Pep Guardiola and Manchester City will welcome Rotherham United to the Etihad Stadium in the third round of the FA Cup.

City will face the Yorkshire club on the weekend of January 5th in Manchester and will be hoping they can avoid an early exit similar to last seasons against Wigan Athletic.

The FA Cup is the only piece of domestic silverware Guardiola has yet to win since joining club and he will be sure to go all out this time around.

City have won England’s oldest competition five times in the past, their last success coming in 2011 in a 1-0 win over Stoke City.
