Unable to put any shots on target in the first half, Manchester City got back on track in the second half. Man City rivals Manchester United lose 2-0 in the EFL Cup semi-final.
Three-time champions Man City won 2-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday. Defender John Stones and midfielder Fernandinho scored two goals in the second half.
Pep Guardiola’s opponent in the final on April 25 is Tottenham Hotspur. Jose Mourinho’s side beat second division side Brentford 2-0 the previous day.
United got the first good chance in the semi-final. In the ninth minute, Bruno Fernandez’s long-range corner kick was saved by Jack Steven in exchange for a corner.
Four minutes later, Manchester City was frustrated when Kevin de Bruyne’s shot from outside the box was blocked.
Stones on Dias 💬 It’s a pleasure to play with him, how well he’s done coming into the club straight away playing so many games, playing so well.
All credit to him, I’ll take a bit for him too! Hopefully we can keep moving forward.
