Video: City Versus Leeds In FA Cup Last 16

The Premier League champions have been drawn to play against The Championship's Leeds in the last sixteen of this season's FA Cup...

The Fifth Round tie will take place over the weekend of the 16th and 17th February.

The Citizens and The Whites have served up some titanic cup clashes in the past and this encounter is likely to prove no exception. Yet the fortunes of these two great clubs, forever bonded by a total hatred of The Stretfords have transformed across the past decade.

The two clubs last met in FA Cup combat in January 2000 at Maine Road, Lids running out 2-5 winners in a humdinger that saw the likes of Shaun Goater and Ian Bishop on target for City with Eirik Bakke, Alan Smith, Harry Kewell (2) and Lee Bowyer sealing a rout.

THIS COULD BE THE LAST TIME:
Mo 22Mar 2004 Leeds 2 - 1 Man City PL
Mo 22Dec 2003 Man City 1 - 1 Leeds PL
Sa 13Jan 2001 Man City 0 - 4 Leeds PL
Tu 05Sep 2000 Leeds 1 - 2 Man City PL

HEAD TO HEAD:
League: 40 City wins, 17 Draws, 37 Leeds wins
FA Cup: 2 City wins, 3 Leeds wins
League Cup: 1 City win
Other Cup: 1 Leeds win
Total: 43 City wins, 17 Draws, 41 City wins

CLASSIC CITY TUBE: Leeds United v Manchester City, FAC3, Jan 7th 1978
mcfcvideos: "A memorable FA Cup third round game at Elland Road in 1978 featuring a Leeds player punch-up, a pitch invasion, mounted police, a blatant penalty denied... and a City win."
