Man City defeat Man United in Carabao Cup semis, face Tottenham in final
In a bold performance, Manchester City kept their hopes of winning a fourth consecutive Carabao Cup alive after overcoming Manchester United 2-0 in their semi-final at Old Trafford.
City players John Stones and Fernandinho struck in the second half on Wednesday night to seal their passage to the final, seeing off their rivals and maintaining their quest to equal Liverpool’s record of winning this competition four times in a row – which they managed between 1981-84.
Unfortunately for Manchester United, it lost all three semi-finals they reached last season – including in this competition against City – and it was a curse that struck again. It is becoming a mental block for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his side.
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur will now face either Manchester City in the final.
Recall that Tottenham have qualified for this year’s Carabao Cup final, after defeating Brentforda by 2-0 on Tuesday night.
