How to watch Manchester City vs Manchester United Carabao Cup semi-final live and free

Posted: 29 January 2020 4:22 pm

It's Manchester City vs Manchester United in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final. City won the first leg 3-1 at Old Trafford and are firm favourites to progress to another final.

For years, Manchester City could only look on as United won trophy after trophy under former manager Sir Alex Ferguson. But over the past decade or so, the bragging rights have gradually shifted to the blue half of Manchester.

Manchester City toyed with United in their own home in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, cruising to a 3-0 lead at half-time. Marcus Rashford's second-half strike then gave the Red Devils a glimmer of hope for the return bout.

Liverpool are running away with this season's Premier League title, so both Manchester sides will view the Carabao Cup as a piece of silverware within their grasp. But Pep Guardiola's side are firmly in the driving seat to meet Aston Villa in this year's decider.

Who will win the Manchester City vs Manchester United Carabao Cup semi-final?

The once-mighty Red Devils are still struggling to get anywhere near their former glory under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Recent FA Cup wins over Wolves and Tranmere were intersected by Premier League defeats to Liverpool and Burnley.

Manchester City are also having their own troubles. Winners of the past two EPL titles, they are currently 16 points adrift of Liverpool, having played a game more.

City boss Guardiola is under constant pressure to keep delivering trophies to the cash-rich club and they also won't want to let their guard down against their city rivals.

We just can't see the Red Devils doing enough to chase them down in this second leg.
