Manchester UTD v Manchester City Betting Preview
The Red Devils are currently level on points with league leaders Liverpool. They claimed a narrow 1-0 victory against Wolves last week and defeated 2-1 Aston Villa in a home match over the weekend. As a result, United have now taken 26 points from the last 30 on offer in the top flight. Plus, thay have won four and drawn one of their last five home league games. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men reached this stage of the competition after knocking out Luton Town, Brighton and Everton in the previous rounds.
Man City enter this clash on the back of an impressive 3-1 away victory at Chelsea, probably their season-best performance. The Citizens have won five and lost none of their last seven league games and are on an eleven-game unbeaten streak in all competitions (W8 D3). This will actually be City’s fourth visit to Old Trafford in the last 12 months. The first occurred almost a year ago to the day, when Guardiola’s side won 3-1 in the first leg of last season’s League Cup semi-final, on 7 January 2020. Pep Guardiola's men also made the short trip to Old Trafford last month, as the two sides played out a goalless draw.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Manchester United (4-4-2): Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred, Pogba; Fernandes; Martial, Rashford
Edinson Cavani is suspended as he serves the second match of a three-game ban. Dean Henderson is expected to replace David de Gea in goal while Scott McTominay struggled against Aston Villa - and that means Nemanja Matic could come in. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to keep changes at minimum although Alex Telles, Mason Greenwood, Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata are pushing for a start. Long-term absentee Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo remains sidelined, while Victor Lindelof is a major doubt.
Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Steffen; Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Mendy; Fernandinho, Gundogan; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden; Aguero
Pep Guardiola often makes several changes in the EFL Cup but this time things could be different. Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus return after Covid-19 isolation while the likes of Ferran Torres, Ederson, Tommy Doyle and Eric Garcia are all sidelined. As a result, Zack Steffen is expected to retain his berth between the posts, while Benjamin Mendy should replace Oleksandr Zinchenko at left back. Aymeric Laporte missed Sunday's win over Chelsea with a minor hamstring problem and remains doubtful, as does Nathan Ake. Up front, Sergio Aguero is likely to lead the line, as Raheeem Sterling could be initially rested.
Our Manchester UTD v Manchester City PredictionsBoth teams go into the game in fine domestic form. Pep Guardiola’s side seem to be finding their groove although as many as six players are missing out due to coronavirus. The Citizens have to score in their last three matches against the Red Devils but we expect them to end this negative streak here. A 1-0 victory for Guardiola's men in a hard-fought clash is what we are backing.
