Carabao Cup semi-final draw: Manchester United face Man City

Manchester United will take on Manchester City in a blockbuster derby in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup this season.

The other tie sees Tottenham take on Brentford, with the Championship side in the first major semi-final of the club’s history.

That clash is also a derby, but the London clash may not have the same intensity of the Manchester derby between two of the top teams in the Premier League.

The semi-finals will be played in the week commencing 4 January 2021, with the ties played over single-legs instead of the usual two-legged affairs.

The final does not come round until 25 April at Wembley.

Brentford were the first team to book their place in the semi-finals, upsetting Newcastle on Tuesday evening with a 1-0 victory.

Manchester City followed them into the last four with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Arsenal, also on Tuesday night.

Tottenham saw off Championship outfit Stoke City on Wednesday, before Manchester United completed the line-up with two late goals giving them a 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park.
