According to Swansea City’s manager Graham Potter his team can shock Manchester City in the FA Cup Quarterfinals tonight at Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City is not doing well in the English Championship, after losing four of their last five league matches, which puts them in the 15th position of the table.

But they still know that a good day could give them a potential victory, even if that means battling against Premier League’s leaders Manchester City.

The game between these two sides will be played tonight in the FA Cup Quarterfinals at Liberty Stadium.

“If it was over two legs you’d have no chance because the quality is so high, but in a one-off match anything can happen,” Swansea boss Graham Potter told the BBC.

“Clearly they are the best team in the United Kingdom – they are one of the best in the world.”

“We face a huge challenge but it’s a brilliant challenge for the players. You know the odds are stacked against you but it is football. You have to believe you can win,” he added.

“It would be up there because of how late it is in the competition and how clearly Manchester City want to win the cup, and also the gulf in quality between the two teams,” added the Swansea boss.”

“The step from the Championship to Manchester City is not just one level, it’s quite a few levels,” he added.

“My dad and brother are coming and my wife – it will be nice for them.”

“My aunt’s going to be there as well but she’s a Manchester City fan. I’ll need to speak with her about whether she is cheering for us or them. She might not get a ticket,” he concluded.
