Man City boss Pellegrini to hand Lopes Cup chance tonight

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has hinted Marcos Lopes will see action tonight against FA Cup opponents Blackburn Rovers.

Lopes and U21 teammate Emyr Huws are both in the City squad.

"Lopes is a very young player," said Pellegrini on Tuesday, during his press conference ahead of the Blackburn tie.

"He is just 18 or 19 years old and he must work every day to have the level to be part of the squad but he's a young player that has a lot of condition and I hope in the future he will do it."
