Man City’s top scorer last season, the 24-year-old Sergio Aguero, scored what turned out to be the winning goal, sending a header over Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

The Argentinian’s goal was achieved in rare form - Aguero rarely nets with his head!

Cith have been inspired in their last few matches and are in scintillating form going into the FA Cup Final and their upcoming Premiership clashes at the end of the campaign.

Manchester United are 10 points clear of second place City at the top of the England Premier League table - however Aguero is keen to bring the FA Cup back to the Etihad Stadium this season and promises to fight to the finish for the Premiership silverware.

Superstar striker Aguero is clearly delighted to have booked the opportunity to win another trophy this season.

“Of course I am very happy, that’s what we were looking for and obviously we achieved it,” said Aguero.

“We play as a team and I do my best for the team, although yes, I scored the goal.

“To be honest, sometimes the more games you play the better it is because you keep the intensity levels quite high. Sometimes it goes against you, and obviously today the pitch was quite large so therefore there was tiredness there in the end,” reflected Aguero.

“It is always important to win something. Obviously we are slightly away from the Premier League and we know that we could have done better,” he admitted. “But if we can win a trophy once a year it is very important and that’s what we will try to do.

“Of course we have a good team. We must continue the way we are doing, so we can try and win the FA Cup and continue to go forward in the Premier League. That’s what we are trying to achieve.”

The Blues next clash with Wigan at the Etihad Stadium, in "a dress rehearsal", for May’s FA Cup Final.

“It is another important game for us, and if we continue the way we are we will win.”

City’s first half performance showed off tremendous attacking talents, but Chelsea threatened a late challenge after Demba Ba’s strike got them back into the match after 66 minutes.

Ivorian Yaya Toure, was Man City’s bossman as he owned the center of the field with no successful opposition on the pitch for much of the match. Toure was named man-of-the-match.

“I thought we played very well in the first half. It was a fantastic performance from us but Chelsea came back strongly in the second half and we were happy for the result,” reflected Toure.  “This has not been an easy season because opponents have studied us closely but we can still win a trophy and finish second in the Premier League and make our fans proud of us.”  

Toure believes Manchester City's FA Cup semi-final victory proves that he made the right choice when he recently signed a new contract to stay on at the Etihad Stadium on a five-year deal to keep him at City until 2017.

Last season, Toure scored the goal that won City their first major trophy for 35 years, the 2011 FA Cup - and he was key in ending City's 44-year wait for the Premiership title last campaign.

Toure told City's official website: "I know I made a very good choice to sign a new contract because I want to continue to make history and continue to be part of this story of the club. Because of those fans, it would be difficult for me to leave."

"The most important was the performance of the entire team," Toure said after the match. "Carlos Tevez played very well, even the goalkeeper was fantastic. When we needed to control the game, we controlled the game and when we needed to defend, we defend.

"It was very tough. We played very well in defense. Chelsea have fantastic players like Hazard and Wembley is not a small pitch, it is very big and very open, very wide. We saw the desire of Man City. I thought the team fought for the fans."

Pantillimon Key to Manchester City's Victory : Man City 2-1 FC Chelsea

Costel Fane Pantilimon is a towereing Romanian footballer who is under contract to Man City until 30.06.2016. Pantilimon is the tallest player in the Premier League, at 6 feet 8 inches tall.

Man City boss Roberto Mancini has pledged to keep faith with Pantilimon for Manchester City’s FA Cup final after his key defensive showing against Chelsea on their road to Wembley. Mancini suggested Pantilimon will keep his place for the final against Wigan on May 11

Pantilimon has conceded only one goal this season, and Mancini decided to deploy the 26-year-old instead of regular No.1 Joe Hart in the crucial semi-final.

Pentilimon gave a powerful performance in the 2-1 victory, where he denied both Juan Mata and Demba Ba an equaliser - and saved the match.

‘Costel did very well,’ said Mancini. ‘He is a good keeper and he deserves this situation because he has been here for two years and has done very well behind Joe Hart.

‘It is a good situation for Joe too.

‘We have four weeks to the final but I think it will be Pantilimon.’

David Silva and Roberto Mancini Have Praise for Rafa Benitez

Benitez has been unpopular with Chelsea fans since he started his new job at Chelsea this season.

“I think Rafa is a good manager, he doesn’t deserve all these bad things that he has there. He has worked hard and worked well for Chelsea," said City boss Mancini. “Football is strange. But he is still one of the best managers.”

Man City’s Spanish midfield star David Silva was coached briefly by Benitez at Valencia.

“I played one friendly under him when I was 16 against Castillon nine or 10 years ago," said Silva. “Of course, I’ve followed his career very closely. He’s a very, very good manager.

“I saw what he did when he was at Liverpool. He’s a great manager. I haven’t worked that closely with him but I know he’s studied the game,: continued Silva. “He’s into the tactical side of the game and is very creative. He analyses football massively.”

Silva may miss the battle due to injury.

“We will decide on Sunday morning on David,” said Mancini. “We don’t know if it’s possible for him to play or whether it might be a risk if he does. He has a chance, but I don’t think he can recover fully.

“He may be able to play some part, but we will make a final decision as late as possible.”

Premier League : Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City

Sergio Aguero scored the winner that delays Manchester United's claim to the 2012-2013 England Premier League title as noisy neighbors and rivals Manchester City won 2-1 to close the gap to 12 points.

City does not believe they could win the Premier League this season but played with pride as they gained three points to move further ahead of Chelsea and Spurs with a victory at Old Trafford.

United remain the favorite to claim the Premiership title for the 20th time.

Substitute Sergio Aguero scored the winner 12 minutes from time that gave City their second successive victory at Old Trafford.

James Milner opened the scoring for City early in the second half before an own goal from City captain Vincent Kompany put United level.

Eight players were cautioned during the competitive clash that was United first defeat in 18 league games.

Wayne Rooney was back in United's attack after recovering from the groin injury that kept him out of the FA Cup defeat at Chelsea. Rooney was booked for a two-footed lunge at Milner, and  Kompany was shown a yellow card for a late challenge on Ashley Young.

City took the lead six minutes after the break when Milner's low 20-yard shot glanced off Jones to beat David de Gea. Eight minutes later a header ricocheted in off the back of Kompany for an own goal that leveled the score.

Mancini brought in Aguero for Samir Nasri. Kun flashed adrive high past De Gea.

City's win was only their third success at Old Trafford since 1974. Last season City won the derby 6-1.

Man Utd: De Gea, Da Silva, Ferdinand, Jones, Evra, Young, Carrick, Giggs, Welbeck, Rooney, van Persie. Subs: Lindegaard, Valencia, Hernandez, Nani, Cleverley, Kagawa, Buttner.

Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Nastasic, Kompany, Clichy, Barry, Toure, Milner, Nasri, Silva, Tevez. Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Dzeko, Kolarov, Javi Garcia, Aguero, Toure.
