Player to watch – Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland has five FA Cup goals to his name this season and will be looking to fire Man City into the Semi-Finals on Saturday evening.

The 23-year-old Norwegian international heads into this weekend's clash with Newcastle in great form having scored 10 goals in his last 10 appearances across all competitions.

Man City's goal-machine to do the business

If Newcastle don't find a way to stop Haaland this weekend then we can't see this game ending in anything but a Man City victory as the former Dortmund striker has been in top form since making his return from injury.
