Pep really isn’t holding back, naming a near full strength senior squad against a team that is currently 21st in the Championship and only 3 points away from the relegation zone.
Here is City’s lineup:
How we line-up in the #FACup! ⚽️
City XI | Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Foden, Mahrez, De Bruyne (C), Sterling, Jesus
Subs | Muric, Danilo, Laporte, Sane, Bernardo, Fernandinho, Sandler

It is absolute filth and people are at least expecting City to score 5 today.
The reaction hasn’t been all positive about Pep’s choices though. Should he have given some youth more of a chance?
Rotherham: Don’t worry lads, they’re bound to put out a week side.
City post team sheet:
Rotherham: oh FFS!!!

Way too strong of a team. Why not Muric and more kids?
