Preview

Man City are chasing what would be an historic fifth consecutive Carabao Cup conquest.

City head into the encounter having lost just one of last twelve games in all competitions and have triumphed in three of last five, winning last three in a row.

Since their triumph at Old Trafford in Round Three, West Ham have won six of their last seven - most recently Sunday’s 1-0 home victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Should be an interesting affair as City look set to rotate heavily from the weekend’s match.

Team News

Man City will have just Ferran Torres out with injury. Raheem Sterling will be doubtful with a knock, Ben Mendy remains suspended.

West Ham meanwhile, will see Vladimir Coufal and Alex Kral out.

Prediction

Manchester City 2-1 West Ham
