Preston North End vs Manchester City Match Preview

Manchester City’s 8-0 demolition of Watford must have sent shivers down Preston’s spines, but we do not think it will be anywhere near as one-sided in this Carabao Cup third-round tie.

Holders of all three major English trophies, City have given the perfect response to their shock defeat at Norwich by putting 11 goals without reply past their two subsequent opponents – including a ‘straight eight’ against Watford and four in the opening 15 minutes!

City manager Pep Guardiola is unlikely to take too many chances with his team selection here, despite the relatively low priority of this competition, and based on last season’s evidence he may only blood a couple of youngsters while giving starts to the likes of Claudio Bravo, Joao Cancelo, Angelino and Eric Garcia.

It is not a match the champions can take lightly because Preston have a perfect record at Deepdale this term in the Championship, with their 10-2 goals ratio being the best in the division at home and they sit third in the table just one point off top spot.

Alex Neil’s side won 4-0 away to Bradford in the first round of the Carabao Cup and then needed penalties to get past Hull, with former Manchester United youngster Josh Harrop scoring in both of those ties.

We doubt Preston will be embarrassed here like Watford were on Saturday and they could make City work reasonably hard to reach the fourth round.
