  1. 90+1

    Aguero finds himself in space from Toure's ball, and he forces Mignolet into a wonderful save with the fourth goal seemed destined right there.

  2. 90

    Three minutes of added time to be played.

  3. 90

    Late sub now for City as Rodwell comes on in place of Silva.

  4. 89

    There we go. It's been coming for a while, but it's with a slice of luck as Milner's free-kick clips the head of Gardner which takes the ball past Mignolet.

  5. 89


  6. 88

    Kolarov lures Gardner into making a careless tackle after a mazy run down the left. Yellow card for Gardner and a free-kick to City on the edge of the area.

  7. 87

    Kolarov takes two bites at the cherry from a Silva corner, both shots hitting Sunderland bodies to concede another corner. We're surely up to 30 City corners by now.

  8. 86

    Tevez is rested for the final few minutes, with Clichy taking the Argentinian's place.

  9. 84

    Fletcher tracks back to play in Larsson as Sunderland look for a late lifeline. Gardner has a fierce drive from range but the excellent Lescott sticks his head in the way.

  10. 83

    Sessegnon's game comes to an end as Campbell takes to the field.

  11. 82

    Zabaleta looks for Tevez after a storming run down the right, but he's followed all the way by Vaughan, who does well to concede a corner.

  12. 81

    Yellow card for Colback for a tackle on Silva.

  13. 79

    Cuellar cuts out Silva's ball to Aguero as Sunderland look to break with Fletcher. He finds himself a yard to shoot, but fires straight down the throat of Hart, who gathers well.

  14. 77

    City are denied a spectacular goal after a lovely move involving Richards, Aguero and Tevez ends with O'Shea questionably clearing as Richards claims a free-kick.

  15. 76

    Toure goes for the spectacular with a 25-yard drive. It's not far off, but City are surely heading for a couple more goals here such is their utter dominance.

  16. 75

    Crikey. Richards this time goes for the overhead from the corner, seeing as the headers weren't going for him, and while his effort flies over the crossbar, it had Mignolet initially scrambling.

  17. 73

    Incredible. Richards again wins the header from the corner but another Sunderland body denies him on the line! The end result, the umpteenth City corner of the game.

  18. 73

    Barry is next in line to test Sunderland's weary bodies. He takes a crack from 20 yards and Gardner's head takes it out of play.

  19. 72

    Hart is then called into action from the corner as McClean heads the ball towards the far corner and Hart stretches out a hand to keep it out.

  20. 71

    Sunderland win a corner as Kolarov nods behind McClean's pacey ball towards the far post.
