Who will win Swansea vs Man City FA Cup fifth round?

The Swans are not a bad side, but complacency is probably the only thing that could trip up City here. Oozing with world-class talent, they should outclass Swansea even if Pep Guardiola opts to rest some of his biggest stars.

"Probably the most important thing now is to stay humble and to approach every game like we did in the last few weeks and months," midfielder İlkay Gündoğan said. "We know we are in a very good moment but we shouldn't take it for granted and not drop any edge and to keep going to do the stuff we have been doing as good as possible."
