Pep Guardiola has assembled a squad that looks like it could compete on all fronts this season if rotated properly, and tonight the lesser ranked of the four competitions Manchester City are in begins for the Blues with an EFL Cup (known as the Carabao Cup this year) third round visit to Tony Pulis’ West Brom.
If City are to win a fifth League Cup, a trophy won twice recently in 2011/12 and 2013/14, then they will have to overcome a potentially troublesome away day, albeit a side City have won their last eleven games against in all competitions and tend to enjoy facing.
Mike Jones is tonight’s referee and here are the starting lineups selected by Guardiola and Pulis:
West Brom XI: Foster, Nyom, McAuley, Evans, Dawson, Gibbs, Krychowiak, Yacob, Morrison, Rodriguez, Robson-Kanu
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Danilo, Stones, Mangala, Delph, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Touré, Sterling, Sané, Gabriel Jesus
