The back up has been impressive during his appearances and we could see him in the cup game this weekend.
The RB desperately needs game time, evident from the midweek game. With the tough fixtures coming in fast and the 5 point gap, Manchester City will need all hands on deck – but Rico though?
Having only played half of the midweek game, we may see him return to the starting line-up to protect Stones for the league – who had an incredible, MotM performance at Stamford Bridge.
Having missed out on the last few games, this could be an opportunity to get some minutes under his belt before the next Premier League fixture.
Similar to Walker, the Portuguese’s performance was underwhelming. Clearly needing minutes to get back into the swing of the champions, this FA Cup fixture could be the perfect opportunity.
