Roberto Mancini says that he has yet to decide which players he will choose for Manchester City's FA Cup final clash with Wigan Athletic at the weekend.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has refused to give too much away about his team selection ahead of the FA Cup final this weekend.

The Italian made eight changes to his side for the 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad on Tuesday night, having claimed before the match that it was a chance for a number of players to stake their claim for a place in the final.

Despite the win, Mancini remains tight-lipped on who will receive a starting berth to face Wigan Athletic in the conclusion of the competition.

Asked if he has now settled on a side for a trip to Wembley this weekend, Mancini told Sky Sports News: "Maybe. We have four days. It is important after this game to recover our strength.

"We didn't take a risk with some players. I think so."
