Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm GMT. Livbe coverage will be available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD.


West Ham will do well to generate any sort of motivation for the fixture, given that they are already trailing City by six goals and are unlikely to cause any sort of an upset at home on their current form.

Manager Sam Allardyce will be looking to minimise the damage sustained and take the form forward to a successful campaign in the Premier League. They come into the game on the back of 3-1 bashing at Upton park against Newcastle and a win here will bode well for their future in the league which is currently under threat.

Manchester City are the most in form team in the league at the moment alongside Arsenal and will be able to rest a few key players, having already secured an almost insurmountable lead in the first leg.

Manuel Pellegrini will call upon the services of Stevan Jovetic, who has been out for major parts of City's campaign. City will face either Sunderland or Manchester United in the final at Wembley, with the Red Devils currently trailing Sunderland 2-1 and need a proper performance to overturn the result.

What the Managers Say

Sam Allardyce: "It's about playing a competitive game of football tomorrow and trying to win it. We're playing for pride and we want to play well. Hopefully we can give Manchester City a really tough game tomorrow night."

Manuel Pellegrini: "We have to play on Tuesday. The semi-final is not finished. Of course we have made an important step (towards the final) but we must see which players will play and the way we will do it."
