Match preview

When the draw was conducted way back on 24 August, one tie immediately leapt of the page, that being this one at the Etihad.

Manchester City lifted four successive League Cups, before their reign was finally ended in round four last season, ousted by West Ham on penalties.

The Citizens haven’t fallen at this stage since 2012, winning the competition six times in the intervening decade.

Right now, Pep Guardiola’s team are two points below Premier League leaders Arsenal, despite winning six of their last seven outings.

On Saturday, they needed a 95th minute Erling Braut Håland penalty to see off Fulham, after João Cancelo was sent off.

Having not lost a League Cup tie at home since October 2014, Man City have to be favourites to prevail here.

Graham Potter’s first return to Brighton didn’t go to plan, hammered 4-1, before, on Sunday, his team were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal.

This has seen the Blues slip down to seventh, amassing just two points from their last four outings.

A Manchester City victory seems very likely in this one at the Etihad.
