Manchester City have included 17-year-old Spanish wonderkid Adrián Bernabé in their travelling party to face Oxford United in tonight’s Carabao Cup third round game.

He is one of numerous youngsters included in the squad, with Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz, Aro Muric and Daniel Grimshaw also on the train south.

Experienced names such as Ederson, Vincent Kompany, John Stones, Aymeric Laporte, Nicolas Otamendi, Kyle Walker, Ilkay Gundogan, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sané and Riyad Mahrez were also pictured on the platform, as well as the returning Danilo, who could get his first minutes of the season tonight after recovering from an injury.

Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva and Fabian Delph were among those not pictured in press shots.
