Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini suggests that he will play his strongest team for Sunday's FA Cup fifth-round tie with Leeds United.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has suggested that he will play his strongest possible lineup for Sunday's FA Cup fifth-round clash with Leeds United.

However, the Italian has confirmed that he will continue with Costel Pantilimon in goal instead of Joe Hart as he has done in the previous two rounds.

"We play with the best team. I will do some changes because I have two or three players injured but after that, I will play with the best team," Mancini told Sky Sports News.

"I will play Costel like always in the FA Cup. Costel is a good keeper, he deserves to play."

City welcome Championship club Leeds to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
