Preview

Peterborough United have had a difficult season so far in the Sky Bet Championship, currently sitting 24th and last in the league with just five wins all season.

City are off a controversial win vs Everton and will look to add a cup title here by advancing to the next round. Some rotation could be expected ahead of a huge Manchester derby.

It should be a very interesting match.

Team News

For Man City, only Cole Palmer is out. Zinchenko and Steffen are questionable.

Borough have Butler and Beevers out.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-1 Peterborough
