Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is set to revert to a full-strength line-up.

Mancini made 11 changes for the midweek Carling Cup win over the same opponents, giving the likes of Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Mario Balotelli and Sergio Aguero a night off.

Former England midfielder Owen Hargreaves is again ruled out with a minor calf problem while controversial striker Carlos Tevez is highly unlikely to be recalled.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is still without injured striker Steven Fletcher.

Fletcher has a calf problem, but he may be fit for the next game against Swansea.

Ronald Zubar (groin) is still not match fit, while Kevin Foley (ankle) is also out as Wolves look to respond to the 5-2 Carling Cup defeat they suffered to Mancini's side in midweek.

Manchester City (from): Hart, Richards, Kompany, Lescott, Clichy, Zabaleta, Kolarov, Savic, K Toure, Y Toure, Milner, Barry, Silva, Johnson, Nasri, De Jong, Aguero, Balotelli, Dzeko, Pantilimon.

Wolves (from): Hennessey, Elokobi, Stearman, Craddock, Henry, Ward, Hunt, Ikeme, Johnson, Berra, Jarvis, Vokes, Hammill, Milijas, O'Hara, Doyle, De Vries, Guedioura, Edwards, Ebanks-Blake.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
