Premier League leaders Manchester City – who have won the competition four times – are currently on a impressive run of 11 successive victories, and will set a new club record if they beat Championship leaders Wolves in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
Sergio Agüero, who scored on his return back to the side over the weekend, will now be handed the chance to become Manchester City’s all-time record scorer. Pep Guardiola might unleash the Argentine striker against Wolves, who currently sits abreast Eric Brook on 177 goals.
Agüero recently returned to the free-flowing Manchester City over the weekend after being involved in a car accident, which he suffered an injury to his ribs.
Wolves are currently on a good run of their own, winning four of their last five Championship games. Nuno Esparto Santo’s men are top of the Championship after their 3-2 win over Preston North End on Saturday.
Though, they’ll have to be at the least, their very best when they visit the Eithad tomorrow, regardless of the host of changes Guardiola will make to the starting line up.
Long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy remains out of action with a knee injury, and City skipper Vincent Kompany also looks unlikely to return in time for Tuesday’s fixture.
Wolves Goalkeeper, Will Norris could get a rare start at the Etihad Stadium.
The two teams last met back in 2012 during a Premier League clash away at the Molineux Stadium.
City secured a 2-0 victory with goals courtesy of Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero. Whilst the goal scorers might not be the same come Tuesday evening, I would expect a very similar result.
