Manchester United travel to the Etihad on Wednesday to face locals rivals Manchester City in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final. United were thoroughly beaten by City in the first leg, with the 1-3 scoreline barely doing justice to the Blues’ dominance on the day. There is no away goals rule in the League Cup, so United “only” need to beat City by two goals in order to send the tie to penalties.
A place in the final at Wembley against Aston Villa awaits the winner of the fixture, but United will have to attempt another unlikely comeback with an even more short-handed squad. On top of the long-term absences of Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay, and Marcus Rashford, United will possibly be without the services of Nemanja Matić, who reportedly picked up an injury over the weekend.
Carabao Cup schedule
