City start their defence of the Capital One Cup against Sheffield Wednesday on wednesday evening at the the Etihad. Wednesday have the second best defensive record in the Championship and have only conceded four goals in eight games. City's League Cup record under Pellegrini is very impressive,conceding just two goals in six games in last seasons tournament.
City captain Vincent Kompany believes Lampard's equaliser against Chelsea could kick start City's season. Lampard's scored against his former club and prevented them from getting three points for the first time this season.
Nine games, including the League Cup game, in to the season and just three goals scored. A good trivia question would be who has scored those goals.
