Pep Guardiola’s side enter into the game on the back of a great run of form that has seen City go unbeaten in last 16 games in all competitions including winning last nine games in a row.
Cheltenham currently sit in sixth position in the League Two table after netting 37 points from their first 23 games. Town booked their place in the fourth round thanks a 2-1 win over Mansfield Town (after extra time) in their third round encounter earlier this month.
It will be a true giant v minnow battle.
Manchester City will be without Kevin De Bruyne, Nathan Ake and Kyle Walker to injury. Also will be without Sergio Aguero to covid. Aymeric Laporte is questionable.
