Manchester United are still well on top at Wembley, although they haven't managed to manufacture any chances as clear-cut as the ones Dimitar Berbatov wasted in the early going. Their latest attempts include a Nani free kick that slammed into the wall and bounced out for a corner as well as an acrobatic headed effort from that corner by Berbatov, who saw his header loop over Joe Hart's crossbar and then saw Pablo Zabeleta's head coming towards him at speed - the Bulgarian is now being treated for a bloody nose.
City used the brief spell of having a man advantage to try to settle the game down a little bit, and by the time Berbatov was back on the pitch they were in the middle of manufacturing their first real chance. David Silva swung in a cross from the right, and although Mario Balotelli got his feet tangled up he was able to eventually shuttle the ball to midfielder Gareth Barry, who turned John O-Shea expertly while taking a shot, only to see it miss the post by about two inches and slam into the side netting. Very good try by the oft-criticised England man.
