Blues look to book another Wembley date
Swift treasure trove...
City have already played at Wembley three times this season and can today book a fourth trip.
The FA Community Shield and Carabao Cup clashes with Chelsea and the Premier League game with Spurs all finished in victory without conceding a goal.
If the Blues can win in South Wales, it will give City fans yet another trip to North London and the chance of a first FA Cup final for six years.
Stats and milestones
City have won 10 of the past 11 meetings with Swansea in all competitions including wins of 5-0 and 4-0 in the Premier League last season.
The teams have never net before in the FA Cup.
Swansea are unbeaten in seven games at The Liberty Stadium
City will equal a national and Club record if we score three goals or more today with no Club managing four goals in each round on four successive occasions since the Blues did in 1926.
Phil Foden is City's leading scorer in this season's FA Cup with three goals.
