Manchester United's hopes of the treble ended in dramatic fashion as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley.

Veteran midfielder Paul Scholes was sent off in the 72nd minute following a lunge at Pablo Zabaleta and the 10 men could not get back in the game.

Yaya Toure's second-half goal sealed City's place in the final and improved their hopes of lifting a major trophy for the first time in 35 years.
