Is Cheltenham vs Man City on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch FA Cup fixture


Manchester City travel to Cheltenham in the FA Cup tonight as Pep Guardiola’s team aim to progress to the fifth round in a tournament they last won in 2019.

City, who achieved the domestic treble two years ago by winning the FA Cup, Premier League and League Cup, were 3-0 victors versus Championship strugglers Birmingham in the last round, while Cheltenham required extra-time to see off Mansfield.

This evening’s home side, sixth-placed in League Two as things stand, will know they’ll need a massive performance and a bit of luck to record a significant upset against Man City, who are currently second in the Premier League but will overtake leaders and rivals Man United if they can win their game in hand.

  • Aguero tests positive for coronavirus
  • De Bruyne out for up to six weeks

Here’s everything you need to know about the FA Cup fourth-round tie.
