MUN vs MCI Dream11 Prediction: Manchester United vs Manchester City Best Dream11 Team for todays Carabao Cup Semi-Final as we help with Dream11
When the semi-finals for the Carabao Cup 2019-20 were drawn up, there was one clear tie which stood out. It was the derby between Manchester United and Manchester City, a clash which makes for an intoxicating brew with two bitter, feisty, colossal and old rivals facing off against each other.
It’s a fixture which is set to massively up the ante of the marquee tournamnet, a contest which either side will be wanting to cruise through from owing to a slew of reasons. It’s not only down to the fact that a spot in the showpiece summit clash awaits for the winner but also the fact that the winner will put down an opposition they have hated the sight of traditionally.
For Manchester City, a win is even more pivotal today with the side having been stunned 2-1 by Manchester United in the Premier League previously. It was a result which emerged as a massive talking point, one part of a long slew of horrid results for the current champions of the Carabao Cup.
Elsewhere, while Manchester United have managed to fare reasonably well against clubs in the top 6 in an otherwise laggard season, the side were exposed against Arsenal previously. It was a result which brought to light the massive issues shrouding the side this term, one which sees them make an advent into this clash as nothing else but mere pushovers.
With Manchester City set to roll out their star performers for today’s upcoming encounter, the side should end up cruising their way to a win. They have started settling into their groove and at their imperious best, the side are improbable to curb.

Dream 11 Picks
MUN vs MCI Dream11 Goal-Keeper
It’s extremely tricky to decide which goal-keeper will be deployed by either side but Sergio Romero looks the likeliest option for Manchester United. He has been stuck with in the entire tournamnet by the side and the saves he’s set to rope in his way today see us opt for him for the encounter.
MUN vs MCI Dream11 Defenders
The one least likely thing bound to emerge from today’s forthcoming encounter is either side keeping a cleansheet. Manchester United have blatantly lacked any kind of cohesion this season in their backline while Manchester City have been equally languid, a predicament which has seen them wane so horridly.
It sees us not only limit ourselves to the mere three picks over here but go in for the cheapest defenders as well in a bid to open up funds to invest in elsewhere. We begin with our partnership from Manchester City with both Nicholas Otamendi and Oleksandr Zinchenko being brought in by us owing to their ability to torch their way up the park as well.
Elsewhere, it’s just the one pick for us from Manchester United with their fullback, Brandon Williams being bought in by us.
MUN vs MCI Dream11 Midfielders
We had to begin this slot of our side with Kevin De Bruyne from Manchester. He’s once again reaffirmed his place as his side’s talisman, a player who has provided massive impetuous to his side’s soirees given his enterprising passes and crosses.
He’s going to be accompanied by Riyad Mahrez, someone who has come up with goals at the right times for his side this term along with CDM Rodrigo Hernandez. He’s bound to herald his way a plethora of tackles and blocks on the day and along with his ability to involve himself in his side’s attacking plays as well, he becomes sublime value at 8 credits.
Elsewhere, the singular pick for us from Manchester United with us brining in Daniel James from the side for this one.
MUN vs MCI Dream11 Strikers
Although Sergio Aguero might not play in this one, his touch ever since recovering from injury makes him a must have pick for the day. He scored for the side in the FA Cup and is bound to add to his tally of 10 goals when he faces off against a wavering Manchester United side.
City’s top scoring with the 11 goals, Raheem Sterling will be coming in as well into our setup while from Manchester United we are getting in 10 goal man, Marcus Rashford to wrap up our side for the encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin De Bruyne will be captaining our side for the day while Aguero is our vice-captain.
Happy team picking!
