General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 Fulltime at the Britannia, and oh how important that last clearance was by Shawcross! Stoke hold on for a hard-fought point, while City might feel a little disappointed.
90' +3 What a clearance by Shawcross!! A ball is played long and high by City and Dzeko beats Begovic to the it and knocks it over his compatriot. The ball was just about to go over the line and back came Ryan Shawcross to clear.
90' +2 Great save by Begovic! Fantastic! Javi Garcia heads a corner towards goal and the Bosnian keeper gets down, tips the ball on to the post and then collects the rebound as it bounces towards him. Immense save.
90' +1 Owen didn't need very long to make an impact against City a few years ago for United, so maybe he can get a late winner for Stoke.
90' M. Owen enters the game and replaces P. Crouch.
E. Džeko enters the game and replaces M. Balotelli.
Two subs coming on, both No.10s as Edin Dzeko and Michael Owen enter the pitch.
89' Nasri involved again, this time he turns and shoots from the edge of the area, but Begovic saves and Shawcross heads away the rebound.
88' City shouting for a penalty as Nasri flicks the ball over his head before launching himself to the floor in desperation. Referee not convinced.
85' G. Cameron enters the game and replaces C. Adam.
Some more disappointment from Etherington as he smashes a deep free-kick behind when trying to find the head of Crouch. Owen continues to jog up and down on the side of the pitch.
83' The throw-in ended up seeing play move over the left, but Etherington's use of the ball was poor. City were soon on the counter-attack with Toure surging through the centre before picking out Silva. Eventually Stoke get a goalkick as Nasri's pass in the final third had too much on it.
82' Stoke have a throw-in in an attacking position, but there is no Rory Delap to take it.
