Team news

City

Pep Guardiola revealed he is planning to ring the changes, handing first-team minutes to those who have not received much gametime this season, such as Danilo, who continues his build up to match fitness after two months out with injury, Oleks Zinchenko and Brahim Diaz.

Kevin De Bruyne is out after sustaining a lateral collateral ligament lesion in training, while Claudio Bravo is also unavailable, having sustained an Achilles tendon injury. The Chilean 'keeper underwent scans, which confirmed a rupture in the tendon of his left foot.

Benjamin Mendy is also a doubt, having missed City's recent matches with Fulham, Lyon and Cardiff with a foot problem.

Oxford

U's manager Karl Robinson was only able to name six substitutes in Saturday's home defeat to Walsall.

Marcus Browne (knee), Fabio Lopes (knee), Rob Hall, Simon Eastwood, Samir Carruthers and Jamie Mackie (hip) - who famously scored against City in the 3-2 triumph over Queens Park Rangers in May 2012 - are all unavailable.

Robinson has suggested he might rest some players for the match.

Pep Guardiola preview

"I know quite clearly the guys in the first team that are going to play.

"Danilo is coming back, Aleks [Zinchenko] and Brahim [Diaz], some players that played today are going to play because they need rhythm - Nico (Otamendi) played today but hasn't played too much in the last month. We are going to use a lot of players.

“After in the knockout games, we want to improve on our mistakes we had in the past in knock-out games – to be more solid, avoiding mistakes and we’re going to try (to go for) it (in the Carabao Cup).”

James Henry preview

"Tuesday night is an exciting one for everyone, especially the fans and hopefully we play well, which is important to take into the next game, and the fans get to enjoy a brilliant night of football.”
