Thank you for all your comments tonight. Hope you enjoyed the commentary tonight. Make sure you join us again soon.
And thats it - City are through to join Manchester United, Stoke, Chelsea, Leicester, Southampton/Sunderland, Tottenham/Hull, and West Ham in the draw
Both teams just seeing this out now - Newcastle will rue that chance Cisse had - could've been so different. Will that save from Pantilimon net him a start on Saturday?
Ball falls to Ben Arfa on the edge - great strike but its cleared off the line by Lescott - that had beaten the goalkeeper
william : waste chances that's what happens cisse should not of started! Morale will be getting low now
After he set up his goal Dzeko tries to repay the favour for Milner, backheeling into his path but Milner fires wide via a deflection
Milner played a one-two with Silva and threads it in to Dzeko who takes it round Krul and slots home.
Newcastle still capable of getting one here - just need a bit of luck.. Debuchy's ball claimed easily by Pantilimon
Expertly crafted by Dzeko on the left side of the area - square to Negredo and he has the simple task of tapping it home
Ben Arfa's ball finds Cisse on his own, just the keeper to beat - and Pantilimon pulls off a great save - best chance of the night
Stew Convery : just like Sunday - City just turned up to spoil the game, and hopefully win it. City reserves away to Sunderland in next round !
City have looked in no rush all night really. It's Newcastle who have asked the questions... Silva's booked for kicking the ball away
Well, it looks like we're headed for a late night here at St James' Park.... just 4 mins added time to find a winner
Sissoko's ball in goes right across to Gouffran, his cross is cleared to cabaye, who wins a corner... Ben Arfa short to Cabaye - his cross is put inexplicably wide by Gouffran - luckily for him he was offside
Cabaye almost threads a delicious ball through to Cisse but its just cut out - really unlucky as Cisse wouldve been clean through
This is petering out really - can you see anyone coming up with a piece of magic? let me know @1rebs..
Corner cleared to Milnber on the edge - his shot is blocked and then scrambled clear... you sense City are building something here
Dzeko lays it into the path of Negredo but he takes an age to have a shot - eventually a weak chip is paled away by Krul - City's best chance
A coming together between Richards and Tiote has led to the Newcastle man coming of worse - looked a painful one as Richards fell onto Tiote's leg... he looks to be ok
Krul comes out and is dispossessed by Navas.. he plays it back to Milner who has an open net to aim at - and puts it over!!!
Navas plays it in, Boyata completely miscues his chance, its put back in by Negredo but Richards can't quite leap high enough to get his effort on target
Yanga Mbiwa is left isolated on the back post... he heads it straight to Navas- but then does well to block it for a corner
Negredo in possession outside the box, floats it towards Dzeko but its claimed well by Krul and Newcastle come forward again
Debuchy finds a new career as a ball boy - actually leaving the playing area through one of the exits to retrieve the ball!! sack the ball boy!
Can anyone break the deadlock after half-time at St James' Park? Negredo is favourite to do so and available at 6/1 in the Sky Bet half-time Price Boosts along with Shola Ameobi (11/1).
Oren....As a Newcastle Fan i am still annoiyed about Sunday But this performance so far today has been Very Good. But we need to take our chances. Maybe bring on Ben arfa to help create some chances and also put on Remy to finally finish it
Oliver Bowman: I'm going for a 2-1 win for Newcastle,They will dominate the second half like they have in the first.Exciting second half aswell!
Shaz : Newcastle look like they're gunna nick this one by a goal to nil. They're looking tight at the back.
What are you making of the game tonight? let me and the world know by emailing email@example.com or tweeting me @1rebs
but they're still dangerous and better final balls from Milner and Richards might have seen them take the lead
It's been a decent display by the home side as they look to bounce back from defeat at Sunderland. CVity's reserves have looked slightly disjointed, as you'd expect from a makeshift side.
Its Half time - Newcastle have definitely had the best of the attacking play but they haven't broken through... will they be made to pay for it?
@bradleykurt: Can't recall when City last fell to the Toon. I think with City having several men out to prove a point tonight it'll be 1-3 to them.
First attack by City for a good while - Rodwell gets in behind and pulls it across but there's no blue shirt there to turn it in
Anitas plays the free kick into the gap between defence and goalkeeper, Ameobi throws himself at it but can't quite get a touch
Keep your views and predictions coming in - who's impressed you so far? Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @1rebs
Cisse crosses and its headed out by City - only to Anita with a great chance ... but he puts it wide!!!
Anita puts it in, Cisse meets it with his head, its blocked... he tries again but drags it across goal - Ameobi stabs it into the net.... but he's offside... unlucky but Cisse should have finished himself
Encouraging spell for Newcastle, just unsettling the City back four and getting the crowd behind them - another free kick here wide on the right
Great save by Pantilimon - Ameobi hits it after Cisse's shot was blocked. but the keeper gets to it and turns it round the post
Milner breaks unchallenged down the left - he has an age to put a ball in... but he puts it behind woefully..
Alan: Newcastle have a tough run coming up. I think if they don't win tonight following Sunday's derby defeat they could be in trouble.
As I say that Debuchy breaks down the right and crosses to Gouffran to head... but its slightly too high for him
Newcastle need to up the tempo to get the crown up for it I think... City are content to play it around. Newcastle need to upset their rythm a bit - get into them
More calm possession for City. many of this team will be hoping to take their chance tonight having been out of favour... Jack Rodwell battles his way forward but is crowded out on the edge of the box
Anita launches it towards Ameobi - his knockdown finds Cisse on the edge of the box but his shot is blocked
Free kick to Newcastle is struck by Haidara but it hits the wall.. his follow up is wide but Newcastle are getting into the game now
Krul hits it long, it falls for Cisse in the box and.. he flicks it goalwards but its just wide - that was a chance
Newcastle have a free kick just outside the area... Anita crosses to Williamson - he heads it back across but its cleared
City still enjoying the majority of possession without really creating anything at the moment.. content just to pass it around
The Newcastle crowd are very quiet tonight. noise coming from the up in the gods where the visitors are situated
Rodwell threads it through to Jovetic but the linesman raises his flag - but he was well onside - harsh for City
Don't forget - I want your comments as we go through the night - let me know what you're thinking - whether you're watching on tv or not - email me email@example.com or tweet me @1rebs
Chris Green from Huddersfield...Really glad to hear that Joe Hart has been dropped - I have no complaints with Pellegrini's decision and hopefully, this will teach Joe Hart a lesson that he'll never forget. Don't get me wrong, Joe Hart is a good keeper, but his errors are out of the ordinary and he needs to be more consistent as this could hamper his chances of being selected for England if these unnecessary errors continue.
Rob in Oxford...End to end game tonight Newcastle really need to bounce back after the derby Newcastle to steal it in a 5 goal thriller cabaye off the bench to score the winner 3-2 Newcastle.
Nicky: Can't remember the last time we had a good run in this competition. It's obviously not City's strongest side but it's still pretty good. Apart from Ameobi (sorry Shola,I've never been a big fan) our team's not too bad,especially if we can get some service to Cisse and he has remembered to wear his shooting boots....which he seems to have misplaced some time ago. At least let's give them a game.
Connor Atherton... Big win for Newcastle tonight. The fans will want to see Cisse make more of an impact than he did against Sunderland
Manchester City are the odds-on favourites to progress in 90 minutes tonight at 4/6 with Newcastle 4/1 and a draw, meaning extra-time, 16/5.
Ben in St Albans: Interesting line ups where both managers want to put a decent side out with a few anomalies. so on that basis this has 2-2 written all over it then who knows....the toon hopefully...we need it more!
Matt: The team is more or less what I expected. I would have given Demichelis another run out instead of Boyata, so he can get some more minutes under his belt, but I suppose with the Kompany situation its too much of a risk......2-1 to City...
Kendo....Dorchester....Joe is a brilliant keeper and I feel for him......But where is Joe Corrigan? a brill keeper in the day for city. surely he is still around to give tuition.
As expected then - Joe Hart is on the bench tonight - the question is... will he definitely be reinstated on Saturday, or is this Pantilimon's chance to claim the number 1 shirt
