- League Cup quarter-final updates from the 7.45pm GMT match
- De Bruyne denies exhaustion caused six-week absence

Well wasn’t that a day to remember? But life goes on in Manchester, and as managerless United contemplate their next move, rivals City tonight take on Leicester City at the King Power in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.
The hosts hope to make it to the semis for the first time since 1999-2000. But that could prove a big ask. They’ve lost all four of their previous League Cup ties with Manchester City, who beat them at this stage both last season and in 2013-14. They’ll most likely not face a weakened team, either, with Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne expected to get some sort of run-out on their journeys back from injury. Leicester’s old boy Riyad Mahrez could also play, too.
