Humphreys: We're ready for Derby County challenge
Manchester City centre-back Cameron Humphreys insists City know exactly what to expect from their Premier League Cup opponents Derby County.

Having beat Derby in their opening Premier League 2 match of the season following an excellent second half turnaround, Humphreys feels City are prepared for their challenge this time around.

The 18-year-old said: “We played them first game of the season and we know what to expect from them.

“They’re a physical side and we’ve seen plenty of what they do so we’re prepared to go out and try to get the win like we did in August.”
