    Championship side Swansea host Premier League champions Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-finals this weekend, with the visitors aiming to complete a historic โ€˜quadrupleโ€™.

    Hereโ€™s all you need to know about the clash in South Walesโ€ฆ

    Form

    Swansea: WLWLL

    Swansea are in transition following relegation from the Premier League last season, with Graham Potterโ€™s side making an indifferent start to life back in the second tier.

    A strong FA Cup run has brought some positivity back to the club, though they face a daunting task with the visit of Pep Guardiolaโ€™s Manchester City.

    The Swans currently sit in 15th in the Championship, and have former City youngster Bersant Celina amongst their ranks. Oliver McBurnie, who has missed their last two games through illness, offers Swanseaโ€™s biggest goal threat, the Scotland international having scored 16 league goals so far this season.

    City head for Wales with hopes still high for an unprecedented โ€˜quadrupleโ€™ of major honours. With the League Cup already won, they face Swansea in the last eight with their eyes on a second domestic cup success.

    Pep Guardiolaโ€™s side are in imperious form, with Tuesdayโ€™s 7-0 Champions League thrashing of Bundesliga side Schalke their latest display of attacking prowess.

    Sergio Agรผero has been in prolific form of late, though could be rested as Guardiola shuffles his pack. Teenager Phil Foden could be handed an opportunity, having come off the bench to score in midweek.
