  1. 90+5

    All over, and City run out quite comfortable winners in the end. Everton faded in the second half after matching their opponents in the first. City well in control by the end.

  2. 90+4

    Lovely interplay from Nasri and Toure sees the France midfielder in on goal, but Howard stays big and makes a good block.

  3. 90+4

    Milner's cross from the right is comfortable for Howard.

  4. 90+3

    Free-kick for City in the centre-circle now as Fernandinho is caught. No card this time, though.

  5. 90+2

    Fernandinho loses the ball in midfield, but Everton can't capitalise as Kone drills his shot straight at Hart.

  6. 90+1

    Ball behind for a City goal-kick as Kone's throughball bounces off Naismith.

  7. 90

    Into the final minute of the 90 now.

  8. 89

    Getting silly now with these bookings. Run-of-the-mill foul by Fernandinho on Coleman in the centre circle leads to yet another caution.

  9. 87

    Naismith hauls down the counter-attacking Toure and joins the lengthening list of names in Moss' notebook.

  10. 86

    Nasri skips through a couple of challenges but then overhits an attempted pass for Negredo. Goal-kick.

  11. 85

    Chance for Fernandinho to get a show away, but he takes an extra touch and allows the Everton defence to smother his shot.

  12. 84

    Glorious move from City needed only a finishing touch. Negredo sends a raking left-to-right crossfield ball out to Silva on the right. He slips in Zabaleta, who fires the ball across goal. No-one there to finish it, but City starting to enjoy themselves now.

  13. 83

    Lukaku makes way for Kone. Faded badly in the second half after a superb first period.

  14. 82

    Surprisingly, given the chasing Man City had midweek, it's Everton who look the more weary side here. Negredo played in behind a square back four, and he hammers a shot goalwards that Howard parries.

  15. 81

    Everton about to make their third and final change. Kone ready to come on.

  16. 80

    Almost a booking per foul now as the indiscretions mount up. Coleman into the book now for a late foul on Silva.

  17. 79

    Final change for City as Aguero makes way for Nasri. Will leave the field thinking he's got two goals, but will soon discover it's only one.

  18. 79

    Free-kick is half-cleared, but McCarthy helps it back into the box. Distin gets his head to it, but there's no power on it and Hart makes a comfortable save.

  19. 78

    Cards starting to mount up now as Zabaleta goes into the book for a late tackle on the overlapping Baines.

  20. 76

    Everton have faded quite badly as an attacking force in this second half. Look short of ideas now as another break comes to nothing.
