Join us for this evening's FA Cup quarter-final as Newcastle host Pep Guardiola's men in today's last Cup game... Semi-finals next!

LIVE
90'
FT: Newcastle 0-2 City. Manchester City will play Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals after a dominant performance at St James’ Park. Newcastle were outplayed throughout, though the substitute Dwight Gayle missed a great chance to equalise in the 66th minute. Raheem Sterling went down the other end and made it 2-0 moments later, and that was that.
90'
Gundogan takes the free-kick and looks to bend it past the crowd of bodies in the middle and into the far corner, but his accuracy is off as he sends it wide of the post.
89'
Joelinton pushes Jesus over lazily just outside the Newcastle penalty area and gives Manchester City a chance to add to their lead from a free-kick.
83'
Heroic goalkeeping from Darlow who comes off his line and puts his head in the way of the oncoming Sterling in order to block a low cross from the right-hand side. He makes the save in the end, but gets a free-kick with which to clear his area.
79'
Matthew Longstaff joins his brother in midfield, with Hayden the man to make way.
76'
Foden misses a good chance, clipping a shot wide after a good break from Sterling.
74'
That second goal has knocked the life out of Newcastle. Steve Bruce tries to revive them with another double change: DeAndre Yedlin and Valentino Lazaro replace Saint-Maximin, who didn’t have his best game, and Rose.
70'
Another double change for City: Rodri and Joao Cancelo replace Walker and De Bruyne.
68'
GOAAAAAALLLL! STERLING DOUBLES CITY'S LEAD! It’s a quick passage of play that starts with an unassuming goal-kick taken short, but the visitors hurry their way down the pitch through Foden - who finds Sterling on the left flank. The England international cuts inside and wires a low blast past that beats Darlow for pace and accuracy! 2-0 City!
67'
GAYLE PUTS IT JUST OVER! The first real Newcastle chance of the day comes after some sloppy play in the Manchester City defence. It’s gifted to Saint-Maximin just outside the penalty area, and the winger jinks into the 18 and puts a square pass across the face of goal for Gayle. The newly introduced forward opens his body and looks to place it, but sends it high into the sky - well over the crossbar.
64'
And a double change for Newcastle: Joelinton and Dwight Gayle replace Andy Carroll and Miguel Almiron.
64'
A double change for City: Bernardo Silva and Phil Fodren replace David Silva and Riyad Mahrez.
63'
Great defending from Rose! Mendy’s left-wing cross is chested down by Jesus, who is about to shoot when Rose stretches to make a vital interception.
61'
Newcastle are pressing higher up the pitch but it leads to disaster as Carroll is finally booked, following his third challenge on Laporte. His late lunge was nowhere near the ball and he’s been shown a yellow for the infraction
57'
It’s a better game now. City are still well on top but Newcastle are looking more threatening when they have the ball.
53'
Mahrez, 25 yards out, turns and swishes a spectacular rising drive just over the bar.
49'
Mahrez surges forward on a counter-attack, but his pass across the face of the 18-yard box is poor, and Jesus’ attempt to get on the end of it finishes with a Newcastle free-kick, as Saint-Maximin’s path was impeded in the process.
46'
Back underway!
45'
HT: Newcastle 0-1 Man City. Manchester City head into the interval leading 1-0 through De Bruyne’s penalty following Schar’s foul on Jesus - but Guardiola must be feeling his side could have done more to increase the score. With more than 80 percent possession and 14 total shots, it’s been a case of failing to be clinical in front of goal, with too many touches often ruining promising attacks. Newcastle can consider themselves lucky to not be down more.
45'
CLOSE TO A SECOND! A Manchester City corner is lifted to Laporte, who manages to fashion a dangerous header despite fading away, putting the effort narrowly wide of the top corner.
40'
Looking to hit on the counter and through set-pieces, their delivery to Carroll will have to be perfect if they wish to equalise.
39'
The goal will force Newcastle to step forward and attack in search of a goal with the pace of Almiron and Saint-Maximin on the wings; two players who have gone largely unnoticed today.
37'
GOAAAAAAALLLLL!!! De Bruyne sends Darlow the wrong way. That’s his third successful penalty since he took over the role.
35'
PENALTY TO MANCHESTER CITY! Walker teases a dangerous cross into the edge of the six-yard box, where Jesus is pushed over blatantly by Fernandez. The referee immediately blows his whistle and points to the spot, giving the visitors a chance to take the lead.
33'
More good play from Manchester City goes unrewarded as Mendy’s square pass to David Silva is immediately redirected forward for Sterling, who is unable to chip an onrushing Darlow. Newcastle are living on the edge as they continue to look for the half-time whistle.
29'
Mahrez tries to force a cross into the penalty area from deep on the right, but Fernandez cuts in front of De Bruyne and beats it away yet again.
17'
CLOSE! Walker fizzes a powerful, low cross into the penalty area which just misses the outstretched foot of David Silva, and catches Jesus off-guard. The Brazil international manages to get a touch to it, but it’s only enough to put it wide.
13'
Less than 15 minutes into the match and City already look desperate to score as De Bruyne chases down a loose ball to take a quick throw-in and urge his side forward. It’s more disappointment though as Walker miscues a cross and puts it well above Dubravka’s goal.
9'
Jesus wins a corner under considerable pressure, but it’s David Silva who takes it short from the left. The ball filters to Mahrez on the right, but his eventual shot is charged down at the edge of the area.
3'
Play stopped momentarily after Laporte takes an elbow to the face from Carroll, who looks to have extended his arm quite far. It’s a free-kick for City as things are heating up right from the first whistle.
1'
And we're of in St James' park!
