Ticket Information: Manchester City

23 September 2019
We have played 168 games in the competitions, winning 70, drawing 35 and losing 62. This is our 81st game at Deepdale, with a record of won 41 and lost just 17.
 
We have reached the third round on 21 occasions, but only progressed to the fourth round five times, all of these resulting in away ties. The most recent was three seasons ago, when we lost against Newcastle United.
 
This is the first time City have visited PR1 in a competitive game since 2007, when David Nugent scored an early opener in front of the live BBC cameras in the FA Cup, only for the visitors to eventually run out 3-1 winners.
 
This time they arrive as holders of all domestic trophies and on the back of an 8-0 win over Watford at the weekend, so Alex Neil and his side are well aware of the test they face.

Match Reports

Preston North End 0 Manchester City 3

24 September 2019

Champions Manchester City progressed to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup at a sold out Deepdale.

First half goals from Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva provided Pep Guardiola’s side with a 3-0 win, despite great effort from North End.
 
Both sides made changes from their previous weekend’s victories, with Alex Neil making five alterations from the side that started in the 1-0 triumph at St Andrew’s and they started well.
 
Inside 60 seconds they created the first opening, holding possession well before Ryan Ledson crossed from the right and the ball was inches over Josh Harrop at the back post.
 
The Lilywhites managed the opening stages well, so much so that it was in 18 minutes until the Carabao Cup holders had a shot on goal; Sterling with the effort from a tight angle, which was well saved by Connor Ripley.
 
However, the visitors had the lead on the 20-minute mark. As Sterling ran from the half-way line right at the heart of the defence, created space for a shot, but it took a deflection shot off the heels of a PNE defender to lift the ball over Ripley.
 
On 35 minutes it was two. Sterling was again involved, feeding Jesus down the left of the penalty area who collected and fired hard and low under Ripley into the goal.
 
And it was three just before half-time, in rather lucky fashion as skipper Silva’s cross took a deflection off an outstretched PNE leg that took it past Ripley into the right side of the goal.
Just before the break the Lilywhites had a chance to reduce the deficit as Tom Barkhuizen raced away from Eric Garcia after collecting a ball over the top, he got a shot away, but Claudio Bravo saved low down.
North End started the second half brightly and some great play by Brad Potts, Alan Browne and Darnell Fisher created a chance for Harrop, who got in on goal and fired a low shot that beat Bravo, but came back off the right-hand post and was eventually scrambled clear by the Citizens defence.
 
With just under a half an hour left a huge roar inside Deepdale came about as David Nugent made his return to the club 12 years after his departure to Portsmouth, replacing Barkhuizenm who had worked his socks off in attack.
 
Just after the second period’s mid-point Phil Foden rattled the cross bar after a cute through ball from Sterling found the England U21 midfielder in space, but the ball came back out and was cleared by man of the match Ben Davies in what was the last real chance of game.
 
PNE line-up: Ripley, Fisher, Rafferty, Ledson, Storey, Davies, Potts, Browne (c), Barkhuizen (Nugent 63), Johnson (Bayliss, 76), Harrop (Ginnelly, 71). Subs not used: Rudd, Bayliss, Green, Stockley, Huntington.
 
Manchester City line-up: Bravo, Sterling (Mahrez, 73), Gundogan, Jesus, Angelino (Mendy, 60), B Silva, D Silva (c) (Bernabe, 63), Cancelo, Foden, Garcia, Harwood-Bellis. Subs not used: Carson, Rodrigo, Otamendi, Dionkou.
 
Attendance: 22,025 (5,637 Manchester City fans)
 
Referee: Mr L Mason
