Match Commentary

90' Houllier is bought some time, Kevin Keegan and City will have to wait for next season for the FA Cup. Maine Road however, has seen the last of the FA Cup.
90' Liverpool, never threatened, are through with a typically workmanlike performance. City disappointed and were unable to get past an organised Houllier tactical plan.
90' Murphy fouls Huckerby. One last City chance to get the ball into the area from a free-kick. Ball came out to Wiekens but he drives it into a wall of red shirts. The whistle blows...that's the end of it.
