“You hate losing against anybody, but City? But it just makes you more determined.

“I have family who are Blues and there are Reds everywhere too, so the desire to win is massive.

“It’s an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. It’s massive.

“It’s the biggest game we’ve had against City for a while. Whoever loses will be devastated.
