City Take Handsome Lead Into Second Leg

United with mountain to climb

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United's display in the 3-1 League Cup semi final first leg defeat to Manchester City left a lot to be desired. 

United were left three nil down after first half goals by Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez at Old Trafford, before Andreas Pereira turned the ball into his own net. 

Marcus Rashford pulled one back with twenty minutes to go to give United a glimmer of hope ahead of the return leg in three weeks time. 

Meanwhile City boss Pep Guardiola reckons that the tie is not over yet.


The second semi final is between Leicester City and Aston Villa this evening. 

Kick off at the King Power Stadium is at 8pm.
