India Fantasy Prediction:

Wigan have the best of memories from 2014 when they beat Manchester City 2-1 in the same competition at their home. However, it will be quite difficult for them to match Pep Guardiola’s men. Moreover, City will field a strong team as they do not have any midweek fixtures this week.
