League Cup champions Manchester City begin the defence of their trophy at League One side Oxford United.

After a disappointing result in the Champions League last week, the Citizens blew Cardiff City away on Saturday with a 5-0 hammering. Oxford, however, lost at home to Walsall.

So Manchester City will be confident of securing a place in the fourth round, even with Pep Guardiola expected to make several changes to his side.
