The Manchester City vs Wigan Athletic FA Cup match is set for Sunday, Mar. 9, 2:05 p.m. GMT (10:05 p.m. ET), at Etihad Stadium.
The game will be broadcast on BBC Manchester and BT Sport 1 in the United Kingdom.
The game will also air on Fox Sports 2 USA and Fox Deportes.
Live stream is available on Fox Soccer 2Go.
Manchester City will be without striker Stevan Jovetic (knee) and defender Matija Nastasic (hamstring). City’s top goal scorer (15) Sergio Aguero should feature after returning from injury in the side’s League Cup victory last Sunday.
Wigan’s own top scorer (5) Nick Powell is back in training from a hamstring injury, but is a match day doubt. Winger Callum McManaman could return from an ankle injury.
When these two sides faced each other in the FA Cup last year, it was in the final at Wembley. Former Wigan boss Roberto Martinez famously led Wigan to a 1-0 victory against Manchester City in that clash.
While Man City face Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League three days after this Sunday’s match, manager Manuel Pellegrini is clear that his sights are trained on the Latics rather than the Catalonia giants.
“We are just thinking about the game against Wigan,” said the Chilean.
“We know it is a tough game. They are playing very well and have won their last four. When we finish on Sunday we will start thinking about Barcelona.”
New Wigan manager and former player Uwe Rosler had a slightly different set of priorities — keeping the match from distracting his side’s focus in the league.
When asked about his emotions being drawn with Man City, the German said: “My first reaction was to ban all talk about the game.
“We only started talking this week about it – I think it was important prior to that that we focused on the league.
“And now, off the back of such a good month, I have said to the boys that this is a bonus game. Not that we will take it easy, but we will go into it with no pressure whatsoever. The pressure lies on City.
“We have already achieved a wonderful cup run – it is only the third time the club have been in the sixth round in our history, and doing that after last year’s win has made it even more special.”
