  • Man City 2 Chelsea 0. All over and it is Manuel Pellegrini's side who make their way into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

  • Garcia now down, after being barged over by Salah. Final few seconds ticking away. Mourinho still out on the sidelines, but has given up with the theatrics. City win a late throw deep in Chelsea territory. Ball worked to Navas, who slices a volley well off target.

  • Oscar running through midfield, but has little to aim at. Ivanovic offers an outlet, but he is faced by two City defenders. Salah has a go, but scuffs a low cross into the hands of Pantilimon.

  • Hazard runs the ball out of play as once again he sees space shut down around him. City back into their passing groove. Just a case of going through the motions now.

  • Nasri tries to feed a low pass into Negredo, who has got in behind Cahill. A sliding challenge cuts the ball out, but Negredo sets off after it and puts in a full-blooded challenge to prevent Chelsea clearing long.

  • Four minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • A rousing chorus of Blue Moon rings out around the Etihad. Chelsea pegged back by their own corner flag. They lose the ball, but prevent Toure from shooting from distance. Navas can cross, but his delivery is headed clear.

  • Matic with a cynical challenge on Toure, which leaves him in a crumpled heap. Also a coming together between Nasri and Mikel. Tempers threatening to boil over. Matic has been shown a yellow card.

  • Hazard lets an Ivanovic pass run past him. Matic looks to gather, but Zabaleta snaps at his heels. City try to counter, with Navas leading the charge. He is frustrated to see a shoulder-to-shoulder tussle with Azpilicueta go against him.

  • Kompany floats the ball forward, but onto the boot of Luiz. Hazard cut out again by another well-timed tackle. He has been well shackled this evening.

  • Nasri pulls Cahill out of position, and squares for Toure. No way through for City on this occasion. Hazard can run the ball out and feed a ball in behind for Torres to chase. Lescott takes no chances as he turns the ball out from in front of his own goalkeeper.

  • Hazard's corner is met powerfully by Negredo. Chelsea gather again and return the ball to the box. Matic wants to take a touch inside the box, allowing Lescott to nip in and prod behind. Hazard's second corner is plucked out of the air by Pantilimon.

  • Another card coming out, and it will be shown to Garcia. He had another nibble at Mikel. Hazard floats the free-kick forward, and it is touched behind for a corner.

  • Pantilimon with a sliced clearance, which allows Salah to get down the right. He sends over a low cross, which is cut out by the retreating Garcia. Chelsea try again, but Hazard clips a tame cross into the hands of Pantilimon.

  • Torres outnumbered as Chelsea look for him again. They can't expect him to do much when he is surrounded by City defenders. He needs support alongside him if they are going to go long. Too easy to contain.

  • The final change of the evening sees City shuffle their attacking options, with Dzeko making way for Negredo. He has been nursing a knock of late as well, so the minutes here will do him good.

  • Ivanovic whips over a cross, which Lescott meets. City struggle to clear their lines for a moment, allowing Azpilicueta to set his sights from distance. His 30-yard drive sails into the stands.

  • Torres is found this time, but his glancing header won't fall to Salah. City decide to go long this time, but the ball skips off the surface and away from Dzeko. Cech to the edge of his box to gather.

  • Keep-ball from City as they work their way back to Kompany. Chelsea rushing around but getting nowhere. Navas instead finds Dzeko, who sees an ambitious effort from distance blocked by Cahill. Matic goes long towards Torres, but only finds Pantilimon.

  • City win another free-kick, with Chelsea not helping their own cause at the moment. Salah does well to track back and prevent Milner from slipping into space again.
