City face Wycombe in Carabao Cup Third Round

Manchester City's defence of the Carabao Cup title begins with the visit of Wycombe Wanderers to the Etihad Stadium.

The League One outfit booked their place in the third round thanks to penalty shootout victories over Exeter City and Stevenage.


Our last clash with Gareth Ainsworth's side came during our Second Division promotion campaign, when the visitors ran out 2-1 winners at Maine Road in April 1999.

Wycombe currently sit second in League One, having won three of their opening four matches as they aim for an immediate return to the Championship.

City, along with the six other English sides to qualify for Europe this season, enter the competition at the third round stage as we set our sights on claiming the trophy for a record fifth successive year.

A ninth League Cup triumph would also see Pep Guardiola's men surpass Liverpool as the most successful side in the tournament's history.

Our third round clash is set to take place on the week commencing 20 September, with dates and times to be confirmed in due course.
