Video: Victorious Mancini expects even more difficult game in FA Cup Final

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says the FA Cup Final will be even tougher for his team than the semi-final against Manchester United.

City booked their place in the Wembley showpiece on Saturday with a hard-fought win over their bitter rivals United.

However, Mancini expects beating Stoke or Bolton in the final to be just as difficult a task.

He said: "It is important that we think that we have another game, which will probably be more difficult than this. In a final, anything can happen and Bolton and Stoke are strong sides."
