Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City eye the FA cup trophy as his side face inform Bristol City away from home.

Manchester City are aiming to win their first FA Cup since 2019, but have only made the final one other time since lifting the trophy in 2011.

Pep Guardiola says the mood in his team is “exceptional” after their 4-1 win over Bournemouth in the league, although he admitted he has not had much time to watch Bristol City play due to the number of fixtures his side have.

“I have not had much time to watch Bristol but I will do everything to get as much information to the players,” he said.

“They have no defeats in their past 12 games. Their manager has a lot of experience and I know him from when he managed Leicester and Watford.

“It’s always tough when you go away from home against a Championship team. At home, it would be different. It’s an important competition and it is a serious team that will play there.”

Meanwhile, manager Nigel Pearson says Bristol City need to be at their best against Premier League title chasers Manchester City in their FA Cup tie,.

The Robins host the six-time FA Cup winners in the fifth round in Tuesday’s sold-out game at Ashton Gate.

“We need to be as good as we can be on any given day,” Pearson told reporters. “If you’re as good as you can be and your opponents turn out to be better than you, there’s not a great deal you can do about that.”
