  • The full-time whistle goes and Manchester City have safely booked their place in the FA Cup semi-finals after an impressive 5-0 victory over Barnsley, with Carlos Tevez netting a hat-trick.

  • City win a couple of late corners but cannot add to their winning margin as Lescott heads over at the back post from Milner's cross.

  • Barnsley may be about to exit the FA Cup but they can still reflect with pride on their run to the quarter-finals and must now concentrate on a Championship relegation battle, after today's results left them bottom of the table.

  • Milner almost makes it six for Man City with a ferocious strike that leaves the woodwork rattling before bouncing away to safety.

  • City may have been magnificent today but it has been a frustrating afternoon for Dzeko, who continues to shoot from just about anywhere but is not getting any closer as he slams his latest effort high and wide from distance.

  • Harewood tries to latch on to a pass at the far post but is unable to turn it back on goal and threaten Pantilimon.

  • It is a bit like a training session at the moment for City as they play keep-ball and just run the clock down.

  • Mellis has looked lively for Barnsley since coming on and again shows a few good touches as Barnsley try to pick a way through City's defence.

  • Dzeko lets fly with an angled drive from distance which flies just wide of Steele's left-hand post.

  • Tevez gets a tremendous ovation as he is replaced by Milner for the closing stages. The Argentine striker has been in superb form today to lead City to a convincing rout, but he does not get the warmest reception from Mancini as he leaves the field.

  • Barnsley are being allowed a little more time and space here and they are relishing the opportunity to string a few passes together, although at the moment there is no sign of a goal for the away side.

  • The ball falls for Harewood just outside the area and he has no hesitation in shooting, but his effort flies harmlessly wide.

  • Man City can afford to just go through the motions and keep possession from here on in, only springing forward sporadically to try and add further goals.

  • Razak tries his luck with a shot from 20 yards which is sliced so badly wide it only just goes out for a goal-kick rather than a throw-in.

  • That goal will be Silva's last act for the day as the Spaniard makes way for Razak.

  • GOAL! Silva gets in on the act as Man City make it 5-0. Again Tevez is involved as he plays in a cross from the right which Silva converts at the second attempt, after his initial shot is saved by Steele.

  • Man City increase the tempo again and Barnsley just can't live with them when they are in full flow, as Dzeko drills a powerful effort wide.

  • Tunniciliffe shows great pace to sprint through the centre and get a shot away, but Pantilimon spreads a leg out to make a good save and then makes a more comfortable stop from Mellis' follow-up strike.

  • Dzeko is released through the middle and takes the ball down beautifully, but he does not quite get enough elevation on his attempted chip over the onrushing Steele and the keeper reaches up to make the save.

  • City could be forgiven for taking their foot off the gas here but they will be determined not to let Barnsley get back into the tie.
