Match Preview and Prediction
Peterborough United have enjoyed a fine run in the Emirates FA Cup this season. But what seems to be the problem at the moment is the club’s current struggles in the EFL Championship.
Peterborough United have lost five out of their last six EFL Championship fixtures, which is a big problem that could dent their hopes of survival.
After 33 matches, Peterborough United sit at the bottom of the Championship table with just 21 points alongside Derby County. Their chances of getting a good result against the Cityzens looks slim.
Manchester City, under Pep Guardiola in the last four seasons, has been super dominant in almost every competition. This season, Man City’s only lost trophy was the EFL Cup.
Man City are one of the most consistent teams in the English top flight. The Cityzens have just lost once in their last ten matches.
Pep Guardiola’s men fell to Tottenham Hotspur after Antonio Conte’s men fought off the dominance from the Cityzens. The Cityzens, however, took revenge with a win over Everton on the side.
Manchester City has the edge over Peterborough United due to their current form. Also, Pep Guardiola could utilise his reserves, looking at the poor state of his opponents.
Score Prediction: 1-4
The club announced no significant injury concerns.
Pep Guardiola could rest a bulk of his first-team players in preparation for the Premier League and Champions League fixtures. Goalkeepers Zack Steffen is out with a back injury while Cole Palmer sits out due to a Muscle injury.
