Manchester City have been drawn against Oxford United in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, as Pep Guardiola’s side look to retain the trophy for the second consecutive season.
Following a comfortable 3-1 victory against Southampton at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City earned themselves a place in the last eight of the competition, with several of the Premier League’s major sides still battling it out for the showpiece event at Wembley in 2020.
At the same stage last year, Manchester City travelled to the King Power Stadium, in a match that went the whole distance with Pep Guardiola’s side coming away from Leicester with a victory via a penalty shoot-out. City will be looking to avoid a similar contest this time, with a heavy fixture list looming for the side.
This tie will of course be a repeat of the third round tie last season, that a certain Phil Foden will remember for being the game that marked his first competitive goal for the club. The current holders cruised to a 3-0 victory that day, with Mahrez and Jesus also adding their names to the scoresheet.
