Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Peterborough and Manchester City face each other at Weston Homes Stadium in a David-vs-Goliath FA Cup clash. Peterborough are fighting hard to secure the Championship survival, while Man City are on the right track to defend their Premier League title. The Posh are on a five-game winless run ahead of Tuesday’s match, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as big underdogs.
All Beevers, Butler, and Taylor should miss out with injuries for the home side. The Citizens, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Everton. Fit-again attacker Gabriel Jesus is pushing for a start, as well as Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez. Pep Guardiola can count on his first-team regulars for the FA Cup game, and we predict that the Premier League side will make it to the quarter-finals without any difficulties.
Highlighted Player (David Cornell):
Born in Waunarlwydd, Wales on March 28, 1991, David Cornell is a goalkeeper who plays for Northampton Town in the League Two. The 180-cm tall shot-stopper is a product of the Swansea City football school, but he did not make any appearances for the Swans at senior level.
Cornell played for the likes of Port Talbot Town, Hereford United, St. Mirren, and Portsmouth on loan before signing a permanent contract with Oldham Athletic in the 2015/2016 season. In the summer of 2016, he joined Northampton Town on a two-year deal.
Speaking of his international career, David Cornell has three caps with the Wales U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. The Northampton Town goalkeeper wears the number 1 jersey, and his preferred foot is right. He has a contract with the Cobblers until June 30, 2020.
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.
