Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping for an upset as his team takes on neighbours Manchester City in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final at the Etihad Stadium.

City hold the advantage over United going into Wednesday’s tie.

Pep Guardiola’s side currently have a 3-1 lead from the first leg played three weeks ago at Old Trafford.

Goals from Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez and an Andreas Pereira own goal secured victory for the Citizens in the first leg.

It was Marcus Rashford’s second-half that gave United a lifeline from the first leg but the English forward will not be available tonight, as he is out, injured

City are looking to become only the third team to reach three League Cup finals in a row and have scored exactly three goals in all of their matches in the competition so far this season.
