"John O’Shea spoke to Sunderland’s official programme – The Red and White – ahead of tonight’s cup clash and this is what he had to say about the game:
'Sometimes you can view it that playing in a cup game can lift the pressure that can come from the battle for league points but I wouldn’t want to play without pressure tonight because pressure to perform can actually help you.
'It is a big game tonight because it’s a quarter-final and they don’t come around too often.
'We want to go into it as positively as we can. Chelsea will be a big test. We know they’ll be likely to make one or two changes and maybe we will have to freshen things up as well.
'We’ll have to wait and see with regard to that but one thing that is certain is that there is a big prize at stake for tonight’s winners and we’d love to go into Saturday’s match with a semi final to look forward to.'”
Kick-off in both matches will be at 7.45pm.
Will we see extra-time in either clash tonight?
"Gus Poyet makes three changes from the side that drew with West Ham at the weekend. In comes Andrea Dossena at the back for Phil Bardsley, while Adam Johnson and Craig Gardner come into the midfield for Fabio Borini and Ki Sung-Yeung.
"The hosts will be relieved to see Eden Hazard, who tormented the Black Cats in that 4-3 victory at the beginning of the month, take his place on the Chelsea subs bench but, despite the eight changes by Jose Mourinho, it’s still a very strong line up for the hosts. Willian, Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz are the only survivors from the starting XI that beat Crystal Palace."
"Nigel Pearson had this to say to Leicester's official website earlier today: 'We've worked hard in this competition so far to earn this tie so I don't think it would be quite right if we weren't looking forward to it.
'I love the cup competitions - they're different which makes it interesting as well because because it's got a slightly different feel to it, but of course it still remains a very tough fixture for us.
'It should be a great attendance - hopefully be a full house - and it should be a really good atmosphere.'"
"Manuel Pellegrini has gone with a predictably strong line-up but has still made eight changes to the side that swept six goals past Arsenal - that's strength in depth for you. Joe Hart, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov, Jack Rodwell, Javi Garcia, James Milner, Jesus Navas and Edin Dzeko come in with a chance to prove themselves.
"There's also four changes for Leicester City after their 1-1 draw with Burnley, with Marcin Wasilewski, Miquel, Andy King and Gary Taylor-Fletcher coming into the side at the expense of Ritchie de Laet, Liam Moore, Matthew James and Jamie Vardy."
Leicester: Schmeichel; Wasilewski, Morgan, Miquel, Konchesky; Knockaert, Drinkwater, King, Dyer; Taylor-Fletcher, Nugent.
Subs: De Laet, Hammond, Vardy, Schlupp, James, Moore, Logan.
Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Lescott, Kompany, Kolarov; Rodwell, Garcia; Milner, Navas, Silva; Dzeko.
Subs: Pantilimon, Nasri, Negredo, Fernandinho, Demichelis, Boyata.
Sunderland: Mannone; Celustka, Dossena, O'Shea, Brown; Cattermole, Larsson, Gardner, Johnson, Giaccherini; Altidore.
Subs: Bardsley, Ki, Cabral, Roberge, Borini, Mavrias, Dixon.
Chelsea: Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Luiz, Cole; Mikel, Lampard; De Bruyne, Willian, Schurrle; Eto’o.
Subs: Blackman, Terry, Essien, Oscar, Hazard, Ba, Torres.
Meanwhile, Harry Slavin is our reporter at the Stadium of Light tonight:
"There’s a sense of déjà vu surrounding tonight’s Capital One Cup clash between Sunderland and Chelsea, as the two teams meet at the Stadium of Light for the second time this month.
"The sides produced a seven-goal thriller at the beginning of December but neither manager will be hoping for a repeat of what Gus Poyet described as a ’crazy game’ in this evening’s programme notes.
"Both sides haven’t had the merriest of times over the festive period but tonight will be an opportunity for one of the sides to bring some much needed cheer to their supporters.
"Sunderland look to be without Jack Colback this evening, while Jose Mourinho looks set to shuffle his pack as the visitors go in search of their tenth straight victory on Wearside."
"Leicester gave things a good go the last time these sides met, with the Foxes scoring twice at the Etihad as Manchester City won a FA Cup third-round replay 4-2 in 2011.
"Manuel Pellegrini's men haven't exactly been careful at the back this season but the real problem for Nigel Pearson's side is in trying to keep them out - City have netted an incredible 47 league goals in just 16 games (just under three a game), eight better than nearest scoring rivals Liverpool."
In the absence of star striker Sergio Aguero, meanwhile, who will Manuel Pellegrini field up front for Manchester City tonight?
Alvaro Negredo? Stevan Jovetic? Edin Dzeko?
If Leicester are to get past Manchester City tonight, they might be looking for a lot from their top scorer David Nugent.
Remember his one goal for England?
"Good evening and welcome to the Capital One Cup quarter-final between Leicester City and Manchester City.
"The visitors are clear favourites for this one - they've scored nine goals in the last two games - and their opponents were Bayern Munich and Arsenal no less. City sit three points off top spot in the Premier League but Manuel Pellegrini would relish any trophy in his first season in charge at the Etihad, so expect a strong sqaud.
"The Foxes are also in fine form themselves, with 39 points from 20 games seeing them to third position in the Championship - just three points off QPR in top spot. Six non-Premier League teams have reached the semi-finals in the last five seasons - and with the in-form Sergio Aguero definitely out injured, Nigel Pearson's men may just stand a chance."
In tonight's other quarter-final, Sunderland face Chelsea.
Will Jose Mourinho win his third League Cup this season?
Match Preview: Sunderland v Chelsea
Looking at our first clash tonight (although both are on at the same time) Leicester are the only Championship side left in the competition.
Can they cause an upset against Manuel Pellegrini's side?
Match Preview: Leicester v Man City
Leicester City v Manchester City
Sunderland v Chelsea
Aston Villa 0-3 Manchester United
Norwich 1-1 Swansea
Tottenham 0-5 Liverpool
It's not been a good day for Andre Villas-Boas - will Spurs stand with their man? Goal will bring you all the latest as we get it. Bye for now.
"I believe I have unfinished business at West Brom so it is with deep regret that I was relieved of duties as head coach.
"Going into this season expectations were high, perhaps unrealistically so, but with it still being only our fourth consecutive season in the top flight, our primary objective had to be to establishing our status in the Premier League.
