Carabao Cup: Owen Predicts Manchester United Vs Manchester City Derby

Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen has backed Manchester United to beat Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semifinal today.

The Manchester Derby will determine who will face Tottenham Hotspurs in the final after the London side beat Brentford 2-0 on Tuesday.

Speaking ahead of the 8:45pm kick off time, Owen told BetVictor: “Both Manchester sides are in excellent form ahead of this semi-final clash. Manchester City have been steadily improving week-on-week, and their progress continued at the weekend, playing some of their best stuff when defeating Chelsea 3-1.

“Having climbed to 2nd position in the Premier League, Manchester United come into this undefeated in their last 7 matches. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aiming for silverware, however, for that to happen, his side must end City’s recent dominance in this competition.

“Interestingly, City have failed to score in their last 4 visits to Old Trafford. United should line up with the same side that defeated Aston Villa at the weekend with Dean Henderson the only exception in goal.

“With both sides in such good form, it’s no doubt going to be a tight match. That said, Manchester United have tremendous momentum. I think they’ll have just enough against a City side who may be slightly understrength on the night. Man United 2, Man City 1.”
