This Sunday Newcastle United battle it out with Man City at St James’ Park for a spot in the semi-finals (by 630pm).
The Magpies have not gotten to the semi finals since 2005 but face a wounded City team hard-pressed to make amends in some way for failing to retain their top flight title.

Man City played an energy sapping encounter at Stamford Bridge just on Thursday night and have a quick turnaround for this fight.
Fernandinho faces suspension after getting a red card in the 2-1 defeat at Chelsea. Sergio Aguero is sidelined by injury. Let’s see how the cookie crumbles in this cracker.
