Manchester City's bid for a historic quadruple rolls into Wigan for Monday's FA Cup fifth round tie, with avenging a shock defeat to the Latics in the 2013 final also in mind.
The cup tie in March 2014 fell between a victorious League Cup final against Sunderland and the upcoming second leg of the Champions League round of 16 game against Barcelona.
Romelu Lukaku scored a brace to help Manchester United advance into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 2-0 win at Huddersfield but not without a controversial intervention by the Video Assistant Referee at the John Smith's Stadium.
Most points in a season: A long time before Jose Mourinho gained his reputation for defensive tactics, he guided Chelsea to 95 points in 2004-05 at a rate of exactly 2.5 points per game.
The £25million January signing excited the travelling fans at the Spotland with his majestic dribbling and attacking runs, which ultimately resulted in his first goal for the North London club on the 59th minute.
Haiya! Wigan have played in the Premier League in recent years but have not only been relegated to the Championship but they have been further relegated to League One.
The Owls will travel to the Liberty Stadium after holding their former manager Carlos Carvalhal and Swansea City to a goalless draw. For Huddersfield, it's a choice of what holds more significance for them, a Premier League survival chance or an even bigger outside chance to win the Cup. I've got a team here that's capable of getting through to the quarter-finals.
The Latics' reward is a home clash against Southampton, and the League One side are just one victory away from an unlikely spot in the last four.
In the FA Cup quarterfinal draws, all the big clubs will avoid each other- surprising no one!
