We're into the dying seconds of the match now and Manchester United are still trailing their cross-city rivals by a goal to nil, and are also down to ten men. Cross after cross is being swung in, but that's a foul by Fabio da Silva with no time left and that must be the end of the line for United and victory for underdogs Manchester City. Indeed it is! Mike Dean puts his whistle to his lips, and three peeps later City have booked their place in the FA Cup final!
Mario Balotelli, of course, can't help himself but to mock Rio Ferdinand after the final whistle, and the two start a bit of a contretemps and have to be separated by Edwin van der Sar. United's players trudge off as City celebrate on the Wembley turf - Wayne Rooney watches on from the stands. How different would the match have been had the inspirational striker been able to play?
Manchester City, of course, won't care. They're just one more win from their first piece of silverware in decades, and their place in the final is well deserved. Will they be facing Stoke City or Bolton Wanderers? We'll find out tomorrow.
