Undefeated in the Carabao Cup since 2017, Manchester City have stamped their authority all over the tournament since the last four years. Winning three successive titles, the club has truly made the tournament its personal toy off late.
Handed out their toughest runs of fixtures in years in the competition, City are showing that they can win in the title when put to the sword as well. Trouncing Arsenal the last time around, the club now takes on Manchester United in the second semi-final this Wednesday.
Having routed Chelsea earlier at the weekend, City make a foray into this encounter with all the wind in its sails.
COVID or no COVID, City are just way too strong an outfit and should go onto win this one with ease.
A bout of COVID cases at City rules out Jesus, Garcia, Walker, Torres, Ederson and Tommy for the tie.

MUN vs MCI Fantasy Prediction
He’s been in charge of the sticks for City in the Carabao Cup and a stellar Premier League debut sees Zach Steffen be our goal-keeper for this outing.
They might have conceded late on against Chelsea but that doesn’t faze us for opting for a duo from City. In Joao Cancelo and Ruben Dias, the club has two worldclass names, players who have completely overhauled the team’s defensive setup.
Manchester United on the other hand will see us opt for Eric Bailey and Aaron Wan-Bissaka after his assist the last time around.
Scoring and assisting the one goal apiece against Chelsea sees us make Kevin de Bruyne the first pick from City. He’s joined by Phil Foden who had a goal and assist as well in the affair.
Ilkay Gundogan who scored as well on the day and Riyadh Mahrez will complete the set of picks from the club. Manchester United on the other hand will see top scorer Bruno Fernandes find company in Scott McTominay.
He scored earlier at the weekend to see us opt for Marcus Rashford in this slot.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin’s three goals and eight assists in the league make him our captain while Bruno is the vice-captain.
Steffen, Aaron, Eric, Dias, Cancelo, Kevin, Scott, Bruno, Foden, Mahrez, Ilkay, Rashford.
