Manchester United take on Manchester City at Old Trafford in the English Carabao Cup semi-final 1st leg on Tuesday night (local time).
Manchester derbies are always eagerly anticipated and competitive and with a place at Wembley for the winners of this tie, there’s plenty at stake here.
United have struggled for consistency this season, but showed that they can compete on an equal basis with City when winning 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League a month ago.
City, who are the current holders of the Carabao Cup have also struggled to match their usual levels of excellence under Pep Guardiola this season and their hopes of a third consecutive Premier League title already look to be all but over.
