Prediction – City on for hat-trick
City are overwhelming favourites to win the EFL Cup for the third successive season and the fifth time in seven seasons.
The last 15 groups to win away from residence within the first leg of a League Cup semi-final have all reached the ultimate, the final side to fail to do so being Spurs against Arsenal in the 1986-87 season.
City to undergo holds little worth at 1/100, but City to win in 90 minutes and both groups to score is extra tempting at 7/4. Both sides have scored in 5 of City’s final seven matches in all competitions, and 5 of the last six Manchester derbies.
Goalscorer prediction – Aguero appears unstoppable
Sergio Aguero has scored eight occasions in his final 5 appearances, has 9 goals in 14 in all competitions against the Red Devils and is 4/5 to score at any time.
Gabriel Jesus made probably the most of being chosen ahead of Aguero in opposition to Fulham on the weekend, scoring twice in three minutes to take his tally to sixteen for the season.
Guardiola is unlikely to begin out each strikers however with United’s unreliable defence still wanting shaky, we will see Jesus additionally scoring at any time at 21/20.
United are nonetheless a risk going forward regardless of lacking their talisman Marcus Rashford by way of injury.
In his continued absence Anthony Martial will lead the road and he has 5 goals in 12 EFL Cup appearances for United. He is 18/5 to add to that tally on Wednesday.
