Manchester City can move a step closer to their quadruple dream when they take on fellow Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion in a FA Cup semifinal clash billed for the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

Pep Guardiola and his players have already won the Carabao Cup this term via a penalty shootout win over Chelsea and have also been able to keep the dream of a quadruple alive (four trophies) by staying in contention for three other competitions including the FA Cup.

Manchester City are presently at the top of the Premier League table just ahead of title rivals Liverpool while they have a quarterfinal tie against North London giants Tottenham Hotspur on the horizon in the Champions League.

Before the first leg of their Champions League tie with Spurs, they have to navigate the Brighton hurdle in the last four of the FA Cup.

The last time the two teams met in the FA Cup was in 1983 when the Seagulls won 4-0 in their fourth round tie.

For their latest FA Cup meeting, Manchester City are overwhelming favourites to seal a FA Cup final spot with the odds of 1.14 according to Bet365 while an unlikely win for the Seagulls is at the odds of 17.00

A possible stalemate between the two teams is at the odds of 8.00.
