Sheffield Wednesday vs Man City Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Man City take aim at another domestic title as they travel to Hillsborough for a FA Cup fifth round clash against Sheffield Wednesday. Fresh from their EFL Cup triumph and driven by the impressive Gabriel Jesus, City are backed to have the upper hand over the Championship team.

Sheffield Wednesday Form


Sheffield Wednesday progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup thanks to a 2-1 victory at QPR with Morgan Fox and Sam Winnall getting their goals. They have struggled in recent weeks and head into Wednesday’s match off the back of a 3-1 Championship defeat against Derby with Josh Windass getting a late consolation.

The defeat to Derby means Sheffield Wednesday have now claimed just one win in their last eight matches. Defending has been a major problem for Garry Monk’s men in recent weeks having conceded three goals in three of their last four matches.

Sheffield Wednesday News


Sheffield Wednesday have no major absentees for Monday’s match with midfielder Massimo Luongo and striker Steven Fletcher both back from injury.

Manchester City Form


Man City hammered Fulham 4-0 to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup with Gabriel Jesus netting a brace while Ikay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva were also on target. The Citizens are in high spirits at the moment after beating Aston Villa 2-1 on Sunday to claim their third consecutive EFL Cup title.

City are well off the pace in the Premier League title race but will hope to add the FA Cup to their domestic haul in a bid to give their season some measure of success. Pep Guardiola’s men have won their last four matches but have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last two.

Gabriel Jesus has impressed whenever he is called upon having scored four times in his last seven matches. 


Manchester City News


Striker Sergio Aguero limped off late in the EFL Cup final and is likely to miss Wednesday’s match. He joins centre back Aymeric Laporte who is already ruled out with a hamstring problem.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Man City Head to Head


Sheffield Wednesday have a 38-32 advantage with 22 draws from 92 previous matches against Man City. The Citizens have however claimed the upper hand in recent times with six wins from the last seven meetings.

Both teams met during the 2014-15 FA Cup with Man City claiming a 2-1 victory. James Milner scored a brace for the Citizens while Atdhe Nuhiu was on target for Sheffield Wednesday.
