Key quotes

Manuel Pellegrini: “The priority for my team is to try and win every game, it doesn't matter which competition you are in. That gives you an ambitious mind and a winning mind."

Willy Caballero: “They are a good team who fight in every match and we’ve studied them closely and seen all their matches this season. They’re not easy to beat and we only won our game at the Etihad in the final minute so we know we’ll need to play really well to get a result."

Alex Neil: "I've made no secret of the fact that the league is the most important thing, but we want to try and build on our momentum. You want to get a good cup run. We'll put a team out tomorrow that will be good enough to win the game, no question."
