Manchester City were still selling tickets for their FA Cup semi-final clash just two days before the match.
City have reportedly sold 25,000 tickets to date, having been handed roughly 30,000.
The club also sent back a further allocation of 2,000 tickets supplied by the Football Association, as these were more expensive than the originally allocated tickets.
