    Over in Catalonia, Lionel Messi has just been revising history. You can get across it all in BBC Sport's live text. It will whet the appetite even more for Tuesday night's meeting with City.

    The next domestic action here though is tomorrow's FA Cup when Everton meet Swansea before Liverpool and Arsenal go head to head. That doesn't need much selling either.

    See you there.

  2. 19:36: 

    More from Jose. It is not all as magnanimous as it first appears.

    "The second goal was an offside but we would still have lost 1-0 as we were never close to scaring City in the game," he adds.

    "'Today proved how difficult it is to win here, which shows how well my team did in the last game."

    It's alright we haven't forgotten.

  3. 19:30: 

    Our man on the Etihad ground Chris Bevan is in Jose Mourinho's post-match press conference. One game journalist has asked the Portuguese if his side have 'failed' him, echoing the words Mourinho used about Wenger a little over 24 hours ago.

    "I don't say my team failed, I say City played much better than us, deserved much more than us to win," said Mourinho.

    "The situation is simple to analyse: They were the best team, they won."

    Match stats

    It is difficult to spin the match stats any other way than a fully deserved City win. Chelsea managed only three attempts at goal and not one was on target.

    Ciaran Fleming: Can't wait to hear Mourinho's press conference now. Tactically out thought by Super Manuel.

    Edwin Jabbari: Pipe down Mourinho. That was as easy a victory as City have had all season.

    Tyler Powell: Last time out, Jose was a tactical mastermind. This meeting everyone says he hasn't a clue. My, the crowd is fickle.

  6. 19:22: 
    Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    Schadenfreude. Probably not Jose Mourinho's favourite German dish right now. After claiming Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was "a specialist in failure" in his press conference on Friday, there will be plenty in north London who enjoyed that toothless display from his side.

    Vincent Kompany

    Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany, speaking to ITV: "It's a big victory against a strong team. We love this competition and it was a great game for the competition. We are really happy with the result. 12 days ago we had a bad game and we gave them too many chances, today we adapted and it was comfortable. The dressing room wanted revenge today, from the word go we were hard in the challenges, created a lot of chances and didn't give many chances away."

    Manuel Pellegrini pressed flesh with Jose Mourinho before marching off down the tunnel. The Chilean's thoughts will now be turning to Barcelona side who have just taken a 1-0 lead over Rayo Vallecano in La La Liga.

    City meet the Catalans at the Etihad on Tuesday in an absolute monster of a Champions League tie. Who would you pick for that one?

    Danny Mills, at Etihad Stadium for 5 live SportMan City 2-0 Chelsea

    "I think Chelsea will be very disappointed with their performance. In the end it was a comfortable win for Man City, who were much, much better. They were solid and denied Chelsea time and space throughout. You have to say, City thoroughly deserved their victory."

    H: Many things wrong for Chelsea today. Mikel more of a hindrance than a help - too many fouls and he needs too many touches. And I haven't had a decent pass to a forwards feet. Salah, Hazard, William have not had a kick. Poor, Chelsea today. City good value.

    Rich in London: Still no shots on target for Chelsea. Going out with a whimper...

    Nick from London: This is great news for Chelsea. I'm delighted that City are going block up their season with meaningless cup matches. The Premier League and Champions Legaue are 100 times more important!

  18. 18:59: 
    Five to go- Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea belatedly put a bit of pressure on as Joleon Lescott is forced to stretch and concede the visitor's first corner of the game with Nemanja Matic looking to get in behind him. Five to go.

  19. 18:57: 
    YELLOW CARD- Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    Javi Garcia has picked up a yellow card that he probably could have received about an hour ago. He smiles as Phil Dowd pulls it out of his pocket for a hack at Jon Mikel Obi.

  20. 18:56: 
    Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    Jose Mourinho has more than enough good will built up with the Chelsea fans to shrug off this defeat. The travelling contingent chant their manager's name despite a pretty tame performance.

    Beeeeeeaaast. Alvaro Negredo comes on for a late run-out. Edin Dzeko heads for an early sit-down.

  23. 18:53: 
    Ten to go- Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    The clock ticks up to 80 minutes as Cesar Azpilicueta sends a shot drifting harmlessly over the top from distance.

  24. 18:52: 
    Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    It has been all Manchester City in the second half. The sting in the tail that we were expecting from Chelsea has not arrived. Jose Mourinho said they lacked "personality" against West Brom in the league recently. They have not been the life and soul of the party tonight either.

    Danny Mills, at Etihad Stadium for 5 live SportMan City 2-0 Chelsea

    "That is another very tight decision from the linesman to disallow Lescott's strike. You really need a slowed-down replay to be sure."

  26. 18:50: 
    DISALLOWED GOAL- Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    Joleon Lescott's celebrations are cut short by the linesman's flag. Fair enough as well. The Manchester City defender was just past the last man when Javi Garcia got his head to a corner and so was offside as he turned in after Petr Cech's weak parry.

  27. 18:47: 
    Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    Roberto Martinez, whose Everton side face Chelsea next weekend, is taking in the game from the plush seats. There has not been a lot of attacking threat to worry about from the Blues.

  28. 18:44: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    Jose Mourinho's first two substitutions have made little impact. His last roll of the dice is to replace Willian with Oscar.

  29. 18:43: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Man City 2-0 Chelsea

    That is going to be David Silva's last contribution. He is replaced by Jesus Navas, who is let off the leash to run at some full-backs for 20 minutes.

    "It was poor defending from David Luiz, who puts his hands up and waits for the offside decision which doesn't come. And I don't think John Terry would have made that mistake.

    "Luiz could have tracked his runner and stopped that attack at source. And Chelsea are probably now going out of the FA Cup, with City still on for the quadruple."

    GOAL- Man City 2-0 Chelsea - Samir Nasri (67 mins)
    Samir Nasri

    A lovely, lovely team goal and Samir Nasri is at the top and tail of it. The Frenchman pokes a pass through to a darting David Silva, who is a shade offside the replays reveal, before continuing his run to meet Silva's sublime reverse return pass for a simple tap-in.

    Ticker-tape floats down from the upper tiers. It is like World Cup 1978 in the Etihad.

  33. 18:38: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Jose Mourinho responds with a wave as the away fans chant his name. His side have 25 minutes to find a way back into the game.

  34. 18:37: 
    YELLOW CARD- Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Manchester City's Yaya Toure goes into the book for a foul on Nemanja Matic.

  35. 18:36: 
    SUBSTITUTIONS- Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Both managers change things up. Jose Mourinho looks like he has seen enough of this experiment with Mohamed Salah up front, withdrawing Ramires to bring on Fernando Torres.

    City bring off Stevan Jovetic and bring on Samir Nasri for his first appearance since picking up a knee injury in January.

    Matthew Jepson: That was the most shocking dive I've ever seen from Jovetic there!

    Chelsealegend12: Really bad sportsmanship from Jovetic there. Awful dive! What was the point?

    Jamie Jenkins: Dives like Jovetic's should be punished with a three match ban. It is quite simply cheating and needs to be eradicated.

  37. 18:33: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Manchester City are not giving Chelsea a sniff of the ball at the moment. The one time they get a sniff, Nemanja Matic is too casual and Edin Dzeko picks his pocket.

    Danny Mills, at Etihad Stadium for 5 live SportMan City 1-0 Chelsea

    "If diving was made a red card offence and someone was sent off for diving it would eradicate it almost immediately. The risk of a red card would not make simulation worthwhile."

    YELLOW CARD- Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Stevan Jovetic earns a yellow card with a terrible dive. The only thing that you can say in his favour is that is was so blatant that he can't be that well practised in trying to con the referee.

  40. 18:28: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Manchester City clear the set-piece with ease. Vincent Kompany gets up highest to apply a big forehead to the ball.

  41. 18:28: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    James Milner has done an excellent job in shackling Eden Hazard so far, getting his toe in on the Chelsea playmaker again. Stevan Jovetic has given away a free-kick in a dangerous area though with a trip on Willian.

  42. 18:26:  
    BBC Radio 5 liveSir Tom Finney

    Preston manager Simon Grayson on 5 live Sport: "It was absolutely fantastic here today. It was very sad news last night but as a mark of the man people have shown their respects all across different football clubs. Our club can be very proud of how we've conducted ourselves over the last 24 hours, because it's not easy. So many people came through the turnstiles today. Hopefully he'll be looking down on us with a smile on his face, hopefully if we get promotion this year.

    "I once met him in his home - as a football person I wanted to go and experience a man who has respect across the game worldwide. I sat with him for a few hours and listened to his stories. I could have been there for many more hours. That was a moment I can look back on, and I think I was fortunate to have met such a man."

  43. 18:25: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Stevan Jovetic clears the bar with an effort from out wide and on the angle. He looks like he is getting his mojo back though after an injury-hit start to life at City. He is playing on instinct rather than second guessing everything.

    James Milner swipes in a cross from the right flank. It thuds back to him off a defender and this time he goes for goal. But his shot is well over the top. Manchester City look like they are starting up where they left off in the first half though.

  46. 18:21: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Mohamed Salah has taken up a central position and is the most advanced of the Chelsea players with Eden Hazard just behind him and Willian and Ramires out wide.

  47. 18:19: 
    KICK-OFF- Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    We are back under way.

  48. 18:18: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    There are plenty of options on the Chelsea bench if Jose Mourinho wants to go and chase the game. This might not have been the change you would have picked though. Mohamed Salah is on, but Samuel Eto'o is sacrificed.

  49. 18:15:  
    Robbie Savage, 5 live SportCardiff 1-2 Wigan

    "Great performance and great victory by Wigan today. But I cannot believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not play his strongest Cardiff XI this afternoon. I do not get it, and it drives me mad. I'm not having it. And don't get me started on Southampton..."

    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at the Etihad StadiumMan City 1-0 Chelsea

    "Manchester City have the half-time lead but they have the upperhand in this FA Cup tie in more than just the scoreline. Chelsea counter-attacked with venom - and great success - when they won here in the Premier League earlier in February but they have not been allowed the space to do that this time around thanks to the diligence of Javi Garcia and James Milner, in particular, in the Manchester City midfield.

    "That situation will not change while City are ahead, as they have no need to commit men forward in great numbers after the break, so there is much to think about for Jose Mourinho at the interval."

    match stats

    Chelsea have been kept firmly in their box by Manchester City. Willian's hopeless chop well over the top is their only effort on goal so far. And not a corner for either side.

    Danny Mills, at Etihad Stadium for 5 live SportMan City 1-0 Chelsea

    "Physically, Man City have been stringer and they've been on the front foot. They haven't given Chelsea any time or any space. Chelsea need character and leadership - it is so, so important. John Terry would be revving his team up out there. At the moment Chelsea simply haven't really threatened."

    Manchester City firmly in control of the game. Can Jose Mourinho come up with a plan to hijack the contest over the next 15 minutes?

  56. 18:02: 
    YELLOW CARD- Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    David Luiz clobbers Stevan Jovetic up near the half-way line as the pair contest a bouncing ball, but Phil Dowd wisely allows play to continue as James Milner scampers down the left.

    The England man's cross is a teaser, right down the corridor of uncertainty between goalkeeper and the retreating defence, but Edin Dzeko cannot quite reach it. A yellow for Luiz at the end of it all.

  57. 17:58:  
    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at the Etihad StadiumMan City 1-0 Chelsea

    "Chelsea have had only one shot in the first 40 minutes - and it was a pretty woeful effort from Willian, scooped high over the bar.

    "Manchester City look much more of a threat going forward but, crucially, are defending with discipline, and numbers, too. James Milner and Pablo Zabaleta are teaming up to keep the visitors' main dangerman Eden Hazard quiet on Chelsea's left and he has only been successful with one of his trademark dribbles in the first half.

    "Tactical frustration, so far, for Jose Mourinho."

    Manchester City find themselves a little stretched for the first time as Joleon Lescott's miscontrol gives away possession. Chelsea spring to life and Vincent Kompany resorts to a crude shirt tug to halt Eden Hazard as his Belgium team-mate spins in behind him. That is the first yellow card of the game.

    Petr Cech is creaking a little bit. The Chelsea goalkeeper comes for a cross but completely misses his punch over the top of David Luiz's head. Luckily for him, there is no City attacker lurking behind him.

    Thibaut Courtois, on loan at Atletico Madrid, might be in that Chelsea shirt next season.

  67. 17:45: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Willan sits back on his heels and clips an effort from the edge of the area well over the bar. Ramires trails a weak shot wide shortly after. Eden Hazard has yet to get on the ball.

  68. 17:42: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    City are knocking on the door, looking for a second. Yaya Toure punted a long-range effort just wide before Edin Dzeko wraps his left peg around a shot from almost the same patch of turf which Petr Cech has to get two solid fists behind.

    The visitors look ruffled. They have not settled at all.

  69. 17:39:  
    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at Etihad StadiumMan City 1-0 Chelsea

    "Yaya Toure's shot - and Stevan Jovetic's follow-up - had just woken the crowd up after a slow start and a lot of them were still on their feet when Jovetic scored with City's next attack. The Etihad Stadium is bouncing now, with the home fans singing "We're the famous Manchester City and we're going to Wembley". That much is true, in the Capital One Cup at least."

  72. 17:37: 
    Man City 1-0 Chelsea

    Yaya Toure and Jon Mikel Obi go shoulder to shoulder sending tremours around the Ethidad and referee Phil Dowd thinks that the City man stepped over the line. Toure disagreed and is backed up by captain Vincent Kompany. They manage to keep the cards in the officials pocket with their reasoning.

    "Jovetic had a sighter only a few seconds ago, and this time no mistake. A really cool finish, in off the inside of the post. It was a really good City move and Azpilicueta was caught on his heels. The shot went through his legs as he committed to a desperate sliding tackle. City are a goal up and Chelsea have got it all to do now."

    Stevan Jovetic had hit the bar just a minute before as Petr Cech spilled Yaya Toure's shot, but makes no mistake when offered a second bite of the cherry.

    The Montenegro international outstrips Cesar Azpilicueta for pace to gather Edin Dzeko's pass and apply a slide-rule side-foot finish which checks in off the inside of the far post.

    Danny Mills, at Etihad Stadium for 5 live SportMan City 0-0 Chelsea

  79. 17:28:  
    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at the Etihad StadiumMan City 0-0 Chelsea

    Not much in the way of animation from either manager in the opening few minutes, although that is probably because there has not been much for them to get excited about.

    "Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has stood, hands deep in the pockets of his cosy-looking winter coat, at the edge of his technical area since the game started. Manuel Pellegrini has just joined him, arms folded, looking deep in thought and similarly well wrapped up."

  80. 17:28: 
    Man City 0-0 Chelsea

    Manchester City have had plenty of the ball in the early stages, but don't look keen to commit too many numbers beyond the ball unless Chelsea catch them on the counter. Nemanja Matic is shadowing Yaya Toure. That will be a duel to watch, two midfield titans.

  81. 17:25:  
    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at the Etihad StadiumMan City 0-0 Chelsea

    "Manchester City started in an orthodox 4-4-2 formation but it is clear David Silva has licence to roam from the left. He has already popped up to help James Milner on the opposite flank and is drifting inside whenever possible, leaving Stevan Jovetic or Edin Dzeko to cover him on the left.

    "Javi Garcia is sitting deep behind Yaya Toure in the middle of the park, giving him the chance to get forward."

  82. 17:24: 
    Man City 0-0 Chelsea

    Javi Garcia is already putting himself around the pitch more effectively than Martin Demichelis managed in City's league defeat. The former Benfica man clatters into Willian. He failed to get any of the ball, but Willian knows he is on the pitch at least.

  83. 17:22: 
    Man City 0-0 Chelsea

    James Milner has been shadowing Eden Hazard in the early stages, but that is a difficult role to keep doing for 90 minutes. As Hazard showed in Chelsea's goal in the league win here, he likes to wander all over the pitch to cause mischief.

  84. 17:20:  
    Danny Mills, at Etihad Stadium for 5 live SportMan City 0-0 Chelsea

    "James Milner has come in to do a job on Eden Hazard. Jose Mourinho, standing as he is right in the middle of his technical area, is looking to set down a marker. City do have injuries and one or two other problems at the moment."

    "Yaya Toure will have a bit more license to go forward today, but missing Fernandinho is a huge blow for the hosts. I do fancy Chelsea - though I think they will miss John Terry. Gary Cahill, though, is fit and that's a huge positive for the Blues."

    Man City v Chelsea (17:15 GMT)

    There were plenty of empty red seats at the Stadium of Light earlier today and there are a fair few light blue ones still showing at the Etihad as the teams emerge from the tunnel. Those that are in lob down some tickertape and loo roll to greet the sides.

    Clive Allen, at Cardiff City Stadium for 5 live SportCardiff 1-2 Wigan

    "Wigan were very impressive. They took the lead against the run of play, but when Cardiff responded and the equaliser went in they pumped the ball forward and Ben Watson thumped in his goal. If any goal deserved to win a game it was Watson's. The manager, Uwe Rosler, played every ball of the game, and they deserve to carry on in this competition."

    Robbie Savage, Final Score for BBC SportMan City v Chelsea (17:15 GMT)

    "I'm looking forward to this one. City have made a couple of changes, and Milner is playing because Chelsea can dominate on the counter-attack. But I still fancy Chelsea, looking at the two line-ups. And Chelsea's 16 is slightly stronger than City's."

    The line-ups in the dug-out might be worth considering as well. Jose Mourinho has lost just once in nine managerial match-up with Manuel Pellegrini - a run that spans their previous stints at Real Madrid and Malaga respectively.

    There are a few unfamiliar faces - and voices - in the press box at Etihad Stadium today, with a sizeable Catalan contingent in town a few days early to check out Manchester City's form ahead of that mouthwatering Champions League tie with Barcelona on Tuesday.

    From past experience of sitting next to them, Spanish and Catalan commentary teams talk quicker, talk more and talk louder than they do on these shores but BBC Radio 5 live commentary team John Murray and Danny Mills are ready to up the volume if they have to compete tonight. They are well prepared for a freezing cold evening too, by the looks of things.

    Clive Allen, at Cardiff City Stadium for 5 live SportCardiff 1-2 Wigan

    "A fantastic performance from the cup holders Wigan. They have come here and done a superb job. The goal that won it warranted them to progress to the quarter-finals. The manager Uwe Roser got it absolutely right tactically, and Wigan deserve to defend their cup for at least one round more."

    Football League update

    Chesterfield, who are top of League Two, continue to endure a difficult afternoon against lowly Torquay - finally finding the back of the net, but only after the visitors had taken the lead. Third-placed Oxford look like taking full advantage as they have opened up a three-goal lead against Mansfield while Rochdale are not too far behind either through their 2-1 lead over Morecambe.

  127. 16:35:  
    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at the Etihad StadiumMan City v Chelsea (17:15 GMT)

    On paper at least, it appears Chelsea will operate in the same way they did when they won at Etihad Stadium on 3 Feb, with John Mikel Obi and Nemanja Matic sitting in front of their defence in a 4-2-3-1 formation that will see Eden Hazard, Willian and Ramires all breaking with pace to support Samuel Eto'o.

    Manchester City also look likely to stick with their 4-4-2 formation they used, unsuccessfully, against the Blues. Only this time it is Javi Garcia who will operate behind Yaya Toure in central midfield, not Martin Demichelis, who struggled to cope with the pace of Chelsea's counter-attacks.

    With City facing Barcelona here in the Champions League in three days' time, the consensus in the press room was that is a stronger line-up than was expected from Manuel Pellegrini.

    Gary Lineker, former Tottenham and Everton striker and current Match of the Day presenter

    Both Man City and Chelsea have gone with strong teams. Bigger squads but lots of games to play with CL etc. Respecting a great competition.

    League One leaders Brentford look certain of three points after racing into a 3-0 lead at Crewe - Alan Judge getting his second of the afternoon and Adam Forshaw also on the scoresheet. Second-placed Wolves are 2-0 up against Notts County while MK Dons have equalised at home to Oldham.

    "The attendance at Deepdale today is 13,440, with 372 away fans. Hardly the 20,000 some had talked about but a considerable increase on the average gate. Most of them want to see the team in white pick up three points but the men from east London continue to lead 1-0."

    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at the Etihad StadiumMan City v Chelsea (17:15 GMT)

    Only a few minutes to go until the teams will be announced at Etihad Stadium, and there are a few questions to be answered: Will Chelsea be without both John Terry and Gary Cahill at the centre of their defence for the first time in any competition this season?

    Will Manchester City really persist with two strikers, as their manager Manuel Pellegrini has claimed, after they were outplayed in the middle of the park last time? Will Martin Demichelis play, and where? I am pretty sure Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho hopes the answer to those last two questions is 'yes' and 'in central midfield again'.

  150. 16:01:  
    Chris Bevan, BBC Sport at Etihad StadiumMan City v Chelsea (17:15 GMT)

    Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has been refusing to partake in Jose Mourinho's war of words this week and he sticks to his guns by making no mention of his Chelsea counterpart in his programme notes.

    Instead he focuses on his own team and says he is "not concerned" by the fact they have gone two games without a goal in a season where they have been otherwise prolific, pointing out that strike duo Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo have been playing while not fully fit. "I have no doubt we will start scoring goals again soon," Pellegrini said. "Hopefully starting tonight!"

  151. 16:01:

  153. 15:58: 
    Bournemouth 0-0 Burnley

    BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at the Goldsands Stadium: "A game of few chances on the south coast as second-placed Burnley take on their former manager Eddie Howe in his own back yard. The game survived an early morning pitch inspection but both sides have struggled to create chances in driving rain, while Bournemouth lost midfielder Eunan O'Kane to injury just before the interval. A long-range effort by Cherries defender Simon Francis is the nearest we've had to a goal."

    Dave Whelan

    FA Cup holders Wigan will be playing the 41st match of a season today against Cardiff. They have been to Russia and Slovenia in that hectic schedule, and with the Championship play-offs still within sight, you could forgive Uwe Rosler for wanting to soft-pedal on their FA Cup defence.

    There is no way that Dave Whelan would be happy with that though. He absolutely loved winning the trophy last year.


    Sunderland defender John O'Shea talking to BT Sport: "Gus Poyet said to the lads beforehand, make a statement. We have big games coming up, Craig Gardner's goal was fantastic and he does do it every day in training. Southampton had some very dangerous players and they have some quality but we had to be alive at the back and maybe the pitch helped us out a bit."

    match stats

    Southampton came on strong at the end with Kelvin Davis rushing up to try and get something on a late corner, but it was all too little, too late.

    Safely moored in midtable, that result leaves the Saints with nothing of note to play for the rest of the season. Except World Cup places for messrs Lambert, Lallana and Shaw.

    Sunderland almost catch out Southampton, who are predictably pushing forward for an equaliser. A simple ball over the top is collected by Jack Colback, who lays off the ball for Fabio Borini but the striker's low shot is pushed clear by Kelvin Davis.

  207. 14:31:

    Connor Wickham resembles George Weah as he wriggles past two markers deep inside his own half, sets off towards goal and advances into the penalty shot before dragging a low shot wide. He might have passed, he should have done better. Will the Black Cats regret that miss? Four minutes to go...

    "That miss from Lambert is a classic. It didn't just go over the bar by a yard, did it? That was about eight yards, and is actually really difficult to do. Lambert is absolutely gutted - he's waited so long for a chance, he got it, and he missed it."

    Sometimes it's just not your day. Nathaniel Clyne again puts a decent cross into the six-yard box and Rickie Lambert, presented with an open goal, somehow scoops over the bar. It was easier to score. Eight minutes left.

  215. 14:24:

    Cardiff v Wigan (15:00 GMT)

    Cardiff appear to have got the nod that winger Wilfried Zaha, on loan from Manchester United, is eligible to play as he starts. Zaha was an unused substitute in Manchester United's third-round defeat by Swansea. The Bluebirds, who have January signings Kenwyne Jones and Fabio cup-tied, make five changes from the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa on Tuesday.

    The Welsh club pulled out of a deal to sign Wigan defender Ivan Ramis in the January transfer window because of injury concerns and the Spaniard will be out to prove them wrong today as he starts. He is one of five changes by the Latics following a 3-0 midweek win at Sheffield Wednesday.

    Connor Wickham, unmarked in the centre of the penalty area, is inches away from connecting with Seb Larsson's fine cross before Southampton race up the other end and Rickie Lambert steers a header straight at the keeper after being picked out at the far post by Adam Lallana.

  221. 14:17: 
    Sunderland 1-0 Southampton

    Southampton's attacking play is desperately disappointing in this second half, this time Nathaniel Clyne getting into a decent position to swing in a cross from deep but the right-back's effort is straight into the arms of Oscar Ustari.

  222. 14:13: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Sunderland 1-0 Southampton

    Time for Sunderland to make a change, Gus Poyet sending on Connor Wickham for Ignacio Scocco.

  223. 14:12: 
    Sunderland 1-0 Southampton

    His side might be in the lead and looking fairly comfortable, but Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is still bellowing instructions from the sidelines as Lee Cattermole prepares to send in a corner. The midfielder puts a decent centre into the box, which is flicked on by John O'Shea but the Saints defence manages to stab clear.

  224. 14:06:

    Mauricio Pochettino has seen enough - the Saints manager sending on Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin to try and rescue the situation. Guly do Prado and James Ward-Prowse make their way from the sodden Stadium of Light pitch. Just under half an hour to go...

  228. 13:59: 
    Sunderland 1-0 Southampton

    As so often happens when you make a raft of changes, Southampton just can't get their passing game going in the second half - another bright move coming to an abrupt end as Sunderland, who are dealing better with a much-changed side, begin to take a real grip on the game.

    Sunderland v Southampton (1245 GMT)

    Sunderland boss Gus Poyet explains making nine changes to his team on BT Sport: "It's a mix of things. Players need to play, we need them for the rest of the season and it's a good opportunity. Also, we need to find partnerships. Santiago Vergini and John O'Shea want to play in the centre of the defence because they didn't play in midweek and the cup gives us those opportunities."

    "It would be a fantastic to get through, it's a great competition, the best in the world. But we already have two re-arranged games and another would be a disaster."

    League One preview

    The biggest game in the Football League today, possibly the country, is at Deepdale where Preston North End will pay tribute to one of England's greatest ever footballers, Sir Tom Finney, during their match against Leyton Orient. It's a big game for other reasons too, with the fourth-placed hosts hoping to cut the five-point gap between themselves and third-placed Orient.

    Leaders Brentford will hope to stay ahead of the rest with victory over Crewe, knowing Wolves, who are at home to Notts County, will be ready to capitalise on any slips.

    Promotion-chasing Rotherham host bottom-of-the-table Stevenage while, in the early kick-off, struggling Shrewsbury desperately need the points against Port Vale.

    Former Everton midfielder Kevin Kilbane: "The new man at Fulham (Felix Magath) says he has short-term goals and that's probably the best way to be in football. From what we gather he works the players very hard."

    Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler: "It seems like such a strange time to bring in a new manager at Fulham. It smells a bit of panic to me. They're desperate to stay in the Premier League."

    Championship preview

    It's a big day in the Championship, with Burnley knowing they have a good chance to try and reel in runaway leaders Leicester when they visit Bournemouth. The Foxes, who are not in action this weekend, are eight points clear of the second-placed Clarets.

    Down at the bottom, Millwall and Bolton are locked in a scrap for points at The Den while Blackpool, who have lost 11 of their last 14 matches in all competitions, will hope to halt their alarming slide down the table against a resurgent, play-off chasing Ipswich.

    Elsewhere, Birmingham host Huddersfield,Doncaster welcome Barnsley to south Yorkshire and Middlesbrough make the long trip down south to face Watford.

    Gary Fairclough: What strikes me about Tom Finney is the anecdotes about him I am hearing from many local clubs. He was a true football man.

    Flemming Jensen: Hopeless appointment by Fulham. No footballer should be subjected to Magath's style of "management".

    Chris Noble: Think Magath is a quality manager, but Rene should have been given more time. Decent performances against Man Utd and Liverpool

    FA Cup fixtures

    There is a stellar undercard as well with Roberto Martinez and former team-mate Garry Monk going toe to toe tactics-wise, Nigel Clough taking on former family business Nottingham Forest and at least two lower-league sides already assured of a place in the quarter-finals.

    Sunderland v Southampton (12:45 GMT)

    Cardiff v Wigan (15:00 GMT)

    Sheffield Wednesday P-P Charlton

    They duly paired up the Premier League's top four sides - Manchester City and Chelsea and Arsenal and Liverpool - and those ties have only got more intriguing since the draw was made.

    After a Jose Mourinho counter-attacking masterclass at the Etihad a fortnight ago and Liverpool turning Anfield into an abattoir for Arsenal. last weekend, we get to see all four go at it again over the next two days.
