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

FULL TIME: Manchester City 3-1 Everton

(Manchester City win 4-3 on aggregate)

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Baines clips it in but Fernandinho can clear.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Now Silva hits the post! Zabaleta clips a wonderful cross into the box that Silva meets with a firm header, looking for the far corner, but it comes back off the woodwork. Toure tries to get on the rebound but flops to the ground under pressure from Jagielka. No chance of a foul, there.

Aguero makes a right mess out of a great chance to put City ahead on the night. Navas finds the Argentine's run in the six yard area but he miss-kicks it horribly.

Silva gives the ball away (!), inviting Barkley to burst forward on the counter attack again. He slips a perfectly weighted pass through for Deulofeu whose caught up with him to his left, but the Spaniard's attempt to curl it into the far corner is ready too easily by the City goalkeeper, who makes the save.

And City get us back underway for the second half.

And City get us back underway for the second half.

Half time: Manchester City 1-1 Everton

(Everton lead 3-2 on aggregate)

Lukaku meets a final corner with a header that bounces into the ground before bouncing back off the bar but the Belgian has been penalised for fouling Otamendi.

One minute of time added on, Everton are perhaps ending the first half the stronger of the two sides.

Deulofeu takes the free kick and looks for goal, but instead whacks his effort clear of the bar.

Delph now concedes a free kick, mistiming his challenge and bringing down Barkley about 30 yards out.

Silva takes, but it comes back off the wall and flies out for a corner.

Delph plays a neat one two with Sterling on the D and is fouled by Cleverley on the return. City free kick in a dangerous position.

Aguero rattles the post! Delph cuts inside to to Silva who slips it onto Aguero who takes a touch before smashing a wonderful effort that beats Robles, but comes back off the woodwork. Barry is first to the loose ball but lets Silva get in ahead of him. Fortunately, the Spaniard can't drive his effort on goal.

Everton are looking very dangerous on the break. This time it is Deulofeu who starts it, threading a great ball on for Barkley who drifts down the inside left channel. He tries to slide one across goal for Lukaku but Otamendi steps across to intercept.

John Stones tries to do his best impression of Barkley, cutting inside from the right into the middle, but he is robbed off the ball by a smashing sliding challenge from Fernandinho.

City are level! A long ball over the top is knocked onto Aguero who drives towards goal before cutting back onto his right foot. His shot is blocked by Jagielka, but Fernandinho follows it up with a shot from the edge of the area that takes a huge deflection off Baines, lifting it over the hapless Robles.

Goal! Manchester City 1-1 Everton (Fernandinho, 23)

City pick up from where they were a few minutes ago; probing in front of the Everton defence. Toure works a yard of space for himself inside the box and tries to find the top corner from a tight angle, but fires over.

Everton lead at the Etihad! Aguero thinks he is fouled but the referee plays on and the away side venture forward out of their own half. Barkley picks the ball up about 40 yards out from goal and brilliantly changes direction to slip past Fernandinho. He glides forward to the edge of the D with City defenders standing off him and finds the bottom corner with a wonderful low drive to put his side 3-1 up on aggregate.

Goal! Manchester City 0-1 Everton (Ross Barkley, 17)

Patient play from City ends when Otamendi tries his luck with an effort from over 30 yards out which fails to beat the first man and Everton finally get the ball back. Barry slides one out to Deulofeu who hits an early cross into the middle this time, one that is inches away from landing in the path of Lukaku.

Another very slick move from City. Sterling, Toure and Silva combine on the edge of the box as the Spaniard is almost freed by the byline but Everton cling on.

It's not quite backs against the wall for Everton, but City are dominating at the moment, trying to pick their way through the backline and coming back even harder each time they fail.

Toure loops a ball over the top for Sterling to run onto, having snuck in behind Funes Mori, but the pass is overhit and Robles can collect.

Sterling tries to dance his way in from the left but is tackled by Barry who launches the counter. Deulofeu springs into action, sprinting past Clichy, drawing Demechelis out he he beats with ease too. The Spaniard has options in the middle but holds onto the ball for just too long, allowing Otamendi to make the block. Everton have a corner out of it, but City deal with it rather comfortably.

Fernandinho slots a fine ball down the inside right in behind Funes Mori that Aguero scampers onto. He tries to find Sterling in the box but the block is made and City have a corner.

Lots of nice pyro going off around the pitch ahead of kick off. Feels more like a WWE PPV at the moment.

And Everton get us underway at the Etihad.

A quick recap of what happened when these two met in the first leg at Goodison Park. Funes Mori opened the scoring for the home side with an instinctive finish right on the stroke of half time before Jesus Navas swept home his first goal since 2014 to cap a fine counter attack and level the contest.

Just two minutes later, however, Everton took the lead again as Romelu Lukaku stole in between the City centre halves to head home Gareth Barry's cross.

There's a positional change for Everton too this evening with John Stones shifted out to right-back in place of Seamus Coleman.

City are still without their skipper Vincent Kompany tonight but Manuel Pellegrini moved to clam fears the Belgian is facing six weeks out of action.

The injury situation is exactly the same. [Eliaquim] Mangala, Kompany, [Aleksandar] Kolarov, [Wilfried] Bony and [Samir] Nasri are out. I don't think Vincent will be out for six weeks – he will return in a couple of weeks.

"As I said in the last press conference, it's very important how he improves in the next few weeks. We are doing all we can to review Vincent in different places with different doctors. I hope that now when he comes back he will be fit until the end of the season.

Here is Roberto Martinez addressing the press earlier this week.

As we expected, Mo Besic and Kevin Mirallas won't be available tomorrow. We will have a bit more detail [about their injuries] today when both players will be reassessed.

"Phil [Jagielka] is a very important player and we have to remember that he was out for a long time. It's a real opportunity for us to have Phil Jagielka refreshed and fully fit going into tomorrow's game. We need to make sure we use the squad wisely and well.

"There was good news in terms of Seamus Coleman coming on [against Swansea] and showing no effects of being injured. He looks fully fit and we look forward to him participating in the squad.

BREAKING: Joel Robles comes in for Tim Howard again while Leon Osman joins Tom Cleverley and Gareth Barry in midfield.

TEAM NEWS – Everton

Roberto Martinez lost Muhamed Besic to a hamstring injury just minutes into the weekend defeat to Swansea City. The midfielder is still unavailable tonight, as is Kevin Mirallas.

TEAM NEWS – Manchester City

Willy Caballero will replace Joe Hart in goal once again this evening. The rest of Manuel Pellegrini 's changes are likely to be enforced, with Eliaquim Mangala, Vincent Kompany, Aleksander Kolarov, Wilfried Bony and Samir Nasri all still unavailable.

Everton are 90 minutes from confirming a Merseyside Derby in the Capital One Cup final next month. Liverpool's narrow victory via penalties over Stoke City booked their place on Tuesday night and with Roberto Martinez's side leading 2-1 after the first leg, their fate is very much in their own hands.

This will be the third time Manchester City have taken on the Toffees this month and they are yet to record a victory. After leaving Goodison Park with nothing after the first leg, Manuel Pellegrini's side were frustrated at the Etihad a week later as Everton found the defensive stability they have so often lacked this season to help secure a 0-0 draw. Do that again tonight, and they will be within one more win of winning their first piece of silverware since 1995.
