Loads of Man Utd fans react as Pogba and Henderson start in semi-final vs Man City

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has included Paul Pogba and Dean Henderson in his Manchester United lineup to face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semi-finals. 

United can reach their first final under Solskjaer’s tutelage with victory over their cross-city rivals at Old Trafford this evening.

Pep Guardiola’s men are specialists in the competition having claimed the silverware on the last three occasions and will be high in confidence after swatting aside Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Henderson resumes his Carabao Cup starting role and is protected by a back four including Victor Lindelof rather than Eric Bailly.

Bailly has been outstanding in his last four consecutive starts but the fit-again Swedish international has been preferred alongside Harry Maguire this evening.

Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will look to provide the attacking support from full-back.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has named the same midfield and frontline that secured a 2-1 win over Aston Villa in the league on Friday.

Scott McTominay and Fred continue their partnership in the midfield axis and indispensable Bruno Fernandes will play in behind Anthony Martial.

We expect Marcus Rashford to start on the right-flank and Paul Pogba to provide some width in a free role from the left.
