Manchester City tonight start their quest to win back the Carabao Cup when hosting Chelsea.

A tricky third-round tie awaits Pep Guardiola’s side but the visitors are in a rough patch of form after back-to-back defeats, the manner of which have raised questions over new manager Graham Potter’s impact in the dugout.

Nonetheless, Chelsea are set to rotate their line-up to at least promise a sense of freshness after the stagnant performance against Arsenal.

City have won four of their last five games, most recently a late 2-1 victory over Fulham, and now turn their attentions to a competition they claimed for four years in a row until losing their crown last season.
