Given that Manchester City clobbered seven goals past Rotherham United of the Championship in the third round of the FA Cup, smashed League One’s Burton Albion 9-0 in their Milk Cup semi-final and hit Maurizio Sarri’s travelling circus troupe for six last weekend, it’s safe to say that League Two’s Newport County are going to be up against it when they host the Premier League champions on Saturday evening. By The Fiver’s mathematics it could end in a 20-0 win for City. Cripes! In fact, The Fiver’s special Pluckometer machine (sponsored by Roy Essandoh) tells us that a win for the underdogs would register at Ronnie Radford multiplied by the Crazy Gang plus Mickey Thomas on the sliding scale of big FA Cup upsets. Maybe City should be forced to play with 10 men. Or drop Sergio Agüero for Georgios Samaras, Kevin De Bruyne for Jamie Pollock and Aymeric Laporte for Richard Edghill; anything for a sense of romance.
