Man United and Manchester City go head-to-head at Old Trafford for a place in the Carabao Cup final
There’s a Manchester derby in the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford tonight, with the winner earning a place in the final at Wembley.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United and Pep Guardiola’s City are playing a one-leg semi-final rather than the usual two-leg affair at this stage of the competition.
City are aiming to win the competition for the fourth year running, although the squad is depleted after a Covid-19 outbreak – that didn’t stop them impressively beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
United, meanwhile, are resurgent and currently sit level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, with a game in hand. They reached three semi-finals last season – victory tonight would give Solskjaer a first appearance in a final as United manager.
City players will also pay tribute to the late Colin Bell by walking out wearing retro number 8 shirts in order of the Blues legend.
We’ll bring you all the best images from tonight’s match below.
