Manuel Pellegrini: “It’s the same team we play that we played in November – we started in Remi Garde’s first game. We drew against them in their stadium so I think tomorrow will be a similar game and very difficult also.”
Fernandinho: "The FA Cup is very important for the team, the fans, for everyone. We go to play against Villa who have already proved they can be a tough team in their own stadium."
Jores Okore: ""Last season's run to the final was really special. It was amazing to go to Wembley and go that far in a tournament with some quality teams."
Ashley Westwood: ""David Silva is by far the toughest opponent I've faced. Ever since I've played in the Premier League I've thought the same. He's like a ghost at times, you don't know where he is."
