City Vs. United, 2011 FA Cup 3rd Round: Danny Welbeck Doubles United Lead

That's this game over then. Despite being down to ten men Manchester City were looking pretty decent, even forcing Anders Lindegaard into a sublime flying save shortly after losing captain Vincent Kompany to a straight red, but Manchester United have been looking very dangerous indeed on the counterattack and they've made their hosts pay again.

Patrice Evra did well to get to the touchline and pull a cross back towards a crowd of bodies in the penalty area, but it looked like the chance had gone when the ball popped off a boot and looked set to drop between Samir Nasri and Nigel de Jong. But both City players hesitated and allowed Danny Welbeck to rush back into position, and the United striker sent a sweet hooked volley straight into the bottom corner of the goal, with Costel Pantilimon more or less helpless. That's 2-0 United and this match looks over. Revenge for 6-1, anyone?
