The derby of Manchester is here tonight! Manchester City hosts Manchester United in the 2nd leg of the semi-finals of the EFL Cup. The game is set to start at 19:45 GMT 0 at Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City with a lead of 3-1
The Citizens won the first leg with convincing play and 3-1 away win. They have already accomplished the hard part of the job. Now they have only 90 minutes to keep their lead and to qualify for the final. Leroy Sane is unavailable for the match while Aymeric Laporte could play a few minutes after his recovery from a knee injury.
What to expect from Solskjaer
The situation in Manchester United is unpleasant, to say the least. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot use Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford for the upcoming match against City. The performance of United has been ups and downs and you cannot predict how they are going to play in the next game. They were badly smashed by Burnley at Old Trafford but after a few days won by 6-0 against Tranmere. Anyway, the team’s inconsistency is something that the Norwegian should worry about.
