Pep Guardiola insists Newport County can cause Manchester City plenty of problems in the FA Cup.

City are scheduled to take on the League Two club who have had a fairytale journey so far. The Wales side had a monstrous scalp in Leicester City in the round three followed by a brilliant victory over Middlesbrough in the fourth round.

City do have a shaky history in this particular competitions as there has been a number of setbacks including a defeat against Blackburn Rovers where a mistake from Kyle Walker proved too costly for them.

Guardiola said, “Both their strikers score goals, they are incredible from set pieces and throw-ins. They go for the second balls and use the channels to put the ball into the box and make us defend deeper.

“Especially in our box we are going to suffer because they are taller and stronger than us, so in some areas they are better than us.

“We have to try and bring our game in the way we are stronger than them. Which team is going to control these areas and bring their own game? That will be the advantage to go through.”
