Championship side and current Carling Cup holders, Birmingham City travel to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday to face last seasons FA Cup winners, Manchester City.
Roberto Mancini is expected to make at least half a dozen changes to the side that started against Fulham on Sunday with Owen Hargreaves almost certain to make his City debut.
Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli, Kolo Toure and Adam Johnson could all start as Roberto Mancini looks to give full matches to a number of players, including Stefan Savic and Costel Pantilimon who are set to make their full debuts.
Nigel de Jong (foot) is still out but James Milner, who missed last week's draw with Fulham after a clash of heads, could return.
Kolo Touré is expected to return to his central defensive duties following his six month suspension.
Birmingham is expected to rest key players given the fixture congestion caused by their participation in the Europa League.
Striker Adam Rooney is expected to replace Marlon King in attack.
Birmingham signed former Inverness Caledonian Thistle striker Adam Rooney on a two-year-deal in June 2011.
In the 2010/11 season he netted 21 goals in 42 games for the Scottish side in the top flight. In total Rooney scored 44 goals in 103 appearances for Inverness.
So far this season the 23-year-old Republic of Ireland born striker has scored twice in four Championship appearances.
The clubs have met twice before in the League Cup, with each side bizarrely enjoying one emphatic win apiece.

Last Sunday's Fulham prediction was way off the mark therefore I'll sit on the fence for this one just in case I embarrass myself again. Oh sod it, City to win by two clear goals.
