Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has warned his side against complacency when they take on Newport County for a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The Premier League leaders are still alive in all four tournaments and continue with the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple. The match against Newport, who are 82 places below them on the English football ladder should represent the easiest assignment this season. 

"I expect the best performance by each one of them. Focus on all the details. That is the best way to prepare for Schalke and the League Cup final. When you want to play a final in one week, or a tough game in the Champions League, the best way to prepare is to make a good game," said Guardiola. 

"The players have to risk. It would be a problem for them if they don't risk and play like a professional to win the game. If they think about the next game, maybe the next one they stay here and they don't travel to Germany. In those situations, I'm not a sweet guy. They have to take it seriously and play the game like it deserves."

"The cup competition is so nice, we got to the semi-finals in the first season, but last season we were out at this stage so we want to go through."
