Carabao Cup semifinal: City thrash Man U

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Manchester City took a huge step towards winning a third consecutive Carabao Cup with a 3-1 win over rivals Manchester United in the first leg of their semi-final meeting at Old Trafford. First-half goals from Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez, along with an Andreas Pereira own goal, set City on their way to gaining revenge for last month’s derby defeat in the League. Though Marcus Rashford’s late strike at least keeps the tie alive, it would be a huge surprise if Pep Guardiola’s men failed to reach their fourth final in five years from here. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was without the injured Harry Maguire, meaning a rare start for Phil Jones in defence, but the inclusion of David De Gea in a starting line-up in this competition for the first time since the 2017 final was evidence of the Norwegian sticking to his promise to field a strong side. Guardiola did likewise, making eight changes after rotating for the FA Cup win over Port Vale, though interestingly both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus were left on the bench as the visitors began without a recognised centre forward. That proved no issue, as Bernardo opened the scoring on 17 minutes with a rocket arrowed into the top corner from the edge of the box: there were question marks over United’s passive approach to letting him cut in onto his favoured left-foot, but none about the goalkeeper, who wouldn’t have got to it with a week’s warning. A shell-shocked United were soon two down as Bernardo turned provider, carving United apart with a wonderful pass that sent Mahrez clean through on goal and the Algerian made no mistake, rounding De Gea to score. Before the half was out, United were exposed again on the counter-attack as, despite the best efforts of the covering Brandon Williams, the ball found its way to Kevin De Bruyne, who sent Jones into next week before seeing his shot cannon back off De Gea and in off the unfortunate Pereira. City might have had more before the break had Raheem Sterling not seemed intent on keeping up his bizarre record of never having scored against United, first skewing wide at full stretch after one of those magical, low De Bruyne crosses, and then miskicking completely when presented with an easier chance by Mahrez. Solskjaer’s half-time response was to send on Nemanja Matic in place of the ineffective Jesse Lingard, and the Serbian’s presence added some much-needed solidity to the United midfield. The hosts improved without truly threatening Claudio Bravo’s goal, right up until the moment when Rashford struck on 70 minutes, slotting home from Mason Greenwood’s perfectly weighted pass to give the his side a lifeline to take to the Etihad.Tags: Bernado SilvaCarabao CupMarcus RashfordPep GuardiolaRiyad Mahrezlast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Southampton midfielder Ward-Prowse: Sloppy defending cost Man City defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse admits they paid for “sloppy” defending in defeat to Manchester City.Saints were behind inside ten minutes when David Silva converted namesake Bernardo’s cutback, by which time the goalscorer had already been denied by a fine save from Alex McCarthy.Saints responded well and deservedly drew level through Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, but succumbed to two goals in the dying minutes of the first half that ultimately decided the game, before skipper Højbjerg was dismissed late on.“It’s a disappointing result, obviously. I think we started the game poorly and didn’t quite get into the flow of the game,” Ward-Prowse said.“I think we showed glimpses in the first half of what we’ve been working on as a team, pressing high, and the goal came from that.“I felt we were right in it, but two unlucky, sloppy goals at the end of the first half killed the game.“When you give a team like that those sorts of opportunities and chances, they’re going to run away with it, which they did.” last_img read more
