Manchester City are looking to become just the fourth team to win both major domestic cup competitions in the same season, after Arsenal in 1992-93, Liverpool in 2000-01 and Chelsea in 2006-07.
This will be Manchester City’s 11th appearance in an FA Cup and their first since 2013, when they lost 0-1 to Wigan. They’ve won the competition five times (1904, 1934, 1956, 1969 and 2011).
Watford’s only previous FA Cup appearance came in 1984 under manager Graham Taylor, losing 0-2 to Everton at Wembley.
Watford’s 35-year wait for a second FA appearance is the longest since 1967, when Chelsea appeared in their second Final 52 years after first featuring in 1915.
No team to finish in the bottom half of the top-flight table has ever beaten the side to finish top in an FA Cup – the previous lowest was in 1957, when 10th-placed Aston Villa beat champions Manchester United.
Man City have eliminated Watford from The FA Cup in each of their previous three ties, winning 3-1 in 1996-97, 3-0 in 2012-13 and 4-2 in 2013-14; Watford’s only elimination of City in The FA Cup was in the 1985-86 season in the fourth round.
Manchester City have scored 20 goals in the Emirates FA Cup this season, the most by a team in a single season in the competition since Chelsea in 2011-12 (also 20).
Watford have lost their last 10 matches against Manchester City in all competitions, conceding 32 goals in those games. They are winless in 15 games against the Citizens (W0 D2 L13) since a 1-0 win in March 1989 in the second tier.
