Stoke Vs Manchester City
Stoke were beaten in the Premiership in Gameweek 23 when they travelled to The Liberty Stadium. The usually resolute Stoke defence has now shipped 3 or more goals in each of their last 4 matches. Tony Pulis will be looking to keep things tighter at the back when Manchester City visit in The FA Cup. City have closed the gap on League leaders Manchester United with a consistent run of four Premiership wins in a row including an impressive 2-0 victory at The Emirates. Both sides will field strong teams to try and progress in this famous Competition.
Manchester United Vs Fulham
Manchester United unusually conceded in ‘Fergie Time’ when they visited White Hart Lane on Sunday. United fans are more accustomed to scoring goals so late in the game and Sir Alex was furious with the linesman who failed to award a spot kick when Rooney was upended in the penalty area. Two points dropped allowed City to close the gap at the summit to 5 points. Fulham have had a mixed run of form lately with a 2-0 defeat at The Etihad their most recent League outing. Ferguson has speculated that his side could win the treble if his players remain fit and The FA Cup remains an important trophy for The Red Devils.
