Swansea (UK): Pep Guardiola remains coy about Manchester City's chances of winning the quadruple, but his side face Swansea in the FA Cup quarter-finals today standing just 16 games away from a clean sweep of all four major trophies.

Guardiola's team moved closer to the unprecedented silverware haul on Tuesday as they advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 7-0 demolition of Schalke in the Last 16, second leg. City have already won the League Cup, beating Chelsea in last month's final.

A victory at Swansea would see City move into the FA Cup semi-finals, with the EPL title race set to go down to the wire. Guardiola tried to talk down the possibility of City winning all four trophies.

“I said so many times, and I know you are generous and thank you so much guys, but every time you make that comment we lose a competition, so I think you provoke me in that way so, the next one we will see,” joked Guardiola recently when asked about the prospect of a quadruple.
