It's hard to see anything other than Man City making it past Bristol City to take their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals when you consider the embarrassment of riches at manager Guardiola's disposal.

Six-time winners of the competition, haven't failed to make it past the fifth round of the FA Cup since being stunned by Wigan Athletic at this stage in 2018, and they'll be conscious to guard against complacency when they make the trip south to Bristol this midweek.

Guardiola is likely to rotate his charges for this FA Cup tie ahead of a busy schedule of fixtures both domestically and in Europe, with Germany international midfielder Ilkay Gundogan seeming primed to play after being withdrawn after just 55 minutes during the Citizens' comprehensive 4-1 win at Bournemouth at the weekend.

Gundogan's goal threat in a Man City shirt is often unheralded, with the 32-year-old having hit 10 and 17 goals in all competitions in his past two seasons respectively. 

Appointed club captain at the start of the season following the departure of Fernandinho, Gundogan has only mustered three goals in this campaign so far and will no doubt be aiming to add to his account at Ashton Gate.

The Robins can take optimism from the fact the Premier League's second-placed side have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six consecutive matches in all competitions. however, and having scored in each of their last 11 games themselves they could fancy their chances of causing last year's semi-finalists problems defensively.
