Newport County manager Michael Flynn is dreaming of guiding his side to the biggest giant killing in recent FA Cup history when the Welsh club host Manchester City this weekend. The 15th placed team in League Two take on the defending Premier League champions on Saturday in a true David versus Goliath cup tie – LIVE on talkSPORT! Few are giving the Exiles much hope, especially with Man City in such ruthless form of late. Having thumped League One Burton Albion 9-0 in the Carabao Cup, many are expecting another mauling. But Newport are on a run of their own, with two shock victories over Leicester City in the third round and then Middlesbrough via a replay in the fourth. Newport County stars celebrate their win over Middlesbrough – they are in the fifth round for only the second time in their history They also gained a number of neutral fans when they held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw in the fourth round last season, forcing a memorable replay trip to Wembley which ended in a 2-0 defeat to Spurs. City are the next team to come to town and, while few will give the Exiles a chance, boss Flynn is confident his side will not lie down against Pep Guardiola’s superstars. “It’s going to be difficult, I’m under no illusions whatsoever about how difficult it’s going to be,” he said on Friday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “They’re arguably the best team in Europe and I think they’ve got the best manager in the world at the moment in Pep Guardiola. “It really is David versus Goliath. “You look at the finance difference between the clubs, the facilities and everything… but you never know. It’s the FA Cup and stranger things have happened. Man City have won their two FA Cup games this season by an aggregate score of 12-0. “I hope they bring a strong team. I want to pit ourselves against the best Man City. I want to see how we do against Pep Guardiola in a tactical battle and how we can manage them. “Let’s show what we’re about and let’s have a go at them. We’ll be having a go at them, the pitch will be a little bit different to what they’re used to. “I just hope a few of them have an off day and all my players play to the best of their ability, because if that happens at Rodney Parade we’ve got a chance. “They’re littered with so much quality, but it’s a chance for our players to stand up and be counted.

Is he actually thinking they can do something?’ But If I don’t think that then how are my players going to believe that? “I’ve got to lead them the right way and give them the belief that if they can play the game of their lives they can stop the likes of Aguero and De Bruyne. “Let’s not forget a lot of them marked Harry Kane out of the game for long periods, the players have that ability when they’re on their game.” Listen back to Newport County manager Michael Flynn on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above!

Tottenham Hotspur face a huge clash with Borussia Dortmund tonight as they attempt to reach the Champions League quarter-finals. Spurs’ involvement in the competition this season has been dramatic to say the least, staging a near miracle comeback to take their place in the round of 16. Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino gives orders to his team. They take on the German giants with Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Ben Davies all definitely out, while Danny Rose is unlikely to start following an injury to his shin against Leicester City. This leaves manager Mauricio Pochettino with a number of selection headaches going into the match but this could lead to him springing a surprise against Dortmund at Wembley. Best ever Champions League round of 16 matches In recent weeks, Tottenham have used several different starting formations and against the Foxes on Sunday they swapped to a back-three for the final third of the game, and even changed systems slightly during this spell. So, how could they look? talkSPORT.com takes a look. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL STORIES” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”recent” /] 4-4-2 (diamond) For quite a lot of the campaign, Pochettino has favoured a narrow midfield and an extra forward so we sense there is a good chance he’ll opt for this again. Spurs started like this against Leicester City and created chances but the Argentine may opt to pick Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son together, ahead of Fernando Llorente, to give his side more threat on the counter. As Danny Rose is absent from the start, Jan Vertonghen could play at left-back again, as he did against Newcastle United. Eric Dier would come in for starlet Oliver Skipp, pushing Harry Winks towards the left. 4-3-3 Like it or not, Llorente has, despite looking a level below his team-mates at times, has notched two goals and made three assists in his last five games and may be key up against youngster Abdou Diallo and Omer Toprak. If he can hold the ball up for Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son then Spurs could benefit from his presence on the pitch. The attacking midfielder duo would, though, be operating in wider roles and this could stifle some creativity and see Spurs try and counter their opponents more often than not. 3-4-2-1 Towards the end of the match with Leicester City, Pochettino moved to this formation as he attempted to see the match which may point to him using it against Dortmund. If so, the way it allowed the Foxes’ three-man midfield to control the game will be a huge worry for Spurs fans. Moving to this formation would likely see Kyle Walker-Peters come in for Danny Rose with Jan Vertonghen at left centre-back. Elsewhere, Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko would hold the central areas with Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son attempting to disrupt Dortmund’s passing. 3-5-2 With Tottenham losing control in midfield against Leicester on Sunday following their switch to a back-three, Pochettino, slipped Victor Wanyama in for Fernando Llorente and made the two-man midfielder a three-man one. This got Spurs back on an even keel and something similar could work against Dortmund with either Son or Llorente dropping deep to cover Axel Witsel or his midfield partner when they’re defending.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND are clearly a better team than the one which lost twice to Tottenham last season. Yet Jan Vertonghen expects his patched-up Tottenham team to hold the fort before the big guns of Harry Kane and Dele Alli return for the second leg on March 5. Harry Kane and Dele Alli will both be back for Spurs in their second-leg against Dortmund Danny Rose, suffering with a shin injury, is the latest to join the club’s injury list with Alli (hamstring), Kane (ankle) and Ben Davies (groin) all certain to be missing for this first leg Champions League knockout clash. Vertonghen, expected to fill in for Rose at left-back, is confident a packed Wembley will inspire Tottenham‘s players and help ensure there will be everything to play for in three weeks’ time. By then, as the Belgian confirmed, both Kane and Alli are expected to return. Yet Spurs must deliver a clever and mature performance against the Bundesliga’s top team. Jan Vertonghen, pictured with Eric Dier left, is expected to fill in at left-back tonight Jan Vertonghen is banking on a packed-out Wembley to help inspire Spurs against Dortmund Wembley should feel a world away compared to the flat atmosphere witnessed for the game against Watford, when just 29,000 turned up. Tottenham only got over 40,000 for the previous two matches against Newcastle and Leicester. IV MADE UP MY MIND Ivan Perisic wanted to join Tottenham over Arsenal in January with Inter Milan winger set to get dream transfer this summer Asked about Spurs having never won a home knockout match in the Champions League, Vertonghen said: “I don’t know about the stats but we definitely want to win this game. “We feel so good as a team, so strong. We know a couple of guys will come back after the first leg as well. It’s a tough fixture for us but we showed last year we can beat everyone.

It definitely helps when the stadium is full and rocking. I bet we will see that for the game. It’s a great fixture for everyone in football and that’s why we all became football players. We want to play these games at Wembley, one of the best stadiums in the world and if we can get one of the best crowds in the world, then it will definitely help us to get a result there. “We knew that Dele and Harry were going to miss a couple of weeks with their injuries. We know we have a good squad with players who can fill in in different positions and we left it a bit late in the last four games in the League. But we kept on fighting in the League. “The goal that Harry Winks scored against Fulham gave us the belief to never stop fighting and we’ve shown that. Normally, we can kill games a bit earlier but when we’ve left it late we’ve carried on fighting.” Vertonghen accepts Dortmund will be a tougher prospect compared to the one which saw them suffer 2-1 and 3-1 losses to Spurs last term. It will be fascinating to see the impact Jadon Sancho will have on proceedings. Hotshot Jadon Sancho is just one of the attacking threats Spurs will have to stop Mauricio Pochettino admits his current injury problems are fair from ideal Vertonghen said: “If you compare to last year, they started very well in the league when we faced them in the home game and we beat them at home. With the away game, they were not doing that well in the League and we were doing very well in the Premier League and Champions League. We were on top of them. “*I was speaking with some of the guys with my national team about Sancho and they are impressed. He came there as a young player with not too many expectations for this season but he’s done very well, scored goals and lots of assists so impressed by his development and always exciting to see young player do so well.”* Pochettino was less forthcoming about Sancho and avoided a question when asked whether he tried to sign the player.

Rumours. We have seen the quality that he was showing at Manchester City and his national team. I think we were talking in the last few years that he was a massive prospect. “Of course he is showing now in Germany that he can cope with the pressure to play in the Bundesliga or in the Champions League. He is talented.” As for injuries, Pochettino admits the situation could be better. He said: “For this game, it will be impossible for Rose to start from the beginning. We need to assess him to see if he can be on the bench. In the morning, we are going to assess if he can help the team by being on the bench if we need him. But for the starting XI, he is not available. “I think all the players who are not involved– like Dele, of course, Harry and Ben Davies, along with Janssen – could be back soon. “If we are going to be there competing for the Champions League and the Premier League then we need them all fit of course. I hope, yes, everyone can be fit in the next few weeks.”
