Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has suggested that Costel Pantilimon is likely to start ahead of Joe Hart in the FA Cup final.

City defeated holders Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley Stadium on Sunday to set up an encounter with Wigan Athletic next month.

Pantilimon, who has started every game for the Blues in this season's competition, could now get the nod again over Hart for the showpiece event.

"We have four weeks to the final but I think it will be [Pantilimon]," Mancini told Sky Sports News.

Manchester City will face Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup final on May 11.
