Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sends message to Manchester City after Carabao Cup semi-final draw

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims his team face another ‘big game’ after drawing rivals Manchester City in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup. United booked their place in the final-four after beating Premier League rivals Everton 2-0, while holders Manchester City smashed struggling Arsenal 4-1.

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.

Solskjaer is desperate to win his first trophy as Manchester United manager but knows his team face a test against holders and arch-rivals City.

He said: "A semi-final is sometimes worse than the final because it’s the worst possible time to lose a game and go out of the competition. It is Manchester City again in the semis, so it is going to be another big game.

"Last season we didn’t take a step far enough, we had the three semis and didn’t take that step. This year, let’s see how we fare. I think you can see how much we have grown though. The longer games last you can see us grow, and that is a big difference in us.

"We will face City and keep our feet on the ground and try to improve. We are in a good place at the moment, but we don’t get carried away."
