The quarter finals between City and Oxford should be a great match between two clubs on odd standings. City is in the middle of a title race and is immersed in four tournaments. While, Oxford are in a battle to exit League 1 and enter a higher level.

With City ready to play more youth it could be a closely contested match. Last time out City won convincingly.

Team News:

City still have Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane missing as they continue to rehab from their long term injuries.

David Silva, John Stones and Sergio Aguero all missed the trip to Arsenal and are unlikely to be risked.

Prediction

A probable rotated side could favor Oxford, but I see City calmly winning this one.

Manchester City 3-1 Oxford United
