SWANSEA boss Graham Potter must wish he was back in sleepy Ostersund as he prepares for the visit of all-conquering Man City.

It's FA Cup quarter-final weekend – and it's good to see three ties today – with the Welsh side facing the toughest task at tea-time against the all-conquering quadruple chasers.

City warmed up with a ridiculously easy 7-0 win against Schalke in the Champions League while the Swans went down 3-0 at managerless West Brom – their third defeat in four games.

Pep Guardiola has shown no mercy to cup rivals recently while Welsh sides Cardiff, Newport and Swansea have lost nine ties in a row against the Manchester giants over the past two seasons and netted 31 goals with just two conceded.

City have hammered the Swans 5-0 at home and 4-0 away in that spell and today the scoreline could be what they want.

Obviously much depends on the strength of team Guardiola puts out but his squad is so rich they should cover the -2 handicap no matter what. Best price on City is 1-7 with City -2 paying 11-10 at betfair.

No point in picking a first scorer until line-ups are revealed. If Sergio Aguero starts back him and if he and Raheem Sterling are missing go for Gabriel Jesus or Riyad Mahrez.

Tie of the round sees Wolves entertain Man United tonight and there could be a shock.

Much has been written about how well Wolves have performed against the top six and they showed their mettle again last week when only a late Eden Hazard goal denied them victory at Chelsea.

Bookies are slightly disrespecting the Molineux men by making them double United's price with McBookie offering 9-4 with Ole Solskjaer's men 5-4.

Wolves held Jose Mourinho's Man United at Old Trafford and I'm backing them not to lose at 7-10 with Marathonbet.

There should also be goals involving two sides who look to play football and both to score is 4-5 at Betfred.

In between the ties involving the Manchester giants we have Watford v Crystal Palace which could be more exciting than it looks.

Both teams are better in attack than defence and Watford have won two league meetings 2-1 this season. A third Hornets win pays 11-8 at McBookie whileWatford and btts is 18-5 with BetVictor.

The final tie tomorrow is less appealing with Millwall hosting Brighton. The Lions' Den is a tough place to go and it's bound to be fiery but I'm on the Seagulls although a best 6-5 is a little short.

Brighton have notched back-to-back Premier League wins to lift morale and under-rated striker Glenn Murray is worth a look at 4-1 with bet365 to score first.

There are just three games in the Premier League today with West Ham a short price to beat Huddersfield at home.

Bournemouth v Newcastle and Burnley v Leicester aren't easy to call but there should be goals in both.

Tomorrow Liverpool head for basement boys Fulham aiming to run up a big score after reaching the Champions League last eight. They are 2-1 with betfair to win by three or more.

Best bets in the Championship today are Norwich at Rotherham and Sheffield Wednesday, unbeaten under Steve Bruce, at home to Hull at 11-10 with Unibet.

In League One a double on promotion chasers Luton and Sunderland at home to Gillingham and Walsall respectively pays 11-10 at Marathonbet.

Bury are looking good for automatic promotion from League Two and have won eight and drawn two of their last 10 at Gigg Lane. They are 3-5 at bet365 to beat lowly Cambridge.
