Manchester City Vs. Stoke City, 2011 FA Cup Final: Kenwyne Jones Takes Stoke's First Shot

Isn't Matty Etherington usually much quicker than this? The winger is just back from a hamstring injury and doesn't seem to be moving particularly well - not that that's stopping both Micah Richards and Nigel de Jong from ganging up on him as soon as he gets possession. He quickly runs into a dead end.

At the other end of the pitch, Carlos Tevez burst into the area and nicks the ball past Thomas Sorensen, but his touch takes him too far outside and he's forced to work the ball back into the box. Eventually Stoke clear, but wow, Sorensen could easily have brought Tevez down there - he grabbed his leg only for Tevez to wrestle free.

Now it's time for Stoke's first shot, with Kenwyne Jones and Jonathan Walters linking up only for Jones' effort to be blocked before it could make its way to Joe Hart in a situation far more perilous than the sentence so far looks. Seconds later, Jones wins a free kick from Vincent Kompany, which is blasted well, well over from Marc Wilson.
