Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Preston North End

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's EFL Cup showdown with Preston North End.

Manchester City kick off their EFL Cup defence with a trip to Preston North End on Tuesday evening.

Pep Guardiola's men responded excellently to last weekend's loss to Norwich City with a 3-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek and a resounding 8-0 triumph over Watford on Saturday.

Alex Neil's Preston, meanwhile, have won five of their last six in all competitions and currently sit third in the Championship table.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's match.
