Carabao Cup: Manchester United ease past Everton, set to face City in Manchester Derby Semis

With series of missed chances and a couple of good saves, the Carabao Cup quarter-finals game between Manchester United and Everton looked like it was penalty bound until Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial strikes secured a late minute and a much deserving victory to secure a semi-finals spot for Ole Gunnar’s side. 

Cavani’s streamer came in the 88th minutes of the game, breaking the long-overdue deadlock in front of two thousand fans at Goodison Park. 

A few more misses and saves, which had become quite characteristic of the clash, preceded Cavani’s goal before Anthony Martial, who had endured a disappointing start to the season, added a second in stoppage time to seal things off, sending United into yet another semi-final under Ole. 

The Defeat ended Carlo Ancelotti’s team a run of three successive wins heading into the game. 

The victory means Manchester United will square up against Pep’s Manchester City and defend the competition’s champions as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to win his first trophy as United boss.

While Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham will take on Brentford after seeing off Stoke City.
