Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Manchester City will be looking to defend their two-goal lead in the Carabao Cup tie against their bitter rivals Manchester United when the two teams take on each other at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. The Citizens head into the match following a 4-0 FA Cup win over ten-man Fulham where Pep Guardiola rested key attacker Sergio Aguero. Both Aguero and De Bruyne return to the starting XI, meaning that the hosts should look sharp in front of goal in the return leg.
The Red Devils rolled over Tranmere 6-0 in the FA Cup at the weekend, but we do not believe that they are capable of making life difficult for Man City in the League Cup semis, second leg as Marcus Rashford remains in the recovery room. Man Utd defeated Man City at Etihad Stadium earlier this term, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
