Danilo hails Manchester City's depth as Guardiola prepares to rotate

 

West Brom are the next side tasked with stopping free-scoring Manchester City as Pep Guardiola's side travel to The Hawthorns in the Carabao Cup.

City are unbeaten in six games this season but have really hit their stride in the last three, scoring 15 goals without reply.

It remains to be seen how strong a side Guardiola opts to field in tonight's third-round tie but his teams in the competition last year were mostly filled with senior men.

Some rotation is likely, with goalkeeper Ederson a strong candidate to be rested.

The game might also provide the opportunity for midfielder Ilkay Gundogan to step up his return from a long-term knee injury or for captain Vincent Kompany to be eased back into action after a calf problem.

Yaya Toure - whose recent omissions have not been clearly explained - and Fabian Delph would hope to be involved for the first time this season.

Two of last season's stars, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling, have started only one and two games respectively this term and might see more action.

Other options include summer signing Danilo, who has sat out the last two games after being involved in the first four.

The Brazilian defender, a £26.5m recruit from Real Madrid, is enjoying the competition for places.

Danilo said: "When you see Man City's squad with lots of quality players, the experience mixed with the youth, that can only give us confidence.

"Hopefully we will be able to fight for all the trophies."
