Match Highlights View More Below

A patient City left it late to edge into the semi-finals of the Carling Cup with this hard-fought win in north London, our first away to the Gunners since 1975.

Sergio Aguero pounced to round off a superb counterattacking move with just seven minutes to go, but chances for City had been few and far between prior to that.

Second-choice keeper Costel Pantilimon had kept City in it with some fine saves before the break. Both sides were much-changed and that gave a disjointed feeling that translated into a tense occasion.

By the time kick off rolled around, a mere 50 hours or so had elapsed since City had departed left the pitch at Anfield. But with such a short gap between fixtures, it helps if you can almost completely change your team and still name a strong starting XI, as Roberto Mancini can.
