  1. Tyne Tees

Final score: Sunderland 1 - 3 Manchester City

It all started well for Sunderland.

Fabio Borini put the Black Cats 1 – 0 up after just nine minutes with a goal set up by Adam Johnson.

Manager Gus Poyet celebrated from the touchline, arms outstretched.

But, in the second half, two Manchester City goals in two minutes ended the dreams of bringing a major trophy back to Wearside for the first time in 40 years.

Yaya Toure scored at 54 minutes with a shot 30 yards from the goal into the top corner.

Two minutes later, Samir Nazri put Pellegrini’s men ahead.

And in the 89th minute, Jesus Navas sealed the win for the favourites.

Final score: Sunderland 1 – 3 Manchester City.
