearance Cranie but he does well to block Silva on the follow-up.
    • 61' Now Mellis has a dig from range, a first-time effort but straight at Pantilimon.
    • 60' Tunnicliffe with a fantastic run from halfway but saved by the legs of Pantilimon!
    • 59' Long pass releases Dzeko, fantastic first touch to bring it down but he underhits the lob into a grateful Steele's arms.
    • 57' Mellis with a one-two with Scotland before unleashing a fine half-volley that Pantilimon gets down to save! Great play from the ex-Chelsea midfielder.
    • 56' Ironic cheers as Mellis wins a free-kick, meaning Barnsley have some time in City's half.
    • 54' Kolarov nutmegs O'Brien before overhitting his through ball.
    • 53' CITY SUB: Sinclair comes on for Nasri. He lives!
    • 52' BARNSLEY TRIPLE SUB: Jason Scotland and Jim O'Brien come on for Dagnall and Etuhu. Cywka also makes way for Jacob "smokebomb" Mellis.
    • 50' Tevez actually scuffed the finish but they all count. May as well take him off now.
    • 49' HAT-TRICK TEVEZ! It was only a matter of time, another simple finish for him, more excellent play from Nasri down the right.
    • 48' Foul throw by City and Barnsley have it. now Tunnicliffe, on loan from Manchester United, slides in hard on Kolarov and is booked.
    • 47' Lescott gives it away and Dagnall could be in but he loses control and it's a City throw.

    • 45+2 Lovely skill by Silva to set up a cross but Steele gathers. Half-time and City lead 3-0, Tevez with a brace.
    • 45+1 Cywka with a poor effort well wide after a counter attack. Heck, at least they're trying.

    • 43' Barnsley can break as Dagnall races away but Barry tracks back to tackle before he can find Harewood.

    • 41' A rare attack for Barnsley culminates in Dagnall heading well wide. Meanwhile, the ref chats to skipper Zabaleta about Yaya Toure's continued dissent. Already booked, get him off Mancini.
    • 40' City would do well to rest the likes of Zabaleta and Yaya Toure at half-time. No need to risk anything and the likes of Sinclair, Milner and Razak could get a run-out.
    • 39' City play it around deftly as they run rings around the Tykes.
    • 38' Dzeko fires a low drive through a crowded box but Steele gathers comfortably.

    • 34' Barnsley with a brief spell of possession but it's mostly in their half until Barry intervenes.
    • 33' Harewood is caught offside as Barnsley look increasingly long. A long hour beckons.

    • 31' Tevez's 10th goal and fourth in the Cup this season came after a superb passing move. Nasri is carving Barnsley apart on the left.

    • 28' Barnsley look so far behind City here that - despite having to chase the game - they have been forced into a rearguard action.
    • 27' Kolarov's fourth goal of the season - not bad for a left-back who competes with Clichy for his place.
    • 26' GOAL CITY! Kolarov makes it 2-0 with a low drilled finish into the bottom right after Tevez picks him out from the right. Lovely low cross, also a great pass from Dzeko to send Tevez away.
    • 25' Tevez releases Nasri but his driven cross is blocked. Harewood brings it clear but Cywka fails to find Dagnall.
    • 24' Foster misses his clearance but Cranie is covering to hack it away from Nasri who was racing in. Corner. Nasri will take it SWINGING IT ON TO DZEKO'S HEAD BUT HE PUTS WIDE!
    • 23' That set piece is wasted as Howard strays offside.
    • 22' Dagnall and Perkins complete a one-two, Dagnall then fouled by Yaya Toure who is booked for kicking the ball away.
    • 21' City now have a corner on the right. Lescott and co get up but Howard clears Silva's delivery.
    • 20' Tevez again pops up on the right, finding Silva in a busy area but he flicks the ball against his own face and out. Ho ho ho.
    • 19' Dagnall's ball is headed poorly by Kolo Toure but Barry is on hand to sweep up. City break now as Silva finds Tevez wide right but his cross is cleared.
    • 18' Kolarov with a fantastic cross from the left but Tevez flying in can only head over.
    • 16' Wiseman with a solid clearance to touch after Nasri got in again.
    • 15' Tunniclliffe misses his bicycle kick on that corner, ambitious at best. Barnsley still have it as Harewood holds it up wide left but City bring it away through Nasri.
    • 14' City are now running rings around Barnsley with short passing and crisp movement. However, the visitors have a corner as Cywka gets in down the left, Kennedy sending him away.
    • 13' Noticed some rotten driving-related puns doing the rounds on Twitter after that Tevez strike. More Tim Vine than Tom Stoppard.
    • 12' Tevez is taken down by Foster, who escapes a booking after a late slide.
    • 11' Tevez has had a bad week, but that is his 9th goal of the season. Dzeko set the ball rolling by picking out Toure from the left.
    • 10' GOAL MANCHESTER CITY! Tevez with a tap-in after Silva's finish came off the post. Yaya Toure's lovely flicked pass sent Silva in.
    • 8' Dzeko heads just over after a superb cross by Nasri, who was released by an equally fine pass by Silva. Just a touch too high for the leaping Dzeko.
    • 7' Nasri picks out Yaya Toure but his shot is blocked and Barnsley bring it clear.
    • 6' Cywka with a lovely piece of skill on the left, leaving Zabaleta for dead. Now Tunnicliffe on it and he wins a throw for Barnsley on their right.
    • 5' Lovely footwork from Tevez to poke it wide to Kolarov but his low cross is blocked and cleared by Wiseman. Now Nasri pops it into the box but it's scrambled behind for a corner.
    • 4' Good ball in from Kolarov but Steele punches clear double-fisted.
    • 3' Cranie fouls Dzeko on the City right and the hosts have a free-kick which Kolarov will take.
    • 2' City half clear the corner, with the loose ball dropping to Tunnicliffe but he hits it well off target,
    • 1' Early corner for Barnsley as Kolo Toure whacks it behind.
    • 1' The first half is underway!
    • 17:25 Speaking of predictions, William Hill's current odds are 1/7 on for a City win, with poor Barnsley at 22/1. Draw is long at 6/1. City's second-string would still finish second in the Prem.
    • 17:20 If you have any predictions for this match feel free to Tweet me @Reda_Eurosport. My money's on a 3-1 win to this under-strength City side. FOLLOW ON TWITTER!
    • 17:15 And another Opta stat: The Citizens have lost four of their last five FA Cup quarter-finals, though they did win their last one in 2011 (1-0 v Reading).
    • 17:10 Stat from Opta: Barnsley have only won two of their last 11 FA Cup games against Premier League sides, though those victories did come in successive games v Liverpool and Chelsea in 2007/08.
    • 17:05 Roberto Mancini: "These games are difficult because they don't have anything to lose and everyone can think it will be easy. I have watched Barnsley and it is clear they are not Real Madrid, but these games are strange. I don't think many people thought Arsenal could go out in a game against Bradford."
    • 17:00 As for Barnsley, Stephen Dawson has sadly failed in his bid to be fit. No place in the starting XI for Rory Delap.
    • 16:55 An interesting team selection from Roberto Mancini, choosing to rest several first-team regulars including Joe Hart. So Costel Pantilimon gets a start, as does Samir Nasri.
    • 16:50 MAN CITY: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kolo Toure, Lescott, Kolarov, Yaya Toure, Barry, Silva, Tevez, Nasri, Dzeko... Subs: Hart, Clichy, Nastasic, Razak, Garcia, Milner, Sinclair. // BARNSLEY: Steele, Wiseman, Cranie, Kennedy, Foster, Etuhu, Tunniciliffe, Perkins, Cywka, Dagnall, Harewood... Subs: Lidakevicius, Scotland, Mellis, Hassell, O'Brien, Delap, Rose.
