STREAM HERE >>> Manchester City vs Wycombe Wanderers free stream online EFL Cup Full HD
In Pep Guardiola’s five-year tenure at the Etihad Stadium only one team has beaten him in the EFL Cup and one of Manchester United’s two victories was swiftly overturned in the second leg of the 2020 semifinals. City are a dynasty in this competition, chasing their fifth straight triumph.
Wycombe have only gone beyond the third round once in their history, reaching the semis 14 years ago. Gareth Ainsworth’s side are on a good run of form in League One but eliminating the holders would make for the greatest of shocks.
Wigan Athletic vs. Sunderland: It may not have the most glamorous of teams but if you are looking to get away from the rigmarole of the Premier League there could be worse teams to watch than the top two in League One battling it out.
Fallen giants Sunderland have rediscovered their form under Lee Johnson whilst Wigan have dropped just two points since losing to the Black Cats on the opening day.
Man City will enter Tuesday’s contest off the back of a frustrating goalless draw at home to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and the stalemate certainly came as a surprise considering the team’s form in their four matches leading up to the clash with Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s side.
Indeed, the Citizens had beaten Norwich City, Arsenal and Leicester City in their previous three Premier League games before putting six past RB Leipzig in their Champions League opener.
Saturday’s 0-0 with Southampton was certainly a setback, and Guardiola’s side are fifth in the table, three points behind leaders Chelsea ahead of next weekend’s clash between the two teams at Stamford Bridge.

As mentioned, Man City have won the League Cup on eight previous occasions – the same as Liverpool – and they will be bidding to become the most successful team in the competition this term.
The Citizens have dominated the League Cup in recent years, lifting each off the last four trophies, and they beat Tottenham Hotspur in last season’s final courtesy of a late goal from Aymeric Laporte; it is down the list in terms of priorities this term, but Guardiola’s side have certainly enjoyed themselves in this competition.
