Bristol City vs Manchester City: Lineups and LIVE updates In the fifth round of the FA Cup, Manchester City will face off against Bristol City, a team from the Championship.
Since their 2-0 defeat to West Brom on Boxing Day, Bristol City’s performance in both the Championship and the FA Cup has been nothing less than a fairy tale. The team has remained undefeated in all fixtures since then.
Bristol City’s unbeaten streak extends to 12 games in all competitions as they make their way to the fifth round of the FA Cup once more. However, Nigel Pearson’s team faces a historical challenge, as they have not progressed to the quarter-finals of the tournament since 1974.
As the reigning champions of England’s Premier League travel to Ashton Gate, Bristol City will need to deliver a sensational performance to secure their spot in the quarter-finals, a feat they have not achieved in 49 years.
Despite being presented with several opportunities to overtake Arsenal in the title race, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City has struggled to find their form this season. The Gunners have dropped points on numerous occasions in the league, but City has failed to capitalize on these slip-ups.
