City Elite Development Squad return to action on Friday night after the international break.
Norwich City are the visitors as Patrick Vieira’s side go in search of their first victory of the Barclays u21 Premier League season.
City rallied to rescue a 1-1 draw last time out against West Ham at the A J Bell Stadium and next they welcome the Canaries to Hyde’s Ewen Fields.
That followed the 1-1 draw against Sunderland at the end of August and the narrow opening day defeat to Chelsea.
Chelsea and Manchester United have both beaten Norwich so far this season, leaving Friday night’s opponents rooted to the foot of this fledgling league table.
City are likely to be boosted by the return of Shay Facey to the centre of defence after he served his one-match suspension last time out.
Kick-off is at 7pm at Hyde’s Ewen Fields (SK14 5PL), entry is free for Seasoncard holders and £3 adults, £1 concessions.
There is only one way to watch City’s Capital One Cup third round clash with Sheffield Wednesday live.
The first step towards defending our trophy won at Wembley in March will not be shown live on TV anywhere in the UK, so make sure you’re at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday 24 September.
Prices start at £5 for under-16s and £15 for adults, so no excuses: get your ticket now and make sure you don’t miss out!
