Manchester United Vs. Manchester City, FA Cup Semi-Final: Flurry Of United Shots Stopped By Joe Hart

Michael Carrick has come reasonably close to getting Manchester United on the scoresheet, but ultimately his end product wasn't worthy of his build-up and he sent his curling attempt straight into the grateful arms of Joe Hart after doing very well to find himself space to shot inside the area. Manchester City don't seem too worried about the threat of ten-man United, which could easily come back to bite them - Javier Hernandez nearly squirmed through in the box and Park Ji-Sung drew a routine save out of Hart with a cross.

Roberto Mancini has made his first substitution of the match, by the way, bringing off the tiring Adam Johnson for Shaun Wright-Phillips, who looks more than capable of blowing by Patrice Evra at will whenever he has the ball - Sir Alex Ferguson might to well to replace Evra with someone who doesn't look quite so exhausted. That said, John O'Shea is also looking terrible, and Ferguson has just one more substitute available to him. Hmmm.
