The fourth round of the Emirates FA

Cup has brought all conquering

0:00:520:00:57

Manchester City to South Wales to

face a Cardiff side who would love

0:00:570:01:01

to upset the odds this afternoon.

They have done it before when they

0:01:010:01:04

were playing across the road, they

have built houses there are now,

0:01:040:01:10

maybe they should have named one of

the streets and Nathan Blake away.

0:01:100:01:17

Every player has a day when you have

that chance of glory. That one

0:01:170:01:22

moment to change career your life.

The 29th of January 1994 was my

0:01:220:01:28

moment. We were in the third tier

back then. They were the big boys.

0:01:280:01:35

But you always get a chance.

Sweet

turn, he still got it, magnificent

0:01:350:01:43

goal by Nathan Blake!

Was at the

best goal of my career? Possibly.

0:01:430:01:50

Manchester City of the Premiership

are stunned by some magic.

We still

0:01:500:01:56

had half an hour to go, we needed

heroes.

Great save!

That win changed

0:01:560:02:04

my career and my life.

A famous

result of Cardiff City, Nathan

0:02:040:02:10

Blake's magical goal has got them to

the next round of the FA Cup for the

0:02:100:02:16

first time in 17 years.

Today that

moment is here again.

0:02:160:02:20

Great memories, he got a move to the

top flight soon after that and the

0:02:230:02:30

current vintage are targeting

promotion back to the Premier League

0:02:300:02:33

after four seasons in the

Championship. Neil Warnock at the

0:02:330:02:36

head, just the 1400- odd games for

him. Pep Guardiola in his second

0:02:360:02:43

season in British football but his

team are running away with the

0:02:430:02:46

Premier League and earlier in the

week reached the final of the League

0:02:460:02:49

Cup. Sell-out crowd expected here,

33,000 of them at the Cardiff City

0:02:490:02:56

Stadium for this final tie of the

Emirates FA Cup fourth round.

0:02:560:03:00

Alongside Allen Shearer today we

have got Joleon Lescott and Danny

0:03:000:03:06

gathered in, we are trying to even

it out a little bit. In many ways

0:03:060:03:11

you could not get to contrasting

styles?

No, Pep Guardiola is the

0:03:110:03:18

best of the new breed, charismatic

and stylish, wants to play the

0:03:180:03:22

beautiful game of football where

Neil Warnock is as old school as

0:03:220:03:26

they come. Never afraid to say what

he wants to say. He would love it if

0:03:260:03:32

he could put one over Pep Guardiola

today.

He certainly would. You won

0:03:320:03:38

the Allen FA Cup in 2011, they are

constantly improving and look

0:03:380:03:46

magnificent at times.

I think you

can rule out complacency, Pep said

0:03:460:03:54

he does not want that to appear

hopefully it doesn't today. And I

0:03:540:03:59

think you played here just a years

ago?

0:03:590:04:05

ago?

Cardiff on top?

Maybe he didn't

play!

I was out there.

Danny after

0:04:050:04:16

the Newport team setting the tone

after giving Spurs are scared maybe

0:04:160:04:21

we can expect more of the same from

Cardiff?

0:04:210:04:25

we can expect more of the same from

Cardiff?

Hopefully, Newport County

0:04:250:04:30

were fantastic, dashed down the road

and showing what can be done, I

0:04:300:04:32

thought they were unlucky not to

hang onto the win but fantastic for

0:04:320:04:35

them to go to Wembley and get a

replay and hopefully

0:04:350:04:40

them to go to Wembley and get a

replay and hopefully Cardiff can

0:04:400:04:41

take some inspiration.

Imagine that,

playing at Wembley on the fourth

0:04:410:04:45

round.

That was the least they

deserve, it was a hell of a

0:04:450:04:49

performance.

Let's get the team

news.

Thank you Gary, for Cardiff

0:04:490:04:56

City under Neil Warnock who have

made two changes as far as the hosts

0:04:560:05:00

are concerned, Neil Etheridge in

goal, 12 clean sheets so far this

0:05:000:05:04

season.

0:05:040:05:05

Grujic on loan from Liverpool and

making his second appearance today.

0:05:180:05:23

Junior Hoilett with eight goals and

six assists.

0:05:230:05:29

six assists. For Manchester City

four changes by Pep Guardiola after

0:05:300:05:32

the 3-2 win against Bristol City.

Claudio Bravo has started all six

0:05:320:05:36

domestic cup ties. Tenth appearance

this season for Vincent Kompany.

0:05:360:05:44

No specialist striker starting but

Raheem Sterling looking to add to

0:06:010:06:03

all his goals in all competitions.

No special striker for Manchester

0:06:030:06:07

City but they still look formidable.

We have seen Pep Guardiola play that

0:06:070:06:16

formation, he likes his players to

have some freedom, he looks pretty

0:06:160:06:20

relaxed as you would expect of the

season May are having. Coming back

0:06:200:06:24

today someone we can look at is

Vincent Kompany, he's had terrible

0:06:240:06:28

luck with injuries.

We know what he

is as a player and a person having

0:06:280:06:32

worked alongside him. Great guy,

works incredibly hard. But he's just

0:06:320:06:37

had so much bad luck regarding

injuries.

Frustrating.

He just seems

0:06:370:06:44

to get over one and then another one

pops up. It must be incredibly

0:06:440:06:48

frustrating for him. You can see

what it means to him. You need to

0:06:480:06:53

get out there, you need gametime,

five or six games and he does not

0:06:530:06:57

seem able to do it.

In the last few

weeks Manchester City have started

0:06:570:07:02

to concede a couple more goals than

they were prior to that.

Yes, up

0:07:020:07:09

player of his stature anyone will

miss him. I spoke to him after the

0:07:090:07:13

last injury and he was still upbeat,

still confident he can maintain his

0:07:130:07:18

fitness for the important stage of

the season he said.

He strikes me as

0:07:180:07:22

a real leader.

Definitely, he likes

to control everything, in the right

0:07:220:07:27

way. He demands respect and the

effort put in in training.

One or

0:07:270:07:33

two weaknesses perhaps in the last

few weeks defensively that perhaps

0:07:330:07:37

Cardiff can exploit?

Of course, I

think the goals they have been

0:07:370:07:41

conceding there is a

0:07:410:07:42

think the goals they have been

conceding there is a lack of

0:07:420:07:42

communication. I think if you look

at this one, the first one, they are

0:07:420:07:47

moving up at different times. Fabian

Delph could potentially say to Sane

0:07:470:07:54

to get closer to his man. This one

may be just trying to overplay it at

0:07:540:07:59

times.

It will be a very, certainly

a different test today than the game

0:07:590:08:09

against Bristol City, Bristol City

were not afraid, they had ago, when

0:08:090:08:13

forward and tried to take the to

Manchester City. I think Cardiff

0:08:130:08:21

today will sit deep and give them

possession of the

0:08:210:08:22

today will sit deep and give them

possession of the ball and try to

0:08:220:08:23

get as many set pieces and long

throws as they can.

If there is a

0:08:230:08:28

weakness, who do Cardiff have that

can exploit them?

If you look at the

0:08:280:08:32

front three they are playing with,

on the counterattack lots of pace

0:08:320:08:37

and power, Junior Hoilett in

particular has been the main man

0:08:370:08:40

this season. Zohore not so much but

on his day a real handful. And

0:08:400:08:46

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing was producing

match-winning performances at the

0:08:460:08:51

start of the season. Gone off the

boil a little bit of late but on

0:08:510:08:55

their day that front three is really

difficult to handle.

Neil Warnock

0:08:550:09:00

was appointed Cardiff manager last

season when the club in the

0:09:000:09:03

relegation places and he now has

them challenging for promotion. He

0:09:030:09:06

knows how to motivate team.

0:09:060:09:08

You know when they have these ideas

of making managers were microphones

0:09:140:09:18

I just feel it would not be a good

idea with Neil Warnock.

Penalty

0:09:180:09:24

kick, red card, discuss?

I am

disgusted. I say what I think and

0:09:240:09:30

it's cost me a wed over the years.

Telling the assistant referee he

0:09:300:09:34

should have these.

Look at me while

I am talking.

His style of

0:09:340:09:40

management can be unorthodox.

Don't

try and do everything, just what you

0:09:400:09:46

are good at.

They are sexed down and

he's arguing about a corner kick.

0:09:460:09:56

You have to enjoy every minute of

it.

0:09:560:10:02

Dare I say you have mellowed a

little over the years?

I think

0:10:020:10:06

everyone does as you get older. I

still get a bit carried away now and

0:10:060:10:10

then but I think that's why I am

still in the game. I enjoy football

0:10:100:10:14

and I enjoyed the lads I have got in

my team this season and others I

0:10:140:10:18

have our promotions, it's been

great.

Manchester City the visitors

0:10:180:10:23

next, after 37 years in management

do you still get excited by

0:10:230:10:26

occasions like this.

We knew in the

draw was made we had to put a full

0:10:260:10:31

team at Mansfield and get this draw

because the fans deserve it. Coming

0:10:310:10:35

to the growing today, two and a half

hours before the game and its

0:10:350:10:39

chock-a-block. It has taken the

imagination, the kids coming in,

0:10:390:10:45

they can get them to come back for

the league games, it's super. The FA

0:10:450:10:49

Cup as something about it. We could

have picked a better team than

0:10:490:10:53

Manchester City to play against but

you cannot have everything!

You have

0:10:530:10:56

asked for some devilment in your

approach, what do you mean?

We will

0:10:560:11:00

not be too in all of them, you see

the team sheet and it is frightening

0:11:000:11:04

but I think its great for us to put

our wits against them. I am looking

0:11:040:11:08

forward seeing one or two

challenges. We will have to defend

0:11:080:11:13

really well, they are the best team

in the country is not the world at

0:11:130:11:16

the moment. But I think it's just

got to inspire us.

Facilities here

0:11:160:11:20

are terrific. But no room for

manoeuvre in terms of the cold

0:11:200:11:26

shower treatment, any tricks are

pure sleeve?

Those days are gone

0:11:260:11:33

now, you just have to believe in

your own team. It's the first time

0:11:330:11:36

in four decades, this is the highest

grade we have had, the best since he

0:11:360:11:42

had the new stadium so let's enjoy

it and hope that a good game for you

0:11:420:11:45

guys.

His team are currently third

in the Championship but just one win

0:11:450:11:54

in the last six games. He asked for

some devilment from his team, that

0:11:540:12:01

doesn't surprise me!

That is him all

over. I had half a season under him

0:12:010:12:06

when he was QPR manager and he was a

fantastic motivator and man manager.

0:12:060:12:11

The first time he will see a full

house as Cardiff City manager, they

0:12:110:12:15

will thrive off that atmosphere. The

players will be well up for the

0:12:150:12:19

game. He loves being the underdog.

He loves these occasions and it's

0:12:190:12:23

why he still in the job.

He will

love this atmosphere here today. He

0:12:230:12:29

will have been on about it all week

getting them all pumped up and they

0:12:290:12:33

will be doing exactly the same in

the dressing room to his players.

0:12:330:12:37

Similar personality to Pep

Guardiola...

I would say exactly the

0:12:370:12:47

opposite!

Junior Hoilett perhaps the

man most likely to open up

0:12:470:12:52

Manchester City if anyone? Bean

yeah, he's played at the highest

0:12:520:12:55

level, played in the Premier League

and shown he can handle that kind of

0:12:550:12:58

company.

The last couple of seasons

his career has stagnated a little

0:12:580:13:04

but Neil Warnock has taken the

chance on him, he's come to Cardiff

0:13:040:13:07

City and seems to have riveted his

career. Top goal-scorer with eight,

0:13:070:13:14

that is playing of the left hand

side so it's a good return. He has

0:13:140:13:18

the individual ability on his day.

He is a matchwinner. They will be

0:13:180:13:23

looking to get the ball to him as

much that they can this afternoon.

0:13:230:13:27

Just have to get the ball first.

Exactly.

It could be a busy day for

0:13:270:13:33

the Cardiff City defenders, the

stats are not bad at all.

0:13:330:13:39

I am a manager for the correct pass,

the speed of the ball.

0:13:420:13:56

the speed of the ball.

How he

coaches people speaks for itself.

0:13:570:14:00

Each game he set his ideas and gives

us our blueprint.

Sometimes it

0:14:000:14:05

happens. I can imagine one game and

what we have to do, it's like chess.

0:14:050:14:14

I think Manchester City are the best

the Premier League has ever seen.

No

0:14:140:14:20

matter the opposition or the

competition in the next game is the

0:14:200:14:22

most important one, that is what the

manager has instilled in us.

Part of

0:14:220:14:27

your preparation for this game was a

trip to Mansfield is what did you

0:14:270:14:29

learn about Cardiff City?

How good a

team they are, what they do. What

0:14:290:14:36

they do they do really, really well.

Does it help that its second

0:14:360:14:41

Championship opposition in five

days?

Yes. That competition in my

0:14:410:14:48

short experience here it's more

conjugated away from home especially

0:14:480:14:53

Championship team, last season

against Huddersfield and needed the

0:14:530:14:55

replay. The Championship is so

tough, I prefer Premier League teams

0:14:550:14:59

in the cup, in a way it's always

complicated.

What problems do you

0:14:590:15:07

expect from Cardiff City compare to

Bristol City?

They were both tough,

0:15:070:15:13

Bristol City we had two games, in

one game anything can happen. Two

0:15:130:15:19

games it a little bit easier in one

way because we have another chance.

0:15:190:15:23

But away in one game it's always

complicated.

You are starting today

0:15:230:15:29

without a recognised striker so what

are you looking for from your team?

0:15:290:15:34

Defend well, score goals, win the

game, go through. They defend

0:15:340:15:41

man-to-man, they follow the

position, they are so aggressive,

0:15:410:15:45

trying to make a lot of passes.

Good

luck today.

Thank you so much.

There

0:15:450:15:54

you go, so simple, defend well and

score a few goals.

He's honestly

0:15:540:16:00

going without a recognised centre

forward today in his line-up so he

0:16:000:16:05

will give his usual freedom to his

players, Sterling, Sane, De Bruyne,

0:16:050:16:13

they can go where they want.

Sterling is in very good form, 18

0:16:130:16:19

goals he's got this season so it

should not be a problem for them

0:16:190:16:22

playing that system.

They played

some beautiful football at times.

It

0:16:220:16:29

is great to watch. I am becoming a

bigger fan as the season goes on. My

0:16:290:16:34

kids watch the games and it's great

to watch and be a part of.

It's

0:16:340:16:38

going to be a tough afternoon.

Hopefully for Man City! They have to

0:16:380:16:46

defend well, that has been the

backbone of their success this

0:16:460:16:49

season but even more so today when

they get possession and they keep

0:16:490:16:52

fit enough to get the front three in

the game and then utilise the set

0:16:520:16:56

piece which they have. They are a

big and opposing team and if there

0:16:560:17:00

is a weakness with Manchester City I

think it's the physical side of the

0:17:000:17:03

game. But they have to get into

their half first!

Therein lies the

0:17:030:17:09

problem is. Let's go pitch side to

get to more opinion.

This man is an

0:17:090:17:15

absolute legend as part of south

Wales, Nathan Blake, 24 years ago

0:17:150:17:20

tomorrow you scored the winner when

you both played each other last in

0:17:200:17:23

the FA Cup, nobody will let you

forget it.

I don't think they well.

0:17:230:17:30

It was a fantastic occasion. A

little different to how it is today.

0:17:300:17:35

But full stadium, absolutely

bouncing.

0:17:350:17:44

bouncing. It was fantastic occasion.

Fantastic game. Let's hope they can

0:17:440:17:50

repeated today.

You look at the old

pitch there, is there a part of you

0:17:500:17:56

that wishes this cup tie was being

pledge under mac?

Absolutely, I

0:17:560:18:00

missed this ground like mad. But

things have progressed and moved on

0:18:000:18:05

and I suppose 24 years later, every

stadium needs to be upgraded, safety

0:18:050:18:12

issues and what have you but you

miss the old atmospheres and the old

0:18:120:18:15

grounds.

32, 30 3000 since you moved

here, how do Cardiff go by beating

0:18:150:18:23

Manchester City?

It shows the

significance of the fixture and I

0:18:230:18:28

think Cardiff play a game which can

be Manchester City. It will be

0:18:280:18:31

difficult, don't get me wrong, they

are one of the greatest teams in

0:18:310:18:35

Europe with the greatest manager for

me. But Cardiff play a very direct

0:18:350:18:41

system, long passing from back to

front to the likes of Zohore with

0:18:410:18:47

the strength and power to turn

people and run at people. And out

0:18:470:18:51

wide with Mendez-Laing and Hoilett

so they have got the perfect game.

0:18:510:18:55

The blueprint is simple, we will get

more during the half-time break but

0:18:550:18:58

back to you in the studio.

Thank you

Manish. We give me a bit of the

0:18:580:19:09

singing the players lining up in the

tunnel, will this be a lock on the

0:19:090:19:14

park for Manchester City?

I don't

think it will, they will face a

0:19:140:19:19

different style of play because

Cardiff or go from back to front

0:19:190:19:22

pretty quickly as we've all said,

they have to defend well, they need

0:19:220:19:28

a bit of luck somewhere along the

line but I don't think it will be a

0:19:280:19:31

walkover. I think they will give a

good account of themselves. I

0:19:310:19:43

Manchester City will want to press

high, but with the Cardiff style

0:19:430:19:51

they will want to go direct.

They

will want to give it their best

0:19:510:19:58

shot.

Yes, it's 11 against 11 at the

end of the day, a fantastic

0:19:580:20:04

atmosphere and a manager who has

been there and done it. They have to

0:20:040:20:08

be really disciplined defence of

life. You're not going to see a lot

0:20:080:20:12

of the ball at times so every player

has to be concentrating. When they

0:20:120:20:17

get the ball they have to affect the

game in an attacking sense as well.

0:20:170:20:21

The crowd is already up for the

occasion and the need to get them

0:20:210:20:24

going right from the kick-off.

Yes,

something like what Newport did.

We

0:20:240:20:34

know Manchester City will have a lot

of the ball and that generally

0:20:340:20:37

brings the crowd down.

That is what

Neil will have been working on. He

0:20:370:20:43

is expecting that.

I saw an

interviewer he said he took the ball

0:20:430:20:48

out of training because the players

have to learn to chase shadows!

They

0:20:480:20:51

might have to do a bit of that, but

if one goes, two goes, the others

0:20:510:20:57

have to follow, there is no point

going along because they Manchester

0:20:570:21:02

City team will pick them off but I

am sure Neil will have been working

0:21:020:21:07

on that.

Lets join our commentators

Guy Mowbray and Mark Lawrenson.

0:21:070:21:17

COMMENTATOR:

0:21:170:21:19

COMMENTATOR: Thank you, welcome to a

packed Cardiff City Stadium. Only a

0:21:190:21:25

few miles down the road in Newport

last night we saw south Wales is

0:21:250:21:30

well and truly up for the cup. We

have just enjoyed a particularly

0:21:300:21:37

rousing song.

0:21:370:21:39

We have already heard about 1994,

Manchester City's poor return in the

0:21:440:21:51

Welsh capital goes well beyond that.

They have all-male won once a way to

0:21:510:21:57

Cardiff in 14 visits since 19 54.

Does that have any bearing on today?

0:21:570:22:04

Not really. This Manchester City

side seems much more about making

0:22:040:22:08

new history.

0:22:080:22:10

Right from the start, it's been

happening for the last hour or so,

0:22:150:22:22

Cardiff City have been making a

whole lot of noise.

0:22:220:22:26

Let's take a look at the teams. Neil

Etheridge in goal for Cardiff as per

0:22:290:22:35

usual. And injury for the

experienced Sol Bamba means a switch

0:22:350:22:41

from a back three to a back four.

It's a second Cardiff game for

0:22:410:22:51

Grujic in midfield on loan from

Liverpool, he has to play at least

0:22:510:22:55

14 games during his time here or

else Cardiff face financial

0:22:550:22:58

penalties.

0:22:580:23:00

The Premier League leaders have

Claudio Bravo the domestic cup

0:23:100:23:14

keeper of the season. Vincent

Kompany making the latest of many

0:23:140:23:19

comebacks. His last was a short

appearance against Newcastle a month

0:23:190:23:22

ago.

0:23:220:23:27

ago. The absence of a recognised

striker is superficial really. 44

0:23:270:23:32

goals between the five upfront.

0:23:320:23:45

Two very different characters, with

very different ideas on the game and

0:23:450:23:51

style of play. One inescapable thing

that Pep Guardiola and Neil Warnock

0:23:510:23:57

have in common is they will both get

the absolute best from their squad

0:23:570:24:01

of players.

0:24:010:24:04

Our whole army of Cardiff City

mascots enjoying their big day. Lee

0:24:090:24:17

Mason the referee this afternoon. He

started his season here, back on the

0:24:170:24:23

15th of August.

0:24:230:24:26

Before the start, a lovely gesture

from Cardiff City there will be a

0:24:490:24:52

period of applause to pay tribute to

the contribution made to the game by

0:24:520:24:58

Jimmy Armfield and the former owner

of Barnsley to recognise how he

0:24:580:25:07

redirected the fortunes of Cardiff's

fellow Championship side. We

0:25:070:25:12

appreciate them both. APPLAUSE

0:25:120:25:17

APPLAUSE

0:25:250:25:35

APPLAUSE

0:25:440:25:52

CHEERING

0:25:530:26:01

We are all ready to go in Cardiff.

The FA Cup fourth round, Cardiff

0:26:020:26:07

have only made the fifth round once

in the last seven seasons and they

0:26:070:26:12

face a Manchester City side who have

reached at least round six in four

0:26:120:26:15

of those last seven years.

0:26:150:26:18

The first bit of possession will be

Cardiff's. I don't suppose they will

0:26:220:26:27

be having too much of that as the

game goes on. But that does not mean

0:26:270:26:31

that this will be by any means an

easy game for the runaway Premier

0:26:310:26:36

League leaders.

Not at all, we

expect lots of application

0:26:360:26:41

perspiration and organisation from

Cardiff. I have seen them play a

0:26:410:26:43

couple of times, if they get a

chance to tackle the will tackle.

0:26:430:26:52

The first successful tackle there

from Jazz Richards. Vincent Kompany

0:26:520:26:58

gets a little bit of time on the

ball.

Great to see him back isn't

0:26:580:27:02

it?

With David Silva back in Spain,

we wish him well, and Yaya Toure out

0:27:020:27:12

of favour Vincent Kompany is the

only player on the field who is a

0:27:120:27:17

member of the 2011 FA Cup winning

team, the trophy which got them

0:27:170:27:20

going.

0:27:200:27:24

Neil Etheridge is going to give that

the big one.

0:27:260:27:31

Sterling has started wide on the

right. It will ebb and flow, that

0:27:430:27:50

five-man midfield stroke attack.

I

think Manchester City will take it

0:27:500:27:55

in turns, it someday wants to go

forward and take up that striking

0:27:550:27:58

position they will be allowed to.

Sterling is on four games without a

0:27:580:28:03

goal which is his longest run

without scoring a season which just

0:28:030:28:06

shows the type of form he has been

in.

0:28:060:28:13

Sane is merely dart in from the

left. Fernandinho unable to slide

0:28:230:28:28

through. Here is members Lang,

putting the burners to storm passed

0:28:280:28:35

the new law. Might still be a chance

but Junior Hoilett unable to control

0:28:350:28:40

it, Kyle Walker clears.

Members

line, -- is Mendez-Laing quick or is

0:28:400:28:51

Danilo slow? It was hard to tell.

0:28:510:28:54

That has certainly woken up the

Cardiff City supporters.

0:29:000:29:06

Mendez-Laing has not scored since

August, five goals in his first five

0:29:060:29:10

games were Cardiff having joined on

a free transfer from Rochdale. Neil

0:29:100:29:15

Warnock thinks he's diagnosed the

problem with his form, he's actually

0:29:150:29:19

an asthmatic and has been given the

wrong medication lately.

Looks like

0:29:190:29:26

he might be on the right one with

that run!

Company mac.

0:29:260:29:31

Fernandinho.

0:29:350:29:36

Sterling has gone down the middle,

Bernardo Silva with the flick but

0:29:410:29:47

into the gloves of Neil Etheridge.

This is where Manchester City are so

0:29:470:29:53

clever, they always manage to get

some be free in midfield and in

0:29:530:29:56

space, on that occasion it was

Fernandinho and all of a sudden

0:29:560:30:00

Cardiff City players are running

back towards the own goal.

Etheridge

0:30:000:30:05

started as a Chelsea Junior then

joined Fulham. A number of stories

0:30:050:30:10

like that through this Cardiff team,

no disrespect to them but you look

0:30:100:30:14

at the names on the team sheet and

you see them third place in the

0:30:140:30:17

Championship and you realise what a

top job Neil Warnock is doing.

It's

0:30:170:30:22

like ugly ducklings isn't it?

0:30:220:30:23

Kompany able to slow it down. Kyle

Walker. They are going to do is stop

0:30:290:30:37

for a moment because there is

another ball on the field. Lee Mason

0:30:370:30:45

had seen it. Is Claudio Bravo go to

pop it?

0:30:450:30:55

pop it? What a tease!

Just looking

at Joe Ralls in the middle of

0:30:560:31:03

midfield for Cardiff, he has been

designated on Kevin De Bruyne watch.

0:31:030:31:10

Joe Ralls grew up a Manchester

United van, he would enjoy a win

0:31:100:31:14

here if Cardiff could get one. --

fan. Nicolas Otamendi, he was come

0:31:140:31:23

on in leaps and bounds and he was

not that bad before but he has

0:31:230:31:26

reached new levels this season.

Claudio Bravo.

0:31:260:31:33

Sane is another who has taken his

game to new, dizzying heights.

0:31:360:31:41

Danilo. Mostly collected by Gundogan

and smartly saved by Etheridge. It

0:31:410:31:49

was straight at him. Gundogan again.

Down under the challenge of Ralls

0:31:490:31:55

and it will be a Manchester City

free kick right on the edge of the

0:31:550:31:58

box.

It was a poor tackle. He was

fortunate he was not part of a yacht

0:31:580:32:03

inside the 18-yard box. The break

was lightning quick -- not half a

0:32:030:32:08

yard.

There is a problem for Ilkay

Gundogan, he has stayed down after

0:32:080:32:15

that challenge.

He kicked the back

of the Cardiff player's foot as much

0:32:150:32:24

as anything.

Ilkay Gundogan is the

player who was out for the best part

0:32:240:32:32

of a year after injuring his

cruciate in December of last season

0:32:320:32:35

and did not make his comeback until

well into the autumn this season so

0:32:350:32:40

already Sergio Aguero is going to

have dabbed a jog up and down the

0:32:400:32:44

touchline to get warm if needed. And

before this happened to Gundogan,

0:32:440:32:51

this was the chance that City

created.

The awareness from all of

0:32:510:32:56

the players is brilliant, they take

the ball quickly and in their stride

0:32:560:33:02

so the defender has no chance of

stopping cube. It was not a great

0:33:020:33:06

strike -- stopping you.

Let's see if

we can identify what Gundogan has

0:33:060:33:14

done.

0:33:140:33:19

done. You wonder why Ralls was not

hurt also looking at it.

I think it

0:33:190:33:24

might be his ankle. Thankfully not

his knee.

0:33:240:33:35

his knee.

A player who has had a

serious injury such as that supper

0:33:350:33:39

by Gundogan, and a few things before

that as well, it is no surprise that

0:33:390:33:44

he takes it carefully -- suffered by

Gundogan. What a fantastic player to

0:33:440:33:50

have available.

0:33:500:33:54

A few bodies to get it through and

De Bruyne has done! How clever was

0:33:570:34:05

that?! Brilliantly thought out.

Kevin De Bruyne scores for

0:34:050:34:13

Manchester City in the eighth minute

of the match.

0:34:130:34:19

of the match. And nobody in the

Cardiff City wall or the goal or the

0:34:200:34:26

Stadium was expecting to do that.

And I would think as well for the

0:34:260:34:31

game that the magic city players

would have that information about

0:34:310:34:35

the Cardiff wall which was that they

all jumped.

0:34:350:34:42

all jumped. It looks so simple.

For

it to be a brilliant free kick they

0:34:420:34:50

don't always had to bend high into

the top corner.

No. Coutinho was

0:34:500:34:57

good at scoring those particular

goals as well.

Kevin De Bruyne

0:34:570:35:02

reaches double figures for goals

this season, he is up to ten. And

0:35:020:35:09

Neil Warnock's team have to come

onto Manchester City a bit more now.

0:35:090:35:13

But maybe not straightaway, you

don't want to go two down.

Similar

0:35:130:35:20

to Peterborough against Leicester

City earlier yesterday.

0:35:200:35:26

City earlier yesterday. Just behind

Gundogan who is patched up and OK to

0:35:290:35:34

go on.

Just as well the ball from De

Bruyne was not that good because

0:35:340:35:38

City were away.

0:35:380:35:43

One thing we have not discussed,

were Cardiff unlucky to have the

0:35:480:35:53

free kick given against them?

I

don't think so.

0:35:530:36:04

don't think so.

Grujic and

Mendez-Laing. The flag is up against

0:36:040:36:06

Kenneth Zohore, the great big Dane.

Another one of the City players has

0:36:060:36:17

gone down as well now. Otamendi.

0:36:170:36:24

A problem with the left arm for the

Argentinian.

0:36:300:36:37

Otamendi can certainly continue to

move all right.

0:36:450:36:56

Walker to assist Sterling and De

Bruyne and his pull-back. Away by

0:37:000:37:06

Ralls.

0:37:060:37:11

Ralls. You can hear what the Cardiff

crowd think about that, Kenneth

0:37:120:37:16

Zohore penalised for easing away

Vincent Kompany.

He knew, didn't he?

0:37:160:37:22

The look of guilt!

0:37:220:37:32

Walker. He can't get it passed

Ecuele Manga.

What a ball from De

0:37:340:37:46

Bruyne, sensational.

Cardiff are

being overrun here. Back with

0:37:460:37:50

Claudio Bravo. It was Junior Hoilett

who found himself back in the

0:37:500:37:58

left-back position and completely

exposed.

De Bruyne picked it up in

0:37:580:38:03

the right back position for

Manchester City and Ralls, who we

0:38:030:38:08

said was designated to mark him, is

not quite sure what to do now.

0:38:080:38:16

not quite sure what to do now.

The

point again in that advanced

0:38:180:38:19

right-back role for now. -- De

Bruyne.

0:38:190:38:26

I am told by regular Cardiff watches

that they just go with Manga so we

0:38:300:38:39

will as well. Sane made a dark

income Richards followed him but

0:38:390:38:47

passed on duty to Morrison but

meanwhile Fernandinho through the

0:38:470:38:51

middle, Richards gets enough on that

away from De Bruyne.

Again, they get

0:38:510:38:57

somebody spare every single time.

Hoilett with the block.

0:38:570:39:09

Hoilett with the block. There was a

lot of talk in the week leading up

0:39:110:39:14

to this game, when the upset is

being built up, about Manchester

0:39:140:39:20

City not being used to facing a team

of Cardiff's style but you can

0:39:200:39:23

reverse that.

And the other thing

is, Cardiff need the ball. The

0:39:230:39:30

problem with Manchester City, they

occasionally loan it to you.

0:39:300:39:36

Gundogan exchanging neatly with

Sterling but not that time. What can

0:39:360:39:42

Cardiff do with the ball? It was

just held on to a little too long by

0:39:420:39:49

Grujic.

And who pinched it off him?

De Bruyne. He is honoured again and

0:39:490:39:55

that is Danilo who is blocked by

Morrison and a free kick to

0:39:550:39:59

Manchester City.

I think that should

be a booking. He has completely

0:39:590:40:04

taken the player out. No intention

of running for it.

0:40:040:40:15

De Bruyne is on the ball again and

you would think this would favour

0:40:200:40:24

delivery but I'm not so short with

the way he is retreating.

I don't

0:40:240:40:28

think the wall will be jumping.

De

Bruyne does lift it in. Mendez-Laing

0:40:280:40:37

missed the first, and the second and

it will be a Manchester City corner.

0:40:370:40:44

A swing and a miss.

0:40:440:40:53

Sane's corner. Gundogan has gone

near. And he did not do anything

0:40:550:41:03

more with it than that.

It had a bit

too much on it. He is moving OK

0:41:030:41:11

which is obviously good news. Was he

that bad at Chelsea?

That was the

0:41:110:41:21

fowl on Gundogan. And this was De

Bruyne's bit of brilliance, it

0:41:210:41:31

really is.

What is a bit unusual,

for six opposition players to be in

0:41:310:41:35

the war and all of them to remember

to jump! You normally get one that

0:41:350:41:39

doesn't.

Something from distant and

had that cross the line? The Cardiff

0:41:390:41:49

City fans thought it had but the

assistant referee, who was not

0:41:490:41:52

exactly on the line, Simon Long,

kept his flag down.

I did not think

0:41:520:41:57

it crossed the line.

0:41:570:42:03

it crossed the line.

Mendez-Laing,

that has got Cardiff going and they

0:42:040:42:06

have a throw in courtesy of Danilo.

0:42:060:42:10

Richard with the throw. -- Richards.

This is akin to turning up the

0:42:180:42:26

volume from six up to ten all of a

sudden. Cardiff trying to keep

0:42:260:42:33

pressing. Richards. Mendez-Laing.

Nice bit of footwork. He had two to

0:42:330:42:44

beat. Danilo decisively in. A little

bit of Cardiff pressure. It looks

0:42:440:42:55

like Sean Morrison is going to leave

it to Callum Paterson.

Every City

0:42:550:43:01

player back, not even one left

upfront.

This worked well for

0:43:010:43:08

Newport against Spurs yesterday. It

caused them all sorts of problems

0:43:080:43:11

and it goes from backers and not

away, Hoilett turning, that is

0:43:110:43:17

Kenneth Zohore and it almost came to

Morrison. Otamendi got it away.

0:43:170:43:24

Cleared by Danilo and the break is

on with Sane. Progress halted. And

0:43:240:43:34

now a free kick for Cardiff.

I'm not

sure. I think it might have been the

0:43:340:43:39

first fowl from the Cardiff player.

-- the first foul.

0:43:390:43:50

They are bouncing.

Literally.

Manga

to lift it forward. Look how high

0:44:000:44:11

City are defending, Guardiola made

mention of it in the build-up. Then

0:44:110:44:17

it does well, really well! --

Bennet. Paterson was not far away

0:44:170:44:25

and Mendez-Laing could not get onto

it behind him.

Great play and a

0:44:250:44:30

great cross. One touch and in you

go.

0:44:300:44:37

go. Just arching away from bravo.

He

just needed a little more spring in

0:44:380:44:47

his take-off.

And I think if

Mendez-Laing had gambled a bit he

0:44:470:44:51

might have been on the end of it.

Won by Gundogan and this is Bernardo

0:44:510:44:57

Silva.

0:44:570:44:59

Silva is available again but this is

De Bruyne who is always available.

0:45:030:45:10

Sterling.

0:45:100:45:13

De Bruyne. A little bit of fortune

for Sterling, Sane takes it up.

0:45:150:45:25

Sane, plenty of time and room for

him. Fernandinho.

0:45:320:45:38

The home fans applauding the fact

that they have pressed Manchester

0:45:470:45:51

City all the way back to their

keeper.

The fact that it is in the

0:45:510:45:54

other half.

Grujic collected it but

not for long. Gundogan. Positive,

0:45:540:46:06

driving run and this is Bernardo

Silva. And Danilo. It could not

0:46:060:46:13

stick with Paterson and this is De

Bruyne.

0:46:130:46:18

Walker. Stopped by Hoilett and he is

fouled by Kyle Walker. It is Junior

0:46:180:46:30

Hoilett who caused the problem for

Claudio Bravo.

0:46:300:46:37

Claudio Bravo.

Was he then looking

to play it straightaway? It was a

0:46:370:46:42

little bit.

0:46:420:46:47

little bit.

He didn't half get

fortunate.

A bit patter cake, patter

0:46:470:46:55

cake Baker's man.

He has been a star

in the Carabao Cup this season than

0:46:550:47:04

in the penalty shoot outs against

Wolves and Leicester.

0:47:040:47:14

Etheridge up and away. Danilo.

0:47:200:47:28

Safely back to Etheridge again.

0:47:330:47:38

Otamendi, stayed in the air a long

time, he thought he might have been

0:47:460:47:49

fouled by Paterson who has it now.

Mendez-Laing is caught napping.

0:47:490:47:58

Sane.

0:47:580:48:03

Sane. Gundogan. The Cardiff crowd,

you can hear what they think about

0:48:030:48:12

that, they were not happy that

nobody was getting anywhere near

0:48:120:48:16

Ilkay Gundogan in possession.

They

are just giving the ball back to

0:48:160:48:21

City. Not a good idea.

Kompany.

0:48:210:48:30

City. Not a good idea.

Kompany.

We

expected that Raheem Sterling would

0:48:310:48:35

play through the middle but Bernardo

Silva seems to be playing more there

0:48:350:48:39

than any of the City players.

It is

pretty much 4-1-5, isn't it?

Good

0:48:390:48:51

work ethic and you just join in and

go and play.

0:48:510:48:58

Again, they always get somebody

free. The whole prep premise is you

0:49:130:49:20

will get one man over at some stage.

Of those Sane. Sterling is a free at

0:49:200:49:27

the moment right edge, Sane is not

looking. Grujic to Mendez-Laing.

0:49:270:49:36

Otamendi, I say all the way back to

Claudio Bravo, it is not all the

0:49:360:49:40

way, is it?

No. It just keeps coming

back, doesn't it?

0:49:400:49:49

Kyle Walker had a spell playing for

Neil Warnock at QPR earlier in his

0:49:580:50:03

career. A loan spell at Loftus Road.

Gundogan is free again to collect.

0:50:030:50:12

De Bruyne. Manga get it away from

Sane and get it up to ten to Zohore

0:50:150:50:26

-- up to Kenneth Zohore. He has done

pretty well so far. But only so far.

0:50:260:50:35

You knew exactly where he was going,

left foot all the time.

Look at this

0:50:350:50:41

on the right, Manchester City have

an overload with the Bernardo Silva.

0:50:410:50:44

And his shot! It is not go to count.

The flag is up. Manchester City's

0:50:440:50:53

celebrations will be cut short here.

Interesting to see what that is for.

0:50:530:50:59

Lee Mason does not know because he's

going to have a word.

Read my lips,

0:50:590:51:04

no way.

0:51:040:51:09

no way.

It was a great strike from

Bernardo Silva. Pep Guardiola does

0:51:100:51:14

not understand why it has been ruled

out. In fact, it has not been ruled

0:51:140:51:18

out! Lee Mason has pointed to the

centre circle and Manchester City

0:51:180:51:25

have a 2-goal lead.

You don't think

that the assistant thought that Sane

0:51:250:51:30

got the smallest of touches on the

way? Otherwise I can't understand.

0:51:300:51:37

If he had adjudged him to be

slightly offside he must have

0:51:370:51:40

thought he must have been near the

line of sight. But I don't think

0:51:400:51:46

anything would have aided Neil

Etheridge in trying to save that

0:51:460:51:49

one, it was some shot from Bernardo

Silva and it is a shot that has made

0:51:490:51:54

it... Hang on, what is happening

here? They have restarted again but

0:51:540:51:58

not from the centre circle.

0:51:580:52:05

not from the centre circle. Pep

Guardiola is absolutely apoplectic.

0:52:050:52:09

And Kevin De Bruyne is on the move

and it remains 1-0 to Manchester

0:52:090:52:13

City but they have a free kick now

so offside was given against Leroy

0:52:130:52:17

Sane. VAR, we don't have it today.

The date you want it, you don't have

0:52:170:52:24

it.

0:52:240:52:29

it. Quelle surprise. So are we

saying that Sane was in the path of

0:52:340:52:37

the ball and the goalkeeper could

not see it?

They are saying he was

0:52:370:52:41

active.

That is a very strange

decision.

I thought Lee Mason had

0:52:410:52:49

pointed to the centre circle.

I

think everybody in the ground

0:52:490:52:54

thought he was pointing to the

centre circle.

The Manchester City

0:52:540:53:01

players celebrated, two or three

started punching the air. What is

0:53:010:53:07

happening now? Lee Mason is going to

cost you have a word I think with

0:53:070:53:13

Pep Guardiola who might be ordered

from the bench. He has been

0:53:130:53:18

constantly in the ear of Rob Jones,

the fourth official.

I'm pretty sure

0:53:180:53:24

he will be saying, what actually was

it disallowed for? Not so much, sits

0:53:240:53:30

down, you have been a nuisance. He

is remonstrating with the fourth

0:53:300:53:35

official saying, can somebody

explain to me?

Rob Jones is doing

0:53:350:53:44

his best to explain it and in the

meantime Manchester City have a free

0:53:440:53:48

kick in a position A again with

Gundogan. A great effort but just a

0:53:480:53:52

little too high.

0:53:520:53:54

Here we go, Bernardo Silva with a

free run to the edge of the box, he

0:54:020:54:06

checks and shoots and Izzy offside?

I don't think he is. -- is he

0:54:060:54:14

offside. He was ruled to have been

offside and upset Neil Etheridge's

0:54:140:54:20

in his attempts to save it. Maybe

you could see that but it is a big

0:54:200:54:24

maybe and I don't think he was

offside anyway.

Absolutely not. The

0:54:240:54:29

game has gone.

0:54:290:54:35

game has gone.

Just for

clarification, it remains Cardiff

0:54:350:54:39

City 0- one Manchester City.

Are we

sure?

We are sure.

0:54:390:54:43

That was a Miss Q by Bennett. --

miscue.

The other thing about the

0:54:520:55:04

decision, it was given by the

assistant on the far side. How can

0:55:040:55:10

he actually think that Sane is in

the way? He is only seeing it side

0:55:100:55:14

on.

You can see is drawing the line

to say offside. Here is De Bruyne.

0:55:140:55:23

Sterling. Danilo is forward in the

box but it is Manga who touches it

0:55:230:55:31

away as far as De Bruyne. Walker.

0:55:310:55:37

Grujic with the header. Gundogan,

Sterling. His shot is high.

0:55:450:55:59

Sterling. His shot is high. It took

a touch and it will be a Manchester

0:55:590:56:01

City corner.

Just a delight to watch

them when they all go forward. The

0:56:010:56:09

movement and the awareness and pace

and ability, the dribbling skills

0:56:090:56:14

etc.

We are having all the fun of

the fair with refereeing decisions

0:56:140:56:21

this weekend, whether a video

refereeing system is in use or not.

0:56:210:56:27

I have the say, in terms of VAR,

they got all of the decisions right

0:56:270:56:32

which is a start.

They work in

progress and it is a trial basis is

0:56:320:56:36

eventually. -- it is a work in

progress. It begs the question, why

0:56:360:56:43

is it not being trialled today and

in the Chelsea and Newcastle game?

0:56:430:56:49

Surely the more you trial at the

more you get used to it.

0:56:490:56:55

From Cardiff City's point of view,

at least it is only still one nil

0:57:160:57:19

-- are still only 1-0.

0:57:220:57:25

Sterling. Calmly done by Morrison.

He has got it through to Kenneth

0:57:280:57:37

Zohore. Mendez-Laing on the move,

Paterson and Grujic as well. And

0:57:370:57:44

Kompany has made that look simple.

Fernandinho was caught a little slow

0:57:440:57:49

but he was fouled by Mendez-Laing

and that will be a free kick to

0:57:490:57:53

Manchester City and Lee Mason wants

a word with the Cardiff winger.

0:57:530:57:58

Kompany just read it in the first

instance. Just experienced.

0:57:580:58:05

instance. Just experienced. It is a

foul but not a particularly bad

0:58:080:58:10

challenge.

Just a word for

Mendez-Laing, no card.

0:58:100:58:22

All is calm again but brooding.

I

think the head is on fire.

0:58:220:58:35

Strange to see him as the karma of

the two men in the technical areas.

0:58:400:58:44

-- the more calm.

0:58:440:58:48

He is probably worried about what to

say at half-time I would have

0:58:530:58:55

thought.

Bernardo Silva.

0:58:550:59:00

Walker

0:59:020:59:04

Walker. Silva. Sane, De Bruyne.

0:59:040:59:14

Kenneth Zohore did well against

Otamendi. And he wins round two but

0:59:210:59:26

it will be a Cardiff throw in.

He

will have to do a lot of that today,

0:59:260:59:31

trying to hold the ball up and fight

people off and bring the midfielder

0:59:310:59:34

's cup and alongside him.

He has

gone six games since he last scored.

0:59:340:59:43

His game is about more than simply

putting it into the back of the net.

0:59:430:59:49

He got two against Leeds in

September.

0:59:490:59:59

Manchester City throw.

1:00:081:00:13

Cardiff's last home game in the

third round as 0-0 against

1:00:201:00:24

Mansfield.

1:00:241:00:29

Mansfield.

It is great that it is

full.

Fernandinho asking a bit too

1:00:291:00:38

much of Raheem

1:00:381:00:49

Sterling.

1:00:501:00:57

I don't think any of those numbers

come as any great surprise at this

1:01:021:01:05

stage in the game.

1:01:051:01:11

stage in the game. Kompany. Always

surprised by how much room and time

1:01:121:01:17

on the ball the Manchester City

players are being given.

Yeah, well,

1:01:171:01:23

what do you do is the opposition?

That is the thing. They keep

1:01:231:01:26

managing to be able to get a free

player, Manchester City.

1:01:261:01:34

Zohore challenged by Kompany,

Cardiff's ball. He looks fit. But we

1:01:451:01:49

have said that before.

I hope yes.

He deserves to be.

You have to watch

1:01:491:01:57

the Manchester City captain on a

game by game basis. The cult Darlow

1:01:571:02:01

problem. Well, the chief problem. --

the cabs are the problem -- the

1:02:011:02:13

calves are the problem, well, the

chief problem. It's a throw to the

1:02:131:02:20

City in fuchsia.

The other thing is

trying to press City as high as

1:02:201:02:29

possible, because they are also

comfortable on the ball they will

1:02:291:02:32

kill you with one pass all the time.

De Bruyne are all on his own on the

1:02:321:02:39

left.

1:02:391:02:41

Bernardo Silva. It's a great ball in

and its 2-0, Raheem Sterling heading

1:02:481:02:53

it in. What a cross from Bernardo

Silva. Onto the head of the smallest

1:02:531:03:03

player on the field.

Lotions and

potions of space and time. The ball

1:03:031:03:11

is played so early and pace, its me

to look so simple. It really is a

1:03:111:03:21

footballing lesson. No disrespect to

Cardiff, teams are struggling to

1:03:211:03:25

cope with this. In it goes, thank

you. Isn't football supposed to be

1:03:251:03:31

simple? Manchester City are making

it look that way.

Raheem Sterling

1:03:311:03:38

with his 19th of the season, he does

not score many this way. Rarely does

1:03:381:03:45

he get that sort of freedom in the

penalty area.

The two centre-backs,

1:03:451:03:53

Ecuele Manga and Morrison, they are

used to picking up people in the

1:03:531:03:58

Championship, people being up

against them, stopping them, letting

1:03:581:04:01

them to west, but when they have

nobody to pick players are running

1:04:011:04:04

inside and around them it's so

different and so difficult.

That one

1:04:041:04:10

did count.

Are we sure?!

1:04:101:04:14

That might douse a bit of Pep 's

anger.

1:04:211:04:28

anger.

He's on his usual quest for

perfection.

1:04:291:04:35

perfection. Neil Warnock sing this

week how good it is to have a game

1:04:371:04:41

like this, a full house good for

everyone connected to the club, to

1:04:411:04:46

see the razzmatazz, for the players

to see the level they hope to be

1:04:461:04:49

competing at next season. The flag

is up against Bernardo Silva, free

1:04:491:04:55

kick for Cardiff.

Just looked for a

split second that Sane would get

1:04:551:04:59

played in.

1:04:591:05:09

Just keeps appearing everywhere

doesn't he?

Good closing from Joe

1:05:091:05:16

Ralls, toilet. -- Hoilett. Walker

has just beaten him to that and the

1:05:161:05:26

fact that Ralls caught him that

means it's a free kick to Manchester

1:05:261:05:29

City rather than a court -- rather

than a corner for Cardiff City.

1:05:291:05:45

I think he's given up with De

Bruyne.

The flag is up again, this

1:05:451:05:55

time Sane. Not just Manchester City

defending with the high line.

1:05:551:06:07

Kompany.

1:06:081:06:10

Sterling picking up the ball in that

area.

1:06:291:06:33

Walking pace. A stroll in the park.

It's just a masterclass isn't it?

1:06:391:06:48

And there is no arrogance about it

either. No one player wants to take

1:06:481:06:53

all the glory, everyone plays for

each other.

1:06:531:06:56

Just giving themselves a breather at

the moment, Manchester City. But so

1:07:171:07:22

are Cardiff City's players.

Fernandinho has lost the ball.

1:07:221:07:28

Morrison. One of the big diagonals

we were told would come at some rate

1:07:281:07:37

for Cardiff. No Hoilett. Gundogan.

Manchester City break. Sterling. De

1:07:371:07:47

Bruyne.

1:07:471:07:52

Bruyne. Sane to the left, Bernardo

Silva to the right. Here is Sane.

1:07:521:07:56

Danilo. Was that when just a bit

overdone?

Was at a cross or a shot?

1:07:561:08:06

Either or the break again was great.

1:08:061:08:15

Bluebirds 0- two blue moon. I think

it is there.

1:08:241:08:31

it is there.

It's difficult when

your team gets taken apart but

1:08:331:08:36

sometimes you just had to stand up

and applaud.

Walker has their head

1:08:361:08:41

start, not that he needed it. Bravo.

1:08:411:08:45

Out for a Cardiff throw. Two and a

half minutes to go until we reach

1:08:531:09:01

45. Do Cardiff throw a little bit

more at Manchester City now?

The

1:09:011:09:07

need to get the ball first.

1:09:071:09:13

need to get the ball first.

It's

going to be a Manchester City

1:09:161:09:18

goalkick.

1:09:181:09:23

A wry grimace. Kevin Blackwell, his

long-time assistant and former

1:09:231:09:31

goalkeeper. Scarbrough way back when

early on Neil Warnock's managerial

1:09:311:09:37

career.

1:09:371:09:42

career. And the together at

Huddersfield.

1:09:431:09:45

Sterling nipped by Joe Ralls. Zohore

to Hoilett. Cardiff throw.

You could

1:10:321:10:42

see how quick Sterling was trying to

get the ball back after giving it

1:10:421:10:45

away.

That is another feature of

Manchester City's play. The Cardiff

1:10:451:10:51

City fans trying to show a bit of

resistance in the build-up to the

1:10:511:10:54

half-time interval. Callum

Paterson's throw could bring reward.

1:10:541:11:03

Leroy Sane could run past all the

mess he wants and he's doing it,

1:11:121:11:15

he's taken out by Bennett just as

he's about to get into the box.

1:11:151:11:21

Yellow card for Joe Bennett. Did he

just save a goal?

Leroy Sane was

1:11:211:11:29

starting to veer across the box

wasn't he? One or two people

1:11:291:11:33

shouting for a red card. He was

going away towards the corner of the

1:11:331:11:36

area.

It was the most cynical of

challenges. Looks where it starts,

1:11:361:11:43

where Sane takes it up. The

awareness from De Bruyne, on you go.

1:11:431:11:53

I tell you what, that is a red card.

It is, looking at it. I thought he

1:11:541:12:00

just flicked the leg.

It was a bit

more than a trip to stop him

1:12:001:12:07

running.

It was.

1:12:071:12:12

running.

It was.

Sane is OK.

He is

and he is fortunate.

1:12:131:12:21

Obviously the referee never saw it.

His studs plaited into him.

1:12:211:12:31

De Bruyne will try to punish them,

Bernardo Silva tries and cancer. --

1:12:321:12:39

and cannot.

1:12:391:12:42

We've already played a minute and a

half of three additional first-half

1:13:021:13:08

minutes most of those due to the

wars it wasn't that second

1:13:081:13:12

Manchester goal which wasn't,

ultimately. And maybe it should have

1:13:121:13:18

been.

1:13:181:13:23

Half-time at the Cardiff City

Stadium. Manchester City have

1:14:301:14:35

cruised the first 45 minutes. Just

the one shot from Junior Hoilett

1:14:351:14:39

which almost caught Claudio Bravo

out but from the moment Kevin De

1:14:391:14:43

Bruyne with a brilliant bit of

thinking gave Manchester City the

1:14:431:14:45

lead they have been in total

control. Sterling made two and at

1:14:451:14:50

half-time it is Cardiff City 0- two

Manchester City. STUDIO: Exhibition

1:14:501:15:01

stuff really once

1:15:011:15:02

Manchester City. STUDIO: Exhibition

stuff really once again from

1:15:021:15:03

Manchester City, they make the game

looked remarkably simple.

They have

1:15:031:15:07

been superb. From the Cardiff point

of view you are hoping to have a

1:15:071:15:12

chance, two or three of the

Manchester City players have an off

1:15:121:15:14

day, they are not that it, but there

is no such thing. They are

1:15:141:15:21

committed, they are doing all the

ugly side of the game, running but

1:15:211:15:24

as well as you said, some of the

stuff they are playing a

1:15:241:15:28

sensational. Very good to watch.

Extraordinarily consistent

1:15:281:15:32

performances.

Yeah, I think the

early fright from Mendez-Laing, they

1:15:321:15:38

have notified that threat and been

very professional.

As we fear before

1:15:381:15:43

the game Cardiff very much chasing

shadows. They had a chance but

1:15:431:15:48

didn't take it.

As good as

Manchester City have been I have

1:15:481:15:53

been disappointed with Manchester

Cardiff tactically, trying to go

1:15:531:16:00

man-to-man, Callum Paterson trying

to mark Fernandinho, Joe Bennett

1:16:001:16:06

trying to Mark Sterling. They would

be

1:16:061:16:12

they have shown glimpses on the

counterattack, Cardiff.

This could

1:16:181:16:23

be three, four, five, the way it's

going.

It certainly could, very

1:16:231:16:26

clever opening

1:16:261:16:27

going.

It certainly could, very

clever opening goal from De Bruyne,

1:16:271:16:29

not the first time we've seen him do

it either.

Top players think

1:16:291:16:34

differently, they find a way and do

different things. That is class. As

1:16:341:16:39

simple as it looks to think that far

ahead and have that picture in your

1:16:391:16:43

head already, to get it on target

like he has done, he knows he's

1:16:431:16:47

doing it. Great execution.

Do you

think he counts down until they

1:16:471:16:53

jump?

We have seen it from him

before. Bournemouth.

1:16:531:16:57

jump?

We have seen it from him

before. Bournemouth. 2016. Very,

1:16:571:17:00

very clever.

As for the second goal,

Raheem Sterling header on the edge

1:17:001:17:06

of the

1:17:061:17:06

Raheem Sterling header on the edge

of the six yard box, defensively

1:17:061:17:09

Cardiff will be not very happy with

that.

I don't think anyone was

1:17:091:17:13

expecting him to score a header so

freely in the six yard box. In the

1:17:131:17:17

build-up to the goal they are so

disjointed, no communication, nobody

1:17:171:17:21

taking leadership. It's a great ball

in from Bernardo Silva but Raheem

1:17:211:17:26

Sterling should not be free, that

free inside the six box.

What a ball

1:17:261:17:32

that is. Brilliant ball. Pace and

precision. Just say get on the end

1:17:321:17:37

of it and he did. He did it down,

very good finish. First header in

1:17:371:17:42

two years I think.

1:17:421:17:42

very good finish. First header in

two years I think. Very good.

He

1:17:421:17:45

does not get many. Looking at the

Cardiff opportunities,

1:17:451:17:50

does not get many. Looking at the

Cardiff opportunities, Junior

1:17:501:17:50

Hoilett with a long-range effort

which Claudio Bravo got away with I

1:17:501:17:53

think.

I thought this one was in,

picking up the ball in the pocket,

1:17:531:18:00

Claudio Bravo should deal with that

comfortable Labour tends to give you

1:18:001:18:03

a chance. Decent volley.

Good

recovery. Goalline technology we do

1:18:031:18:13

have for the FA Cup, but no Video

Assistant Referee which we might

1:18:131:18:17

come to in a moment when we look at

Manchester City's disallowed goal.

1:18:171:18:22

come to in a moment when we look at

Manchester City's disallowed goal.

1:18:221:18:24

Aside from that, Cardiff, one or two

opportunities. Early on they had a

1:18:241:18:28

breakaway.

1:18:281:18:28

opportunities. Early on they had a

breakaway.

His pace took them by

1:18:281:18:32

surprise.

It is a high line as well

from City.

It would not matter if

1:18:321:18:39

they were deeper, they are still

getting exposed. It's just a poor

1:18:391:18:43

decision at the end.

He's just gone

the wrong way.

It's a simple ball

1:18:431:18:49

across into the second section are

box and we expected one or two of

1:18:491:18:53

these, long throws, bit of a

scramble. But that is what they have

1:18:531:19:02

offered, it's another brilliant ball

in. Just a couple of inches.

Plain

1:19:021:19:09

Manchester City you have to make

something like this happen.

1:19:091:19:11

Manchester City you have to make

something like this happen.

To be

1:19:111:19:12

fair they have got bodies into the

box, Paterson getting licence but it

1:19:121:19:19

killed them defensively because he's

not coming back and helping the men

1:19:191:19:23

behind. They have to try to go for

it now and it plays into Manchester

1:19:231:19:26

City's hands.

1:19:261:19:28

it now and it plays into Manchester

City's hands.

It could have been

1:19:281:19:29

worse had it not been for a

disallowed goal. What did you make

1:19:291:19:33

of this? Offside, standing in front

of the goalkeeper but the fact is he

1:19:331:19:38

was not.

It's a hell of a strike.

Once he cut inside you know what

1:19:381:19:45

he's going to do. But try to stop

him is a heck different matter. Not

1:19:451:19:49

offside at all. You cannot be

interfering with play. The referee

1:19:491:19:55

goes to him.

They have do have a

discussion because the referee will

1:19:551:20:01

have asked if he was offside. The

referee has to decide if he was in

1:20:011:20:04

line with the goalkeeper I presume.

Yeah but as

1:20:041:20:07

line with the goalkeeper I presume.

Yeah but as I saw he's not.

Pep

1:20:071:20:12

cannot quite understand why and he

will be less understanding when he

1:20:121:20:15

sees that. I was going to ask you

about VAR, you have been kind of

1:20:151:20:20

negative.

That it is perfect, that

is fact, you argue that, it's not an

1:20:201:20:27

opinion so you cannot argue. In that

situation I am all for it.

What

1:20:271:20:32

opinion so you cannot argue. In that

situation I am all for it.

What

1:20:321:20:33

about VAR for this possible tackle

for a red card?

It was a naughty

1:20:331:20:39

one. The pace is incredible from

Sane, nobody can catch him. He goes

1:20:391:20:43

for the space. We saw it on the

replay, very difficult for the

1:20:431:20:50

officials to pick up, but when we

see it close up its naughty and

1:20:501:20:54

nasty, it is high.

That is VAR,

fact, red card.

1:20:541:20:59

nasty, it is high.

That is VAR,

fact, red card. Bull yeah, no need

1:20:591:21:01

to go in with that force. It was a

bad one.

Straight red card. No place

1:21:011:21:11

for tackles like that. Running at

full pace. Really poor. I would be

1:21:111:21:16

surprised if Sane comes out, looked

like he might have rolled his ankle.

1:21:161:21:20

We heard one or two of Neil

Warnock's team talks, I don't know

1:21:201:21:25

what you will be seeing him there,

do you go and try to score or take

1:21:251:21:30

your medicine?

Just try to win the

second half, try and keep a clean

1:21:301:21:36

sheet and get a goal. He's not going

to go and hear drier the players.

1:21:361:21:40

Manchester City have been fantastic.

Just try to win the second half,

1:21:401:21:47

give the crowd something to shout

about.

You cannot go and give the

1:21:471:21:51

players are right telling off

because they are playing against

1:21:511:21:54

much better players. You just have

to try to stick together or it could

1:21:541:21:57

turn out embarrassing.

Try to

salvage some pride. One other FA Cup

1:21:571:22:03

tie earlier this afternoon which

Alan was watching very carefully,

1:22:031:22:07

Newcastle away to Chelsea.

1:22:071:22:14

COMMENTATOR: Pedro. That's a much

better ball. Here is it and Hazard,

1:22:141:22:22

Batshuayi square, 1-0. Batshuayi.

It's all about the quality of the

1:22:221:22:31

pass which started the move from

page or two Hazard -- from Pedro, to

1:22:311:22:39

Hazard. Little touch to Batshuayi

who simply could not miss. Pedro

1:22:391:22:46

taking it to Batshuayi. Pedro two

Hazard, Batshuayi in a good

1:22:461:22:52

position. Hazard picks out as you

would expect, that's a really good

1:22:521:22:57

block until it bounces into the back

of the net. Jamaal Lascelles made

1:22:571:23:05

the block but it ballooned up into

the corner of the Newcastle net and

1:23:051:23:09

it is 2-0.

1:23:091:23:14

Zappacosta.

1:23:141:23:22

N'Golo Kante. Zappacosta. Marcos

Alonso. Good save. Look at this.

1:23:221:23:36

It's a good stop, a magnificent

volley. Here is Zappacosta. Rudiger

1:23:361:23:41

has made a run ahead of him.

Batshuayi and Hazard lurking. Fairly

1:23:411:23:46

industrial challenge. Chelsea free

kick.

1:23:461:23:55

kick. Alonso. 3-0. He is so good at

that. Marcos Alonso strokes in his

1:23:571:24:06

seventh goal of the season. Seven

time FA Cup winners Chelsea are

1:24:061:24:13

through, six time FA Cup winners

Newcastle are out.

1:24:131:24:19

Can we move on?

LAUGHTER

Outplayed really?

Yes, Chelsea did

1:24:191:24:27

not have to play that well really,

Newcastle with a lack of firepower

1:24:271:24:31

which is why they are desperate to

bring in a forward in the next

1:24:311:24:34

couple of days. Not long left, need

to get one in now! Plenty more

1:24:341:24:39

football coming up on the BBC.

1:24:391:24:41

Gundogan down under the challenge,

it will be a Manchester City free

1:25:031:25:06

kick. De Bruyne, how clever was

that? From distance for Claudio

1:25:061:25:14

Bravo. The assistant referee kept

the flag down. The shot is not going

1:25:141:25:19

to count, the flag is up. It's a

great ball in, 2-0, Raheem Sterling

1:25:191:25:25

with the header.

1:25:251:25:27

Let's gets more reviews from pitch

side where Manish is with Cardiff's

1:25:311:25:35

hero from 1994. Nathan Blake.

Thank

you Gary, Nathan you produced that

1:25:351:25:45

moment of magic in 1994, can we see

something similar in the second

1:25:451:25:49

half, they have got their work cut

out against a City team in forbidden

1:25:491:25:54

or form.

I thought after the first

goal went in it was a case where

1:25:541:25:58

Cardiff would have to get the second

goal, they first but once the second

1:25:581:26:04

goal goes in for Manchester City

it's so difficult to get back. They

1:26:041:26:07

have to score the next goal, as

simple as that or it could run away

1:26:071:26:12

to three, four, five.

People will

look at the front three of Cardiff

1:26:121:26:17

but you think maybe the players I'm

should be working harder?

I think

1:26:171:26:24

they are isolated, especially Zohore

on the middle in his own. The uplink

1:26:241:26:29

so deep they are allowing Manchester

City to have the ball, they are not

1:26:291:26:32

pressing the ball. It's easier said

than done, seen better teams in

1:26:321:26:37

Cardiff trying the same technique

and get punished. It's a bit of a

1:26:371:26:42

Catch-22 at the moment, do you push

and push high and try to compress

1:26:421:26:47

Manchester City? But that what

Manchester City want.

What they want

1:26:471:26:50

to see in second half?

I want to see

them have a go. I want to see Joe

1:26:501:26:56

Ralls and the midfield, it's a big

day for Grujic, I want to see them

1:26:561:27:02

pushing further forward. It's the

rotation of Manchester City it's so

1:27:021:27:06

difficult to handle.

Do you think

the longer term view is creeping

1:27:061:27:10

into mind with Neil Warnock with

what's going on in the Championship?

1:27:101:27:12

I think so. If he had the choice he

would have brought a totally

1:27:121:27:20

different olive and out today but

because of the game, the history,

1:27:201:27:26

they are forced to play a strong

team. But they need to do more,

1:27:261:27:31

press up higher and you might as

well go out on your sword at three

1:27:311:27:34

or four rather than sitting back

because at the moment you're not

1:27:341:27:37

giving the City goal.

Great stuff,

thank you. The views of a card of

1:27:371:27:43

legend, Nathan Blake.

Thank you very

much. This Manchester City team, you

1:27:431:27:50

see them quite a lot, is there any

way you can compete against them in

1:27:501:27:54

this form?

It's very difficult.

Going to the Cardiff point of view,

1:27:541:27:59

they have been disciplined and how

they have gone about it but it's

1:27:591:28:03

naive to think you can match their

man for man, defensively anyway with

1:28:031:28:06

the pace they have upfront.

Do you

think sometimes you just have to go,

1:28:061:28:12

you give it your best and have pop,

but it's about the quality of the

1:28:121:28:16

players are Manchester City better

players?

They are and they are very

1:28:161:28:21

well drilled. You look at Cardiff

City, they are not used to playing

1:28:211:28:27

man-to-man every week, they have

been picking them off every time

1:28:271:28:32

they go forward, Manchester City.

Hopefully Cardiff can improve on the

1:28:321:28:35

second half.

That should cheer them

up, you can see Aguero loosening up

1:28:351:28:40

in the tunnel!

I think he's coming

on for Sane who has not recovered

1:28:401:28:45

from the nasty tackle.

Let's hope

it's nothing serious because it was

1:28:451:28:51

quite vicious. Couple of players

talking in the tunnel before they go

1:28:511:28:58

wide. They will be very confident of

adding to the tally I suspect in the

1:28:581:29:02

second half.

Knowing Sergio he will

want to score and he will get

1:29:021:29:08

opportunities. You will be more

central, he want about wide.

Vincent

1:29:081:29:15

Kompany coming out, you watch them

and just hope he gets through games

1:29:151:29:21

which is sad in itself.

He looks

like he's playing with a bit more

1:29:211:29:26

maturity and patience in his game.

He wasn't going into were previously

1:29:261:29:30

he was trying to win Britain much

every ball.

It's a good game for him

1:29:301:29:35

to come back in. He's not been asked

many questions and has probably been

1:29:351:29:41

75-80% which is good for him.

All

right, Aguero coming on, good time

1:29:411:29:46

to hand back to our commentators for

another 45 minutes of Manchester

1:29:461:29:55

City's exhilarating football, Mark

Lawrenson and Guy Mowbray.

1:29:551:29:57

COMMENTATOR: Sergio Aguero's

appearance means he now joins

1:30:011:30:07

Fernandinho as two who played the

last time magic as if you were here

1:30:071:30:11

at the end of August 2013 in the

last time hardware in the Premier

1:30:111:30:20

League. It finished as a 3-2 victory

for Cardiff which remains a

1:30:201:30:25

possibility today but it seems

highly unlikely and they must score

1:30:251:30:30

the next goal. It is Manchester City

who will kick-start the second half

1:30:301:30:37

with De Bruyne finding Kompany.

Instantly looking for Aguero.

1:30:371:30:47

Only given half a breather this

afternoon. They have a Premier

1:30:471:30:51

League game at home to West Brom

Jobim who are buoyant at the moment,

1:30:511:30:57

at home on Wednesday night -- West

Bromwich Albion.

1:30:571:31:02

He has hardly broken sweat in the

game thus far. Gundogan.

1:31:081:31:19

It is quiet around the stadium at

the start of the second half.

I

1:31:211:31:25

think the Cardiff fans are thinking,

have we made any changes? No. How

1:31:251:31:30

are we going to stop Manchester

City?

Walker gave them the ball.

1:31:301:31:38

Kompany prevent any further

ambitious thoughts from the home

1:31:381:31:40

team.

1:31:401:31:42

Maybe an extra central defender in

the Manchester City ranks by next

1:32:071:32:12

week with the deadline approaching

on Wednesday night and we understand

1:32:121:32:16

a deal is close for Aymeric Laporte

of Athletic Bilbao. They are also in

1:32:161:32:24

talks with Shakhtar Donetsk

midfielder Fred, the Brazilian.

Only

1:32:241:32:29

two?

1:32:291:32:30

Sterling. Morrison's header. Free

kick given against Gundogan.

1:32:361:32:52

kick given against Gundogan.

City

with Silva on the right, Aguero

1:32:521:32:56

through the middle and Sterling on

the left basically. At the moment.

1:32:561:33:04

Aguero has a goal per game record in

his FA Cup career, 16 in 16. 23 this

1:33:081:33:15

season in all competitions.

He is

just a goal machine.

1:33:151:33:26

Sterling. Danilo. Aguero. If that he

passes it to Bernardo Silva but one

1:33:271:33:42

pass too many and cleared by Manga.

Kenneth Zohore, holder of Otamendi

1:33:421:33:47

and quick enough to slip past

Gundogan. Hoilett and Kenneth

1:33:471:33:51

Zohore. It was a good first touch

but the pass was nowhere near close

1:33:511:33:59

enough to Paterson.

And look who is

right back for Manchester city,

1:33:591:34:04

Kevin De Bruyne. -- Manchester City.

1:34:041:34:10

Cardiff can try to push on and push

up but Manchester City will just

1:34:201:34:25

play through you, they are that

good.

They cannot play through

1:34:251:34:31

Hoilett and Bennett but they have

been given the ball back.

1:34:311:34:36

Gundogan. Sterling.

1:34:491:34:52

De Bruyne. The boot was high, free

kick to Cardiff.

1:34:541:35:03

He certainly wasn't aggressive. I

thought he had pinched the ball off

1:35:101:35:16

the Cardiff player.

It was Jazz

Richards, and it was the hand in the

1:35:161:35:25

face that was the ultimate problem.

And De Bruyne's studs went down his

1:35:251:35:31

thigh as well. But it was not

deliberate.

1:35:311:35:36

Etheridge looking for Paterson to

win it, Kompany put an arm on him,

1:35:431:35:47

Lee Mason did not think there was

enough to justify the free kick but

1:35:471:35:50

now it will be one for Cardiff but a

bit further back in the field.

1:35:501:35:55

Raheem Sterling just picked the ball

up!

He thinks he was forced to do

1:35:551:36:00

it.

1:36:001:36:05

You know where this is going.

Towards Morrison, a bit too high and

1:36:231:36:29

it goes past everybody.

Not only

that, when the ball came in there

1:36:291:36:34

were no Cardiff City players

actually trying to get on the end of

1:36:341:36:38

it, there were four Manchester City

players who could have all headed it

1:36:381:36:43

away. Neil Warnock is saying to put

a bit of purchase on it, a bit

1:36:431:36:46

higher.

27 years in management, the

best he has done in the FA Cup was

1:36:461:36:55

the semifinals with Sheffield United

15 years ago. They lost to Arsenal.

1:36:551:37:00

Manchester City will meet Arsenal at

Wembley in the other cup, the

1:37:001:37:06

Carabao Cup, at the end of next

month. Aguero. He played it into

1:37:061:37:12

Silva. There is Sterling. Hoilett

with the tentative clearance. The

1:37:121:37:19

better one with his head. That works

against Fernandinho and it hit his

1:37:191:37:27

arm and it will be a free kick to

Cardiff. Talking about that Carabao

1:37:271:37:32

Cup final, there is a long way to go

come do we start to talk about the

1:37:321:37:37

potential of them winning the lot?

You have to. It is extremely

1:37:371:37:42

difficult to do. A lot will depend

as well, when they win the league.

1:37:421:37:50

They are already in one domestic

final.

And you have to factor in

1:37:501:37:56

Champions League.

Liverpool and

Arsenal are gone from the FA Cup.

1:37:561:38:05

De Bruyne was caught by Grujic. And

the free kick is taken quickly and

1:38:061:38:11

Sterling is onto it and he's going

to beat efforts to it but he was

1:38:111:38:15

beaten in the end and what a great

challenge that was -- he is going to

1:38:151:38:19

beat Etheridge to it. Sean Morrison

stopped Raheem Sterling from making

1:38:191:38:24

it three and killing the tie.

In

fairness to the goalkeeper he did

1:38:241:38:28

well because he made Sterling have a

touch which gave Morrison a chance

1:38:281:38:32

to pinch it away from him. How

quickly were they away?

1:38:321:38:42

quickly were they away?

It just went

a little too far away from Sterling

1:38:421:38:45

which allowed Morrison the chance

but he took it well.

1:38:451:38:56

He is genuinely disappointed that

every attack does not end with a

1:38:571:38:59

goal.

1:38:591:39:02

Etheridge in a hurry. That has

bounced through to Paterson. Ralls.

1:39:051:39:14

Grujic. Given away to Sterling.

It

is pressure again from Manchester

1:39:141:39:21

City.

De Bruyne, Aguero, Sterling is

down. Silva.

1:39:211:39:32

down. Silva. It comes Kyle Walker

and he is challenged by Bennett and

1:39:321:39:36

the last touch was off Walker and it

will be a goal kick. Walker is

1:39:361:39:44

saying how. Raheem Sterling gets

back to his feet on the other side

1:39:441:39:50

of the field.

He obviously thinks he

was taken out illegally.

1:39:501:39:59

was taken out illegally. Corner, is

it not?

It seemed that way. Bennett.

1:39:591:40:09

Aguero. That is Manga. There was an

interesting line from Neil Warnock

1:40:111:40:19

about him in the build-up, talking

about his own players and saying, no

1:40:191:40:24

disrespect, but none of them would

get into Manchester City's team

1:40:241:40:27

apart from maybe Bruno. That is a

strong statement. This is Kenneth

1:40:271:40:32

Zohore and he went for it! He did

not have any alternative but to go

1:40:321:40:39

for it when he did. There has been a

bit of a spirited response from

1:40:391:40:43

Cardiff.

It is. The long kick from

the goalkeeper and the flick on, and

1:40:431:40:49

disappointed by Kenneth Zohore will

stop this touch was not great and he

1:40:491:40:53

flicked it on and had to wait for it

to drop. In the end Otamendi did

1:40:531:40:58

enough.

1:40:581:41:02

Claudio Bravo goes long which you

don't see too often from a

1:41:041:41:09

Manchester City goalkeeper. Another

long ball potentially causing a

1:41:091:41:16

problem. Or maybe not. Gundogan down

to Fernandinho. Chased by Paterson

1:41:161:41:24

and held onto by Paterson. Silva to

Aguero.

1:41:241:41:31

They just slow down the game, the

minimum amount of touches, a little

1:41:421:41:47

look at who is around and who makes

the run.

Silva. Upended.

1:41:471:41:56

Danilo.

1:42:011:42:04

Chants of England from the

Manchester City supporters getting

1:42:241:42:28

the bird.

Maybe not the best place

to do it.

1:42:281:42:36

That is awkward for Otamendi but he

got enough on it for Claudio Bravo.

1:42:361:42:42

Kenneth Zohore is back into him and

perhaps a little too keenly.

1:42:421:42:46

Otamendi is sent spiralling down.

He

has caught him and Otamendi has made

1:42:461:42:53

a meal of it. Because Otamendi has

never clattered into anyone, has he?

1:42:531:43:05

Not a great deal of sympathy from

the referee.

1:43:051:43:11

the referee.

I don't think it

deserved the dying Swan.

Lee Mason

1:43:121:43:17

didn't think so either but it is a

free kick for Manchester City.

1:43:171:43:27

free kick for Manchester City. Matip

city fans with that chant have at

1:43:271:43:29

least sparked up the atmosphere a

little bit -- Manchester City fans.

1:43:291:43:37

Can the Cardiff team respond?

Another half an hour to go. Here is

1:43:411:43:45

Gundogan.

1:43:451:43:50

Gundogan. That was Joe Bennett who

nipped in. Fernandinho was there

1:43:501:43:55

again.

1:43:551:43:58

Hoilett can only take it out under

pressure from Walker.

1:44:331:44:40

Just a little bit more energy about

Cardiff with Kenneth Zohore and co,

1:45:001:45:09

trying to press a bit more when

Manchester City have the ball in the

1:45:091:45:13

own half.

Yes, but it is difficult

to see, other than the half chance

1:45:131:45:19

for Kenneth Zohore, but they don't

look like treating many

1:45:191:45:23

opportunities, and if they do start

to pour forward again, it could well

1:45:231:45:26

be curtains.

1:45:261:45:29

Aguero in his own half to collect

the ball.

1:45:381:45:42

Sterling, Gundogan. Aguero. Flicked

off the top of his head and

1:45:491:45:59

reasonably simple for Bennett to

clear. It is Paterson who get into

1:45:591:46:04

the face of Otamendi.

1:46:041:46:07

The edges to being made to play

their passes a bit more quickly now,

1:46:431:46:49

Manchester City -- they are just

being made.

But all the time as a

1:46:491:46:54

Cardiff City Poyet you're being

worked and worked and tired this

1:46:541:46:57

starts to seep in -- Cardiff City

player.

You might as well have a go

1:46:571:47:06

would be the first thought but you

don't want to be embarrassed.

It's

1:47:061:47:10

tricky.

1:47:101:47:13

I suppose the time to have a go

would be 2-0 or 1-0 in the next

1:47:231:47:28

score makes a difference because if

it becomes three it might all be a

1:47:281:47:33

bit too far.

1:47:331:47:41

Vincent Kompany can just stand still

with it if he wants.

Yes.

1:47:411:47:49

Claudio Bravo is happy to be a part

of the defensive line.

1:47:521:48:02

of the defensive line. You can hear

what Cardiff City fans want, they

1:48:031:48:06

want constant pressure on the ball.

1:48:061:48:10

Kompany, Otamendi and Claudio Bravo

are playing between themselves.

They

1:48:161:48:20

have earned the right to do so.

1:48:201:48:23

Otamendi has so much time to

consider his options. Fernandinho to

1:48:321:48:40

Kompany with Manchester City playing

keep ball and they have had it for

1:48:401:48:43

about three minutes now without a

Cardiff touch on it.

1:48:431:48:53

Kenneth Zohore having a bit of a

walk and now a token burst towards

1:48:531:48:58

the keeper and he sets about Kompany

which is greeted by a roar from the

1:48:581:49:02

Cardiff fans.

1:49:021:49:06

Clipped by Bernardo Silva and

Cardiff have a free kick.

1:49:151:49:20

Centre-backs up I think, get the

ball in. A little bit more loft and

1:49:201:49:23

pace this time.

1:49:231:49:29

pace this time.

Manga is not going.

Morrison is. His only goal this

1:49:301:49:39

season came against Sheffield United

in August.

This is a high line

1:49:391:49:43

defensively.

Guardiola told as it

would be all game. It was Morrison

1:49:431:49:48

who won it. Sterling setting about

Richards, he was holding him, it

1:49:481:49:57

would have been a Cardiff free kick

but advantage indicated and it is a

1:49:571:50:01

cost to Kenneth Zohore. But the

first challenge and he brings a save

1:50:011:50:06

from Claudio Bravo.

He did well

initially and if anything he tried

1:50:061:50:13

to hit it too hard, his shot. Fairly

comfortable in the end for cardio

1:50:131:50:19

bravo. -- Claudio Bravo.

1:50:191:50:27

Fernandinho lost possession which is

a rarity and that was a foul from

1:51:091:51:12

Otamendi on Kenneth Zohore and it

will be a Cardiff free kick. We

1:51:121:51:17

understand Kenneth Zohore is about

to be replaced with Anthony

1:51:171:51:20

Pilkington ready and Neil Warnock is

going to do it now. I thought he was

1:51:201:51:25

going to hold on for a second but

here comes the change.

1:51:251:51:34

here comes the change.

He is chasing

paperbacks in the park

1:51:341:51:36

unfortunately, Zohore.

Off those

Kenneth Zohore and on comes somebody

1:51:361:51:45

who, until the last few weeks, was a

forgotten man at Cardiff City,

1:51:451:51:50

Anthony Pilkington. Frozen out of

the team. He has only played a part

1:51:501:51:54

in two Lee James in -- league games

all season. But he did score in the

1:51:541:52:01

last round against Mansfield.

Pilkington was in on that! That

1:52:011:52:06

would have been some introduction

from the subs bench.

He gambles,

1:52:061:52:09

didn't he? Better free kick this

time.

1:52:091:52:17

time.

He scored 18 goals in three

years at Norwich including goals

1:52:221:52:27

home and away against Manchester

City in the Premier League in the

1:52:271:52:32

2012-13 season. Things have changed

a little since then. Things have

1:52:321:52:37

changed a lot in a short space of

time, that was still Roberto

1:52:371:52:41

Mancini's City. A lovely site, the

lights of the Cardiff City Stadium

1:52:411:52:48

and a full Cardiff City Stadium.

Unless they can stage some sort of

1:52:481:52:55

incredible comeback which is totally

against the odds in the last quarter

1:52:551:52:59

of the match, their attentions will

turn into trying to get into the

1:52:591:53:03

Premier League and making sure this

place is full every week. This is

1:53:031:53:09

Hoilett. He has gone for it!

Tremendous drive from Junior

1:53:091:53:17

Hoilett. So, so close.

1:53:171:53:21

A lot of ambition about this as

well. We are stood right behind it

1:53:231:53:28

and for a split second I was

thinking gold and so did Bravo. --

1:53:281:53:35

thinking goal. It was on a sweet

strike.

1:53:351:53:45

Neil Warnock was right behind it and

he was thinking it was a goal as

1:53:481:53:52

well. Junior Hoilett looked destined

for big things when he made his

1:53:521:53:59

breakthrough in the Premier League

for Blackburn, actually making his

1:53:591:54:03

debut against Manchester City in

2009. He was Neil Warnock's first

1:54:031:54:09

signing up on taking charge of

Cardiff.

1:54:091:54:18

Richards, Morrison. This is De

Bruyne. Sergio Aguero. Tracks by

1:54:181:54:28

Manga.

1:54:281:54:33

Manga. Aguero is still, trying to

leave Manga behind. Sterling,

1:54:331:54:40

Aguero. Corner.

1:54:401:54:49

Aguero. Corner.

How hard did he work

for all that, Aguero? Great ball

1:54:491:54:54

originally down the side.

1:54:541:55:02

Just a little head to head nudged

between them. More than a little.

It

1:55:051:55:10

was accidental.

1:55:101:55:14

De Bruyne's corner. Bernardo Silva.

1:55:171:55:27

Cardiff's greater urgency is meaning

Manchester City have defined a bit

1:55:391:55:41

more of their own. A mistake from De

Bruyne and that is a foul by Walker,

1:55:411:55:46

right into the back of Hoilett. --

they have to find.

Clever foul.

1:55:461:56:01

Ralls looking for Paterson to win

it. It will be Mendez-Laing again.

1:56:091:56:16

Gundogan's block. And it has gone

behind for a corner despite the best

1:56:161:56:23

efforts of Gundogan to get there.

1:56:231:56:27

There is a little bit of belief

about Cardiff again now.

This time

1:56:301:56:34

Manga is coming up.

It is their

first corner of the match. Manga

1:56:341:56:40

started to go and has been told not

to I think. He is hanging back. Over

1:56:401:56:45

the head of Pilkington, Morrison. It

hit Walker, what part did it hit? It

1:56:451:56:52

is going to be a corner and nothing

more.

He had almost turned his back

1:56:521:56:57

on it.

Morrison did put his arms in

the air but the shout was mainly

1:56:571:57:05

from the Cardiff fans. A little bit

of Cardiff pressure now, Junior

1:57:051:57:12

Hoilett with the corner.

Mendez-Laing goes near. Away by

1:57:121:57:19

Sterling. A good job Manga Rowe was

back and he lists it forward and is

1:57:191:57:23

a well timed burst from Paterson but

well watched all the way by Claudio

1:57:231:57:27

Bravo.

1:57:271:57:35

Sell him!

I will leave that one to

you.

1:58:171:58:29

Fernandinho has managed to evade the

outstretched leg of Ralls, Sterling

1:58:531:58:57

on the edge of the box, this is De

Bruyne. Nice bit of skill from De

1:58:571:59:05

Bruyne from the shot cannoned into

Manga. It looks like Manchester City

1:59:051:59:11

are ready to step it up a gear again

going forward.

1:59:111:59:17

Mendez-Laing does well. Paterson.

Grujic. Mendez-Laing.

1:59:241:59:41

Grujic. Mendez-Laing. Mendez-Laing

seem to be a bit put off by the

1:59:411:59:44

attention he was getting.

In the end

he wasn't sure what his plan was. He

1:59:441:59:50

just kicked it out.

A little bit

encouraged by what Cardiff have

1:59:501:59:55

given us in the last ten minutes?

Absolutely, since Pilkington came

1:59:551:59:58

on, really.

1:59:582:00:02

Another grown as Mendez-Laing lost

possession. Sterling, what ball that

2:00:132:00:21

is but Sterling is denied by

Etheridge.

2:00:212:00:27

Etheridge.

A fantastic pass. The

vision. Just marvellous isn't it?

2:00:272:00:37

Pilkington offside.

2:00:372:00:44

Didn't look particularly convincing

did he Sterling? When the ball came,

2:00:452:00:49

and of looked at him thinking... But

a great run.

What a great season he

2:00:492:01:01

is having, testament to Pep

Guardiola's work at Manchester City.

2:01:012:01:06

He has grown up, he understands the

game. For more end product.

2:01:062:01:14

Sergio copped one.

Yes the foul on

Aguero draws the whistle and a

2:01:402:01:45

yellow card for Ecuele Manga.

2:01:452:01:53

yellow card for Ecuele Manga. How

bad was this on Sergio Aguero?

It

2:01:542:01:59

was certainly late.

2:01:592:02:03

De Bruyne in the challenge with a

big defender. The right foot comes

2:02:092:02:14

in.

Yeah, the follow-through.

Talking to the Manchester City

2:02:142:02:21

technical staff at half-time, after

the tackle by Joe Bennett on Leroy

2:02:212:02:27

Sane they were a little concerned

about what was to come in the second

2:02:272:02:30

half. Manchester City already

without Jesus. They are an

2:02:302:02:37

experienced striker like as we saw

from the starting line-up for this

2:02:372:02:40

game, for the abundance of riches

they have through the squad.

Even

2:02:402:02:46

though they have not started with

the striker tonight they still win

2:02:462:02:50

the game.

Change her Cardiff City,

Mendez-Laing going off, coming on in

2:02:502:02:56

his place Liam Feeney on loan to

Cardiff from Blackburn.

2:02:562:03:06

Cardiff from Blackburn. No surprise

it is Cardiff's biggest crowd of the

2:03:072:03:12

season 32,339 but the owner is not

here, Vincent Tan has other

2:03:122:03:18

commitments. But the chairman is of

course in the house. Not too

2:03:182:03:24

perturbed that Vincent Tan is not

present because he's not been a very

2:03:242:03:31

good luck charm, whenever he has

been here they have not won. But

2:03:312:03:37

they will certainly enjoy that

attendance.

Absolutely.

2:03:372:03:42

Little bit of Premier League quality

from the Serbian on loan from

2:03:592:04:02

Liverpool. Excuse him if he's a

little bit rusty because he's not

2:04:022:04:05

had any sort of game time with the

Anfield side.

2:04:052:04:09

Back to Etheridge.

2:04:132:04:15

Fernandinho.

2:04:202:04:22

Grujic caught by Fernandinho and

Fernandinho is going to go in the

2:04:312:04:34

book.

You said caught, but he was

taken out, blatantly.

2:04:342:04:40

Lee Mason having to be patient,

Fernandinho not taking a bit of

2:04:512:04:56

notice, he wants to carry on his

exchange with Callum Paterson. He

2:04:562:04:59

has been booked.

Yeah.

A player who

has been previously sent off by Lee

2:04:592:05:08

Mason, that was against Burnley last

season.

2:05:082:05:14

Callum Paterson just been, as you

should, not shutting up.

Otamendi

2:05:182:05:30

with his arm in the air organising

the line with the assistance of

2:05:302:05:35

Vincent Kompany. Towards Pilkington

but over him and Kompany deals with

2:05:352:05:40

it. Richard 's,

2:05:402:05:48

it. Richard 's, back to Ecuele

Manga. 14 Pilkington chase.

2:05:482:05:53

Joe Ralls. Feeney. It was attacked

by Paterson, it's going to be a goal

2:05:532:06:06

kick which Cardiff are unhappy

about.

Is Otamendi back in the

2:06:062:06:11

stadium yet? What was that?

The

first bit of play we have seen from

2:06:112:06:22

Liam Feeney since coming on, and

very impressive it was. Deadhead

2:06:222:06:29

that one onto Paterson.

2:06:292:06:31

The drums are still beating for

Cardiff so presumably while there is

2:06:472:06:51

life there is hope.

2:06:512:06:54

Just the sort of return to action he

would have wanted?

Kompany, yes,

2:07:192:07:24

most definitely. You mentioned it

before, it is game to game. He's

2:07:242:07:30

been so unlucky. As a player in that

position he has got everything.

His

2:07:302:07:39

tenth season with Manchester City.

323 appearances for the club.

2:07:392:07:49

What an outstanding captain he's

been for them. From the moment the

2:07:532:07:57

rise started.

For a few years he was

an absolute colossus.

2:07:572:08:04

Still only 31 so a few years of

football left in him if he can stay

2:08:102:08:14

as clear of those injuries as

possible.

That is a statement though

2:08:142:08:17

isn't it?

2:08:172:08:25

Morrison with the throw. Cleared by

Kompany. Sterling beaten by Kenedy.

2:08:272:08:33

Feeney. Lively substitute.

2:08:332:08:41

That's gone out for De Bruyne. If

they can get one, with a few minutes

2:08:452:08:58

remaining could set some sort of

frantic finale. In a game which is

2:08:582:09:02

not suggested it would have.

2:09:022:09:13

Through to Bernardo Silva. Here they

come. Bernardo Silva, straight at

2:09:202:09:26

Etheridge.

Just a little bit too

easy for him wasn't it? The gap

2:09:262:09:33

opened. Needed to curl around the

goalkeeper. Just far too close to

2:09:332:09:37

him. Great run from Walker's well.

Pep Guardiola just stood at the end

2:09:372:09:48

of his technical area with his arms

outstretched as if to say "Why?"

2:09:482:09:57

They have made a potentially tricky

tie looked very, very comfortable,

2:10:102:10:13

Manchester City. In the right way,

the way they have played.

Quite a

2:10:132:10:18

few of the Premier League teams are

doing that. Those at the top end

2:10:182:10:24

seemed to be naming strong teams, by

and large.

Why would you not want to

2:10:242:10:28

win another game?

Yes and the teams

at the top are bigger squads anyway.

2:10:282:10:36

I wonder if Cardiff have had burst

yet or if there is one left in them?

2:10:472:10:55

About to make another change. Damour

is about to come on. Aguero. Away

2:10:552:11:06

from Bennett.

He wants to score

doesn't he? Sergio. Sterling was

2:11:062:11:14

clear on the left.

Sterling closer

to him. In terms of being Manchester

2:11:142:11:23

City top scorer.

Brilliant tackle

there by Sterling there.

2:11:232:11:36

Claudio Bravo...

He's giving us a

little bit of excitement.

I'm just

2:11:402:11:48

trying to look at the manager. Pep

Guardiola never, never flinched.

2:11:482:11:57

Aguero with the burst. He is

exasperated that Bernardo Silva did

2:11:572:12:00

not give him the ball.

I think he

saw him he just thought it was a bit

2:12:002:12:05

too difficult to read the ball

through.

Blunder went through to

2:12:052:12:11

Danilo, good save by Etheridge and

it's booted away.

2:12:112:12:18

it's booted away.

Frustrated as

Aguero was they are still getting

2:12:192:12:23

there, Manchester City. Lovely pass

into the path of Danilo. He hit it

2:12:232:12:27

like a full-back.

Final Cardiff

change, Joe Ralls going off. It's

2:12:272:12:36

going to be Loic Damour in his

place, a player signed from the

2:12:362:12:44

French second division. Midfielder.

2:12:442:12:54

Manchester City corner with

wide-open spaces in the penalty area

2:12:582:13:02

now. Going to get another one.

Morrison putting it for firmly

2:13:022:13:13

behind.

2:13:132:13:18

behind. Gundogan, Bernardo Silva.

2:13:192:13:25

Manchester City throw. With two

minutes of the 90 to go. Manchester

2:13:302:13:37

City going to make another change.

Before the throw or after? It's

2:13:372:13:42

going to be after. It is going to be

known. Brahim Diaz coming on.

2:13:422:13:53

Bernardo Silva going off, he might

have had a goal but did not get one

2:13:532:13:56

in the end.

Great cross for the goal

for Sterling. Just an embarrassment

2:13:562:14:04

of riches.

Another couple of notches

inexperience under the belt of

2:14:042:14:13

Brahim Diaz, his sixth appearance.

2:14:132:14:20

The Cardiff City supporters

chanting" every little thing is

2:14:272:14:33

going to be all right". Just not in

the FA Cup this season.

2:14:332:14:45

Free kick Manchester City. I think

it's time for you to name Man of the

2:14:452:14:52

Match? Tune that is the boy, right

on cue. He makes the game look

2:14:522:14:57

ridiculously easy.

Kevin De Bruyne.

He doesn't have his mate with him

2:14:572:15:05

today, the

2:15:052:15:10

today, the Spanish Silva.

2:15:102:15:15

Aguero, Sterling. Aguero wants it,

he's hanging back, it's Sergio

2:15:262:15:30

Aguero and Lindback.

He is just

desperate for a goal. Absolutely

2:15:302:15:36

desperate.

2:15:362:15:43

That is not him is it?

Scored at

Bristol City in the Carabao Cup on

2:15:492:15:56

Tuesday and what a successful week

it's been four Manchester City in

2:15:562:16:00

Wales and the West. Into one cup

final in Bristol into the FA Cup

2:16:002:16:05

fifth round from this game

2:16:052:16:14

fifth round from this game in

Cardiff.

2:16:142:16:19

Touched down by Hoilett.

Stuck at

it, Cardiff City. That's the really

2:16:232:16:31

important thing.

I think Neil

Warnock will be happy with what he

2:16:312:16:36

seen from his team in the second

half, that's for sure. They have

2:16:362:16:40

been disciplined, they have not been

brushed aside and have actually

2:16:402:16:47

created a couple of openings for

themselves. Not

2:16:472:16:53

themselves. Not been to... That is

going to see him go. A dreadful

2:16:542:16:56

tackle in the first half and that

was also barred, Joe Bennett finally

2:16:562:17:01

sent off.

The kid had just come on

as well.

2:17:012:17:11

as well. Why would you applaud

someone after a tackle like that?

He

2:17:132:17:20

storms down the tunnel, he will not

be playing next weekend as Cardiff

2:17:202:17:24

City go to Leeds. He's quite

fortunate he's played the second

2:17:242:17:30

half at all.

Yes, yes. People say

it's justice but it's justice is it?

2:17:302:17:37

You should've gone.

. De Bruyne.

2:17:372:17:42

Diaz. None the worse for wear from

that challenge from Bennett.

2:17:442:17:54

Into the third minute of injury

time. Etheridge rather scuffs the

2:17:572:18:01

hasty clearance.

2:18:012:18:04

Only two defeats in 37 games played

in all competitions for Manchester

2:18:112:18:13

City.

2:18:132:18:18

City.

Fabulous isn't it?

One of

those defeats was Champions League

2:18:202:18:23

match day six away to Shakhtar

Donetsk with the mix and match side

2:18:232:18:28

in a dead rubber.

2:18:282:18:34

in a dead rubber. Neil Warnock never

short for a word with the officials.

2:18:352:18:39

Good to see he still officiates

games himself. In training never

2:18:392:18:43

gets a decision wrong. His team give

it a go but like so many other teams

2:18:432:18:46

who have faced Manchester City this

season they were just not up to the

2:18:462:18:51

test that was in front of them. It

is Pep Guardiola's Blues who go into

2:18:512:18:56

the last 16 of the FA Cup. They

started their work very early on

2:18:562:19:01

thanks to Man of the Match Kevin De

Bruyne. Raheem Sterling made it two

2:19:012:19:06

before half-time. Despite one or

two, I would not safe rights but

2:19:062:19:12

little notes of promise for Cardiff,

the result was never really in

2:19:122:19:15

doubt. Manchester City still on

course, it may be a long way off,

2:19:152:19:20

but they could win the lot this

season.

2:19:202:19:23

STUDIO: Pep Guardiola walking off

with another victory. As we say, in

2:19:282:19:36

all four competitions are still, who

knows? Nobody has done that, that is

2:19:362:19:40

for sure but if anybody can the way

this Manchester City team are going

2:19:402:19:45

who knows. We shall see. He still

not satisfied with the refereeing

2:19:452:19:50

despite the fact that his team

cruised through to the fifth round

2:19:502:19:54

of the FA Cup. He's obviously got

words to say to the official. Not

2:19:542:20:00

satisfied.

We saw him on the

touchline, he was going berserk with

2:20:002:20:06

some of his players for giving

possession away too easily. It was a

2:20:062:20:11

bit of a keep ball session for them

in the second half. They were

2:20:112:20:15

protecting themselves, they did not

want to put too much into it, at

2:20:152:20:20

times Cardiff were reluctant to go

and press them. They got a bit of

2:20:202:20:25

success but nothing too serious. It

was a very professional performance

2:20:252:20:28

from Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola

during the second half, it was quite

2:20:282:20:34

clear he was pointing out he was not

satisfied with probably the tackle

2:20:342:20:38

on the first half on Sane because it

was particularly bad.

It was

2:20:382:20:45

childish and immature from Joe

Bennett, especially the one on Sane,

2:20:452:20:47

looked pretty militias.

Nobody wants

their players heart, we are only

2:20:472:20:56

assuming because of the gesture he

made in terms of his foot.

It looked

2:20:562:21:01

that way, I think there were a few

in the game, the one from Ecuele

2:21:012:21:06

Manga, and Joe Bennett getting sent

off, it was an accumulation of

2:21:062:21:11

fouls. Manchester City already with

a few injuries so you can understand

2:21:112:21:15

Pep being angry.

We were talking

about if Cardiff should have a go or

2:21:152:21:20

not in the second half but it's

difficult, it was a bit of a damp

2:21:202:21:23

squib.

They did the best they could,

credit to them. Created one or two

2:21:232:21:29

chances. Looked a bit more

organised. It sounds a bit crazy but

2:21:292:21:34

I think Aguero helped them having an

orthodox striker, more orthodox

2:21:342:21:37

movement to deal with. One or two

chances in the second half, I think

2:21:372:21:43

they will feel better about the

performance albeit out of the

2:21:432:21:48

competition.

Let's hear from man of

the with Manish.

Well done, through

2:21:482:21:56

to the next round, another

potentially tricky tie well

2:21:562:21:58

negotiated.

Yeah, different playing

style to everyone else. It was a bit

2:21:582:22:08

weird. But the tactics were class.

Vinnie was always free and it's like

2:22:082:22:15

we opened up the midfield for him to

come through and every time somebody

2:22:152:22:18

with press them we would play to the

man who was marking that guy so we

2:22:182:22:23

had a lot of space. The second half

was a bit strange because they did

2:22:232:22:28

not want to attack as either and I

think it was a bit boring for half

2:22:282:22:34

an hour. But keeping energy for the

next game.

The free kick was very

2:22:342:22:44

clever, you are aware of the jump

that way?

Yes, they tell us before

2:22:442:22:48

the game, we know all the details.

The wall was not an nine metres for

2:22:482:22:55

me, they were very close so it was

easier to put it under a banner

2:22:552:22:59

over.

It looks like a tough 90

minutes with some meaty challenges.

2:22:592:23:04

Yeah but we know how they play. We

are just try to play football, they

2:23:042:23:08

catch us a few times, that is

football. But Leroy is injured now

2:23:082:23:14

and hopefully it's not too bad.

Well

done.

I think we have got a pundit

2:23:142:23:21

in the making. Interesting

assessment of the tactics, it is

2:23:212:23:25

unusual per teams going man-to-man

and somebody has to be free, they

2:23:252:23:29

come out and they lose them.

Danny

said it at half-time, it was strange

2:23:292:23:34

what they were doing going

man-to-man. It's very brave because

2:23:342:23:38

you are putting yourself up against

players of Premier League quality,

2:23:382:23:42

top-quality players and I think

without a doubt that certainly

2:23:422:23:47

suited Manchester City. They say OK,

we fancy our ability one against

2:23:472:23:52

one, we can handle it and they

always had a spare man. What's

2:23:522:23:56

changed in the second half if they

make a substitution. They went and

2:23:562:24:00

got the players higher up the park a

little, created one or two chances

2:24:002:24:05

but there was nothing serious. It

was a comfortable afternoon for

2:24:052:24:08

Manchester City.

Kevin De Bruyne

said we look at the details and we

2:24:082:24:12

knew they were jumping, the

2:24:122:24:13

said we look at the details and we

knew they were jumping, the wall was

2:24:132:24:14

a bit too close, easier underlying

over. It is if the jump!

Yes, if

2:24:142:24:21

they are not jump it would have gone

straight into the feet of the

2:24:212:24:24

players but don't underestimate the

quality. He's done it before. Great

2:24:242:24:27

execution.

His all-round game is

terrific, a number of examples here,

2:24:272:24:33

Danny.

He can do anything, he's a

complete midfielder. Look at the

2:24:332:24:39

ball in behind. Not just his passing

but his workrate, his all-round

2:24:392:24:43

workrate to chase back and win

balls. He always sees the pass. They

2:24:432:24:48

tolerate seeing the past but it's

the execution as well. Got

2:24:482:24:51

everything as well. This ball here.

It's a delight to play as a striker

2:24:512:24:57

because you just make you run, you

know the ball will be there. I don't

2:24:572:25:03

even know how he sees this ball but

then they executed with the right

2:25:032:25:07

way to

2:25:072:25:07

then they executed with the right

way to pass.

2:25:072:25:07

then they executed with the right

way to pass. Sterling

2:25:072:25:08

then they executed with the right

way to pass. Sterling should do

2:25:082:25:09

better. He's just on top of his

game.

The attitude was fantastic

2:25:092:25:13

from the Manchester City players

today. It should be easy when you go

2:25:132:25:17

to grounds of the lower league, you

think it's going to happen but top

2:25:172:25:22

players make it happen. You cannot

question the attitude and he is one

2:25:222:25:25

of them.

Certainly. Manchester City

always a threat, no goals

2:25:252:25:30

of them.

Certainly. Manchester City

always a threat, no goals in the

2:25:302:25:31

second half but Sterling with the

header, unusually.

Yeah, again,

2:25:312:25:37

disappointed, if you're going to

concede you want to concede them in

2:25:372:25:40

the hardest way and this was not the

case. I much what Morrison was doing

2:25:402:25:44

this for a wide or high up the

field.

He has to get back into a

2:25:442:25:50

defensive position. Then Ecuele

Manga, he does not look at Sterling

2:25:502:25:57

once.

They were trying to be so

disciplined and fight to the

2:25:572:26:01

once.

They were trying to be so

disciplined and fight to the players

2:26:012:26:01

but there was no organisation.

Yeah.

It's tougher Cardiff, their thing is

2:26:012:26:07

looking for promotion. One or two

opportunities, with a bit of luck

2:26:072:26:12

they could have dragged themselves

back into the game, Junior Hoilett

2:26:122:26:15

they could have dragged themselves

back into the game, Junior Hoilett

2:26:152:26:16

with a great effort.

Yes, this is

what he was all about, spent most of

2:26:162:26:21

the game defending and chasing

shadows but when he gets into these

2:26:212:26:24

areas it's what he's capable of

doing, picking up the loose ball and

2:26:242:26:28

driving inside. Cannot catch that

any better, so unlucky. Claudio

2:26:282:26:32

Bravo beaten and it just grazes the

top of the net. Could not get enough

2:26:322:26:37

of the ball, Manchester City

dominating possession.

That is the

2:26:372:26:41

problem against them, getting enough

of the ball. This was the

2:26:412:26:45

opportunity in the first half.

For

Cardiff to have been successful

2:26:452:26:50

today they needed to take every half

chance they were going to get.

2:26:502:26:54

today they needed to take every half

chance they were going to get. And

2:26:542:26:56

for City to make one or two mistakes

like that with the goalkeeper but

2:26:562:27:01

other than that they were at it,

they were professional, the attitude

2:27:012:27:05

fantastic and deserved the results.

Cardiff, promotion, do you think

2:27:052:27:11

they can make it?

It is possible. I

think the automatic place is still

2:27:112:27:16

up for grabs, first or second. Even

in the play-offs I think they would

2:27:162:27:21

be difficult to beat, defensively

very good and physically strong,

2:27:212:27:25

pace and power in the attack so it

if they can handle the pressure and

2:27:252:27:29

expectancy second-half of the

season. Neil Warnock has been there

2:27:292:27:32

and done it so they have good

chance.

And Manchester City, do you

2:27:322:27:37

think of four, is it conceivable

someone could do that? Champions

2:27:372:27:41

League is very difficult but the

Premier League is almost done.

If

2:27:412:27:44

anyone is going to do it this is the

team that looks the most capable.

2:27:442:27:48

Champions League I'm not quite sure

but on the domestic front I am

2:27:482:27:52

confident they can dominate.

They

will give it a go but I don't think

2:27:522:27:56

they will do it. I think they will

just fall short somewhere along the

2:27:562:27:59

line but they are one hell of a

team.

They really are. You can see

2:27:592:28:04

the draw for the fifth round on the

one show from 7pm tomorrow. Now is

2:28:042:28:10

the time to register for another cup

competition.

2:28:102:28:16

I have put my team and!

I am sure you have. We are just a

2:28:402:28:45

bite out of time, thank you Alford

joining us gentlemen. The culture

2:28:452:28:54

club have beaten the Cardiff gang,

from all of us, a very good buy.

2:28:542:29:00

COMMENTATOR: Already to going

Cardiff. South Wales well and truly

2:29:032:29:07

up for the cup. De Bruyne, how

clever was that? The shot is not

2:29:072:29:14

going to count, the flag is up.

Great ball in and its 2-0, Sterling

2:29:142:29:20

heading at in. What a challenge that

is. He's gone for it, what an

2:29:202:29:26

effort!

2:29:262:29:31

effort! Manchester City could win a

lot this season.

2:29:312:29:34
