That was an odd save from Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, who just about managed to avoid conceding from the free kick which saw Pablo Zabaleta booked. Nani stepped over the ball and smashed it towards the top right corner, only to see the ball deflected back towards the centre after grazing Mario Balotelli's head in the wall. Hart had already started his dive and so was forced to stick out a hand to deflect the shot over, just about suceeding in tipping the effort onto the crossbar. That's as close as Manchester United have come all game.
Before the free kick was taken, incidentally, Antonio Valencia was taken off for Javier Hernandez as United shifted to a 4-4-2. Will it be enough to get Sir Alex Ferguson's side back into the match? Obviously it's impossible to write off United at any point, and City are going to be very uncomfortable until they get that second goal. Meanwhile, Mario Balotelli earend himself a booking for hacking down Michael Carrick. Nervy? You bet.
