Instead, Liam Delap will travel with Manchester City's U21 side to Doncaster tonight, to face Rovers in the EFL Trophy alongside several other highly-rated talents, with the squad providing a key indication as to who has been selected for first-team action.
Alongside Liam Delap in playing for the Manchester City U21 squad on Tuesday night is Samuel Edozie, who impressed many during a prolific pre-season in front of the goal for Pep Guardiola's senior squad.

Although fans will be disappointed not to get a glimpse of Liam Delap in first-team action for the first time this season, Tuesday night still presents a huge opportunity to witness some other promising talents in action.
It now appears as though the likes of Luke Mbete, Romeo Lavia, Cole Palmer, and James McAtee will be involved in some capacity for the senior team against Wycombe at the Etihad Stadium - with all players missing from the academy side.
