Manchester City facing Rotherham United presents one of the biggest mismatches in football but also carries the beauty of the FA Cup with a Premier League title contender taking on a side just three points above the relegation region in the second tier. City are clear favorites here; we expect that Pep Guardiola will want to rest his key players after the grueling festive period fixtures in preparation for the tough league matches ahead but they will still have the quality to see off Rotherham at home. As for the Championship side, the biggest concern at the moment is picking points to fuel their survival quest and they head to The Etihad with no pressure to win. Rotherham have two wins in their last 19 matches and they have conceded in each of their last 12 matches while they have no win in their last 16 competitive away matches. It is such a poor record for the Championship side, who have lost 11 of the last 15 away games and they will have a really tough outing against City who have 13 wins in 15 home matches. City have six wins in their last 10 FA Cup matches while Rotherham United have five straight losses in the competition. This will be just the second meeting between the two sides; City have never lost to Rotherham United, winning one and drawing the other. The only two meetings between the two sides came in the Championship in 2001/02 season.
