Manchester City are one win away from Wembley in the FA Cup, perhaps the most realistic chance of silverware remaining this season. In the way stand Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough, a team who already troubled City this season when they held the Blues to a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.
Today’s early kick-off comes from the Riverside Stadium with the winners set to enter the semi-final draw on Monday night. City will need a good performance to beat a Boro team struggling in the league, but sensing a big day out at Wembley Stadium.
Mike Dean is today’s referee, and here are the teams selected by Pep Guardiola and his counterpart Aitor Karanka.
Middlesbrough XI: Guzan, Barragan, Bernardo, Gibson, Fabio, Clayton, Leadbitter, De Roon, Stuani, Traore, Gestede
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Stones, Clichy, Touré, Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling, Sané, Agüero
