Manchester City Vs. Stoke City, 2011 FA Cup Final: Yaya Toure Gives Manchester City Lead

What's this? A zombie invasion of Wembley? Oh, no, it's just Adam Johnson coming in for Gareth Barry. As you were, gentlemen. Manchester City will be switching formations as a result, but it's not entirely clear where Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez will play.

Not that Manchester City fans will care though - after a melee in the Stoke City box Yaya Toure has given Roberto Mancini's side the lead! It wasn't a pretty goal by any means but Stoke defence was unable to clear and eventually paid the price as Toure lashed an unstoppable shot home past Thomas Sorensen after pouncing on a loose ball. All too easy for City, there, and they only have to hold out for fifteen more minutes to tear down that banner at the Streford end of Old Trafford.

Stoke, understandably, aren't thoroughly pleased with having conceded, and they don't look like getting one back here. Rough on Tony Pulis' team.
