Manchester City

Solskjaer believes United has proven they can compete with City this season. The two clubs were drawn against each other in the Carabao Cup Semi-finals.


United beat Colchester 3-0 at Old Trafford and progressed through to the next round. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial netted either side of Ryan Jackson’s 56th minute own goal on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, City looked forward to defending its 2018/19 title. The club booked their place in the last four with a comfortable 3-1 win away to Oxford.

Leicester and Aston Villa will battle in next month’s other semi-final.

United will no doubt take encouragement from the fact they stunned City in the Premier League. They came away from the Etihad with all three points earlier this month.

Rashford, who scored the opener in United’s 2-1 win that day said he was “bang-up for another derby” following Wednesday’s evening’s draw.

Similarly, Solskjaer was positive about the prospect of facing City. He said, “You always want to win trophies and games. And we got a nice little draw coming up. So, it’s exciting times coming up.”

“I don’t feel anything is written in the stars. You work hard, take what you get.”

“We have shown that we can play well against teams like City.”

At the post-match conference, Solskjaer added, “Of course we do really respect them. In my opinion, they are the best team in England. They can out-football you so we need to get our game-heads on and be ready for them.”

“But we’ve shown that we can cause them problems. So, I think it will be two fantastic games.”

“We are pleased with the result. But we’ve got to stamp our authority more. I don’t think you beat City twice with the same tactics.”

“We will have to do better. Pep will have them fired up.”

Andreas Pereira reactions

United midfielder, Andreas Pereira, insists his teammates will have no fear when facing Manchester City in the Carabao Semi-finals.

“It is a good game.” Said Pereira. “We are up for it.”

“We know it is difficult. Derbies are always special. We will never fear it.”

“But the last game we won and now we have to look at it from a different perspective.”

“It is a new game, a semi-final. They will come with something new because they know they lost last time. They will do something different.”

“We will prepare like we did last time and hopefully win.”
