Also watch the highlights of all the quarter final matches on The League Cup Show on Wednesday at 11:05pm GMT on BBC One.


Leicester manager Nigel Pearson blamed their lack of precision in front of goal as they bounced back after two straight defeats to draw at home against Burnley. Having gained only one point from their last three matches in the Championship, they lie third in the table and are in the hunt to secure a promotion spot in the Premier League for next season.

So far in the Capital One Cup, Leicester have beaten Wycombe Wanderers, Carlisle United, Derby County and Premier League side Fulham in the last round; while City routed Wigan Athletic by five goals to nil while getting the better of Newcastle United en route to setting up the quarter final clash.

Meanwhile, the 2011/12 Premier League champions come into this game on a high after having an excellent week that saw them achieve a 3-2 victory against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in Germany and then thrashing league leaders Arsenal at the Etihad 6-3 on Saturday.

The visitors scored a staggering 72 goals in all competitions this season and manager Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping that his side maintains their goal scoring form as he desires to bring silverware to the Etihad this season.

What Managers Say

Nigel Pearson: "We shouldn't have fear playing against them. You clearly have to respect the fact we go into this game not being favourites. We have to go into the game with a positive mindset and make sure our game is as good as it can be. Can we beat them? Why not?"

Manuel Pellegrini: "The Capital One Cup is very important. That's why we have tried from the beginning to play with a good team. A final at Wembley is always important. Of course, when we have a good squad, it is easy for a manager to make changes."
