Carabao Cup Team News: Aguero set to start for Man Cty

aguero-mancity

THERE are six Carabao Cup clashes tonight and most if not all teams will rotate their squad.

Arsenal, Leicester, Man United and Man City are hot favourites to qualify but will there be any shocks?

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says he’ll field a strong side and they look decent value at just under evens at home to Middlesbrough.

I’d have been interested in Bristol City against Crystal Palace but the Robins have gone off the boil and were well beaten at home to Leeds at the weekend.

Palace’s only goal and points have come against Chelsea and boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed he will play a weakened team.

Here is some of the key team news I’ve gathered and if you have any more feel free to add.

Arsenal v Norwich

Arsene Wenger will rotate and the bulk of the side will be that which won 1-0 at Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League last week. The likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez won’t feature.

Sergio Aguero could keep his place while Claudio Bravo, Danilo, Eliaquim Mangala, Ilkay Gundogan and Yaya Toure will come into the side. Kids Oleksandr Zinchenko and Tosin Adarabioyo could also be involved.

Bournemouth v Middlesbrough

Eddie Howe insists he wants to reach the last eight even with his side fighting the drop.. The Cherries sit second bottom after two wins from their opening nine league games but were boosted by a weekend win at Stoke.

Striker Josh King is a doubt while Jermain Defoe (hamstring) will again be absent along with defenders Tyrone Mings (back) and Brad Smith (hip).

Two players who will not feature for Middlesbrough are Ryan Shotton and Marvin Johnson who are cup-tied following their earlier involvement for Birmingham and Oxford respectively. Rudy Gestede is also out.

Bristol City v Crystal Palace

Palace boss Roy Hodgson will hand fringe players chances and the likes of Wilfried Zaha, Mamadou Sakho and Luka Milivojevic won’t be risked.

Bristol City striker Milan Djuric is close to a return but Korey Smith is likely to be rested, Jamie Paterson (illness) is a doubt and Nathan Baker (knee) is set to miss out.

 

Leicester v Leeds

Leicester caretaker manager Michael Appleton has hinted at making some changes with a Premier League clash with Everton in mind. Ben Hamer, Ben Chilwell, Aleksandar Dragovic, Daniel Amartey, Leonardo Ulloa and Islam Slimani could all start having done so in the previous round against Liverpool.

Gaetano Berardi will miss out for Leeds’ after being sent off during the league win at Bristol City on Saturday . Leeds head coach Thomas Christiansen hinted Pontus Jansson would start while fellow defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is expected to return to the squad. Winger Stuart Dallas will continue to be absent due to a family bereavement.

Man City v Wolves

Sergio Aguero returned to action against Burnley on Saturday just over three weeks after breaking his rib in a car crash, netting the opener in the 3-0 win to equal City’s all-time goalscoring record.

He could keep his place and the likes of Claudio Bravo, Danilo, Eliaquim Mangala, Ilkay Gundogan and Yaya Toure will come into the side. There could also be involvement for 20-year-olds Oleksandr Zinchenko and Tosin Adarabioyo.

Boss Pep Guardiola says he will make 10 or 11 changes to the side that beat Burnley.

Wolves have rotated in the Carabao Cup this season and keeper Will Norris should start after playing in the previous three rounds. Defender Willy Boly could also be involved after returning from injury.

Swansea v Man United

Roque Mesa will make a rare appearance. Mesa has started only three times since his £11million summer move from Las Palmas but Swansea head coach Paul Clement confirmed the midfielder will line up against United.

Renato Sanches (thigh) is unavailable after joining Wilfried Bony (hamstring) and Kyle Bartley on the casualty list, while keeper Lukasz Fabianski is set to be rested. Wales No.1 Wayne Hennessey could start with defenders James Tomkins and Martin Kelly also coming into contention.

Jose Mourinho will make many changes after the defeat to Huddersfield and a growing injury list. The likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Matteo Darmian, Sergio Romero and Daley Blind could start.
