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.

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