Manchester City Vs. Reading, FA Cup: Lineups

Fresh off complaining about how small his squad was, Roberto Mancini has found himself leaving England internationals off the team entirely as Manchester City prepare to host Reading. Never has the phrase 'an embarrassment of riches' been more apt. Anyway, a semifinal date with Manchester United is the reward for winning today (or in the replay, I suppose), and if that's not enough to get City fired up, they probably should all just go home and become farmers. Reading did manage to beat Everton at Goodison Park last round though, so it's not as though they'll be pushovers, and the Royals will be relishing their chance to ruin the chance of a Manchester derby FA Cup semifinal.

Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Joe Hart, Aleksander Kolarov, Joleon Lescott, Vincent Kompany, Micah Richards; Nigel de Jong, Patrick Vieira; David Silva, Yaya Toure, Shaun Wright-Phillips; Carlos Tevez.

Substitutes: Stuart Taylor, Dedryck Boyata, Gareth Barry, Abdul Razak, Mario Balotelli, Eden Dzeko, Jo.

Reading (4-4-2?): Alex McCarthy; Jay Tabb, Brynjar Gunnarsson, Zurab Khizanishvili, Ian Harte; Jimmy Kebe, Jum Karacan, Mikele Leigertwood, Jobi McAnuff; Shane Long, Noel Hunt.

Substitutes: Mikkel Andersen, Andy Griffin, Michail Antonio, Simon Church, Hal Robson-Kanu, Brian Howard, Jake Taylor.
