  • Thanks for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed the game.

  • Chelsea came very close to forcing extra time but have paid the price for a poor first half which Man CIty dominated. City good value for their win though and will be feeling very confident that they can lift the FA Cup for the second time in three years when they face Wigan in the final.

  • It's all over and it is Man City who make the final after an excellent football game between two great teams.

  • Hazard goes for goal from outside the area, but it travels high and wide. Should be it now for City.

  • Torres is told to get to his feet as he falls on the edge of the City box. Just a minute of added time left.

  • City almost seal the win as they break forward with pace. It is a great run from Toure who goes all way before setting up Aguero but the striker doesn't approach it right and can't help touching it towards Cech, who was wide of his own goal.

  • Aguero holds the ball up brilliantly for City, but Chelsea eventually win the ball when a third defender comes in to challenge the skilful Argentine.

  • Torres is outraged that a penalty is not given claiming that he was held back by Kompany. Tough one to call.

  • Nasri is coming off to be replaced by Lescott as Mancini tries to bolster his defence for these last few minutes.

  • There's only five minutes to go but it is hard to see this game ending the way it is.

  • Milner loses his footing slightly as he collects the pass from Toure and Oscar seizes on that as he slides in to win the ball.

  • An outstanding lofted pass into the box from Mata is so close to finding Torres, but the Spaniard can't reach it before Pantilimon gratefully grasps.

  • Aguero lunges into Luiz after the two tussle for the ball, and the Argentine would surely have been sent off had the referee seen that.

  • City have a rare attack but Toure misses the target after a strong run, although he did seem to be tripped by Oscar as he was about to shoot. Nothing given.

  • Luiz goes close but his effort his slightly off target, although Pantilimon probably had it covered.

  • Luiz looks like he is readying himself to blast it at goal.

  • Kompany knew exactly what he was doing as he body-checked Mata. He is shown a yellow card and Chelsea have several players who will fancy this free-kick.

  • Chelsea having much more possession at the moment and City are having to keep men behind the ball.

  • Chelsea deep inside Man City's half again as they try to build another goalscoring attack.

  • We should be in store for an exciting last 15 or so minutes here at Wembley. Chelsea have really turned it on.
