(Video) Esteemed Kompany’s Carabao Cup match preview

Manchester City gear up to face Newcastle in the Carabao Cup. The competition has been a favourite for the Blues in recent years, however this clash will be a challenge.

City in a delicate position with their lack of squad depth currently. Meanwhile, Rodri got himself a three game ban at the weekend, adding to the shortage.

Although ManCity.com report that Grealish and Kovacic have returned to training, they may not be fit to start.

Newcastle will be playing in front of home fans on the back of thrashing Sheffield United 0-8. They will undoubtedly be up for this, and believe themselves the frontrunners with a weakened City side.

Nevertheless, no one can rule out a win from the treble winners. We remain the only undefeated team of the season thus far – can we keep our good run and progress in the ultimate Carabao Cup?
