    • Manchester City
    • Aston Villa
    • 120+1 And that's it! Villa dump out City in another shock in the League Cup! It finishes 4-2 and silence at Eastlands!
    • 118' N'Zogbia is brought down by Kolarov as he runs away down the wing and it's a booking.
    • 113' GOAL VILLA! IT'S 4-2! Massive deflection takes the ball over the keeper Pantimilon, a freak goal. Agbonlahor's low shot took a huge touch off a City player, and that should be that.
    • 108' Kolo Toure clatters into N'Zogbia and he is booked.
    • 105' Young City winger Razak is injured, he is replaced by French full-back Helan.
    • 103 Fantastic defending by Vlaar as City scythed through the Villa defence, a corner.
    • 95' GOAL VILLA! Agbonlahor with a fierce shot from the edge of the box, well saved by the keeper but tapped in by N'Zogbia!! 3-2 to Villa!
    • 90+4 Manchester City and Aston Villa will need extra time after a 2-2 draw. Tevez hit the bar late on but Villa very much in it!
    • 71' GOAL VILLA! 2-2! Agbonlahor finds the net! Villa back on level terms! A fine low finish from 18 yards after good work from Benteke!
    • 63' City have had enough of this and have chucked Sinclair on. They have a free-kick just outside the box, Kolarov territory - AND HE SCORES! Fantastic curling free-kick. you just know he'll score from there!
    • 58' GOAL VILLA! The equaliser comes Agbonlahor skinning Lescot, Nastajic tackles but the loose ball finds Weimann whose low cross is batted out by the keeper - but only against Barry and in, an own goal. 1-1.
    • 29' GOAL CITY! Balotelli shrugs off his eye issue to drill a super low finish past Guzan after a nice first touch off Milner's pass. His first goal in seven games. 1-0.
    • 13' Big miss Villa! Bennett combines well with N'Zogbia, he gets past Milner and Toure, his cross is blocked by Lescott but Weimann should score only to sky it from eight yards!
    • 11' Not great for City - Balotelli, who appears to have these chronic eye problems, has gone down holding his face... He's up again. He had eye surgery recently, so he wouldn't have to wear contacts, which have been causing him conjunctivitis.
    • 2' Rodwell was named in the XI for City - but he's not there. Lescott instead. Not sure what happened but probably injured in the warm-up. Nastajic, meanwhile, steps into midfield. Silky for a defender, but surely you'd have a defender at right back and put Milner in the middle?
    • 19:20 An odd XI for City, with a mix of teenage academy players you've never heard of, like Denis Suarez and Abdul Razak, and jobbing Englishmen, while Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli lead the line. Jack Rodwell starts, and James Milner plays right-back it seems. Villa go with three up front as Darren Bent makes way for Andreas Weimann. Lowton gets a start too but closer to a first XI than City's team.
    • 19:20 TEAMS - Manchester City: Pantilimon, Kolarov, K. Toure, Nastasic, Milner, Rodwell, Barry, Razak, Suarez, Tevez, Balotelli /// Villa: Given, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Bennett, El Ahmadi, Delph, N’Zogbia, Agbonlahor, Weimann, Benteke.
