• City were knocked out by Championship clubs in 2008 (Sheffield United) and 2009 (Nottingham Forest), but since then they’ve eliminated all six second tier sides they’ve confronted, including Watford and Leeds in the current run in which they have not conceded a single goal.
• If selected, Edin Dzeko will be making his 100th Manchester City appearance.
• Having won their first FA Cup ties in five seasons, Barnsley are now aiming to pull off their biggest shock since 2008 when they last reached the semi-finals, knocking out Liverpool and Chelsea in the process.
• Since then the 1912 winners and 1910 runners-up have twice been knocked-out by top-flight West Ham and once by Swansea. Manchester City is the first Premier League they are meeting in this run, in which one goal has been conceded from three successive victories.
