Looking at the group your only problem or tricky games should be against Real. Other than that it looks like a walkthrough and I begrudgingly have to admit so does the league, but thats just down to your terrific transfers. Good Luck....though I doubt you'll need it.

Full Time Result: Man City 3-1 Tottenham

A very good result against a very good side in Spurs, a fantastic performance from the whole team and a super sub performance from Guiseppe Rossi to score 2 goals and grab the must needed win against them.
@Micah here is the stats for Devante Cole "dubbed the next Michael Owen"

League Cup 4th Round

L1 Exeter V Chelsea PRM
PRM Arsenal V Bolton CH
PRM Stoke V Newcastle PRM
PRM Wigan v Leeds CH
CH Barsnley V Birmingham CH
PRM Man City V Norwich CH
PRM Portsmouth V Bristol City PRM
PRM Man Utd V Liverpool PRM

As you can see there is a tasty tie in the Man Utd V Liverpool and Stoke V Newcastle, and some Championship sides facing off against each other, Exeter are the lowest league side in the competition. I'm glad I escaped the tough teams such as Chelsea, Arsenal,Liverpool and fierce rivals United!

Predictions for above ties;
Man City
