The games are coming thick and fast, and Manchester United are back in action against cross-town rivals City at Old Trafford on Tuesday. It’s the first leg of their Carabao Cup semifinal tie, with Leicester City going head-to-head with Aston Villa for the other berth in the final. With both United and City’s primary concerns elsewhere, anything could happen in this one.
United will still be without a string of regulars, including Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay. Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are doubtful after missing the weekend’s draw with Wolves through illness, while Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are both injury doubts. City have a full-strength team with the exception of the injured Leroy Sané and the unfit Aymeric Laporte.
Carabao Cup schedule
It’s a bog-standard 20:00 local kickoff time, which translates to 15:00 on the east coast of the States and 12:00 on the west.
