Prediction: Sheffield Wednesday 0-2 Man City

Manchester City will no doubt be leggy after successfully coming through their Carabao Cup Final with Aston Villa on Sunday. However, Wednesday have won just twice in the league since the turn of the year and, though a run in the FA Cup has brought more encouraging results, City should prove too strong.
