After lifting the Carabao Cup at the weekend, Manchester City will turn their attention to more domestic silverware when they travel to Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday in Wednesday’s FA Cup clash.
The Citizens are the holders after beating Watford 6-0 in last season’s final and have only lost one of their last 21 domestic cup matches.

However, it is hard to see that run continuing for the Owls, who have won just one of their last eight fixtures and conceded three goals in three of the most recent four.
