The Netherlands international had a quiet game as the action was all up the other end. He did well whenever he called upon, apart from a slip which eventually found James Milner - but the midfielder's curling shot went narrowly over an empty goal. Produced a fantastic save late on to keep his side in it.
Kept Navas quiet well enough and went close with a curling effort after his initial free kick was blocked. Substituted at half-time with an injury.
Fast becoming a strong candidate at right-back after a slow start to his Newcastle career. Superb down the right-hand side and put his body on the line when needed. Pinpoint crossing.
Negredo had the beating of him at one point - a clever flick over his head - and was helped out by Williamson, but quickly recovered. His slip in extra time allowed the Spaniard to tap home.
Stood firm at the back and won every long ball and header. Has not put a foot wrong since replacing the injured Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor.
Never stopped running throughout the game. If a City player had the ball, he made sure that it was not it for long.
The stand-in captain was booked, which looked a little harsh. He broke up play and sprayed the ball around with ease. Back to his first-season best.
Never won a header all game, no surprise given his height. His sidefooted volley probably should have tested Pantilimon.
A much-improved display from the out-of-sorts striker. His first-half shot was helped in by Shola Ameobi but he was in an offside position. Really should have scored in extra time but Pantilimon produced a fine save at his feet.
Tried in vain to make something happen and went close with a first-half header. Grafted all night and should have netted with a late header, though he was offside anyway.
Newcastle's longest-serving player had a goal ruled out for offside and a volley tipped around the post by Pantilimon in a typical grafting display before he was subbed.
Joe Hart's understudy played his part in the game and produced a great save to keep out Shola Ameobi's volley. Claimed verything from the air and did not put a foot wrong as he looked to impress Manuel Pellegrini.
The right-back had City's two best chances. The first was on the stroke of half-time, bursting through the middle of the park before shooting wide, and the second a header that went over the bar.
The centre-back had a lively Papiss Cisse with which to contend and just about did enough. Produced a fantastic clearance off the line, scooping Ben Arfa's volley over the bar.
Performed well at left-back and put some great crosses in. Could have had an assist but Richards headed over.
The centre-back was relieved to see the lively Shola Ameobi substitued after a tough test.
Had a very quiet game in front of the defence, when he really should have dug in and helped the centre-backs out. Looked a little out-of-sorts.
Had one chance of note, a rising shot over the top of the bar, but never really got going as Tiote and Anita controlled the midfield.
Almost imperceptible in the first half. A better showing the second but struggled to get the better of both Haidara and Dummett.
The former Newcastle man went close without scoring after Tim Krul's slip as his curling effort went just over an empty goal. Later in the game, he played a one-two with Silva and released Dzeko, who duly dispatched the second goal.
The striker plugged away but found Williamson in fine form. Finally got the better of the defence when he was found by Milner in space, nipped the ball around an outstretched Krul and slotted home.
His first involvement in the game was to cross straight at the goalkeeper as he came on as a substitute. Later replaced by Hatem Ben Arfa as Alan Pardew looked for the win.
The midfielder steadied the ship after coming off the bench.
H. Ben Arfa
Came on in place of another substitute as Pardew looked to go for the win. His dink over the defence found Cisse he could only shoot at Pantilimon, while his volley is superbly cleared off the line by Joleon Lescott.
Industrious as always and slotted in well when Richards went off injured. He also took over as captain.
His appearance from the bench rejuvenated City and he put in a better perfomance than the man he replaced.
The striker came on a lot earlier than he would have imagined, replacing Jovetic after an injury. His wayward first-half volley and a chip which Krul tipped away for a corner was a warning to the defence and he nipped in behind a floored Yanga-Mbiwa to tap home in extra time.
