Cheltenham vs Man City LIVE!

Manchester City will be looking to avoid an FA Cup upset today as Pep Guardiola takes his side to face League Two Cheltenham Town.

Cheltenham’s reward for beating Morecambe in the third round is a plum tie against one of England’s top teams - and City must be on their guard at Whaddon Road.

Michael Duff’s Robins are sitting sixth in League Two heading into this clash, which, in all honesty, is a free hit for the minnows considering the firepower Guardiola will be able to call on.

However, City are without talisman Kevin De Bruyne for weeks due to injury, and Guardiola will want his squad to step up and prove themselves in the Belgian’s absence as the games come thick and fast across all competitions.

The match was delayed for six minutes in a goalless first half as fireworks were set off behind the Colin Farmer Stand, while Cheltenham grabbed a shock lead after 59 minutes.

City failed to deal with a long throw, and Alfie May fired in from close range.
