Here, Press Association Sport takes a numerical look at the showpiece fixture.

20 – goals for City in the tournament so far, winning 7-0 against Rotherham, 5-0 against Burnley, 4-1 at Newport, 3-2 over Swansea and 1-0 against Brighton.

10 – Watford have scored only half as many, though did not concede a goal until their quarter-final against Crystal Palace.

11 – City will be contesting their 11th final, having won five and lost five previously.

£3.6million – prize money awaiting the winners, double last season’s top prize. The runners-up will receive £1.8m.
