Oxford vs Man City - Oxford top scorer James Henry doubtful for City Carabao Cup clash

Oxford boss Karl Robinson has a host of injury problems ahead of the Carabao Cup quarter-final with Manchester City.

U’s top scorer James Henry is a major doubt after missing Saturday’s Sky Bet League One defeat at MK Dons because of a thigh issue.

Midfielders Anthony Forde (ribs), Jamie Hanson (hamstring), and George Thorne (shoulder) and on-loan Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn (foot) remain out, along with goalkeeper Simon Eastwood (knee).

Cameron Brannagan and Shandon Baptiste should be available having returned from injuries at the weekend.

City boss Pep Guardiola must decide how strong a side to name as he continues to contend with a number of absentees.

The two-time defending champions will again be without defender John Stones (hamstring), striker Sergio Aguero (thigh) and playmaker David Silva (knock), although the latter two could be available for the weekend.

Youngsters like Tommy Doyle, Adrian Bernabe – who both played in the previous round – Ian Carlo Poveda-Ocampo and Taylor Harwood-Bellis will hope to feature.

Man City provisional squad: Ederson, Bravo, Walker, Cancelo, Otamendi,
Fernandinho, Garcia, Mendy, Angelino, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Rodri, , B
Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling, Mahrez, Foden, Jesus, Doyle, Bernabe, Poveda-Ocampo, Harwood-Bellis.
