Match Preview

Unibet make Manchester City slight favourites at 7/5 while an Arsenal victory is priced at 7/4 and a draw offered at 23/10.

Arsene Wenger has always used this competition to blood in the youngsters in his squad. After coming so close to winning the Carling Cup last season when they lost out to Birmingham in the final, Wenger hasn’t changed his policy and has gone with youth so far in the Gunners’ matches against Shrewsbury Town and Bolton.

Roberto Mancini has also been making changes to his side for Carling Cup games and he uses the very strong City squad to his advantage. There is so much quality in their ranks that the starting eleven on Tuesday could contain the likes of Edin Dzeko and Adam Johnson.
