Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook has already insisted he will not be going shopping to match or compete with the style of his opposite number, Pep Guardiola, when his Manchester City side make the short journey to the DW Stadium for an FA Cup tie on Monday night, but he will have a much tougher task matching him on the pitch. City are winning most games they play this season with real ease, and the dream of an unprecedented quadruple is still very much on.

But the Latics, second in League One, will take heart from yet another cup run. This is a repeat of the fixture on Wigan’s greatest ever day, the 2013 FA Cup final, when they won the trophy. Despite relegation from the Premier League that season, Uwe Rosler took them to the semi finals a year later, though they lost to eventual winners Arsenal. West Ham and Bournemouth are among their casualties so far this season, but facing arguably the best team in Europe right now should prove one step too far.
Wigan are absolutely flying in League One and look certain to return to the Championship at the first attempt. But they recently lost top spot after successive defeats to Southend United and Blackpool.

City, on the other hand, have lost just once all season and are able to make plans for the next round of the Champions League after a 4-0 win over FC Basel in the first leg of their round of 16 tie.
Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus will miss out again for City, but Paul Cook has a fully fit squad to choose from.
