Newcastle United will play Manchester City in the Carabao Cup later this month, and Pep Guardiola has already hinted at his team’s lineup.

Newcastle hosts Manchester City in the Carabao Cup third round on September 27 (8 p.m. kick-off). Despite the fact that both teams have Champions League and Premier League matches before the encounter, Guardiola has already hinted that he may be compelled to use some young players.

City are now without Kevin De Bruyne, John Stones, and Mateo Kovacic through injury, while Jack Grealish is questionable with a thigh injury.
“The problem when you have a lot of injuries is maybe not today, but over three, four, five games,” Guardiola explained. “We have to go away to Newcastle in the Carabao Cup, and I’m sorry, but we’ll have to play with some second-team players because we can’t take the risks.”

“Kevin is still out, John is still out, and Kova is still out.” I’m not sure, Jack, I’m not sure. When you have the entire squad, you travel to Newcastle with a good team, but now we simply have to rest, recover properly, practice, and attempt to arrive in the best condition possible on game day.

“We cannot squander energy.” I was on vacation, but these men were traveling back from Bolivia and Brazil after playing 90 minutes for their national teams.”It’s exhausting for them, as well as for all of us. Consider [Edson] Alvarez of West Ham, who arrived from South America with jet lag and played against us. We do not treat our players well.”
