Leeds United manager Neil Warnock admits that he is excited to be facing Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has revealed his excitement at the challenge of facing Manchester City in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday.

United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the fourth round to set up a meeting with Roberto Mancini's side at the Etihad Stadium.

"I don't think many people are going to put any money on us," Warnock told Sky Sports News. "But the FA Cup is such isn't it? It's such a great competition.

"It would be a major upset if we went there and won, but we're looking forward to it. I don't think many people, when the team sheets came out, gave us much chance against Tottenham or Everton, but it's a little bit more difficult with it being at the Etihad as well.

"But we're going to enjoy it. There are no league points at stake and I'm sure the fans will enjoy going over there."

Leeds currently sit 11th in the Championship table, eight points adrift of the playoff places.
