    • Leeds United
    • FT City have a corner to finish the game but they won't even bother with that. There is the full-time whistle – easy stuff for City who have moved into the quarter-finals without breaking too much sweat.
    • 90+1 We will have two extra minutes.
    • 90' Maicon's ball is just a little behind Silva as another Manchester City chance goes by.
    • 89' Zabaleta nearly finishes off another lovely move but puts his effort just wide of the target.
    • 88' City happy to just stroke the ball around in these final moments.
    • 87' A lot of those fans are streaming for the exits now though – this one was over a long time ago.
    • 86' Crowd of 46, 848 here today - that's a sell-out.
    • 85' Dzeko with a decent effort after running to just outside the box – he fires a powerful low drive towards goal and Ashdown has to get down and push it away for a corner.
    • 83' Young Benjamin might be a player himself some day. Sergio is his dad, Diego Maradona is his granddad and Lionel Messi is his godfather.
    • 81' Aguero given a rest – he is replaced by Dzeko. Aguero's young son Benjamin amongst those watching today.
    • 80' Rodwell goes in very aggressively on Michael Tongue – seemed a little unnecessary. Won the ball but got a big chunk of man too.
    • 79' Silva the latest player to fire a shot – it flashes just wide of the target though.
    • 78' Toure with another powerful run – he plays Maicon free down the right but his cross is blocked.
    • 77' Leeds bring on Michael Tongue for Rudy Austin - their final change.
    • 75' Leeds shout for a penalty as White's cross hits Nastasic – but it hits his chest. They have a corner though.
    • 74' GOAL FOR CITY!!! Aguero has his second and City's fourth. Lovely ball over the top from Silva. Aguero lets the ball bounce, shapes his body, and side-foots in off the post for another nice goal.
    • 73' Diouf takes a dive in the penalty area after very, very minimal contact from Kolarov – no penalty.
    • 72' Lovely cross from Aidy White from the right – Varney should do better with his header but it loops harmlessly over.
    • 71' Man City fans singing Roberto Mancini's name – seems like he still has their support.
    • 70' More good play from City but Maicon's stood up cross is just about gathered by Ashdown.
    • 69' Aguero tries a turn and shot but can't really get any power on it after being found by Zabaleta.
    • 67' It is just going to be procession for City from here now. No sense of drama.
    • 66' SO CLOSE TO NUMBER FOUR!!! Silva waltzes into the box – he checks back to Yaya Toure who fires towards goal. Ashdown makes a great save and then Rodwell heads the rebound off the crossbar.
    • 65' Diouf gives the ball away and Aguero plays Yaya Toure free down the left – he storms to the edge of the box but Leeds then deal with his low cross into the box.
    • 64' And Maicon is on with Carlos Tevez making way.
    • 63' City have Maicon at the ready – he will be on soon.
    • 62' Aguero nearly gets in behind the Leeds defence again but Peltier does just enough to bundle him off the ball.
    • 62' Aguero nearly gets in behind the Leeds defence again but Peltier does just enough to bundle him off the ball.
    • 61' City decide to bring on Jack Rodwell for Javi Garcia.
    • 60' Chants of 'Ole' from the Leeds fans as they put a few passes together – you might as well enjoy yourself.
    • 59' City break forward again – Aguero tries to pick out Tevez with a low cross but just can't quite get it right.
    • 58' Milner tries a shot from outside the box to the right but he can only hit the side-netting.
    • 57' Austin wins the ball with a fine slide tackle in midfield but Kolarov sweeps up by nicking the ball off White.
    • 56' Austin with a shot that blazes into the Leeds section. The fans decide to have a bit of fun with it before throwing it back out on the pitch.
    • 54' Yaya Toure tries a shot from distance but it goes straight at Ashdown.
    • 53' Neil Warnock won't be happy seeing Tevez score. He still partially blames the Argentine for his Sheffield United's side's relegation from the Premier League.
    • 51' GOAL FOR CITY!!! It really is game over now….Aguero the creator – he cuts in from the left and plays a one-two with Silva. His next touch tightens the angle but he digs it across with a sort of half-cross, half-shot and Tevez is on hand to bundle it in.
    • 50' We are back underway – Byram will continue with a handful of toilet paper in his mouth.
    • 49' We are back underway – Byram will continue with a handful of toilet paper in his mouth.
    • 47' Leeds making changes at half-time –Steve Morison on for Ross McCormanck and David Norris on for Michael Brown.
    • 46' And we are back underway...
    • 46' Leeds making changes at half-time –Steve Morison on for Ross McCormanck and David Norris on for Michael Brown.
    • HT And there is the half-time whistle – City in complete control and hard to see anything other than a home win.
    • 45+2 Important block from Warnock to put a cross out for a corner – terrible dallying on the ball got Leeds into trouble.
    • 45+1 Three extra minutes.
    • 45' McCormack manages to get a shot on target and Pantilimon punches it away – probably Leeds' best attempt and that is not saying much.
    • 44' Leeds now have a free-kick just outside the D – a little to the left. Can they steal a goal just before the break.
    • 43' This half is petering out without much drama – neither side looking a threat at the moment.
    • 41' Leeds fans have remained in good voice despite their team offering very little on the pitch.
    • 40' City have have won six of their last nine in all competitions but are without a win in three (D2 L1)
    • 38' Diouf has a free kick deep down the right but his delivery is poor.
    • 37' Zabaleta has to clear a low cross into the box while falling as Leeds have a rare attack.
    • 36' Javi Garcia flashes a header just wide from a corner – nearly a third goal for City.
    • 35' Just seen a replay of an incident where it appeared something was thrown from the Leeds fans at Kolarov – maybe a cigarette lighter – let's hope it is an isolated incident.
    • 34' Zabaleta perhaps lucky to escape without a booking for a foul on Brown.
    • 33' Kolarov with a shot from a tricky angle – not much power on it but Ashdown almost spills it before gathering.
    • 32' Yaya Toure with a fizzing half-volley from outside the box that Ashdown as to tip over the bar.
    • 31' City enjoying a spell of pressure now but Leeds for now keeping them at bay.
    • 29' Byram slices Kolarov's free towards his own goal and it hits the side-netting – some fans in the ground thought it was in.
    • 28' Leeds fans using the break to do their version of the Poznan and the City fans then decide to do it themselves.
    • 27' Stephen Warnock goes down after getting a kick in a 'delicate' area.
    • 26' Lees just can't read the flight of a ball into the box but Leeds at least showing something now.
    • 25' City defend the corner but Leeds now a free-kick that they can whip into the box.
    • 24' Diouf wins a corner for Leeds – an away goal would liven things up.
    • 23' A rather drab period of the game at the moment and you suspect there is a danger this game just fizzles out with City basically having the job done already.
    • 21' City have a chance to attack with numbers but Silva uncharacteristically does not get his pass right.
    • 20' Diouf flashes a header towards goal but it goes harmlessly over the bar.
    • 19' Hint of a handball from Nastasic while controlling the ball just outside the box but it is waved away.
    • 18' Milner charged with a foul on his former Aston Villa team-mate Warnock.
    • 17' Zabaleta nearly puts Milner free down the right but he was just offside.
    • 16' Leeds have left plenty of space early and have been ruthlessly punished. They may want to tighten up a bit or this could be a thrashing.
    • 15' GOAL FOR CITY!!! Aguero puts Ashdown the wrong way. Michael Brown made him re-spot but it did not prove to be any problem for the Argentine.
    • 14' PENALTY FOR CITY!!! Aguero turns Lees and the box and the Leeds centre back just tugs him back a bit. You usually get away with those but not this time.
    • 13' Aguero turns Austin in the box and then checks it back to Tevez who fires it into the side netting. The City strikers look like they're in the mood.
    • 11' Yaya Toure has a shot blocked by a combination of Peltier and Warnock and then Silva flashes a shot wide. Peltier needs some treatment after that block but should be okay.
    • 10' Tricky work from Aguero inside the box – he looks to create a shooting angle but Lees steps in and makes an important tackle.
    • 8' Michael Brown goes in heavy on Yaya Toure before goading him a little so Toure decides to push him to the ground. Clattenburg has a word with both but no cards.
    • 7' The Eithad looks pretty full today – with a large away support from Leeds.
    • 6' Well that is exactly the start Leeds did not want. The uphill task has become a mountainous one.
    • 5' GOAL FOR MANCHESTER CITY!!! Lovely goal too with Yaya Toure started it and finished it. First he played a one-two with Silva then with Tevez before he rounded the keeper and fired into the net. Classy stuff with Tevez's little dink that set him clear superb.
    • 5' Luke Varney has a chance to attack at City but then loses balance just before reaching the box.
    • 3' Nice quick break from City but Zabaleta's cross was too close to Ashdown.
    • 2' Correction on the referee – it is actually Mark Clattenburg who is in charge today – I was fed wrong information.
    • 2' First cross into the box comes from Leeds – Sam Byram whipping a cross in. Zabaleta had Varney covered though.
    • 1' Both sides wearing their traditional home colours and Leeds have got us underway.
    • 13:55 Chris Foy is the referee today. He has refereed Leefs in the Cup already this season. A 1-1 draw with Birmingham - he has issued only one red card this season and that was when Eden Hazard kicked a ball boy.
    • 13:50 No surprise to Manchester City as big favourites today – they are best priced 2/9. You can get as big as 16/1 if you fancy a Leeds win while the draw is typically 6/1 or 7/1 depending on the firm.
    • 13:45 This will mark the sixth occasion that Manchester City and Leeds United have clashed in the FA Cup. Leeds lead the head-to-head with three wins to two.
    • 13:40 Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says will take few chances in this match. Mancini taking cup clash seriously
    • 13:35 Leeds manager Neil Warnock admits he would not swap jobs with Roberto Mancini as he prepares to lock horns with his Manchester City counterpart. Warnock not envious of Mancini
    • 13:30 Leeds make a change at goalkeeper with Jamie Ashdown coming in for Paddy Kenny. El Hadji Diouf, Rodolph Austin and Aidan White are three other changes to the side that 1-0 at Middlesbrough. Norris, Green and Morison drop out of the starting XI.
    • 13:25 City make six changes from the side that lost to Southampton last weekend. Costel Pantilimon (their Cup keeper) Aleksandar Kolarov, Kolo Toure, Matija Nastasic, James Milner and the returing Carlos Tevez all come into the side. Hart, Lescott, Clichy, Barry, Nasri and Dzeko move out.
