Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
David faces Goliath at Whaddon Road on Saturday evening as Cheltenham Town and Manchester City go head to head in the FA Cup last 32. The Robins defeated Mansfield Town in the previous round, but they will have a mountain to climb against Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Citizens have been in a splendid form of late, with the team winning each of their last eight games in all competitions.
Man City recorded a routine 3-0 win over Birmingham City in the last 64, and even though Pep Guardiola is likely to stick to his rotation policy, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise at Whaddon Park. The likes of Cancelo, Foden, Mahrez, and Torres are pushing for a start, while Sergio Aguero remains quarantined. Anyhow, the star-studded Premier League side should make it to the last 16 without any difficulties.
Highlighted Player (Chris Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Man City):
Manchester City are the lest famous of the two major clubs based in Manchester. The club was founded in 1880, but they have been struggling in the English Premier League in the past. Nonetheless, ever since the club was purchased by Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, the Citizens have been playing an important role in the English top flight.
Manchester City won two Premier League trophies under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini (2011/2012 and 2013/2014), but both managers eventually paid the price for some disappointing results. Man City play their home games at the Etihad Stadium and the stadium capacity is 55,097.
Manchester United are regarded as Manchester City’s biggest rivals and the likes of Kun Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Uwe Rosler, Yaya Toure, Sylvain Distin are some of the most remarkable players that played for the Etihad Stadium outfit. Manchester City have won four Premier League titles and five FA Cup trophies and it has to be noted that they made it to the Champions League semis in the 2015/2016 season.
