Denis Suarez is expected to see action for Manchester City tonight against Capital One Cup opponents Aston Villa.

City had to fend off determined competition from Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea to secure the signature of the striker.

The former Celta Vigo prospect featured in a League Cup tie against Wolves last season and the 18-year-old can surely expect further tastes of first-team life this time around, as City host Aston Villa on Tuesday evening.
