The U’s have failed to find the target in their last three fixtures.
Forward James Henry is the club’s top scorer in the league with 8 goals, while Tarique Fosu has 7 league goals, and Matt Taylor has 6.
Oxford also have injury absentees: Malachi Napa, Simon Eastwood, Anthony Forde and Liverpool loanee midfielder Ben Woodburn are all out.
Manchester City team news vs Oxford United
Aymeric Laporte (knee) and John Stones (thigh) are injured for Man City.
Sergio Aguero is on the comeback trail from a thigh problem, but it’s unlikely he’ll be risked in the Carabao Cup.
David Silva is also a doubt after he missed last weekend’s win at Arsenal.
Phil Foden played against the Gunners and he’s likely to retain his place against the U’s.
Riyad Mahrez seems certain to start, while Oleksandr Zinchenko should get more minutes after a late cameo appearance at Arsenal.
