Manchester City Vs. Stoke City, 2011 FA Cup Final: Robert Huth Sees Yellow For Two-Footed Lunge On Micah Richards

More minutes, more Manchester City pressure, more red-card-worthy offences from Robert Huth. Micah Richards is in possession and attempting to move towards the flank, which leads the ex-Chelsea centre half to fly in with a two footed scissor tackle. It earns him a yellow card, but that should be a straight red card, just like the elbow to Mario Balotelli's head earlier. Aleksandar Kolarov takes the free kick, so naturally it goes about ten yards over Thomas Sorensen's crossbar.

Nigel de Jong then attempts a sidefooted shot from 25 yards after excellent work from David Silva and Yaya Toure. The Dutch midfielder opted to sacrifice power for accuracy and managed neither, dribbling an appalling weak effort well wide of goal. He probably should have just hit that one. If I haven't talked about Stoke attack for a while, it's because they haven't gotten out of their half for longer than five seconds at a time for a little while, which is slightly sad.
