Preview

City face Wycombe having gone unbeaten in last five games in all competitions.

City have won three games and drawn one at the Etihad, scoring 16 goals in the process.

The Wanderers currently sit fifth in League One with 14 points from their seven matches so far. After an opening day defeat to Sunderland, they are unbeaten in eight games.

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

Team News

Man City will have several players out or doubtful. Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Ilkay Gundogan, Rodrigo, Oleks Zinchenko and Kevin De Bruyne are unlikely to play. Zach Steffen is a 50/50 call and Ben Mendy remains suspended.

Wycombe meanwhile, no injuries of concern but should rotate the squad a bit.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-1 Wycombe
