Zabaleta sends City through

Published Add your comment

Pablo Zabaleta struck a late winner as Manchester City battled through to a place in the FA Cup fifth round with a 1-0 win over Stoke.

The Argentinian stabbed home from close range with five minutes of a tight contest remaining, securing a first win at the Britannia Stadium in seven visits. Yet victory may still have come at a cost for Roberto Mancini's men after captain Vincent Kompany limped off in the first half.

City had the better chances in the game with David Silva hitting a post and Stoke may have been lucky not to have Glenn Whelan sent off for a bad tackle on Javi Garcia.
