There may be more than just a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at stake this weekend following reports that Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini could be sacked if his side lose to Leeds United this Sunday.
The Italian boss, who has been swift to dismiss such suggestions, heads into the match on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Southampton, which has narrowed the club's chances of clinching the Premier League title this season.
Leeds arrive at the Etihad Stadium with an equally poor run of form, which consists of two defeats and one draw in their last three Championship fixtures.
Manchester City: LDDWW
