H2H Comparison: 13-4-6
Manchester City: The Citizens celebrated their first title after two years by winning the League Cup last Sunday, beating Sunderland 3-1 at Wembley. They started numbly and were down in the score just 10 minutes in. At the beginning of the second half they did not left room for questioning, equalizing with a magnificent shot from Toure (55') and taking the lead a minute later with Nasri. In the minute Jesus Navas formed the final score. It’s still hard to forget the last meeting with Wigan in the FA Cup final last year, where they lost the trophy conceding a late goal. However this year they have already gotten a vengeance, demolishing Wigan with 5-0 in the League Cup (24/09). They have won 8 of their last 9 encounters against Wigan. To get this far in the Cup, they eliminated Blackburn (1-1 away, 5-0 home), Watford (4-2 home), and Chelsea (2-0 home). On Wednesday, they travel to face Barcelona at Camp Nou, where they have a hard task of overturning the 0-2 of the first leg. Unavailable: central defender Nastasic (13 app.) and striker Jovetić (7 app./1 g.).
