About this programme
Action from the semi-finals at Wembley Stadium, featuring Manchester City v Manchester United and Bolton Wanderers v Stoke City, as the line-up for the showpiece match was confirmed. The Manchester rivals were meeting for the seventh time in the last two seasons in all competitions and City had won just one of the prior clashes, but were determined to remain in contention to win this trophy for the first time since 1969. In the other encounter, both teams were making their first appearances at this ground since it was rebuilt, and each club will have felt they had a genuine chance of returning here for the final. Presented by Matt Smith, with analysis by Andy Townsend.
