City set up United date

City reached the last four for the first time in 30 years after scoring the only goal of the match when England defender Micah Richards powerfully headed home a corner after 74 minutes.

Stoke City ended an even longer wait to make the semis for the first time since 1972 when they beat West Ham United 2-1 at the Britannia stadium.

They will face Bolton Wanderers, who beat Birmingham City 3-2 on Saturday when United made sure of their place with a 2-0 win over Arsenal.

Macnhester City coach Mancini, under pressure to end City’s 35-year wait for a trophy, said his team looked sluggish after travelling to Ukraine for a Europa League game on Thursday which they lost 2-0 to Dynamo Kiev.
