Expect bucket loads of goals
Sorry Peterborough fans, we are backing this game to absolute rain goals. The Posh come into this match having shipped three goals to fellow Championship strugglers Hull at the weekend and now they entertain a Man City team that have scored 26 goals across their past 10 games – including four against the Championship league leaders in the previous round. Given Peterborough are barely fit to lace the boots of a side like Fulham, this game could well go goal crazy. We're backing over 4.5 goals.
Man City will win with plenty of room to spare
We've already touched on the fact we think we'll see a lot of goals in this match and, just in case we needed to clarify, we think it will be Man City scoring the vast majority of those goals. That's why we are backing Man City to win the game with a minus two (-2) handicap. City are a juggernaut and capable of taking any team in the world apart; Peterborough will be powerless to resist if Pep Guardiola's men turn up with the bit between their teeth. Given they've had a wobble – by their standards – of late in the shape of a loss and a narrow, referee assisted victory an extra motivated City side isn't out of the question.

Peterborough vs Man City: It's predicted lineup time
There isn't a single Peterborough fan that could tell you with a straight face that they fancy their team to win this game. That said, the lack of expectancy combined with likely Man City changes could be their best chance of causing a surprise.
Peterborough Predicted Lineup
Peterborough have changed manager in the last week. The new manager bounce did not arrive at the weekend though as Grant McCann saw his side humiliated by struggling Hull on their own patch. A game against Man City is not the ideal fixture to follow that up with.
Predicted lineup – Benda, Knight, Edwards, Kent, Ward, Coulson, Brown, Norburn, Szmodics, Morton, Marriott
Man City Predicted Lineup
Man City will arrive in Peterborough fully expecting to win the match even if they do opt to make a fair few changes. They've bounced back from their Tottenham loss by beating Everton and they can now focus on this FA Cup match knowing they have a cushion over Liverpool in the Premier League.
Predicted lineup – Steffen, Walker, Laporte, Ake, Cancelo, Fernandinho, Gundogan, McAtee, Delap, Jesus, Mahrez
