Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to win a title with the club after failing to make it to any final since taking over the reins of the team.
United lost three semifinals last season under the Norwegian with one being against City in the EFL Cup and their clash against Pep Guardiola's side on Wednesday night gives him another opportunity to payback that loss that saw City go on to win the competition.
Speaking ahead of the tie, Solskjaer said of United’s trophy ambitions: “You play football to win and win trophies, even though when you win one you move onto the next.
“It gives you the hunger to get more. We have developed a lot in the last 12 months from the last semi in EFL Cup. We are confident. We are in good form. There are no excuses.”
In the game, both teams will be allowed to use five substitutions and with United being one of the most in-form teams in England, they would fancy their chances.
The team is currently placed second in the league with 33 points just as leaders Liverpool who has played a game more.
