Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
After defeating Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup final, Man City will be looking to advance to the FA Cup quarter-finals when they take on Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough. The Citizens failed to defend their Premier League trophy, but they are still vying for the FA Cup and the Champions League titles. Considering that Pep Guardiola is likely to field the best possible side against Sheffield Wednesday, we predict that the star-studded team will emerge triumphant in Wednesday’s football match without any difficulties.
The Owls have been having their ups and downs in the Championship this term, and, as a result, they sit in the middle of the table. Seeing that Sheffield Wednesday conceded eleven goals in total in the previous three meetings with the Citizens, anything but a routine away win will be a major surprise.
Highlighted Player (Moses Odubajo):
Moses Odubajo is a professional footballer who plays for Hull City. Odubajo is a right winger, but he is capable of playing at right-back as well. He made 42 appearances for Hull City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to the Premier League, although he then suffered a serious injury next summer.
Moses began his career at Leyton Orient and after spending several seasons on loan at St Albans City, Sutton United and Bishop’s Storford, in 2014 he signed a three-year deal with Brentford for an undisclosed fee. Odubajo scored 3 goals in 45 games for Brentford in the 2014/2015 Championship campaign. At the end of the season he signed a £3.5-million-worth deal with Hull City.
Odubajo was born in Greenwich on 28 July, 1993 and he made a total of six appearances for England U-20 team. On 4 December, 2014 he was reportedly invited to the Nigeria U23 training camp, but opted against switching his allegiance to the Super Eagles.
Highlighted Team (Man City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
