If we draw one of last year's top-4 they will field a weakened team, which means we, arguably, would have a better chance of beating them - Man City will field a strong team regardless as Hughes will have to win a trophy this season - spurs and pompey, I think will put the league first, and so will depend on how their league standings are going at the time (same could be said for us although I think we will go all out to win) Bring 'em on!

roversfan95 - and I thought I was optimistic! I think we will be ok as whoever we draw they will not play full strength (Arsenal kids, Man U reserves etc etc) so we will have chance to get a scalp! I will predict Spurs at home!!!!

Stoke played a pretty weakened side against Pompey, so I wouldn't read to much into that. Any home tie realistically would be ok, although I'd like to avoid Citeeeh!!!! like friedelNo1 says they will be desperate for any trophy after the amount they have spent

Well whoever we get it'll be tough - to win the cup you've got to beat the best sooner or later
