THE PREDICTION

Man City comfortably dispatched Newcastle in the FA Cup quarter-finals and they will be confident of doing so again on home turf. They will be stung by the shock loss to Southampton where they did everything but score and that is ominous for Steve Bruce’s men. They struggled to compete in the cup match and contain their more illustrious opponents and it is difficult to see any other outcome than a comprehensive home win.
