Manchester City

CITY TACTICS

It’s our trusted 4-3-3 formation this evening as we look to progress in this season’s FA Cup.

Ederson starts in goal, with Joao Cancelo operating at right-back and Oleksandr Zinchenko, who captians the side this evening, on the left. Those two will be charged with getting forward and adding numbers in attack. 

Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake will operate at the heart of our defence, with Fernandinho screening our backline. 

Ilkay Gundogan once again starts, with his guile likely to be key in unlocking the Peterborough defence, and Jack Grealish will join him as part of our central three. 

And up top, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus will provide a variety of goal-scoring threats. 

Our blueprint will be the same as ever: dominate possession, fight hard to win the ball back quickly and attack as often as possible. 

Clearly, the crowd will be a factor, but Guardiola will have pressed home the importance of a good start. 

FORM GUIDE 

Peterborough United have had a testing season so far in the Sky Bet Championship, currently sitting 24th and last in the league with just five wins all season. 

Their most recent outing produced a 1-0 home defeat to Hull City, extending the Posh's winless league run stretching back to December.
