Five minutes until kick off.
Newport will be wanting to progress for the magic of the cup, and also for the massive amounts of cash they will receive to sustain them for a couple of years.
You can send your thoughts to me at @lxndrnthrtn.
Michael Flynn is not too optimistic: "If we win this, whether it's extra time or penalties and I don't care how we do it, it will be the biggest shock in FA Cup history. I say that with the biggest respect to other big giant-killings. My reasons for that are because of the sheer gulf in finances, the quality of the players Man City have, the level they are playing at, and that they have the best manager in the world [Pep Guardiola] right now."
Guardiola is expecting a tough match: "They are taller and stronger than us. In some areas they will be better than us. They have done incredibly well in this competition. What they do, they do really well. We have watched many games to see what they do."
Newport have Regan Poole in their line-up. He started his career with the club but he is back on loan from Manchester United, which could add an imaginary frisson to the game.
It's a weakened side for City. But it's still a strong one - there's Zinchenko, Danilo and Foden who aren't used to regular games under Guardiola, but otherwise the only really notable absentee from the 16 is Sergio Aguero.
