Manchester City defeated Jacob Murphy and Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 this evening to advance to the quarter-finals.
Newcastle, of course, knocked out West Brom at the Hawthorns last night 3-2. This is a tough draw but with the teams remaining it was never going to be easy.
However, we played quite well against Manchester City in our 2-2 draw at the end of November. The match is tentatively scheduled for the 21st of March which will means our fixture against Aston Villa will have to be rescheduled.
Steve Bruce should once again field a strong side. A win against Manchester City in less than three weeks means we’ll have a trip to Wembley for the semi-finals.
Norwich beat Tottenham on penalties 3-2 after full-time and extra time finished 1-1.
Former Newcastle goalkeeper saved two penalties in the shootout.
