What is Newport and Manchester City saying ahead of the FA Cup clash? 

Mike Flynn, Newport: "I hope they bring a strong team. I want to pit ourselves against the best Man City. I want to see how we do against Pep Guardiola in a tactical battle and how we can manage them.

"Let's show what we're about and let's have a go at them. We'll be having a go at them, the pitch will be a little bit different to what they're used to.

"I just hope a few of them have an off day and all my players play to the best of their ability, because if that happens at Rodney Parade we've got a chance. They're littered with so much quality, but it's a chance for our players to stand up and be counted."

Pep Guardiola, Manchester City: "We have to adapt. We play in Premier League against Tottenham after NFL games earlier in the season. We have to accept it. It is what it is, and that's all. I saw the [Newport] game against Leicester and Middlesbrough.

"In the second leg they were outstanding, much better than Boro. Normally when we play in the Premier League games, the players already know the opposition.

"Most of the strikers score goals, they are incredible. They use the channels, they put the ball in the box. We are going to suffer in the box because they are taller and stronger than us. In some areas they are better than us."
