  • Claudio Bravo, Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy out once again.
  • Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden, Danilo and Fabian Delph can all expect to play here.


  • Newport are 15th in League Two and will host defending Premier League champions and current leaders Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday. Nothing is expected of the Welsh outfit and they will hope to enjoy a momentous occasion for the club.
