Manchester City enter the FA Cup at the third round stage today, looking to lift England’s most historic trophy for the first time since 2011 when Yaya Touré struck against Stoke at Wembley to end the infamous silverware drought.
Rotherham are today’s visitors and are in a relegation battle in the Championship after a poor run of results recently. A long winless streak came to an end on New Year’s Day though, when they beat Preston, and Paul Warne will hope his side can pull off a stunning upset today.
Taking charge of his first City match today will be referee David Coote, and here are the starting lineups selected by Pep Guardiola and Warne:
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Foden, De Bruyne (c), Mahrez, Sterling, Jesus
Rotherham United XI: Rodak, Vyner, Ajayi, Robertson, Mattock, Forde, Vaulks (c), Wiles, Taylor, Williams, Smith
The match is NOT on television in the UK. A full list of TV coverage across the world can be found here.
