Newcastle boss Howe: FA Cup draw had me almost driving off the road!

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe admits drawing Manchester City in the FA Cup quarterfinal almost had him "swerving off the road"!

The Magpies have already beaten City in the early rounds of the Carabao Cup this season.

"I was driving at the time [of the draw] and almost swerved across the road," said Howe.

"It wasn't the tie we wanted - nobody wants to play Manchester City four times in a season.

"But when you analyse it, I think you realise that to win the FA Cup you will probably have to beat Manchester City at some stage in the competition, we are just going to have to do that sooner that we would have hoped.

"We have to give it everything to try to win. It will be difficult, but we have to believe we can do it."
