Wigan shocked the footballing world 10 months ago when they beat big spending City 1-0 to lift the famous cup and Manuel Pellegrini will hope there is no case of history repeating itself on Sunday.

The two sides met earlier in the season in the Capital One Cup with City running out 5-0 winners. The club would go onto lift the cup and they will head into the game buoyed by their 3-1 win over Sunderland last weekend at Wembley.

With the games coming thick and fast for City, they travel to the Nou Camp to face Barcelona in the Champions League after this game, Pellegrini is likely to make some changes to his side although Stevan Jovetic (hamstring) and Matija Nastasic (knee) won’t play any part.

Wigan are missing a number of players with Scott Carson (thigh), Gary Caldwell (calf) and Shaun Maloney (hip) expected to miss out and Martyn Waghorn, Ryan Tunnicliffe and Rob Kiernan cup-tied.

Elsewhere, Sunderland meanwhile will bid to bounce back from their Capital One final defeat when they take on Hull at the KC Stadium.

Gus Poyet’s men surrendered an early lead at Wembley last weekend and the players will keen to get back to winning ways and secure their place in the semi-finals not to mention getting one over former manager Steve Bruce.

Bruce has already overseen two wins in the league against the Black Cats and a hat-trick of wins would see the Tigers reach their first FA Cup semi-final in 84 years.

They will have do so without cup-tied forwards Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic while Robbie Brady, Paul McShane and Joe Dudgeon miss out through injury.

Sunderland meanwhile have just men absent with Kieran Westwood injured and Liam Bridcutt cup-tied.

The day’s final game will see Championship side Charlton take on league one outfit Sheffield United.

Chris Powell’s side deprived the neutrals of a Sheffield derby when they beat Wednesday in the last round and with his side struggling in the league he will welcome the challenge of bringing his side one step closer to their first FA Cup final since 1947.

Standing in their way is a united side that is enjoying a revival under Nigel Clough. The former Derby manager, named league one manager of the month for February, has guided his side to the brink of the play offs as well as masterminding wins over Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest on their run to the quarter-finals.

Both teams have doubts head of the game with Clough sweating on the fitness of John Brayford (calf), Jamie Murphy (groin) and Harry Maguire (knee) while Charlton have worries over Michael Morrison (thigh), Jordan Cousins and Simon Church (knocks).
