MUN vs MCI Dream11 Prediction | Manchester United vs Manchester City
It’s match-day in the EFL Cup, as Manchester United are all set to host Manchester City in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford. Manchester derbies are always entertaining, and this one has the perfect recipe to make it a high-intensity game. Last time in the derby, United painted the town red in the Premier League as the Red Devils claimed a stunning 2-1 fixture. City would be coming to Old Trafford with revenge in mind to face a near depleted United squad.
The Red Devils began their EFL Cup with a 5-3 win on penalties over Rochdale in the 3rd round. United then proceeded to knock out Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in a 2-1 victory where Marcus Rashford scored a brace. United cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win against Colchester in the quarter-finals to set up a meeting with their neighbours in a 2-legged semi-final.
Ole Gunnar’s major concern areas are in the midfield, where star player Scott McTominay has been ruled out for some time along with Paul Pogba who has also been out and injured for a majority of the season. How Ole approaches the big game will be an exciting thing to watch as he will feel that winning the EFL cup will be close to making things better in the long run.
City are last season’s EFL Cup winners. The Blues will be quite eager to get their hands on the trophy yet again and will have to pass the test that United will put in front of them in the 2 legs. Given how vastly different the two clubs have been over the last few years, City would be coming to Old Trafford with nothing but a plan to win the game.
Pep will field a worthy team and will look to try and dominate the game with passing and shooting. City secured their third-round victory against Preston, winning 3-0 then proceeded to knock out Southampton 3-1 in the fourth round. In the quarters they defeated Oxford United, 3-1. The only tough opponents so far for City will be United, who have had their fair share of facing difficult opponents in the cup.

Dream11 Tips and Tricks for Today’s Premier League Match: Manchester United vs Manchester City
Goalkeeper: Argentine stopper, Sergio Romero has been terrific for United whenever he has gotten the opportunity. Over the weekend he started against Wolves and kept a clean sheet. He is likely to begin once again and will be busy making some excellent saves on the night.
Defenders: Brandon Williams, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fernandinho, John Stones
United youngster Brandon Williams has been the find of the season after impressing in the left-back role. He, along with Wan-Bissaka on the other end, is quite a threat going forward, and they will use their talents to make a mark in the game whenever required.
Fernandinho and John Stones are two solid centre back options for City and should be on your Dream11 team as they will be busy on the evening facing a pacey United attack.
Midfielders: Daniel James, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez
Daniel James is one of the swiftest players in the country and causes some serious trouble to the defenders going forward. His abilities as a winger have earned him a place in our Dream11 side.
It’s no surprise that Kevin De Bruyne features in our list. The Belgian midfielder is amongst the best players in the league and his abilities in the midfield be it creating chances or breaking downplay are un-matchable. Riyad Mahrez is one talented player in the City squad. He is fast from the wings and makes an impression whenever he is on the field, which is why he completes a 3 man midfield.
Forward: Raheem Sterling, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford.
The front three of our Dream11 team comprises of 3 Englishmen who are extremely talented. Raheem is one such player that rival fans wish their club had. Mason and Marcus are the best examples of homegrown academy talent. The 3 players are our final picks for the dream11 side due to their immense talent and the potential that they carry.
My Dream11 Team
Sergio Romero (GK), Aaron Wan-Bissaka, John Stones, Fernandinho, Brandon Williams, Daniel James, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford.
