Team news

City

Pep Guardiola confirmed in his recent press conference that Benjamin Mendy will be in the squad for the second leg. 

However, Vincent Kompany is not fit and is sidelined alongside long-term absentee Claudio Bravo.

Burton Albion

Jamie Allen and Scott Fraser are both doubts for the second leg.

Brewers boss Nigel Clough said: “Jamie has been struggling with his ankle for the last four weeks and Scott picked up a knock to his knee – so both are doubtful.”

Last Time Out

City take a 9-0 aggregate lead into the game from the first-leg at the Etihad Stadium. In that match Gabriel Jesus got four goals with Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez and Kyle Walker also getting on the score sheet.

Pep's preview

"The guys  who have a lot of games in their legs and are going to rest. Players who need to play, who haven't played lately, come back from injury long-term are going to play.

"We start at 9-0. (It's an) Unusual situation. The approach is to improve every single game in what we can do.

 

"Learn how to attack fluidly better. That is the target I want to see tomorrow - not what happened in the first game. Don’t think about result. Think about how to attack and how to improve our methods, doing it better and better.

 

"We don’t set target to win specific title. I repeat constantly the same answer: play, play. Go through. We are in that position. The draw was how it was and now we are closer than ever to be at Wembley and we are going to try to win the title.

 

"We are going to play a few (youth players) - two or three. A few (will be) on the bench -  two or three."
