21:47

Manchester City have fought back at the Etihad Stadium tonight; they have booked their place in the Capital One Cup final against Liverpool.

21:42

FULL TIME: Manchester City 3-1 Everton

(Manchester City win 4-3 on aggregate)

21:41

And another offside decision. Cleverley prods a pass through for McCarthy but the Republic of Ireland international is one of four Everton players offside.

21:40

Funes Mori goes down in a heap after a soft shoulder to shoulder into the box, but the defender has already been ruled offside. It's been pretty meek from Everton since City's third goal.

21:36

Five minutes of time added on, but there is likely to be more than that before we are done here with Kevin de Bruyne now having his leg put in a brace before he is taken off.

21:35

Kevin de Bruyne is down and looks in some pain. It looks a very painful one in the replay, his leg folded up behind horribly as he hit the turf. City medics are on with a stretcher.

21:33

Barkley is now back on with a couple of plugs shoved up his nostrils. Everton have two minutes plus injury time to find a goal to force injury time.

21:31

Ross Barkley meanwhile has been off the pitch for the last five minutes as Everton's medical team try to patch up a nose bleed.

21:30

Baines clips it in but Fernandinho can clear.

21:29

Otamendi joins him the book after a dangerous slide in on Kone who had skipped past him. Everton have a free kick out on the right flank.

21:29

Cleverley picks up a booking after a late tackle on Fernandinho. City had been stroking it around with ease before that, maybe signs of frustration emerging here.

21:23

City are looking to see this contest out now; here comes Fernando to replace David Silva.

21:22

City have a third! That corner is only half cleared, allowing De Bruyne to swing a beauty of a cross back into the box. Aguero, who is just onside meets it with a wonderful low header, glancing it into the bottom corner past Robles. Terrific goal, and now City lead the contest on aggregate.

21:21

Goal! Manchester City 3-1 Everton (Sergio Aguero, 75)

21:20

De Bruyne pelts it into the wall and Fernandinho drives the follow up into a crowd of players, winning a corner for his side.

21:20

Fernandinho charges onto a loose ball and gets there ahead of Cleverley, who blocks the Brazilian after he'd laid it off to Aguero. City free kick, this one is about 25 yards out from goal.

21:17

As it stands, extra time looms in this second-leg contest. Just over 15 minutes of normal time remaining.

21:16

Everton will have a right to be a bit miffed with that goal. Sterling had knocked the ball out of play before pinging his cross into the middle. Replays show the whole of the ball crossed the line.

21:15

City lead on the night! Sterling, who has largely been ineffective tonight, pushes the ball towards the byline ahead of Stones and pulls a cross into the six yard area where de Bruyne is on hand to steer it into the far corner.

21:14

Goal! Manchester City 2-1 Everton (Kevin de Bruyne, 69)

21:11

And the Belgian's first contribution is a run down the right flank onto a pass from Navas, a run that is ruled offside.

21:11

And a change for City now as Kevin de Bruyne enters the fray, replacing Yaya Toure.

21:04

Change for Everton, Deulofeu is off for Arouna Kone while Osman is replaced by James McCarthy.

21:03

More last ditch defending from Everton as Sterling scampers across goal, looking for room to shoot, but sees his effort charged down by the sliding Cleverley.

21:03

City are dominating the ball now but as it stands, Everton are half an hour away from a trip to Wembley.
