Man City To Face Man Utd In Carabao Cup Semi-Final

The Manchester United player started at right-back, in a position where he made his debut and he proved he can be versatille and fill in when necessary.

In Saturday's 3pm kick-offs, Aston Villa overcame the dismissal of defender Tyrone Mings just before half-time to beat Crystal Palace 3-0 and move sixth in the table.

Manchester United have since been drawn against bitter rivals, Manchester City, in the semi-finals, with Tottenham and Brentford, of course, facing off in the other semi-final. The Red Devils won the game by 2-0 but here was this untoward incident which was brushed under the carpet.

"We controlled the game and, at the end, the most important thing is [that we are in the] semi-finals".

The loss last season was enough to knock us out of the cup semi-final. So I think that we absolutely deserve to be in the semi-finals, and with some fantastic football also.

And the Toffees' England striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has reportedly emerged as an alternative Solskjaer target to Erling Haaland, who is starring along with United-connected Jadon Sancho for Borussia Dortmund. "When we get Mason, Marcus and Anthony firing on all cylinders as perfectly, I imagine we will be a more substantial danger for groups".

"It is an incredible challenge to stay active and lively when you constantly face 10 men", said Klopp, whose team dropped points from a winning position at Anfield against a side starting the day in the relegation zone for the first time since December 2016.

"Results breed good spirit and good mood and it breeds confidence".

However, they have needed to come from behind each time and Solskjaer knows they can not keep on doing that.

As of kick-off time in this Carabao Cup quarter-final, Everton and Liverpool, their neighbours from a few hundred yards across Stanley Park, were the only top-flight clubs permitted supporters in their grounds, although, given recent events, there is no certainty about how long that privilege will remain in place.

They will be played on the week commencing 4 January 2021.

"It was a big test for us to go to their stadium in the summer and we passed that one with flying colours".

"This time I hope we will use our chance; we will do our best", Matic said to MUTV.
