City lie second in the Barclays Premier League, have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League and are already in the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup.

And despite the workload which accompanies a successful season, the City boss is hopeful the third-round tie against Blackburn at Ewood Park will be the first step on the road to Wembley in May.

"We are going to make changes because we have played too often in the last few weeks," he said after his side played four games in 12 days over the festive period.

"We are going to try to have a good squad and to win the first game in our FA Cup campaign because for our team it is an important cup.

"I said from the beginning of the season if we are going to play in every competition we must play with exactly the same importance.

"The FA Cup is a very traditional competition here in England and in every country of Europe the cup is always an important competition.

"I just told the players it an important test for us, not only for the team but for individual performances.

"Some players will have the chance to play now in the FA Cup. As I said with the Capital One, both cups finish at Wembley and to finish at Wembley with a final is important for every team."
