Man City 2 Chelsea 0. All over and it is Manuel Pellegrini's side who make their way into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Garcia now down, after being barged over by Salah. Final few seconds ticking away. Mourinho still out on the sidelines, but has given up with the theatrics. City win a late throw deep in Chelsea territory. Ball worked to Navas, who slices a volley well off target.
Oscar running through midfield, but has little to aim at. Ivanovic offers an outlet, but he is faced by two City defenders. Salah has a go, but scuffs a low cross into the hands of Pantilimon.
Hazard runs the ball out of play as once again he sees space shut down around him. City back into their passing groove. Just a case of going through the motions now.
Nasri tries to feed a low pass into Negredo, who has got in behind Cahill. A sliding challenge cuts the ball out, but Negredo sets off after it and puts in a full-blooded challenge to prevent Chelsea clearing long.
A rousing chorus of Blue Moon rings out around the Etihad. Chelsea pegged back by their own corner flag. They lose the ball, but prevent Toure from shooting from distance. Navas can cross, but his delivery is headed clear.
Matic with a cynical challenge on Toure, which leaves him in a crumpled heap. Also a coming together between Nasri and Mikel. Tempers threatening to boil over. Matic has been shown a yellow card.
Hazard lets an Ivanovic pass run past him. Matic looks to gather, but Zabaleta snaps at his heels. City try to counter, with Navas leading the charge. He is frustrated to see a shoulder-to-shoulder tussle with Azpilicueta go against him.
Kompany floats the ball forward, but onto the boot of Luiz. Hazard cut out again by another well-timed tackle. He has been well shackled this evening.
Nasri pulls Cahill out of position, and squares for Toure. No way through for City on this occasion. Hazard can run the ball out and feed a ball in behind for Torres to chase. Lescott takes no chances as he turns the ball out from in front of his own goalkeeper.
Hazard's corner is met powerfully by Negredo. Chelsea gather again and return the ball to the box. Matic wants to take a touch inside the box, allowing Lescott to nip in and prod behind. Hazard's second corner is plucked out of the air by Pantilimon.
Another card coming out, and it will be shown to Garcia. He had another nibble at Mikel. Hazard floats the free-kick forward, and it is touched behind for a corner.
Pantilimon with a sliced clearance, which allows Salah to get down the right. He sends over a low cross, which is cut out by the retreating Garcia. Chelsea try again, but Hazard clips a tame cross into the hands of Pantilimon.
Torres outnumbered as Chelsea look for him again. They can't expect him to do much when he is surrounded by City defenders. He needs support alongside him if they are going to go long. Too easy to contain.
The final change of the evening sees City shuffle their attacking options, with Dzeko making way for Negredo. He has been nursing a knock of late as well, so the minutes here will do him good.
Ivanovic whips over a cross, which Lescott meets. City struggle to clear their lines for a moment, allowing Azpilicueta to set his sights from distance. His 30-yard drive sails into the stands.
Torres is found this time, but his glancing header won't fall to Salah. City decide to go long this time, but the ball skips off the surface and away from Dzeko. Cech to the edge of his box to gather.
Keep-ball from City as they work their way back to Kompany. Chelsea rushing around but getting nowhere. Navas instead finds Dzeko, who sees an ambitious effort from distance blocked by Cahill. Matic goes long towards Torres, but only finds Pantilimon.
City win another free-kick, with Chelsea not helping their own cause at the moment. Salah does well to track back and prevent Milner from slipping into space again.
City have the ball in the net, but it won't count. Nasri whips over the corner and Garcia powers a header goalwards. Cech spills the effort and Lescott bundles home from close range, only to then see the flag goes up.
Toure dominating in midfield now, shrugging off challenges and dictating the play. Again he goes wide to the left. A cross to the back post makes its way through to Navas. He centres and Cahill nods over the top of his own crossbar.
Zabaleta pushing on from full-back, and finding Toure. He finds Milner, who is now on the left. City opt against throwing the ball hopefully into the box.
Mourinho still prowling the touchline trying to provide inspiration for his troops. He hasn't seen much to get excited about this evening. His side are chasing shadows again on the field.
Smart hold-up play by Dzeko as he brings the ball down and waits for support. It arrives in the form of Nasri, who sees a first time shot from just inside the box blocked at source.
Final throw of the dice by Mourinho as he hauls off Willian and sends on Oscar. A like-for-like change.
Chelsea look to be short of answers. They haven't tested Pantilimon all evening and now have to find a way past him on two occasions.
Final involvement for Silva as he trudges off to be replaced by Navas. Shows the strength of City's bench that they have been able to introduce two world-class creative influences in the second half.
Chelsea have it all to do now. They may argue that Silva was offside as he broke into the box, but it was a very tight call and it went City's way. The visitors have to offer a response now.
GOAL MAN CITY - NASRI. The hosts double their advantage. Chelsea can't get out of their own half and Nasri frees Silva into the box. He carries on his run and is in the right place to tap home as Silva cuts back across the six-yard box.
Another free-kick to City as Milner is left on his backside by Azpilicueta. Hosts in no rush. Toure plays the set-piece short. He gets the ball back and finds Nasri moving through the box. He lays off to Milner, who sees a cross cut out. City remain on the front foot, and Cahill has to put in a brave block to deny Dzeko.
Mourinho now out questioning the referee. Mikel pulled up for hand-ball as it loops off his foot and onto his arm. Chelsea soon have it back, but have to drill down their left and out of play.
Cech allowed to walk the ball forward, before then picking out Azpilicueta. Willian chips right to Salah, who has Ivanovic in support. He scuffs over a poor cross which is easily dealt with.
Good flick from Hazard into the feet of Torres. He looks to make a direct burst towards the box, but Kompany puts in a perfectly-timed challenge. Salah gathers, but sends a misplaced pass behind for a goal kick.
Matic wins a free-kick on halfway despite seeming to over-run the ball. Chelsea take the set-piece from the wrong position, before Matic is then bundled over again. Toure sees yellow.
Now is the time for Torres, as he is introduced in place of Ramires. City also making a change, with goalscorer Jovetic replaced by Nasri.
Dzeko exchanges passes with Jovetic, but then asks too much of Milner as he offers support down the right. Zabaleta wins the ball back for City. Hosts go backwards. Movement on the Chelsea bench.
Willian requires three touches to get the ball under control, by which time he has been closed down and ends up conceding a throw. Mourinho rooted to his seat at the moment. Penny for his thoughts?
Jovetic skips past Luiz and takes a tumble. He is shown a yellow card for diving. He clearly knocked the ball too far in front of him and decided to go to ground. Doesn't look good on the replays.
Toure invites Zabaleta forward, but he fails to find a team-mate. Chelsea can only go long from Cech. The ball is soon coming back at them, but Dzeko lacks the pace to rush onto a Jovetic through-pass.
Willian delivers, the ball is glanced through the box, and then cleared. Ramires turns the ball back towards the area, but Kompany can clear. City awarded a free-kick of their own.
Salah trying to play on the shoulder of Kompany, but needs something to chase. Chelsea pressing now, with Willian bundled over by Garcia from behind. Free-kick wide on their right, almost level with the edge of the box.
Silva takes the set-piece himself, but sees his delivery nodded out at the front post by Azpilicueta. Milner sends the ball back out to Silva, who forces another corner. His second effort is met by Cahill.
Clichy lumps the ball into the air, and Luiz takes it down well. Ball comes back Clichy's way, and his run is cut off by Ivanovic. Free-kick to City as their full-back was clearly blocked. Hosts go short, and Silva ends up winning a corner.
Patience pays off for City as they work Clichy into space down the left. His cross is scuffed, but Jovetic battles to get his body across the ball inside the box. He spins, but fires high over the top from 12 yards out.
Patient play from City as they play inside their own half. Chelsea have to push out as a unit, but don't. All too comfortable for the hosts as they move the ball unchallenged.
Chelsea try to spring out on the counter, but Salah has little support and has to go backwards. Ramires tries to run away from Silva down the middle, but ends up on the deck after being muscled off the ball.
Ivanovic tripped by Silva inside his own half. Free-kick played into Hazard, but again he is crowded out. Jovetic finds Clichy, who goes inside to Toure, The breaks loose to Jovetic, who goes right to Milner. His cross is blocked, and he then fires over when the ball breaks back his way.
Torres, the more natural replacement up top for Chelsea, is warming up. He is only recently back from a spell on the sidelines. Expect to see him at some point if things stay as they are. On the field, Luiz is quick enough to beat Dzeko in a foot race towards a loose ball.
Salah will operate down the middle, with Hazard sitting just behind. Ramires and Willian also charged with the task of getting forward in support. Salah's first involvement sees him slip offside.
Mourinho out early again. Players arrive shortly after, led by Chelsea. Can they find a way back into the tie? We are about to find out.
Remember you can also bet in-play at Skybet.com. City are now 4/11 to come out on top, with Chelsea 7/1 and the draw 3/1. You can get 5/1 on the game ending 1-1 and going to a replay.
How do you see the second half going? Get your thoughts in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @SkySportsChrisB.
Man City 1 Chelsea 0. The hosts hold the upper-hand at the interval. Still all to play for though in the second 45.
Cahill walking out from the back. Luiz takes over, but opts against a punt forward. City have everyone behind the ball, keeping the back door bolted.
Luiz cautioned for a clumsy challenge on Jovetic in the build-up to the last move, which presented Milner with the open field he was able to exploit.
Lescott up above Eto'o, but City can't get the ball to stick up top. They try again and Milner races into acres of space down the right. He gets his head up and spots Dzeko at the far post. He has to fizz the ball across the six-yard line, and no-one in the middle can get a touch.
Toure moves the ball on too quickly for Mikel, who ends up conceding a free-kick. Opportunity for City to deliver into the box from wide on their left. Milner fires the ball over, but puts too much on the delivery and misses out all of those in a crowded penalty area.
Kompany into the feet of Jovetic, who tries to lift the ball over Luiz for Dzeko. His idea almost comes off, but the ball ricochets through to Cech. Dzeko takes another knock to the face.
Mikel with no room in which to do anything. Both sides battling away bravely in the middle of the park. No-one being given any time in which to settle.
Hazard dropping very deep to get involved. He is always looking for space though. He is found again, but is then halted in his tracks as Ivanovic allows a pass aimed in his direction to slip under his boot.
First card of the evening goes to Kompany. He sees Hazard allow the ball to run across his body and is left with little option but to wrap his arms around the Chelsea playmaker. Hazard floats the free-kick forward, and Kompany rises highest in front of his own goal.
Cech does go short with a goal kick on this occasion, into Luiz. He ambles forward, before passing square. Chelsea need to up the tempo. City winning the ball back far too easily. Again, a period of scrappy play in the middle of the park.
Eto'o sends Garcia tumbling on halfway. Toure floats the ball down the middle, with Milner looking to chase in behind. Good run, but the ball towards him is a little too firm and runs through to Cech.
Toure nudges Willian back towards halfway, and then Ramires gives the ball away. Chelsea man tracks back quickly to make amends and smuggle the ball back from Jovetic. All a a bit scrappy.
Hazard with a clever flicked pass towards Ramires, but again Kompany is in the right place for City. Chelsea try again, but Eto'o plays a pass behind Willian 25 yards from goal.
Cech thinks about taking a goal kick short, but decides better of it. He can find the head of Ivanovic, but he is forced very wide and can only glance the ball blindly back onto the field.
Zabaleta forced out to the right by Azpilicueta. As the City man sends a pass to Silva, he is caught on the ankle. Free-kick to City wide on the right, not far from the corner flag. Milner takes. He pulls back to Dzeko, who can't nod on to a team-mate from the edge of the area.
Dzeko has taken a knock to the face, but is okay to continue. Silva still floating around the middle of the park, looking to get involved as often as possible.
Ivanovic with a hanging cross from the right which sails over the head of Eto'o. City prepared to knock the ball around midfield. Milner finds room on the right, but sees Silva slip when the ball is rolled his way.
Silva wide to Clichy, who crosses first time. Cech comes to meet the delivery, but gets nothing on it and is fortunate to find no City player waiting behind him.
Hazard turns on towards Eto'o, but Kompany is letting nothing pass him. Luiz forced to concede a throw on halfway, as he tangles with Dzeko.
Dzeko fends off Azpilicueta, but is adjudged to have backed into the Chelsea full-back. Visitors now looking to inject some urgency into their game. Not working as Ramires plays an odd pass towards no-one and out for a goal kick.
Milner sent tumbling by Azpilicueta, but waved to his feet. Chelsea push on, with Willian looking right to Ivanovic. The Brazilian keeps moving and gets the ball back on the edge of the area. He looks to shoot first time, but is always leaning back and lofts high into the crowd.
Azpilicueta throws down the left for Eto'o. He does well to chest into Hazard. He does really well to squeeze the ball into the path of Ramires. He looks for Eto'o again, who is now inside the box, but City have numbers back.
Ivanovic takes an age to get a throw back into play. Home supporters urging him to get on with it - and they're winning! City's latest attack comes to nothing, down their right.
Silva and Jovetic work the ball wide to Milner. City upping the tempo. Another well worked move ends with Dzeko testing Cech with a curling effort from the edge of the box, which he parries to safety.
Cech hammers long down field. Clichy under no pressure heads out for a throw on halfway. He had time to bring the ball down. Chelsea go back to Luiz.
One-touch stuff from City as they go right this time. Loose pass from Zabaleta which never looks like finding Milner. Chelsea can't get out. City press again and Toure skids an effort from 20-yards out across the face of goal and wide of the post.
Chelsea playing their way out from the back once more. Ivanovic pushing on more and more now. Silva doing his defensive job by tracking back and blocking another cross. From the throw, Ivanovic slips into the box and a low cross is spilled by Pantilimon, but claimed at the second attempt.
Silva blocks a forward pass from Ivanovic. Chelsea being frustrated in the middle of the park. They edge their way down their right with a couple of throws. Ivanovic goes long, but only on to the head of Lescott.
Garcia into Jovetic, as Chelsea again give the ball away in midfield. When they get it back, Toure slides in on Mikel and is deemed to have felled the Chelsea man. He doesn't agree and gets a talking to from Phil Dowd for his reaction.
Space for Ivanovic on the right for Chelsea. He looks to cut inside, and is caught on the ball. The visitors soon get it back, but have to go backwards. City pressing well, with Dzeko leading from the front.
Game on now. Chelsea have to go looking for a route back into the tie, which should open things up. Has been a bright start, which bodes well.
GOAL MAN CITY - JOVETIC. No mistake this time and the hosts take the lead. Another nice move from left to right by City. Dzeko feeds the final pass into the path to Jovetic to hit first time across Cech and in off the base of the post.
Zabaleta up above Hazard to nod out of play. Throw taken quickly back to Hazard, but can't hook the ball into the box. City look to counter. Clichy sees a cross from the left loop into the air. The ball breaks out to Toure, who tests Cech from distance. He spills a 25-yard shot to Jovetic, who lifts the rebound over the top with Cech closing fast.
Neat interplay by Chelsea gets them out of their own half. Again, though, City pull nine men back and close down space. Kompany comes out to meet Willian on halfway and take the ball off his toes. Garcia then sends Mikel sprawling.
Toure nicks the ball off Matic, but also clipped his heels and is pulled back as he sets off over halfway. Chelsea go short with the free-kick, and then give the ball away. Clichy trying to make inroads down the City left, but he can't find a way past Ivanovic.
Ramires in behind Clichy, but only for a second as the City man gets back to nod out for a throw. Chelsea work across the field to Hazard. He cuts inside, but has nowhere to go. City with plenty of men behind the ball, allowing Zabaleta to slide into a challenge on Eto'o.
City now taking a turn to enjoy a prolonged spell of possession. Jovetic fends off three challenges and looks wide to Milner. He fires a pass into the feet of Toure inside the box. The Ivorian is unable to control the ball and sees it bobble behind for a goal kick.
loose touch from Zabaleta, but he gets away with it as Hazard nips in and knocks the ball out for another throw. City work their way from right to left. Silva seeing plenty of the ball, but yet to produce a moment of magic.
Clichy all the way back to Pantilimon, who has to hack forward. City latching onto the second balls in midfield. Dzeko does well to hold off Luiz and find Milner, who settles for a throw off Azpilicueta.
Chelsea squander possession and Jovetic can dart down City's left flank. He feeds a low delivery into the box, but there is no chance of Dzeko catching up with play and the ball rolls harmlessly to Azpilicueta.
Garcia clatters into Willian, with the ball already gone. Quick feet from the Chelsea man. Cahill sends the free-kick wide to Ivanovic, before getting it back. Visitors happy to play along their back four, trying to lure City out and create space in behind.
Ramires into the feet of Willian, but he is instantly surrounded by three City defenders. Hosts nick the ball and push out. They try to get Clichy moving down their left, but he knocks the ball out for a throw. Very heavy first touch.
David Luiz seeking out Ramires, but gets far too much on a floated pass and it runs all the way through for a goal kick. Both managers already out on the sidelines getting a closer look at proceedings.
Chelsea win a couple of throws down their left. Hazard freed into space for the first time, and looking for Eto'o down the channel. Kompany spots the danger early and is on hand to clear the lines for City.
Jovetic wide to Milner. He cuts back inside to Silva, and then Zabaleta. City moving the ball well. Milner sends over a low cross, but his delivery is easily cut out by Matic.
Cahill's calf tested early on, and he passes the test well as he slips away from Jovetic and finds Mikel. Move breaks down in midfield. City's turn to try and work their way forward. Patient play by both sides.
Silva felled early on, free-kick played short. City looking to get their passing game going, Chelsea giving them no time in which to settle. Luiz plays back to the feet of Cech.
Etihad breaks into spontaneous applause, seems fitting really for one of the true greats of the game. Now, down to business in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Players out onto the field. We will have a minute's silence prior to kick-off out of respect to the legendary Sir Tom Finney, who passed away on Friday.
The teams are in the tunnel so we will have to leave the feedback there for now. There will be further opportunities to have your say at half-time and at the final whistle.
Avess Ahmed says: "I think Chelsea can give City a test today - Oscar to come off the bench and score 1-0."
Keith Murray says: "I doubt that Chelsea could bring another surprise here, I would love to see a Chelsea win but in reality I think City will be too strong for us today. 2-1."
Jordan Cole says: "I'm hoping for City to win this one, Toure, Jovetic and Silva to score. Cahill for the visitors!"
Leon Lilley says: "I can see Chelsea with a more attacking approach than their previous encounter. And with City thinking ahead to midweek game against Barca, I fancy Chelsea to pinch the win. 0-2."
Ben Rees says: "Not sure Adam Gillis watched the same Premier League game as the rest of us! Chelsea were the better more exciting side. The Man City goal post can attest to that. Not happy with the starting XI from Jose today though - 1-1 draw with Chelsea to win at the bridge."
We're 25 minutes away from kick-off at the Etihad. Keep your pre-match thoughts coming in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @SkySportsChrisB.
Worth noting that City will be in UEFA Champions League action against Barcelona on Tuesday, so how will Pellegrini play it with such a big game on the horizon? Chelsea not in action again until next Saturday, so have no need to rest legs or shuffle their pack.
Adam Gillis says: "I expect another typical boring display by Chelsea who will come to counter like they did in the Premier League a couple weeks back. Wouldn't surprise me if Chelsea win again by the same scoreline. But as a City fan hoping for a 2-0 win."
John Parker says: "I really hope that today's game is as exciting as the league encounter. I would like to see how City will cope with their recent form and it will be interesting to see if Chelsea can pepper the goal like in the 1-0 win. I expect a very attacking and open game, but could also be very close. Not sure who I want to win though!!!"
Oliver Clark says: "Blues fan here. 2-1 Chelsea with Hazard and Cahill with our goals. Toure for city. Come on blues!!"
Kenny says: "I'm a Chelsea fan & really disappointed that Mikel is playing & think City will win 3 nil."
Nathan Collison says: "Chelsea will win again here at the Etihad 1-0. Man City will dominate this game, however be hit on the counter by Chelsea with Torres coming off from the bench to score."
Ben Drew says: "Chelsea fan hoping that we can bag an important victory, but I'd take a draw and a win at the Bridge. 1-1 or 2-1 to us is my prediction. Enjoy the game."
Neil Cheesman says: Frustrated that Lampard and Cole not making the starting 11 again...Lampard has played well each time he has started this season - doesn't bode well for either of their world cup hopes... although keeps them fit!"
Tony George says: "Although Jose does not like losing & the "little horse" is sitting on top of the premiership. I think he will take a defeat today in exchange for the title & or Champions League success. I'll take a draw & home win at the Bridge!"
Chris Green the quickest out of the blocks, saying: "Man City to win 3-2, with Toure, Silva and Dzeko scoring the goals."
Both sides lining up in a similar system, and both managers have named strong starting XIs - shows how seriously they are taking this game and this competition.
Chelsea team: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta, Mikel, Matic, Ramires, Willian, Hazard, Eto'o. Subs: Schwarzer, Cole, Lampard, Salah, Schurrle, Oscar, Torres.
Man City team: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Garcia, Toure, Milner, Silva, Jovetic, Dzeko. Subs: Hart, Richards, Demichelis, Kolarov, Navas, Negredo, Nasri.
You can also bet in-play throughout the evening at Skybet.com. Man City start as favourites at 23/20, with Chelsea 23/10 and the draw 13/5. You can get Mourinho's men to win 2-0 Price Boosted to 20/1.
Can City keep their Quadruple dreams alive or will it be the Blues from the Bridge who make their way into the quarter-finals? Who will be the stars of the show? Let me know your thoughts.
How do you see today's game going? Feel free to offer your opinion by contacting me direct at Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @SkySportsChrisB.
The two sides met at the Etihad as recently as 3rd March, with a spectacular strike from Branislav Ivanovic enough to settle the contest and hand Jose Mourinho's men the edge in the title race.
Chelsea, meanwhile, sit top of the Premier League table and are looking to maintain an impressive FA Cup record which has seen them lift the trophy in three of the last five years, and four of the last seven.
City are already safely through to the Capital One Cup final, but will be hoping to go one better than they managed in 2013 when it comes to the FA Cup - having been beaten by Wigan in the final 12 months ago.
