Familiarity bred intent rather than contempt in this rumbustious fourth round FA Cup tie at the Britannia Stadium.

The selections made by both managers made it abundantly clear that the FA Cup mattered to both Cities – Stoke and Manchester.

A sometimes cantankerous footballing tug of war was finally won with one gigantic ‘heave’ by Pablo Zabaleta’s 85th minute goal expertly finished with the outside of his foot and a strike worthy of his more vaunted Argentine countrymen Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero.

Roberto Mancini chose to stick with Costel Pantilimon as his last line of Cup defence but otherwise made no concessions to the Premier League campaign.
