Man City pair Leigh, Lopes set for Capital One Cup action

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is set to field two top kids in tonight's Capital One Cup tie with Wigan Athletic.

17-year-old Portuguese attacking midfielder Marcos Lopes and 18-year-old English left-back Gregory Leigh will both take their place in Manuel Pellegrini’s first team squad.

It is likely that the duo will start from the bench but City are keen to give the two cameo appearances at the very least and starting places have not been ruled out.

EDS manager Patrick Vieira revealed to the Daily Mail: "Two of the young boys will get involved with the first-team, Rony Lopes and Greg Leigh. It is fantastic for them."
