Manchester City winger David Silva is excited by the prospect of playing his first FA Cup tie.

City will face Leicester City in the Third Round.

Silva told the club's website: "I can't wait to play in the FA Cup because it's such a famous competition around the world. I like the challenge of knock-out football, and with Leicester being at home they will be motivated to spring a surprise on us.

"Every team wants to beat us, no matter what competition it is, and this will be no different. We have an important few weeks before that but I will be really looking forward to it."
