Man City take the lead at Old Trafford with Bernardo Silva scoring the opening goal in tonight’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men started well with plenty of intent but David de Gea was unable to prevent a screamer from Silva.
It could be argued that the Portuguese playmaker should have been closed down sooner, but the quality of the strike would have required a wonder save from the goalkeeper to prevent.
Sadly he was getting nowhere near it.
The goal was completely against the run of play.

It’s a shame to conceded an early goal, now United fan a massive up-hill climb to get back into the game tonight.
City are likely to dominate possession and increase the amount of tactical fouls they usually commit whenever we get a sniff of the ball…
