Unless you have been on another planet you will all know that this is the dress rehearsal for the final of the most loved cup competition on the globe.
Wigan Athletic travel the short distance for a local Premiership game against last season’s champions & probably this season’s runner’s up Manchester City.

Joe Hart, Jack Rodwell, Micah Richards and Maicon will probably all start while Roberto Martinez might just surprise everybody by playing an unchanged starting XI to fox Mancini and his meticulous plans.
Last season we lost on the road three-nil while this season’s result also went in the Sky Blues favour with a two-nil win at The DW.
