Manchester United would love nothing more than to snap Manchester City's run of Carabao Cup dominance. City have won 3 straight cups and another this year would equal the record streak of 4 set by the great Liverpool team of 1981–84.

United progressed to the semi-finals by beating Luton Town, Brighton & Hove Albion and Everton. City, meanwhile, had a slightly tougher draw and accounted for Bournemouth, Burnley and Arsenal. United have the benefit of five days' preparation compared to City's three and have been tipped to field a full-strength side for the big derby.

Who will win Manchester United vs Manchester City?

Bookmakers and recent cup history favour City and they do boast the bigger names on paper. But we are leaning towards a United upset here. It probably shouldn't be seen as an upset given United are second in the Premier League.

United are equal on points with leaders Liverpool, who slumped to a shock loss to Southampton this week. City are sitting fifth, four points back from United but with a game in hand.
