The fourth and final quarter final of the FA Cup will be contested between Newcastle United and Manchester City at St. James Park. One has to say it has been an underwhelming domestic season for Manchester City considering their high standards. They have lost grasp of the Premier League and will now be eager to go the distance in the Cup competition. As for Newcastle United, they are 13th in the league and seem pretty much safe to remain in the top division next season as well. However, a win for them against a quality opponent can book them a place in the iconic Wembley Stadium for the semis and finals if possible.
Date- Sunday, June 28
Kick-Off- 11:00 PM (IST)
Venue- St James Park
Isaac Hayden and Matt Ritchie were both taken off against Aston Villa after sustaining knocks and are doubts for the FA Cup tie. Steve Bruce will be wanting to have either of the Longstaff brothers as they will be assessed prior to kick off. Joelinton and Almiron will be expected to feature higher up the pitch, while the likes of Saint Maximin, Bentaleb, Shelvey should accommodate midfield.
Phil Foden missed out the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea due to injury but could make it time for his side here. Sergio Aguero sustained an injury and is out for the remainder of the games. Joao Cancelo and Oleksandr Zinchenko could start as the full backs for City. Eric Garcia could make his long awaited return for Fernandinho. It will be interesting to see if Pep Guardiola gives Leroy Sane a start.
