Hello, FA Cup!

The oldest competition in the history of football starts this weekend for the Premier League teams, including Manchester City. The Citizens travel to the capital to face fellow Premier League friends West Ham United. This will be the first time City visit the London Stadium, and it's also the first time Pep Guardiola gets a taste of the FA Cup.

One would think the FA Cup doesn't really matter to Pep, but you would be wrong. Guardiola actually loves to win Cups, and he won four of those in Spain and Germany during his time at Barcelona and Bayern Munich. The Catalan manager has a crazy record in Cup matches (never lost a game in Germany and has three losses in four years in Spain) and will want to make a deep FA Cup run.

City undoubtedly got the toughest draw out of all Premier League teams in the third round, and a win against the Hammers would boost City's confidence not only for the FA Cup itself, but the whole season.

This will be a very fun game. Don't miss it.
