Match Commentary

94' That's all folks but join us for live commentary of today's big one, Arsenal v Manchester United, from 16:00 GMT on ESPNsoccernet.
94' FULL TIME. MAN CITY 2-0 PORTSMOUTH: City move to within a point of Spurs in fourth with an unconvincing victory. Goals from Adebayor on his return and Kompany were enough for Mancini's side who did enough without ever really getting out of first gear. Pompey's woes continue but there are plenty of positives to take away with O'Hara, Boateng and Utaka all performing impressively today as Avram Grant's side battleed until the end.
94' It's all over...
