two silvers will Hughes and Roberto for Herrera will operate narrowly from the
left and right delaffei will support Dini
in attack a referee today his Kevin friend we do have var back in stock Lee
part where Andre Mariner will be keeping an eye on proceedings and making sure
that any big incidents game-changing incidents are reviewed and check the two
big scoreboards at either end of the ground will communicate that to the
supporters inside the stadium a stadium which is absolutely full a fog from the
pyrotechnics is just hanging over Wembley on this Saturday
as the yellow of Watford and the blue of Manchester City prepare
for an historic event as Hilton might say Troy Deeney will try to give them
some aggravation City have to have the discipline Saturday Night’s Alright for
fighting let’s get a little action in the fight for all the finals are
untoward sport from backe to Madrid from Porto to Leone but we start at Wembley
with the oldest final of them all the 138 they’re fake up final is live on
talks four and what could get us off and underway shooting from right to left in
the black and yellow stripes black shorts and black socks and it is the
light blue of Manchester City white shorts and white socks shooting from
left to right the big news before the game Stuart Pearce was that Sergio
agüero has been left on the bench will that be a decision that Pep Guardiola
comes to regret I think as just saying earlier it I think for me it’s a full
team main squad gameand you might have to come off the bench and have impact
and I think peps done this on occasion you know he’s made that odd surprise but
he’s kept everyone on their toes you and I ready apply any
sterling slaloms towards the edge of the penalty area the ball breaks towards the
left-hand side zinchenko tries to get across in takes a deflection and goes
behind for the first manchester city corner of the afternoon here on
talkSPORT the manchester city fans in the east end of the ground away to our
left-hand side about 30,000 of them here today the Watford fans defending that
goal which city are attacking a way to our right hand side a sea of yellow as
the cross comes in from the far side one couldn’t do it towards to the port he
heads the ball goal was it comes back out to the edge of the area it’s trash
goal words by Walker an offside flag surely would have gone up there
it’s jasoos had managed to connect with that but city are going to have to deal
with the Watford counter-attack here Pereira over the halfway line is chasing
a ball from delaffei but it breaks down and City recoveries the warp is strike
from the edge of the penalty area from that corner after it was first cleared
almost fell to Gabrielle chasers I think if he had have ended up turning into the
net there would have been an offside filet I’m thinking if Watford are going
to have joy to die it’s on the counter-attack but I call teams who play
against Man City they’ve got to be sleek they’ve got to be quick like City snuff
that one out and be interested gluer grab all his views on that on the
counter-attack football that potentially Watford my play well yeah there’s
there’s no doubt that you know despite the fact that everybody fancies
Manchester City Watford are not going to go down without making some noise
no but they need to make maximum damage I will break like that on Ferrara just
played a terrible bore okay the first time we touched it but you really have
got to make sure you punish them they’ve got the talent to do it those two up
there they have I mean dealer files been outstanding in the semi-final was quite
incredible really and he’s got to be the one that links between him the midfield
and Dini and carried a ball on occasion or make sure the past is right all is
all the way back without a sin away to our left-hand side Watford aiming to
become only the second team in 31 years to be first-time winners the others were
Wigan Athletic here is Emmerich Laporte over the
halfway line just left of the center circle finds Raheem Sterling who takes
it down the left he tries to take on the right fall back in he gopher menya and
the ball then runs out of play over on the far touchline level with the edge of
the penalty over back into gun doing man a city continued to try and construct an
attack across for the captain company was just above the center circle sent it
wide to Walker Walker further on when riyad mahrez is working for Italy comes
in field lays it back to Walker again it’s got Silber to a mass in the center
grab Rios on the shovel the last defender the port takes a couple of
strides forward and hits an ambitious effort and it goes behind the way for a
goal kick I think what’s interesting so far from me I think
Savi’s decided to man Marta to eight you know so it looks like he’s picking up
David silver and decors picking up Bernardo silver if he drops into those
pockets you know so they’re trying to stop them by not following the ball not
winning the ball just marking a man which is great if it works but normally
they they move past you well the way they defended in depth there are such a
numbers game there and those players are integral in receiving parties getting on
the off turn and then sliding that keep our scene inside your fullback startling
the pole and they’ve got is if they do defend too deep they’ll find themselves
in a situation where Dede becomes isolated but he’s won the ball on the
halfway line flipped it forward with a glancing header after a kick away by
Gomes comes back to de couro helps it on out to the left
here’s Roberto Pereira now taking on Karl Walker trying to get down the left
hand side for Watford attacking the goal away to our left onto Holly bass olive
as China darts his way between two monster City jerseys comes back to the
quarry sweeps it into the box and it away by David Silva and Manchester City
regain possession deep inside their own territory nil nil
the score we’re listening the talkSPORT we played four minutes and 42 seconds as
the ball goes out towards the left hand side and city now try to fashion an
attack with zinchenko zinchenko like she call him wind chinco really
Stewart because every time he’s played domestically this season he’s won with
Manchester City yeah he certainly yeah that’s not a bad record to hold and
last week when we covered the Bryant and going he was the one who caught my eye
especially early in the game I think he’s improving as time goes on as the
season goes on Marez tickles down the right touch light comes infield looks up
closer to Walker Walker holds on to the ball sends it by now Bernardo Silva
taking on Halle bats in the right wing position cuts onto his left foot than
his right then back onto his left again he’s favored left foot Walker then
teases it down the touchline for Marez who down by the pylon Patricia local
since the near post at mid Silva gets across the defender the Cathcart did
just enough to ensure it wasn’t a clean here expiring into the air it’s caught
by Aurelio Gomez I think it’s okay it’s okay defending in the depth at Watford
are but Dini the Fergus man up the pitch is almost on the edge of his box as well
so if it is cleared you’re gonna well you’ve got no choice but keep sustaining
attack so I think he’s got to pull up the pitch slightly I got me slightly
braver as new yeah I’m sure that’s that’s what he wants him to do but in
this occasion is strongly help out for many a down the right side across into
the box which spirals up the backers Inc Jenko outcomes Edison commandingly
collects it and then as he throws the ball into midfield kapu he’s there to
win it back Pereira trying to get there ahead of Walker once the game could Pooh
throws himself at the ball did that hit his hand in the centre of midfield I
think it did a free kick to City midway inside their own heart I think they’ve
got the legs I think Decorah could be huge in this game because he’s gonna do
that defensive role and it looks like he’s been asked to be release himself
and with the legs he’s got that the runs he can make that’s the way they’re gonna
try and support account were attacking to hit city when
they’re at their most vulnerable but I mean city look is just like the training
during exercise coming forward again down the right-hand side Marez into the
Bernardo silver pokes it across the six-yard box across comes Gabrielle
chases poking out his left foot trying to get it beyond Gomez but what bird
were diligent enough there to get it away but there’s a bit of an argument
going on amongst the defense who didn’t spot bernardo silver breaking round the
back and getting played in by Marez here’s the port coming forward as
manchester city look to try thee to turn the screw early on we played just over
seven minutes on taunts ball Marez moves towards the edge of the penalty area
Halle bass trying to ensure that he’s got a bit of support from Pereiro he
goes left to the port Lepore over to sterling who’s coming in round the back
of the defect and for many a look to put it out for a corner but Gomes came
across and stopped that from happening punched it from his goal line out
towards the far side it’s a way for a throw to appears yeah it’s a so we
speaking about Daini earlier you know in the last offensive phase he’s on the
first cut of grass outside the box so he’s not got the pace to get away from
anyone so he’s not drawing the team on to to open spiced up behind and I think
what could be going to find it very difficult to to get a foothold and play
out from the back in counter-attack if they don’t constantly defend this date
the referee game a helping hand there got in front of Troy Deeney and helps
sweep up for Manchester City and prevent any counter-attack Manchester City nil
Watford now on the FA Cup final live on top sport with the Sun football we live
it they are some side Manchester City 14 Premier League games in a row before the
end of the season as silver tries to pick a pass and thread it between Hughes
and Kapoor to the onrushing sterling who was making a run from outside to in from
the left into the middle but it was a little bit too heavy and it dribbles
behind in a way for a goal kick away to our right take the most important thing
in a game like this – obviously you know you don’t want to get caught up in the
situation – play it play in the event but never should you give someone time
on the ball to play forward you know you gotta get tight to people wood in
tackling distance and in a moment Watford aren’t they’re sort of giving
them almost too much respect well they’ve dropped so deep and we’re
talking about the entirety of the team being within 25 meters of their own goal
when they’re defending City is you rightly say I’ve got so much time on the
boat they’re waiting for someone to make a run and pick a pass I think there
should be almost an exclusion zone of probably 30 yards where you should be
snapping at players and you stopping and getting there and I think what could expect you to
have much of the ball in the game but what they need to make sure is they
don’t get snuffed out like a candle in the wind here’s Mario’s down the
right-hand side trying to get to the byline low cross in towards the near
post it’s repelled by cab car comes towards the byline then he smuggled
behind by Watford and it’s out for another Manchester City corner it’s
their second of the game you know what the way Watford a plane at the moment it
might take a goal against for them to play with a bit more freedom or you know
I think it’s really important you’re back for say to the lads in front get
off me I got him get out there put some pressure on that
ball it’s all right having your shape but you need to put them on under
pressure gauges at the corner into the near post that it’s headed away by Dini
who is back there helping out his defense he almost gets it a half way
before it comes back again and then down the left it goes from sin checker that’s
not a great pass and now the karez trying to spring clear and he set down a
fade away and Pereira’s waiting in the center the Carrera might be three here
he sends it through the Cathedral makes a big side with his back leg and it
comes out towards the near side before being smuggled by high water chance for
Watford to take the lead it was a manchester city corner kick at one end
and they rapidly counter-attack but ball went down the ride it was played on two
delaffei who got into a crossing position it was an early pass in towards
Pereira the Argentine who went towards the edge of the day tried to tuck it
under Edison but edison’s made a massive save there what a save that is this
fella has been sensational for them and just what we were talking about could we
see that break coming in the end yes because the quality they have what that
is a match winning saving unbelievable yeah no doubt about that he’s come out a
spread his body and the the yards he makes up so quickly as well to narrow
the angle was superb but Watford have just told Manchester City a you
overextend and take us lightly we’ve got punch as well Wow
what a safe that was from Manchester City’s goalkeeper piers Marez at the
other end as pets him come on the attacked to Bernardo Silva who tried to
saw these feet out on the edge of the area and drags his shot towards the near
post it’s an easy catch there but Aurelio Gomez city they will circulate
it they will keep hold of the ball or they’ve got to make sure is is that when
what the do break they keep the door shut behind them certainly they required
Edison there to make a big save and another long balls gone forward towards
the Corre a push on Dini he’s claimed his battle with companies
going to be interesting and referees are now play on it’s broken for manchester
city they’ve got it back again inside their own half and good to hood has
tried to push it out towards the left hands in Schenck OHS found sterling
sterling now just left at the centre circle swivels turns plays at him Phil
finds Gunther one who takes a couple of strides forward looks up pokes it on
towards damage silver out to the left again and zinchenko three waiting in the
area for the cross it’s in to all sterling almost scooted through to Jay
Zeus after sterling arced his body and it took a glance at the back of his head
and then it’s cleared out on the far side and a way for a City throw deep
inside Watford territory I think that’s going to do what for the ward a good
really settled and down hang on we are in this in this game we can do this
little warning that’s a bit of a punch on the chin that one Stu yeah it was as
as I sit here thrown all the punches leading up to that and in all of a
sudden what could have turned around I said you know what just be mindful Marez
entered the box from the right side left foot across which is an arcing in
swinger headed away by Craig Cathcart then comes out towards the near touch
line where Walker stops it from reaching Decor a and AB denied the curiae
imposing in venturous and one of the most highly rated central midfield
players in the Premier League may have a pivotal role here today here is Walker
out wide he’s just sent the ball into the feet of riyad mahrez who takes a
couple of steps forward waits hesitates allows Bernardo stick silver into some
space he crosses the ball towards the edge of the six yard box away by
Cathcart good header by him Walker misses up his clearance and then it
comes through by Pereira to Dini who’s found della feyo who’s racing away
through the center circle lost control of the ball that got away from company
they pulled it back because of an advantage telophase wanted them to play
on here Troy Deeney has been knocked to the floor in the halfway line the free
kick has been given but the Watford players who were leading the attack
thought that they were away and free Stu appears he’s not decision really he’s
played advantage and I thought rightly so well done and all of a sudden when
they was looking to get the head up to play the pass on the advantage he
stopped playing pulled it back that could have killed what for its game plan
should not mean the referees got to understand that this is gonna be the
counter attacking and I have a little look to your right I think he was more
concerned about jointing he not getting up than actually keeping his eye on what
was happening well they have a free kick now what PUD
if they’re going to do anything we’ll have to try and make as much from these
set pieces calf guards going to take it it’s a long raking ball right to the
edge of the penalty air from the mat former Manchester United man up towards
Troy Danny doesn’t reach him cleared away by zinchenko hoisted into
the sky and its back on halfway will Hughes
thereby David silver the polls run through the Bernardo silver and now
here’s Gabrielle jesu skating towards the edge of the bottle slips the Bible
moment Mary Apple with an intervention and then it’s cleared away by kiko for
many yet still City keep it in play with zinchenko far side and then vincent
kompany he now boldly takes the ball out towards
the right side Marez flicks it back a little bit casual but set pieces have
probably got to be a little bit better than match to it
yeah and they certainly have I’m wondering just saying will that be what
for his best opportunity of scoring a whole game and that’s the worrying thing
I mean fantastic gold keeping admittedly but it’s certainly been by far the best
opportunity of sport well it’s been the best opportunity for either Sun in this
game so far and we played 15 minutes on talk sport here is Marez / manchester
city looking to complete that historic first domestic men’s treble swings
across it bounces up hollow pass and goes out for another corner can I just
mention it annoys me game after game you’re playing a team that when when
they get it white they used Boyan fullbacks get interest you it toys
me insane it does it’s almost there air of safety in numbers but you’ve got to
be effective in those numbers is the corner and it’s fingered by her Elio
Gomez but it doesn’t get proper contact on it it runs out towards the far side
city still have it and it’s turned back in thighs in chenko who looks up finds
David Silva David Silva now with three steps forward before releasing Josue’s
back into damage Silva centerfield once again he swirls it out to the right
brought down brilliantly just in from the touch line by Marez the algerian
runs at the fallback gets the ball and a little deflection on the cross it comes
through helped away by the retreating capo then picked up inside his own area
by delaffei who tries to play his way out after a few nervous moments
eventually Watford managed to get it up and 20 yards outside their area before
it comes back again with Marez heading the ball to Bernardo silver and city are
back in control of the game and that seemingly has been the way of things so
far 71% possession for City 29 for Watford I think that’s going to be the
pattern of it sound to be honest and there
so well rehearse it is and the longer that pets there the better they’re going
to get it so you know for me just get as you can as the ball arrives it’s true
Mara’s again towards the edge of the Erick clipping a ball high and over the
top of everybody and out of play and into the watford fans always wear right
hand side well happy Grazia was on the well the FA Cup party show with Laura
woods and Craig Mitch she did an interview with Jim white at the team
hotel earlier they played that out in that show and happy gratia said during
that that he wanted his team to go out today and make history he cited the one
nil victory he managed when he was in charge of Malaga against Barcelona one
nil it finished on the day that may well be their best hope I’m sure he thinks
their best hope lies was sitting not scoring a goal here’s Pereira down the
left hand side trying to get and into a wing position he cuts it past Walker
Walker got enough on the border spirit Tamara’s that’s good defending by Walker
but his clearance isn’t great and it goes straight to for many who’s just in
front of the center circle Watford have possession again 18 minutes played on
talks ball in the FA Cup final Stuart Pearce Ian Holloway and Sam had a face
inside the stadium here bringing you live coverage of the big event of the
day the ball sent forward up over the halfway line looking first sterling but
he wasn’t enough on the past there but it was a real opportunity that for
masticity to break out five Raheem Sterling there was an awful partial wall
Kroger site anywhere long and Raheem Sterling’s in he’s ended up
what he done he’s trying to fight one in and it’s it was you know at least 20
yards show well I find amazing when it’s Manchester City everybody talked about
howdy pass the ball for me they’re the best at closing you they do not they if
you give them time in your word right their past and they do not do that to
you they know how to press and now that close you constantly and I think that’s
the biggest difference everybody talked about only brilliant with us with the
throw into the penalty area long raking one which is brought down by Dede can’t
get it under control at the second attempt city can’t clear at the moment
it’s come back again for many a cap on what could have the ball city trying to
get out here but the ball is played down the left by Cathcart probably who’s
closed down so quickly by Bernardo silver there they didn’t have the touted
by the past as I support I’m point them trying to meet they realized that if you
if you put someone under pressure if you gave my wife five yard she’s not bad but
if you get in her face she can play so that’s what they do to you all the time
you watch it here they go again and again it’s unbelievable Jase this
time putting pressure on Mary a purr on the halfway and I marry a poor turning
round to Pereira and saying make some space for a pass the Paul is up towards
the Argent on who takes it out the sky pretty well can’t get beyond Marez then
Walker sees it back to his goalkeeper is pretty handy with his feet being closed
down by Hughes it’s no bother for him and company then placing it around the
corner past Pereira into Walker Walker though just daughters on the ball
slightly gets into a right format position then tries to get it away
Karara who puts it out he was dispossessed there for a second it has
gone out for a manchester city throw but Walker was the weak link in that chain I
just wonder what Walker’s future is well you hopefully bright but I think you
think he was a little bit sloppy last week at Bryant and I thought he was the
one player that stuck out that probably wasn’t fully at it and you know can be
stopped here on occasions but he is in the nation’s league squad but there’s
quite a few bright backs in that notions League squad Trent Alexander Mark Joe
Gomez could play there as well here in trivia
I think Alec Alexander Arnold’s probably one of the best ads I’ve ever seen it is
his crossing his perhaps new sensation well we played down 20 minutes you
listening to talk sport and it’s the FA Cup final
Manchester City Neil Watford nil here is Mary a purr trying to get the ball on up
to Dini goes up towards Dini who wins that battle in the port the second ball
is blocked by delaffei oh that’s a platform from which to build now he runs
forward centrally plays it out by Pereira runs up to Walker back in field
to Hughes back out to the left-hand side that’s up
inside the area Texan ground company runs into traffic comes back to the
close you certainly don’t like it the caller has got running back to Kevin
crane and said to him it’s got to be a penalty is welcome to var there is going
to be a yellow carpet ocurro for over-over protesting but they’ll be
interesting to see the replay here Ian Holloway it looked it from here Sam why
no we’re quite quite high up in a long way away but it definitely looked like
whoever it was another one of these annoying things it is it is it
deliberate well it struck his hand it looked like it was on target here see
what Drecker not from they mate I think credit
companies come out he’s turned he’s body side on but sprayed and I think he’s
arms too too close to his body I I think this was a Champions League game that
would have been a penalty it being the FA and Premier League rules were
applying here there’s no way that that is going to be given as a penalty it’s
definitely not a clear and obvious error here is Marez down the right hand side
no check even for a mobile there will be a check but there was no review from the
VAR as the ball goes down the right hand side picked up by chases trundles into
the area down by the bar line needs to get a cross in here takes a deflection
on the way through Gomes doesn’t commit properly he ran into traffic
Raheem Sterling was trying himself at the ball it was a condition on the edge
of the six yard box a free kick has been given in Gomez’s favour but it was a
little bit fortunate the goalkeeper there what a leap out Saul is it how did
he get that high was there a trampoline there eat us
unbelievable what a little look that is a leap I think the one
thing is of work we’re Rahim before he’s a tough little so-and-so you know low
center of gravity punches he’s white and more I’m sure
let’s go answer the touchline because the Moose is down behind the dugouts for
us this afternoon what’s the atmosphere like yeah the atmosphere is great out
here behind the Watford major players near here the players not playing they
knew that wasn’t a penalty the manager is so different so Manny Gracia looks
smart and his navy suit whereas Pep Guardiola has been up and down like he’s
got ants in his pants he’s got slacks on and a jump all right
more more expensive like goodbye why isn’t he wearing a suit it’s called a
that is a very good question superstition moose although I bet you
any money you like and I’ve googled one of peps jumpers it will cost more than
any suit that I’ve got I’ll bet you ain’t bought it from Giacomo because
that’s the only place the moose goes in it have you seen me it’s unbelievable
Jimmy Barra is down the right-hand side back
in field it goes to Walker Walker now progressing forward where a couple of
yards in from the right touch time Marez tries to open up the very disciplined
Watford defense they’re strung along the line of the 18 yard box as the port now
picks it up he runs forward with a bullet speed into J Zuzu spirals away
from familiar than it’s out towards the left hand side picked up again by
zinchenko sterling and then they’re being forced back here by Walt but this
is good defending by Watford and you know they’ll tick off a little box here
24 minutes gone a quarter of the game is over and it’s still nil nil that’s Paris
and that’s what we’re looking for you know what if I was Watford at this
stage having a clear-cut chance at goal with a one on one and a couple of
skirmishes how big quite happy would await it was the first 20 or minutes are
gone Walker into Marez tries to roll the defender only half player comes back to
Bernardo Silla into Jay Zeus who spins and shoots and it hits the defender Mary
you’ve got there quickly and he deflected it over the top of his own
crossbar and it’s out for another Manchester City corner that was an
opportunity and there was a moment of panic inside the defense I got go back
to the moose boy the last time I saw him with a plate full of food I thought you
brought the whole buffet back mate that’s how much II can eat absolutely
scary I’m not jokin I’ve got quite sizable buffer as well here is David
Silva moving towards the edge of the areas in chenko with a low ball which
takes a little deflection it might run to the Kuro here who does get it then
kick it long Edison is sweeping up 30 yards outside his goal he gets a header
away it comes to Bernardo Silva what excellent sweeper keeper in here is
Bernardo sovereign again from Juarez across come Hughes and snuffs out the
danger and then to curry on the halfway line trying to keep possession for
Watford but very quickly loses it to Bernardo silver or the sterling five
yards back from the edge of the area tries a shot hits the air comes back to
damage silver sterling Windsor header comes to damage silver left set of the
six yards david silva scholars for manchester city
to put them in trance than the stake in midfield by at the ludic or a and very
very quickly Manchester City fashion and opportunity
which was snaffled up by David Silva on the volley underneath the goalkeeper to
make it Manchester City won Watford nil and maybe 2019 is going to be a very
very good year for Manchester City well you can’t give the ball away in those
areas with City on three on two in their own box and thence to City players are
winning haters in the penalty box myself I put six five foot seven you can’t do
that I think that goes down to the overall plan of Manchester City this is
an absolute disguise he talked about born a brilliant with the ball but he in
the dress room can we get air can be closed can we win can we press can be
forced mistakes and once you’d win it that high up you’ve only got one or two
things to do yeah you’ve got to par season in your assured Gulf now let’s
get after the most because the reaction to that goal was rather interesting
watching pet and Gabrielle Jay Zeus their pep guardiola I don’t think he
celebrates goals that most people do Sam I really
and I was quite interested in reaction with Gabriele Zeus also happy a Gracia
was turning around to his bench I think he feels really disappointed as you said
they got Sakura and into the game and because either the gold went well in it
I think he’s really disappointed with a way that especially the core I didn’t
really get involved in defending that goal David Silva has not scored in 2019
until that moment 26 games without a goal he’s got one now here on the left
hand side is sterling into silver once again zinchenko with a cross into the
penalty area only half clear picked up my Pereira hooks it over his shoulder
comes back towards Gooden to a new strikes it forced a sterling inside the
area they smuggle it behind with gaff car picking it behind the goal on the
way for a corner kick over on the far side that Manchester City are putting
the pressure on here and you just wonder if they were to get a second here it
could be real problem for for Watford what foot need to see this pick out now
yes they’ve gone behind but you don’t want to stuff in knocked out of you and
they really got to show some character I think they’re the disappointment I’m
having a chance to break and giving it away is is that they’ve got forget that
here is the corner over on the far side to be taken by gun duel companies making
a move towards the near post it’s aimed towards Laporte it’s touched away by
Gomez but only enough on it to get it into the right wing position as city
look at it Mara’s chops it onto his left foot his shot is well over the top and
it’s a way for a goal kick a weight around right hand side this could be a
key period this 16 minutes before half-time
Manchester City lead with that goal from David Silva it’s scored 7 in his
previous 15 before his worst run without a goal for 8 years and I don’t think you
mind not scoring goals if your team go on to
win the League Cup the Premier League and you get the one that puts them ahead
in the FA Cup final east on his job chasing pressing keeping the ball
bouncing it around the blokes are genius I think one of the best players I’ve
seen in the in the last 10 years without a shadow of a doubt the bloke is
absolutely on and off the field a brilliant Pro how do what could react
to this to it well as all he said they’ve got a steady to shape
straightaway these next few minutes in the game when you’ve conceded you’ve got
a steady of the shape they’ve got to make sure that I don’t know what the
game plan is going in it will be counter-attack but stay in the game
that’s the important thing and don’t lose track
you had a few efforts in skirmishes around city’s goal
Manchester City won Watford nil on talks board and the free-kick has been given
to Watford just in front of the centre circle away to our left will Hughes was
fouled and they didn’t make the most of the last opportunity they had in this
area Watford they’ve got to make sure they do this time I think one of the
other things as well saying that it just bent out there you cannot lose the ball
when your team aspirate to ply here Deenie ring wins the initial header and
it’s cleared away by Marez then picked up by Paul Abbas all the way back to his
goalkeeper Gomes again that said please didn’t fashion anything for Watford who
trailed by a goal to nil to damage Silver’s 10th goal of the campaign
almost a wobble by Kapoor on the edge of his own penalty area got to be a little
bit careful there Bernardo Silva was shutting him down he has found the pass
up to delaffei who’s got away from David Silva oh he hasn’t because Silver’s want
it back and it’s up very quickly toward the edge of the box
Josue’s on the Sterling cutting it on his right foot gonna set up silver here
but it was the back heel was a little bit telegraphed and it allowed for many
of the come across and pushing out-of-plane away for a throne on the
far side i would love to be a fly on the wall in their training ground i don’t
believe they practiced that much of the passing I think the manager will expect
them to do that there is the shape you’re in this is what we do but he will
hammer anyone who doesn’t immediately start to press the ball when they lose
it yeah the cooking for me there and you should give us a nudge as it happened
silvers just run 30 yards to go and put a press on he didn’t look over his
shoulder once he didn’t care what was behind him he just went and dealt with
what was in front of him because he knows they’re all going to go with him
because that’s their job dakarai picks it up just over the halfway line left
hand side engaged by company gauged by bernardo silver and walker to couldn’t
go anywhere with it and manchester city once again strangle what the de temps
are trying to break out and it’s picked up on this near side bernardo Silva on
Tamara’s just over the half have bound away from Halle box remember
they want they semi-final just by one goal simeon towards the end of the
season very much that as the score line that was seen very often to nil one nil
Manchester City as they went on that run that saw them over the line in the
Premier League but they are in the lead here courtesy
of damaged silvers gold throw into manchester city level with
the edge of the Watford penalty area the Watford players complaining that they
thought that was a Watford ball and Kevin friend now speaking Detroit Dini I
think there’s an issue here with Halle bass who does get a little bit
hot-headed at time and Dini has been called across to try and call the
situation down yeah as I say it definitely was a Watford fro I I can
sort of sympathizing in some respect but just settling the situation down the
referee over the chat with both the player and the skipper
mister Stane that’s a darkest is the assistant on this near side who was
being bellowed at by halle bats I think he didn’t make the wrong decision Holly
bass let him know about it did brunette and stones have been
warming up down in front of us as City come forward again with zinchenko just
to the right in good doin good no one gets in out his feet flicked it towards
jaysus get a shot away block by Mary Apple who got in front of him and then
the attempt to trying to get the ball out and up to someone who can hold on to
it goes straight through to the pause and he sees it all the way back to his
goalkeeper and what could have got to make sure that they take care of the
ball when they do get it away and if they can’t find delaffei you or dealing
that is going to be a big problem the one big thing i’ve noticed with
manchester city’s ply over this season probably more than anything they stick
to the game plan there’s no panic in their in their players there’s
alternatives on tomorrow’s who’s miss kicked it but it’s come through to walk
on the right edge of the penalty area are absolutely right there here he is
trying to get down towards the bar line he bumps into Pereira
still got it though who occurred the worker at Manchester City throw here
is Marez from Bernardo Silver’s toss into the edge of the penalty in Marez
once again onto Bernardo silver right side onto his left foot strokes the ball
into the D Gundam was waiting then he sent it on down on the right bejesus
who’s trying to go beyond the goalkeeper the upside flag is
but something just anything to cheer about I’ve seen them struggle in the
last two years a couple of times I think Bristol City in Cup last season they did
things to them that Man City do to everyone else by pressing and a full-on
press all the time they do that to you you know and they’re so good and it must
be so destroying when you try and do it you only go ones and twos and they play
around you as good as they are but they don’t allow you to have time on the
board and I think that’s the secret to this great mindset inside as you rightly
say there’s two sides of the game the beautiful football they play in
possession and the outer possession work which is tireless talk sport supports
the work of cross neck cancer UK visit prostate cancer UK dot or forward slash
football to find out how you can help and together we can stop prostate cancer
killing a man every 45 minutes just have a little look at kapo’i number 29 I just
think he’s lost his way a little bit and they’re going Dini come back in the last
attack and just had a word with him about something he doesn’t seem to be
bright you know when someone’s dry on the football pitch he seems to be sort
of powerful a jogging across I gotta be honest I’ve been in that in that role
that central role and when I played with Ray Wilkins he used to let me do a lot
of the Chasen and then the work and I’d give him the ball and he was fantastic
at it it’s most against people like this the far post looking to find sterling it
goes over his head takes a deflection and goes out for another corner and
why’d you get lost what what happens his body language to me is telling me
someone who’s lost a little bit of heart in the game
you actually feel like there’s more players out there then when you’re going
and they pop it round you and you start to get humiliating you know a little bit
like the old bull fight they don’t just they don’t just tease the ball today
they just keep him going and going and going in the end they put them in mercy
and ten minutes before half-time here’s the corner it’s delivered deep towards
the far post headed back by the port into the central area of the penalty box
licks over his head by chases company still up there he nods it down Kapoor
then chess it brings it away not the greatest of clearance picked up by Jesus
who’s turned it over again and Manchester City come forward once more
they lead by a goal to nil on talkSPORT the ball now who’s in chenko inside the
centre circle David Silva the goalscorer back to company and then back to the
port once again good doing strides forward it’s on to Walker Walker tries
to move the ball down the right touch line Marez now trying to get into the
box he goes past all the bats then comes back the other way low cross into the
near post blitz away by Cathcart and it’s helped out towards this near side
and it’s a way for a throw back in again by City they quickly moved the ball into
a central area Marez to Walker Walker to zinc Janko zinchenko scales back from
the edge of the box when he shoots it takes a deflection into the air almost
took the block off no dream marry Appa and it goes out the
way for another corner kick whether the big deflection Sam in these last couple
of minutes I’m looking at the Watford players demeanor they drop him back into
shape but there’s no real energy to their press they almost look as though
city of just ground them down if you like here’s the corner quickly taken
short to silver and then he whips the ball back in there comes off a defender
and out of playing away for another corner kick and they are keeping the
pressure on they are trying to squeeze Watford’s life out of them and they’re
trying to make sure that this job is done
ruthlessly and efficiently let’s see what happens from this corner another
girl before half-time and I think one further in serious trouble here is the
corner in towards the near post rising towards it was company he didn’t reach
him it went over his head it’s cleared by Watford but it reaches delaffei Oh
then comes straight back again down the left is good to win for manchester city
trying to get to silver silver back to cone doing down the left side Kapoor
comes across and eventually it’s tidied up by king of Romania and cleared up
towards delaffei Oh delaffei oh just puts a little bit of a challenge Eaton
on damage sill but just to let him know that he’s still around and still up for
the fight you can’t you can’t do what they’re
doing it in a minute but not o silver off your ball into Joseph’s because as
it passed a fucking threat to Raheem Sterling to yard and he touches hit home
J Zeus will take the applause whether or not even cross the line before it reads
whipping sterling will have to be determined by the GDS but it was a
pinpoint ball from bernardo silva to dig out the run of Gabrielle Jace’s who went
to the violin and pulled it back across the base of goal and Raheem Sterling had
the simplest of tappings to make it and just a city to Watford nil and now they
can see that domestic treble in sight let’s see what the demeanor of the
Watford players picked it up a few minutes ago I just think they’re all fat
it look we got sterling in the middle of the guy who pulls over the line anyway
before sterling touched it in but players have just stopped down with
their runners it’s almost assailing they lost confidence in what they’re trying
to achieve as a team well like you can’t give bernardo silver the ball to get his
head up to have a touch to look up ten yards outside your 18 yard box you can’t
do that he’s too good for them you know you God keep working you God keep
getting tight to work whoever whoever the ball’s going to and in a minute this
could be horrific for Watford could I think Gummy’s didn’t cover himself in
glory there either by the way gabriele Jesus has been given the goal
we haven’t seen the GDS year the goal decisions system but I think it was
sufficiently over the line before Raheem Sterling touched it even further into
the net but he’s on the pole now racing forward at speed towards the edge of the
Palantir on the left hand side is a Zeus the right is Marez Marez is the one who
picks it up counters into the box on his left foot on his right gets the shot
away peridot by Gomes and pushed out and away for a corner kick they’re in
trouble here after that early skirmish where they nearly scored Watford spin a
stroll in the park from Maine City I’ve got a site and what flix heads it down
at this moment in time I’ve got some classic Cup Finals over the last few
years sir this is very one-sided Manchester City putting their foot on
the accelerator as we reach halftime the ball out on the right hand side with
Mario’s then tapping Silber a low ball into the box might come through the
company doesn’t reaches delaffei instead and he tries to get away but he can’t
get away he’s tough backed by Goodwin and a free-kick is given to Watford deep
inside their own territory it’s a few of the Watford players as well the body
language of course you’ve mentioned already but they’re losing their cool a
little bit as well that’s what happened do you lose we’ve
lost momentum you you it’s a big big day is a huge occasion you want to try and
be add to your clubs history and make history and then all of a sudden you you
had a chance to break which should have been practicing all week you give the
ball away and you’re one down before you know it you’re then two down and what
you do is stop doing the basics which is getting towed to people that was a
cutthroat ball from Bernardo silver that set up that second goal here’s Dini
though inside the area winning the first head of the Qura gets it back to him he
can’t get it under control and it snapple dart by Edison and it will be
cleared away a weight around that hand side the Moose is on the touchline what
was the reaction to the second goal and if there be any reaction only watford
bench to what looks like a bit of left achieved from some of their players no I
mean that that seems to be now going through the manager as well and I cut
he’s not looking like he’s really got a spark about him meanwhile pep he looked
at the second goal winner sat down now he’s back up again and berating his
seeming to get the ball away and so I’m gonna go and tell him they’re on the
verge to the treble and I think he knows that I did that’s why they’re on the
verge of the trevor non-friendly winning is addictive
I want hungry players he said in the morning papers here is in chenko down
the left-hand side a deep ball towards the far post headed away by Halle bass
it comes to Mara’s and the pressure from Pereira who’d managed to get the ball
away and find the core a ton to Dini can’t help it on to Pereira and they
can’t get out of their own harm here and that’s been pretty much the tone of the
tape 72% possession for manchester city 28 for Watford 8 shots for manchester
city of which to be on target and they are the two goals that separate the two
teams with three minutes to go before half-time Jason David silver with the
strikes and manchester city are on the verge of history i think this sums it up
here son they rest with the ball while they go to work when they lose it
because every time what forget it there’s four or five players sprinting
up and if they might you might find someone with a bit of space all of a
sudden someone’s closed into every plays it – there’s a man sitting and there
outnumbering you wherever it is and it is bordering on genius you know and I
gotta say Liverpool have done it as well with klopse way of doing it this is
modern football they squeeze you in one out and they don’t let you out as a city
to nil up against Watford in the FA Cup final live on talkSPORT with a Sun
football we live it here is David Silva down the left looking birds in chenko
his first time ball for the 6-yard Aires cut out by Marriott picked up on the far
side and for many are trying to twirl his way out of a congested penalty area
eventually finds delaffei oh he’s almost at the right fullback position and he
gives the ball away too good do it and good – and now turns it on for
manchester city who again can just rest with the balls – appears as a sigh
they’re brilliant City pressing high taking a sting out
the game when they turn it over and they think tight place of games you know
which is fantastic might be a long old day for both Manchester City this is
their 61st game of the season here’s Stirling down the left-hand side
ball in towards the near post it’s cleared away but picked up by Kundu and
right on the edge of the 18-yard box and immediately they turn it over it could
be a very long next 45 minutes for the oldest average starting 11 in the
Premier League in Watford here is Marez down the right side back in field –
bernardo silver bernardo silver on – company company back to the port and
they’re just playing triangles inside Watford territory and they’re trying to
break forward here with bernardo silver across comes follow bus in the left form
a position he will clear and it’s picked up by Pereira
and now what for trying to fashion something but they can’t because they’re
in a Manchester City straightjacket it’s exactly exactly what the plan is I
remember a few years ago had the biggest smile ever when he beat Arsenal at
Arsenal and I’ll never forget what he said at the end of the game we play I’m
so proud we came here with my team and we stopped the best pass in team in
England every four seconds every four seconds and he just had a big smile from
inside the area played him by delaffei Oh tries to get it back to him comes
back to Hughes who cracks wanton chenko away back to the edge of the area and
kicker for menya thinks he’s got a corner here because he’s hit one from
the edge of the year it took a deflection it’s gamba high and it is a
corner and it is through first Watford corner of the game they might have to
get a goal back very very shortly to have any opportunity India in this tie
but you’ve got to go back to the semi-final where Watford looked dead and
buried to be fair with a few minutes to go and turn that one round so never they
draw on some of that said well Carla bass is just wandering over towards the
far side this is the first corner they’ve had in the match they’ve got to
get this set piece right they had two free kicks deep inside city territory
didn’t make the most of them this one they have to make the most of us the
ball comes in from the left and our key one in towards the near post and up
there was Mallory a prayer he got there ahead of Edison who didn’t claim it but
he couldn’t get on target here’s delaffei weaving his way into the box he
runs into jaysus and joseph´s in the m brings it clear and gets it up as far as
the Argent time / arrows turned it over again still what for coming forward here
kapoor they need to be careful with the ball Cathcart
now Hughes who’s midway inside manchester city territory over on the
right-hand side the ball is with Holly bass again can he get the cross in here
no he it’s a poor delivery and now they’re in
trouble because they’re breaking away Manchester City and it’s up with Walker
on half way he didn’t spot dollar that’s coming from behind casual from him again
there’s the halftime whistle and Manchester City lead by two goals to nil
and if it continues like this Manchester City who have got goals in
that first half from damage silver and Gabrielle Jay Zeus will become the first
English club to win 50 games in a season just another record but this won’t be
just any other triumph what could have come back at Wembley before but they
need an absolute miracle and order to do so this afternoon because at halftime
its Manchester City to Watford nil it’s making life hard for themselves yet
again here at Wembley what a first half for Manchester City next weekend of
course we got the playoffs for you all of them live across the network of
talkSPORT and then Baku with Chelsea and Arsenal and then we got Madrid and we
got the little matter there of Liverpool and Spurs and then we’re on to the
nation League semifinals and hopefully final with England all of that to come
over the next couple of weeks on talk sport well they just squeeze the life
out of you don’t they it’s frightening it’s brilliant it’s genius and the
simplicity of it as a coach there’s the positions I want you in I’ll
get you to up to the edge of your box you use your skin and move it will
keep the ball moving look to outnumber of people and then when you lose it win
it back within four seconds every one of you
I think the owl half was summed up to emphasize all his point about how hard
they work but not o silver in front of us two minutes ago
chase one Dale chased another chased another and ended up following Hughes on
a run over the far corner from that they broke on Walker couldn’t find a pass but
because he’s put pressure on three players absolutely right on all of that
just one thing for me as well on the other end of the field you know they’re
going to close you down quickly they do give you a chance but there’s just a
feeling in the Watford players and they’ve had a couple of chances they
perhaps just been too deliberate they’ve not quite somehow managed to get the
ball from out under their feet or into a position to get that strike on goal well
it didn’t look like that on the first chance they had to break well that was a
completely different yeah though the keeper was brilliant that moment they’re
not stupid they’ve seen these this team they’ve seen what Manchester City they
played against them before they watched them they have they’ve won 14 games in a
row they’re not stupid these lads now because they see everything and they
thought you could see it the second that got blocked and they keeper made of
saying what you’d see a totally different Watford if that would have
been things over 1 nil here you go and those things really you have to believe
that you can do this do they believe they can do this I’m not sure at a
minute’s do well I think they did only before you know all of a sudden I’m
looking at Kapoor and he’s not pressing when he shouldn’t and there was one or
two sore talking to each other and the body language just endured the energy
drained out the team of Watford in what they were trying to achieve and say
listen if someone needs to Becky in there and it’s a team like maincity all
of a sudden you think oh my goodness play whenever still has been outstanding
again as he has for most of the season as me well him and David silver for me
I’d you know is there to better some footballers in the world I’m not
sure this is some real Xavi Iniesta let me know many more players is this
manager gonna make great you know and I do believe it’s him he’s making them
great they were good anyway I think he’s making them fantastic just a quick word
about another big story at the moment perhaps not the most unexpected but
brightening the whole talks now with grandfather from Swansea they’ve
triggered that release clause in his contract which is worth around three
million pounds so mister and then followed by Swansea looks as if he’s on
his way to right thought on that um yeah I’m just I’m old school I think Chris
utans done a brilliant job myself did they move forward
they’ve got Glen Murray scoring them goals he’s 35 36 you know I’m a little
bit disappointing obviously good luck to whoever they give it to but for me
old-fashioned Chris shootin fantastic manager I would have kept going with him
well they don’t trade quite a Serb hard on the metal exchange with silver as
they do with goals but it’s sterling silver all over the place winning this
one and he set down a fail away and
Pereira’s waiting in the center the Carrera might be three here he sends it
through the Gulf guru makes a big show with his back leg what a save
that is Pereira inside the area Texas Brown company runs into traffic comes
back to the close certainly there like it it looked it to me or sir
not for me mate comes back to damage silver sterling Windsor head comes to
damage silver left set up the sick david silva scores for manchester city
to put them in France now those silver hospitality yard and he
touches he home chasers will take the applause but it was a pinpoint ball
turbinado silva to pick out the run of Gabrielle chases who went to the viola
and poured it back across the face of goal of Raheem Sterling and the simplest
of champions to make it and just a city to Watford nil and now they can see that

the FA Cup final Manchester City vs. Watford live from when being absorbed
sport well here at halftime while everybody getting a bit of refreshment
and actually just in wonderment really of Manchester City and the way that
they’ve played all season and continued to do so in that first forty five and
wondering if there’s any way back before Watford at halftime here though but
Oldham Athletic are the winners of the Emirates FA Cup giant-killing
Awards after their cut shot this season the lead to club beat off competition
from AFC Wimbledon a Newport County and Barnet to win the award for their 2-1
win against Fulham in the third round and the long side that as well at the
moment the presentations are being made as well to all of those who’ve done so
much good work for clubs within the whole area and for some fantastic
categories as well everything from youth disability mix to adult male and adult
female and the likes of Maidstone United and who are yura that’s the United
Manchester whites and Whitehorse and Aston sharks and others all having their
moment down there pictures everybody picks up their own little trophy as well
so we’re terrific everybody involved with that so those dressing rooms very
different I mean for pep guardiola it’ll be a similar case I can’t imagine for a
moment that he’ll say that this one is one because he’s not like he’ll be
having a right go about the golden unis conceded could guarantee you you know
when it’s going as well as it does you could pick on something you could make
sure that they they know how you feel about I just want to bring into that
matter face here got some more breaking news I just wanted to tell you that that
goal that Manchester City score the second goal is now officially a rocky
sterling goal I thought at the time it wasn’t over the line and GDS has now
officiated and said it wasn’t over the line and it is a Raheem Sterling rather
than a Cabrio Joseph’s got one thing we have
actually talked about here was the effort that was blocked by a company
that was going was on target and the chat there was also as you rightly
pointed out some in Europe come if that was the Champions League final that’s a
penalty that’s how confusing all of this is
though and I know that company sort of kept his arm close but he turned his
body and it was his arm that stopped that ball going into the back of the net
and I think that’s something that that’s just not the only thing but there will
be a couple of differences between the way that the Europeans do var and the
way that we do var which the players are going to have to get used to I was with
Danny Rose yesterday and he still doesn’t believe that the Hamm ball that
he was adjudicated to have committed in that Champions League quarter-final
first leg against Manchester City should have been a penalty but in Europe we
knew that that was going to be the case because that’s how they decide that’s
how they view a handball here we’re a little bit more lenient and I don’t
think we would ever give that as a penalty kick okay thanks for clearing
that up well at halftime here it’s Manchester City as they have been for a
lot of this season everywhere and on this occasion Watford at the moment in a
little nowhere land as far as Bethpage black goes at the halfway stage it’s
Brooks koepka who is everywhere and everybody else nowhere to seven shots
clear of Jordan speith overnight 12 under par there’s only one man to talk
to the voice bob boubker hey guys I tell you what listening to
you tell me that Bruce kept those seven shots clear I’m saying that can’t be and
I’m sitting right here at Bethpage black an incredible performance for the first
36 holes let’s put it in perspective it’s the lowest anybody’s ever shot for
32 holes in a PGA Championship it also is the widest margin of lead seven shots
nobody’s had a seven-shot lead but it’s going to be a big day for Justin Rose
he’s gonna start nine shots back I don’t know if he could get all the way to the
top of the mountain but he certainly could make an effort
Matt Wallace is gonna shot start one shot back
better at minus-4 of course the big news is that Tiger Woods did not make it to
the weekend but you gotta wittmeyer Bruce kept good he’s won three of the
last seven majors if he goes on to victory here which is certainly
anticipated at this juncture that would make it four of a babka at the PGA
Championship here at Bethpage back can I just ask you one other question
there Bob at the moment about all of this we’re at the halfway stage we know
how tight this course is how difficult the rough is as well Kopke and dusted
Johnson with their enormous power and the way they’ve brutally hit the ball
along this course of have made them look different on occasions to to others is
there a way back is there any way that koepcke can put pressure on himself either knows the answer always
disappeared but either way it’s going to be a fascinating I think we paid by the
word that we can’t do but I see they’re still being with us but he’s gone and
we’re back here so thought second half you mentioned it there with pep
guardiola and what does jabber University I have to do too or what for
just say we know what our game plan is we can’t just go all out in the first 10
minutes of the second off but somehow they’ve got to score the next goal I
think it’s absolutely vital that they get a foothold and they get a goal if
they don’t this could be horrendous day for them don’t know how you feel shoe
but the fear factor I have and it was probably prior to the first goal was the
body language of one or two other players almost didn’t believe in what
they were trying to achieve and if you’ve got any any form of sort
of deficiency within your team this one – even in this country is going to
exploit that and they’ve been sky-blue well what for notes 45 minutes and
they’re the first across the line here and they’ve well they come out looking
determined for it but there’s an extra spring still in that step of Manchester
City as they race across the white line and onto the field
Kevin friend is in the middle he’s done a good job so far but it must be
difficult at times to actually referee a Manchester City side because they’ve got
all the Arts they’ve got one or two the dark arts at times as well that they get
away with I think he actually stopped a really promising Watford attack in that
first 45 minutes and actually that could have been ever a major major turning
point well it could have been but which it’s going to be the next turning point
is it one that there’s no turning back for Manchester City or a way back for
Watford here’s Ian Stuart Pearce and Sam matter face on talk sport well
Manchester City lead by two goals to nil and you mentioned the spring in their
step as they came out for the second half SAG’s I was watching the Watford
players come out Stuart Pearce and then Dan exactly dart onto the pitch now one
thing I’m going to throw out and I can’t live all this criticism in the main
about Watford this season but prior to that and the fact they’ve turned
managers over I picked to see what could play in at times you know I did question
to myself a genuine one or two at err players were and I wouldn’t say that
about them this year make no mistake but in years gone by certainly talked back
into seasons I’ve looked at them and I thought what are you really in it for
the manager year sales the team well what puts only other appearance in
an FA Cup final was 35 years ago they lost to nil and one of those goals had
more than a width of controversy about him Andy Gray’s clash with Steve
Sherwood which divided opinion at the time and there was a bit of controversy
about the second goal for Manchester City today who scored it Josue’s
Oesterle has been awarded to Raheem Sterling we’re off and underway in the
second half with Manchester City in the lead and on the fron
for shooting from right to left in those blue shirts white shorts and white socks
Watford in the black and yellow needing to get back into the game shooting a way
to outright the 211 Edison the goalkeeper for city Walker company
reporting sin chenko Bernardo Silva good – and dabit Silber who scored his first
goal of 2019 in that first half mario zeus and sterling are the
attackers Watford on the attack now with Troy Deeney picking up from Decorah into
the area fining Pereira back to Hughes who’s just behind Hughes and it’s nipped
away by zinchenko and then cleared by manchester city but only as far as the
Menier and it’s turned over quickly they’re gonna need an early go in this
second half feed Holloway Watford and if they were a little bit more precise in
the area there they might have got one yeah it looked like they were I’m not a
really good chance hood on my foot Troy Deeney just hit it you know cuz he had
two or three following up to one extra pass but I’m with you on that only I
think there was a shooting opportunity especially if you’re a centerfold for
Watford he’s not going to have too many opportunities I think sterling racing
away down the left side of the center circle place and out to the left and
Gabrielle chases who dances into the box gets onto his left but shoots have got
this big save that big moment straight down his throat but he had to parry it
away it goes out for a corner kick for manchester city with their first attack
of the second half almost getting themselves into a three goal need it’s
blistering isn’t it I mean I quick is Raheem Sterling no quick is Jesus and
what an important save that is it’s probably the difference between the two
teams there that we’ve seen right in front of our eyes what for that good
opportunities to get a shot on target failed to do so
Manchester City horse opportunity fashioned a movement and got a shot away
on target that’s got to be saved just the way that little Gabrielle Joseph’s
outmuscled Mary a beau was impressive here’s the corner good doing baptism
check out from a different angle he crosses the bottom of the darker
Jace’s but the oxide flag was up yeah definitely outside but it’s worrying is
that he’s worrying the bodies they’re getting forward the way the hunger that
they have come on what foot we need to you to get back in this but there’s no
energy in that what could seem whatsoever is there I mean look at the
way they’re coming out from the goal kick
they look like they’re absolutely cream-crackered yeah they don’t as I say
and leading that demise is kapooya I think you know I’m not sure he’s Minds
on the game of present I might be being a little bit harsh there but I’m not
seeing energy and drive in the central midfield for many eras put a bit of
energy in to get down the right-hand side for walk but he’s won the ball back
and taking it towards the corner flag he’s followed by Laporte plays a lovely
little back heel into Dell FAO space to exploit low ball into the six yard box
no one gets across there first man Dini was lurking about six yards back from
the edge of the six yard box screaming for the ball didn’t breach him and it’s
cleared away by manchester city just that the right backs put some energy in
the team this order needing come on leaving the shops
kaput on to will Hughes right side tuck around the corner again for delaffei
Herrera has made a good run inside the area could he pull it back to the quarry
he pulls it behind him and he’s covered up by Marez and cleared away from
manchester city hips bouncing babies that was another half chance spoiling
the shoe that can’t you mean you mean
you’re looking for that even if the keeper makes the save you’ve got two
people in there you can’t fire a short what are you doing
skew what’s going on shoes on – Dini Dini time to poke it forward fuse tries
to win it ahead of company good strong solid teak tough tackle from vincent
kompany and the ball just bounces out towards the far side and Marez has got
it again manchester city then to find a free kick because Halle Bass is fouled
Jesu so sorry Mara’s on the far side it’s going to be a free kick as we’ve
seen time and time again e in the game in world football the best players might
take the right opportunities more often and manchester city it’s very difficult
to pick holes in any of their past nor any other movement when they get into
certain areas they seem to make the right choices all the time walk furred
on the other hand embed a couple of opportunities to shoot and get shots
away on target and take your chance on secondaries they have never won a major
trophy Watford they finished second in the top flight in 8283
lost an FA Cup final in 84 and they are losing this one by two goals to nil in
the second half they have scored though in ten of their last twelve fixtures
might not be over yet here is Mara’s down the right side onto
the edge of the area bernardo silver david silva back to good-doer poor past
the edge of the box and it’s a way for a throw in which will be taken by kiko
familiar but in order to get back into this game they’ve got to take one of the
opportunities that comes their way at the moment they don’t look as if they
aren’t capable of doing that so I think what would have shown that they can you
know get the ball in and around the box but they’ve just not fashioned a clear
cut enough chance to get away and trouble the goalkeeper often or nothing
all up towards the halfway line it’s down with the Roberto Pereira back to
Cathcart maybe the momentum might shift if they
got one it’s certainly what happened in the semi final yet it would give them
all a huge injection of belief an extra energy but I think I’m watching watch –
I’m looking at Kapoor I’ve been in that midfield when when people are playing
like man sit you do around you you need to others around you don’t go on man
Martin come with me and win what get for him it’s a good right that’s what he’s
moaning about it’s a great point Anthony you know for all of the love
lethargy and the tired legs of Watford let’s point out that Manchester City so
far in the game have been fabulous here’s delaffei you wriggling pass one
past to place a lovely pass towards the edge of the area
Pereira gets it back again inside the box but
to it the tackle comes in from company and its dealt with by Manchester City
who bring it clear that delaffei you there wriggling passed to Manchester
City midfielders running up to the defense coming in field and laying it
after Pereira again that final ball Sam why didn’t you shoot I do not understand
I’ve seen him scores and wonderful goals early on in this season that is crying
out to just get it onto your right foot ever been it was shot don’t do that
extra part this games on a tipping point at the moment if Watford do it the
batter in there this game will go all the way there’s no doubt in my mind you
know because they are moving the ball and getting it into the last Vodun and
around the bolts they just haven’t been cute enough to get shots away right now
here’s an opportunity a free-kick on the far side the big man up from the back
cap car and Mary a paddock or a in there as well the rarer leaves it’ll be taken
by hala bass he’s crossed towards the near post going up there was company
with a big strong header which goes out over on the far side what a header watch
ahead or what a man unbelievable throwing again from Halle bass on the
far side the left Watford on the attack but a pressure for manchester city to
deal with here is going to be a long torpedo into the box from the Greek
international who is 34 years of age the brunette is getting ready to come and
enter the fray as the throwing comes in towards the near post cope he becomes
and gets a punch on it comes out as far as Cathcart and then goes back to the
halfway line and Mary app’ turns it back to the Northern Irish Byrne who then
scoops it over the top towards the left chest it down by Pereira Dini should
have released the left-hand side didn’t came in filtered delaffei who instead he
goes wide to the right and familiar still what the press
here as the ball goes into the center company was certainly there were appeals
not as vociferous as the first time and the ball is cleared over on the far side
by the Manchester City defense in – Nucky’s and that’s gonna be hard for
anybody to give that I still think he should have done better with the header
personally I’m not sure that header was on target
Pereira picks it up again he was the man who had that chance back into della fire
whose bid way inside the city Harvey scoots the ball to the right touch side
now it’s picked up by four men Ian back into delaffei who once again can he make
them take he picks it up once more scoops it forward into de correo de
choros committed a foul here he’s nudged could do until the floor and a free kick
will be given inside the 18 yard box this is so much better from Watford this
is what we wanted to see from the star of the game
just a final decision they need they need to do something to almost convince
themselves and convince their own culture and exactly that’s what loosely
let’s go to the touchline the Moose has got details of the first substitution in
the game yeah I’m not sure that mass will be happy about this or not because
we had Marez who I thought gave all about some real torrid time in the first
half and some air coming off but the man coming on is coming to the broiler so
you’ve seen off Marez I need to be faced by Kevin de Bruyne I’m not sure our
Watford defensive feel about that Sam Kevin de Bruna has had an injury-plagued
season the man who’s toiled with hamstring injuries throughout the course
of the season he said Italy after the victory by a point urban Liverpool in
the title race he has no sympathy for the Jurgen Klopp spend and I doubt he’s
going to come on here with any sympathy for Watford it means that Bernardo Silva
will go out further towards the right hand side of de Bruna will come into
that central area yeah that’s right the ability they’ve gotten that in that team
he’s quite exceptional and now they brought on Kevin de Bruyne oh wow
I didn’t like Morris’s reaction coming off there I know you don’t you don’t
want people laughing and singing and dancing coming off but he was far too
miserable for me like I was just washing his face with a bit of water pep
guardiola who is wearing a grey jersey top over a white t-shirt has his hands
in his pockets and he’s still bellowing and his team on the field who are
playing out from the back with Edison that company and then out towards Walker
he’s about three yards in from the touch line he runs up over the halfway line
bounce forward Karl Walker toward the edge of the area
it was infield to de Bruna and then back out to Bernardo Silva the now those
silver cuts in on his left foot tries to find a way through here looks up silver
David Silva has it ten yards back from the edge of the area then into Goodwin
centrally wider out is Kevin de brother he sends across into walls the impose
and it’s step we can reach Jesu spike Apgar and out
for another corner if there’s a better passer in world football I’d like to see
him Linda Brunner some of his crosses some
of his passes are exquisite and I just watch sterling make it unbelievable run
towards that not even not even far approach towards the near post and no
wonder he sports a many gold and the one thing is it was two City players bearing
down on their and the lack of what four defenders was far at starting here is
the corner the port is motioning at the far post being hustled width by Marianna
it’s in two wars Latour gets a header towards the fast it back from where it
came and it goes out just away for a goal kicker wait around that hand side
but again he got up the bump Mari after there I always felt even when the two of
them came together that he was going to have the beating
mariya put the feel like he needs to make a substitution pretty quickly you
know Andre gray needs to come on or somebody
else just to lift their energy levels great success those two players of the
forward options on the bench for Watford and happy Grazia who at the moment
haven’t really landed a glove on manchester city in this football match
and we’ve played 13 minutes in the second half a shot in towards the fire
posed a long ball over the top and it just tickled the outside of the post
that was an opportunity another one for Watford the header away by Walker wasn’t
great the forward headed by Cooke who went right over the top of the city
defense and he got behind company there delaffei but I think he missed kicks it
certainly as he’s cut across the ball and I think the goalkeeper had it
covered if it was going in the goal but the one thing what would have done they
made certainly plenty of opportunities going into Manchester City’s box and if
you can lighted a a compilation if you like they’ll be really disappointed at
the end of this game they haven’t made something of it to Branagh with bernardo
silva breaching the offside champion racing down the right-hand side
delivering across into the box towards Jesu Maria Perez up there to stop him
from reaching the Brazilian and it’s cleared away by the want for defence but
only as far as good to have you’ve got to be alert Bernardo Silva he pops up
everywhere what a fabulous player Bernardo silver is
transfer of chances wonderful balance he’s had one of the best seasons of any
Premier League player the toy was the thought pet was lucky
enough to write silver down once but he can write it down twice Bopha syllables are worth their weight
in gold here is zinchenko the left fullback playing it into Raheem Sterling
damage Silva falls over and then he brings down world hues in a dangerous
area is going to be a yellow card for David Silva though more than that it was
a cynical challenge because he knew that after falling over and losing possession
Hughes was running in on goal Wow Hughes was in here now he’s tripped him
up in his elbow yeah he’s denying any knowledge of it but I
think it was pretty cynical and probably the worst think they do know we don’t
like to see it in there go well it wouldn’t be a red card offense cuz he
wasn’t denying it clear and obvious goal scoring opportunity but it’s certainly
given what put an opportunity to try and craft from a set piece here it certainly
was a cynical challenge because after the slip from silver oil Hughes was
getting towards the edge of the bottling ad players in support
Herrera and Della feyo’s standing over the free-kick but it’s going to be
Ferraro is going to take it a couple of them shied over the top of the ball
before it comes through the calf car back on the edge of the area Mary AMPA
tries to keep it alive it’s picked on by Kapoor then up to Wi-Fi couldn’t do it
and then it might fall here for gabrielle Jesu she’s trying to win it
Pereira’s fighting for it but Jesus wanted it more got it more and then he
sent through by Sterling Lachey Zeus is racing forward he’s giving the rider to
finish it dances past the goalkeeper decision guarantees a travel
what you do help inspire on the floor because of Manchester City’s tiny dancer
Kevin de Bruyne o is the man that prancing a fake
that gives the trophy to pep guardiola an attack at one end a racing
counter-attack at the other jatis down on the left hand side place a one-two
with sterling sets up to Bruner and he was never going to miss it’s all over
they’ve been floored by the champions hits Manchester City three walk Ferndale
humble is devastated devastating attack nobody’s thinking about anything other
than being total team player and putting the white person in brilliant in Josue’s
once again is one a hater in midfield that probably he shouldn’t be winning
but city of one hit as him midfielders set that goal up in the box in early on
two headers by small players with small stature but were big arts their winners
soon he’s making them into winners unbelievable they were good players
anyway no no brilliant what a team water squad what a
season Manchester City lead the FA Cup final
five three goals to nil and Watford have had the life sucked and beaten out of
them here’s Stirling on to do Bruner who’s
trying to get the better of will Hughes and he’s brought down by will Hughes and
it’s a free kick to Manchester City well Guardiola demands the comms
concentration every minute of a training session three hours a day total focus
and you can see that work paying off on the pitch he’s still not happy now he’s
still having a go at someone you know talk about setting standards yeah the
one thing that his teams don’t do they don’t back off you know even at 3:00
Neal they look to school for four they look to school at five what good fans are still recording but
it’s the Manchester City fans that are making the noise their chants echoing
around wembley as they come forward again with walker on to stirling down
the left-hand side tries to get his way into the box does that on the overlap is
damaged silver picked up by sterling once again sterling wriggling pass
delaffei who comes through to damage silver there’s space in the back post /
J Zeus doesn’t reach him and it’s cleared away by the curry and up to the
edge of the centre circle will of course is their commanding Dini
Dini woke up this morning walked down these stairs 282 text messages doesn’t
usually get that man he told Jim what earlier today live on talks Paul he said
the right things I’ve got to make this my sort of game it’s gotta be a fight
it’s going to be a battle they’re technically better than us but we’ve got
to make sure we stand up to the fight when I’m afraid technical ability has
been superior in blue and has been a bit more fight about that team
it’s the simplicity of what they do but how easy they make it look here’s Jesus
down the right side played in in the wing position trying to get their cells
on the front foot again de Brunner into the area low cross it hits the feet of
the goalkeeper pops up in front of Walker and it’s half cleared by Watford
who take it round to Worcester Caray and then he clears it took me about the
strength of the pink Bruna’s lifted this performance even
higher resident his own will and they’ve still got a few to come on
well it is their seventh trip to Wembley in two years but there’s no apathy not
today the Manchester City fans have just finished another rendition of the Poznan
and they have reveled in it they know their team are on the verge of doing
something that will shatter any illusion that this dominance is coming to an end you didn’t is rising and going anywhere here’s
Walker out wide to the right on to Cabinda Brunner
good runner rolls his foot over the ball and sends it back towards the near side
and then it goes down the right looking for bernardo silver and it crumbles out
of play and away for a goal kick away to our left-hand side he’s got to make
changes now happy grants here but it might be too little too late here’s the
moose on the touch line but he’s going to make two of them right now it’s
coming off for Gerald L affairs and then affair was the hero the semi-final is
the the man coming off Andre grows been used mainly as an
impact sub this season the other player coming on is also a four player and it’s
going to be Isaac success and I’ve got to tell you that really what for the
success out of him desperately because they haven’t really had much of a sniff
of the game reverse the prayer coming off of him by the way you asked me at
halftime get off screams Scott about the city’s second goal Sam didn’t you about
whether it’s Gabrielle hey Zeus is all right I’m saying I know that you say
it’s now I definitely begin to sterling but down here
according to television they’re still giving it to a zoo so that was really
our selfish play for the circle well the official
has given it to sterling but I suppose you know they’ll change them I’ve seen
girls given taken away given again about three times there was a girl with a job
Terry scored against Everton from a free-kick which he didn’t even touch
which was given to him taken away given to him taken away again but which terms
the bookmakers had already paid out first gold scorer
lucky item at 25 to one that day here is Mary app’ deep inside he’s owned half of
the field Watford need well the odds on Watford
getting a comeback here and certainly longer than that they are really really
struggling it’s Manchester City three well but now on the FA Cup final live on
tulle sport with a Sun football visit the Sun coat UK for the ladies results
news and gossip if you’re happy Grazia now you’ve made those changes do you
realistically have any hope of turning it around
in all honesty its renewing its man city we all team looking a little bit
downtrodden you cross your fingers when you make the substitution hope some it
goes your why don’t you ollie yeah without a shadow but though it’s very
very difficult from this moment you need a goal the curate on to success on the
edge of the Manchester City penalty area his cross takes a deflection might go
through to Hughes Hughes receives it now and tries to trundle in field it’s back
out to too many ER and he doesn’t manage to hold on to it behind him from Hughes
and it’s out for a throwing in the left fullback position I’d like to give him
some credit because like he still made the right substitutions he’s tried to
get some more forwards on the pitch you know because they could be on for hiding
if he’s if he’s unlucky there might be trouble
here because the printer has spotted the run by jaysus and Jacey’s who’s
sprinting through into the Aires based upon the goalkeeper is touching past
events the ljz scores the latest Manchester
City girls set up by substitute Kevin Gaudreau
they went racing away from the halfway line and Gabrielle Josue’s came up with
a brilliant finish when he left the superstar on the bench pep guardiola but
he knew he could rely on his Archangel Gabriel to finish off a job for him and
he didn’t deny anybody there it was a super finish under pressure in front of
the goalkeeper no chance for Gomes no chance for Watford it’s for nil to
Manchester City well it shows you two things we’ve just seen the swiftness of
the attack they’ve run up from inside their own half-cock Warford open and
when the ball hit the back of the net an alarming thing happened when you looked
into the Man City off there was still five Watford players in there with their
heads down yeah they’re they’re beating than their well beaten at the moment
and all I can say is you know I’m not I’m going to go at him today I’m saying
that Man City are a little bit special I have to say it is a privilege to watch
him live I would hate to be playing against them I would love to be playing
for them because they are the benchmark for it for English football to try and
catch fantastic finish what a fantastic race away from the halfway line from
Manchester City what a fantastic team and they have
absolutely spanked Watford here he is the brother who’s continuing the
punishment down the right hand side dancing inside Kapoor and getting to the
edge of the box he’s Bernardo Silva pass mariotta back
to the bois de boulogne over the top and the only surprise there isn’t five he’s
human after all yes he got someone wrong what difference
he’s made coming oxygen is lifted the level from si sit here outstanding but
the time the to kneel Watford had one or two opportunities then you saw two too
many Wat Pho pliers end up getting picked off with given goes and whatever
and they really are a beaten side now Watford imagine if they decided that the
next decision to make was to bring the rocks are no who’s standing now strict
and ready for action and maybe a guerra brutal you know the the thing that’s
really impressed me about city today I they’ve competed for every loose ball
they’ve won headers and punched up up their white and the likes of the two
silvers jung-geun ruin and Sterling they win their 50/50 sugar
I’m telling you walk today they’ve won more fifty fifties and probably walk for
them what would should dominate that step well they have a free-kick Walker
before Sano comes on Halle bass six yards in front of the center circle is
going to take the free kick it’s deep towards the far post headed by success
and pushed away rather wobbly by Edison almost caught himself a little bit of
grief there it does go out to the far side again and
coming forward the Manchester City fans certainly enjoying themselves at the
moment leading by four goals to nil here’s the Kuro down the leg producer
cross into the center away by damaged silver comes back to Kapoor hits the
defender Emma regular port and then bounces towards the halfway line 26
minutes done in the second half 71 overall 19 minutes away from suiting
that impressive historic treble for Manchester City what will it mean
Pep Guardiola says they’ve gotta win the big one to be the greatest website of
all time here’s shoes on – to Corre over the top of the crossbar from inside the
D leaning back it was always going over the top and another substitution for the
Moose – tell us about this time for Watford yeah first of all Leroy Salah is
going to come on for Manchester City I mean we grabbed see right
Peppy’s roofless a minute that boat that going in he absolutely decide he brings
all neon but what’s the change is cleverly four-wheel hues which is a
straight swap in midfield I think the for the official grounds got
totally got the wrong board though the 19’s coming on for city sare
and eights coming off which is good new one and that eights coming on for what
for the 19 from forget a he’s mixed up I’m confused
by the way from Turner takes the wife telling it on with ouch time the
penalties certainly won’t be any extra time and there will not
penalty’s do you know what door number you live at five good
Lisa is not two figures in that view to get confused swim there’s the changes good do it now
coming off to a rapturous applause the Manchester City bad certainly ensuring
that he knows his appreciatively right Sunday he’s on now obviously he is a
player week has been linked with the move always yet
to sign a new contract Sam look at this out for a goal kick unbelievable this
goalkeepers got a sledgehammer in his boots
so they’ve basically set up with three players on the edge of the opponent’s
penalty area long kick out to saarne he flicks it on Tuesday Zeus I mean the gap
between the goalkeeper and Jays was unbelievable but it’s Andre gray who’s
broken down the right-hand side driven the ball into the 18 yard box hoping
that Dini could get on the end of it he went right through the box and went out
the other side in the way for a throwing for Neal to Manchester City and by the
way before goals today takes them to 24 in the FA Cup this season and they have
mass called more than Chelsea who got 20 in 2012 they need five for the record one more yeah as if they need five this
afternoon my record certainly it just depends whether they want that
extra one knowledge how impressive already no student you know I mean you
know you having I was gonna say we run by us but you must note City because you
play for them but I mean there is this not worrying for the rest of the Premier
League seeing the team grow like this yeah it
certainly is I mean the alarming thing is only they might add to it in the
summer here is the throw in on the far side for Watford from that Center from
gray headed away by company comes back to compose a wild swing which doesn’t
touch the sides and goes out for a goal people words where right hand side you
said they might add to it the Manchester City Scott might will he even get an
overhaul companies contract expires this could be his last game Danilo Mende and
elf may leave good new ones got one year left on his contract hasn’t signed a new
one yet sana has been linked with bian hasn’t signed a new deal either and pip
will only want the hungriest of competitor stood yeah he certainly will
the alarm beeping from that for the rest of the ladies Manchester City
we’ve been eulogizing about how good they are yet we’re pointing the finger
of where they can improve as far amazingly
well and since the FA Cup final live for money listening to talks Paul don’t
forget to following us Jason candy and Danny Kelly bring you the full time
phone in Rio to fight night special a little bit later on as well tomorrow on
talk sport too it’s non league finals day and fav ours and FA Trophy
back-to-back here at Wembley but today is all about Manchester City the
headlines and your purpose tomorrow will be all about Manchester City here is
zinchenko down the left-hand side moving towards the center of the Watford half
15 minutes to go you would say for what for things can only get better but
things can probably only get worse is in chenko David Silva wants the ball in
Royse our nose on the edge of the area it goes back to the port and then
company in the center circle de Bruna to Picaro silver Sam if I was a corner man
and my boxer was getting beat up like this I’d throw to town it you lose no
you can’t in football but good gracious me still I think tepui as Mike
personally and they speak their way out and John didn’t cancel that concert
tonight in Copenhagen and I think this might be a stupid statement you know sit
he got the four goals but what sort of end up which unit is in and around
city’s box to really you know woke the goalkeeper a little bit more or or
fashion summing Kovac and they’ve just not done so they’ve had two shots
on-target in the game their fashion six opportunity they’ve had 33 percent the
ball but as you say better precision in the final third he could have been a
different game here on the right side Raheem Sterling has it again they’re
resting with the ball manchester city into david silva infield to bernardo
silver what well they’re doing nothing Sam is so it’s all about our set up if
you look at the discipline that they got they build their shape miles away from
the ball because they’re gonna work if they can’t get down this side they’ll
work over to the other side and they hold discipline you know I’m sure
they’ve got blocks on the pitch marked out where they teach their players where
to go they’re brilliant players anyway but he
teaches them this and they know it and now they’ll work at the other side once
they got on the right they can’t get in there work at the other so Jesus dragged
you over why drag you over and then drag you over
again company keeps things ticking over onto – brunette – brought her back to
the port that player that they say has been their best signing in the last four
or five years the Bronner gets hit back – Walker Walker – Josue’s Stirling’s
occupying the space in the middle of the pitch now Sarna is almost hanging the
touchdown on this left-hand side now it’s been the port we just strides
through in the center circle they must have had about 50 passes here at
Manchester City without losing the ball now Silva trips it over the top of the
defense chest it down by Leroy saarne and
de Bronner is just hesitating as the balls play down the left for him by Lee
Royce are known as a goal kick the way to our left and science 12 minutes to go
it has been a week of hearing emotion to Manchester City whose war with new ways
Fuhrer has continued the emergence of the footage from the team plane may have
colored the celebrations from the weekend
but today is all about celebration and the man who got the party started is
about to be replaced let’s go down to the touchdown I’m here from the moose
silver coming off Johnstone’s it’s coming on for him I was quite
surprised when I saw stones about to come on the pitch I really thought we
were going to see the end of it I am giving a standing ovation by this
city crowd but no it’s David silver who comes off which means won’t see where on
this cut final date not much talk about where I being left out now is there I almost proves that manager right again gets quite a lot right doesn’t he

forward slash football here’s Lee Royce our no trying to scape away down the
left hand side he’s brought back by for me for many who I think was a little bit
late with his tackle a free-kick has been given 10 yards back on the edge of
the area and a yellow card is going to be given to the Spaniard he gets back to
his food I think we could all look at looking way I think England Rebecca teen because
of us watching laid clothes I think Gareth would admit that he’s gone and
spoke to him and talked to him a lot I love the fact that England’s we get
about people now we press people and in nearly every game in every standard I’ve
seen it’s affected people trying to play and have more possession from the back
and move it around oh I fell on talkSPORT the other week
who who didn’t like it but you know I think I think we’re getting better and
better throughout the leagues because of Hindman and how he’s changing the game
and also know you’ve got to understand that Warcraft delft Stan sterling that
they’re all get a great education day-in day-out and I know so much about poster left-hand-side played in to the area he
got me off the last defender he shuffled the ball across to the back post and
Raheem Sterling was there to finish it off the what the players crumble once
again and once again Manchester City have carved them open and ruthlessly got
themselves further in front I guess that’s why you call it the Blues
live nail what can I say after that Sam great line
from you very sad for for Watford but Raheem Sterling deserved that for me
what what a season he’s had whoever that first one was it or the
second one was his goal or not he’s definitely got out one brilliant
footballs to him defensively really poor at the back post they’re not tracking
runners but I tell you what he’s consistently done sterling as you said
earlier he consistently gets in across the back line and how many tappings is
the ad like that this year you know he must have had table yeah but a snooze
manager telling him get inside the full-back read the game get in there get
in there and score goals and and you don’t have to be the natural goals going
to team like this because you’ll have more than enough tap ins because they
are completely brilliant again you won’t get in the box and that goes to your
point in saying hell it feeds onto the England national team that he’s
education and he’s confidence playing in this team Raheem has brought him on as a
plan four goals scored an FA Cup season with
25 and his sterling looking to break that record getting into the area after
going past Cathcart the goal Cuba came out this time and smothered the ball and
Watford just this time managed to survive five meal in a cup final no team
has ever scored just five in a cup final it’s been six or it’s been four but
never five but then again Manchester City always do things that
other people haven’t in his Manchester City five Watford nil in the FA Cup
final live on talkSPORT with the sun football but if the Sun not cold at UK
for the latest results news and gossip Watford fans flying their flags away to
our right behind the goal but they have been well beaten in fact it sounds harsh
to say it but they’ve been humiliated – appears yeah I think they have I mean
the most disappointing thing for me I think one or two of their players and
I’m not suggesting all of them one or two drop their heads in the first off
and I don’t think they’ve recovered from that
they’ve not been clinical enough and when they felt opportunity early on in
the gun to score a goal the goalkeeper come to their rescue and done
brilliantly their fans have been magnificent they’re all waving their
flags now they’re getting a clap of appreciation from the Manchester City
fans Ian my wife solutely magnificent honestly what a what a wonderful day
I don’t think what would have been allowed to play very well you know so
you know I’m not blaming them I think the occasions got to them and and the
brilliance of the team they’re playing against has got to them well they dished
out some hidings this season six nil to Chelsea seven nil to rather a nine mil
to Burton they’ve scored five here at Wembley in a cup final with little
resistance as sterling tries again to get into the box cleverly comes across
and gets in his way the ball is out the far solid Isaac’s success as the minutes
ticked down and the time almost reaches 84 minutes six minutes to go for
Manchester City before their season is going to be complete Watford have never
won a major trophy before Manchester City of 1-3-1 season the
League Cup your Premier League at now the FA Cup as
well it will start the debate here is Bernardo Silva into the era from the
brothers past he gets a shot away flicked over the top life of many
Rabbani and just about got enough on the ball to steer it over the top for a
corner again his movement they know the tiredness they’re really having some
horrible arguments in that back line in a mode right I mean it might be stained and
earlier that in seasons gone by I’ve seen seen these flashes from the team at
times and seen in games especially back into the season the team saw almost
downed tools on occasion I think this is one of them by Bill of score for
Manchester City you listening to talks bought the corner to be taken by de
Brunner over on the far side they’re just having a quick look here at var I
think someone’s took the bull run personally yeah that’s what your memento
of the day not bad he’s gone in the city end wall I’m here right now Sam I’d like
to congratulate Matt Tottenham for beating him not coming out the Champions
League over two legs it’s unbelievable it was just a new ball that the referee
wanted here is the corner kick over on the far
side taken by the runner in toward the penalty spot area headed away by Kapoor
and then picked up by zinchenko and out towards the far side sir did Brunner and
whence in chenko to Brunner on the same team they look very much alike don’t
they the great picture of its social media Micky taken going round of a
picture at the end of one of the seasons of which permanent of the Premier League
was secured by Manchester City and Kevin de Bruyne was walking around with a
little baby and then there’s another picture right next to it of him and it’s
in chenko coming off the pitch together the caption is time flies the scary
thing is in janko’s a central midfield player he’s not even a left back he was
I think he’s now these place down at that left back position now don’t you
what a fantastic season twin chenko has had the 24th game of the season in
domestic competition on the 24th when he’s coming here’s why in a evening a
day which was no 2013 this cities are very different here’s the Bronner down
the right side into Stan Stanley gets his second hat-trick
against Watford this season off the post with the first shot back into sterling
and City scores six in the FA Cup final it is an absolute morning from Pep
Guardiola’s team the records falling again and Manchester City had smashed and battered Watford
Raheem Sterling who scored a hat-trick against them at the year 2 yard has got
a hat-trick now Wembley 6 nil well I’ve gotta say the way seasons gone right the
way he’s played this season he probably deserves that fantastic plague right
sell ply Sterling’s pulled off the goalkeepers made a wonderful safe but it
was sterling and reacting quickly he’s read it I mean they’re all along that
they’re thinking they’re their mind look look
all of them look sharper at the 5 yard sharper at the moment don’t they you
know some all credit to their manager and their staff I think they’re
fantastic the winner talk is changing the game in my opinion
what a fantastic victory the manchester city water showed strength what a
display of absolute quality from the best team in the land by a country mile
the biggest FA Cup winning margin for years only the third team to ever score six
goals in an FA Cup final last thing to do it six nil berry against Derby County 1902 1903
sights bothered that one the members have scored six before as
well how many how many goals are stolen got this year 22 and this is allowed two
seasons ago we’re saying not very good in front ago yeah absolutely I think I think it’s the way they know
where the space is and they’ve taught that you know he talks about I’ll get
you to this part of the pitch and then you go and play every one of them knows
it are getting better and better and it’s the biggest ever score line in a
Wembley top final 1902 1903 Barry B Darby six nil but that was at
the old Crystal Palace again another record Falls pep guardiola is about to
become just the eighth manager to win the English top flight the League Cup
the FA Cup in his career let alone in the same season here is sterling trying
to get the ball back to Leroy sign he was there a handball there the referees
not gonna be that unkind on to Jay Zeus inside the day down the right
picked up by Silva into the center out comes Aurelio Gomez grabs it well the
Watford fans are still cheering but it’s the Manchester City fans
the happiest and this should not be allowed to escape quietly at all there
should be noise about this Manchester City on the cusp of something no men’s
eyes have ever managed before and the man who’s won the man of the match award
to appear sees a man who came on as a second-half substitute Kevin de Bruyne
er that’s quite amazing he certainly had an impact him again there’s no doubt
about that they look a little bit more fluid in the way they play and he’s been
instrumental in that but boy that is some impact to come with him a second
off and win the man of the match yeah Holloway we know he’s good but I would
have personally picked Bernardo silver I think you know him and diamond silver a
different class or or bro he never mind on the hardwood you Kevin you’re
brilliant mate you’re a genius it has been there to be achieved since 1961 but
no one has ever managed it before today Manchester City with des Brunner
leading the charge in the second half and having the ball now sends it for two
jaysus under Stirling racing into the centre cuts it back to job
just about bounties up over the crossbar off Gomez and out for a corner
it was almost seventh heaven for Manchester City when they lead by six
goals to nil and we’ve got two minutes of stoppage time to play
wow what a move again 2.0 it is amazing but the pace to have that pace at this
time of the game and for Sterling not to go for four and square it again now
steam plays some credit to the manager you know I gotta say anybody who’s
managed to get anywhere near him this year I’d like to congratulate you
because this is someone else I’m seeing today corner to be taken over on the far
side to bring her into the sent oats headed away by Walker but as far as
Sarna who shoots from distance and he wasn’t too far away with the effort and
it goes wide whistling past the post and it’s out for a gold kick to Watford who
have barely been in this fight they haven’t laid a glove on manchester city
even to win two cups in a year is rare only asked on Liverpool I’ve ever done
that before but this is brand new territory for a men’s team with the
Community Shield as well tech calls it the little quadruple it is a major major
achievement the Clean Sweep is complete
Manchester City make history again they set standards again by six goals to nil
the biggest result ever in a Wembley Cup final and as a result they become the
first men’s team to ever complete a domestic treble arguably the greatest
day in Manchester City’s history you will never be able to take this away
from them this is special the Watford feta line I mean there’s all
sorts of things that you can talk about here as far as how great Pep Guardiola
and his coaching staff are and they are I mean they they most certainly
obviously practice as they play and play as they practice because you know you
just cannot do what they’ve done and just for a moment here they’ve gathered
together the whole of the Manchester City staff and players in the sender
circle but meanwhile as important to Watford Football Club have gone to the
edge of the box away to our right where nearly all of the Watford fans have
stayed they for the last 20 minutes been waving those red and gold flags and they
are getting a thorough round of applause let’s not forget Watford Football Club
have had some great moments this season Venice
no pushovers themselves but on an occasion like this when you could really
even raise your own game in the way Manchester did City there there’s
something very special in this competition that many times that we’ve
seen it where people don’t perform anything that they should do you know
what for this not forget that they’re a really good site that you know they’ve
had a fantastic season they’re established in the Premier League and I
go be honest man sit you’ve made him look like they’re from a lower league
and that’s nothing against Watford I think the fans on the way here have been
terrific they beat Wolverhampton Wanderers to st.
just one of it with with with an amazing comeback against the brilliant team so I
cannot tell you how impressed I am with what managed to see today yeah you’re
right and not just today I think over the only if I can’t bring sensational
ways of Millwall in the early rounds when they be ever and we’ve been seeing
some so many wonderful games this season in the FA Cup
well we haven’t what we’re seeing now as well as Manchester City loving this even
more because you know you look at sides you look at cities you look at what
Manchester City have done for the City of Manchester as well and the rivalry
with the great Manchester United and this very much is their time and for the
fans that have followed them not just in the great time
but the fans that were here when they were moments from not even winning a
playoff final that we’ve got coming up that they could have seen the end of
there any sort of dream they come through that sort of adversity and
they’ve gone on an under pep guardiola they have found the absolute diamonds to
put everything into practice well to in fairness they headhunting him and
whenever got him when I felt I had a brilliant manager
anyway in Pellegrini at a time I didn’t like that but now all
I can sell take my cap off to you you planning it you’re trying to get ahead
of the game you want your club to be worldwide renown famous you’ve got a lot
of trophies to go yet but you’re certainly on the way there a shadow of a
doubt well they haven’t won the Champions League obviously yet and
that’ll be something that you know they will want to do and the great thing is
of course the Champions League and also the Europa League finals both of those
live for you on talkSPORT in the next fortnight next weekend we’ve got all the
championship leap One and League two playoff finals as well they’re very
dramatic in their own right and tomorrow it’s bars and trophy finals and double
headers across the top sport Network difficult times these always for a club
like Watford now and for their fans when they have to wait and climb these steps
in a weary way right next to us here to go and shake hands with the Duke of
Cambridge and everybody else but to walk away just with a loser’s medal but
realistically when you sit down everybody knows that
Manchester City could do that to nearly anybody in the Premier League
there’s no doubt about that they moved a ball so swiftly they press from the
front they make it very difficult for you when you turn the ball over and if
you don’t take your chances which they had arguably the best chance of the
first 25 minutes and the goalkeeper made a wonderful stop from that point onwards
it was city’s going one of the other things that pep guardiola
obviously does do as well is that there is never any complacency with this side
out there on the field and if there is we say an awful lot more of them he
somehow has the ability that others haven’t managed so far with the power of
the modern footballer to override all of that he most definitely is still a boss
well absolutely every every time he goes into a new club he hammers one of the
biggest ones there and his that used to happen in school when I was a kid
growing up you know but dad told me you know because anything gonna happen at
the biggest you know and the rest of look he came into man city he was the
first one he got rid of the England goalkeeper we all had one you know now
I’m not saying he’s right you know what I’m saying is he’s done it and he does
it over and over again he had a battle with Toure didn’t he you know and saying
he was overweight but if we forget all of those things
