  2. 'Blue Moon blasts out'

    BBC Sport at Bramall Lane

    This is quite brilliant, yet bizarre and unusual. There are car tyres on the pitch, as the sponsors prepare for the trophy presentation. Yes, tyres.

    For what it's worth, Man City's road to this final began with a goalless draw at Birmingham in the group stage in August, which they also settled with victory on penalties.

    'Blue Moon' blasts out on the PA.

    FT: Arsenal 0-0 Man City (2-4 pens)

    Quote Message: That was awesome. I thought the girls were lights out for 90-plus minutes and I'm really proud of the performance. We were a little unlucky hitting the woodwork a couple of times. But this is a goalkeeper's dream - in a penalty situation there's no pressure on us, so it was pretty fun. from Karen Bardsley Manchester City goalkeeper on BT Sport
