19th January – 20:00 GMT
Carling Cup Semi Final Leg 1

City

  • Mancini has managed to win his first three games keeping a clean sheet in each of them
  • The defeat to Everton (0-2) showed most of the players are tired following the busy schedule
  • Nedum Onuoha, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Stephen Ireland have recovered from injuries
  • Toure is away at Angola, Roque Santa Cruz and Martin Petrov limped off against Everton,  Vieira is still not fit enough
  • Carlos Tevez will  lead the attack and he will be out for blood to get revenge on his former club

United

  • Sir Alex suggested the starting 11 to play this game  would be far stronger than that which he had originally thought of.
  • United scored  three goals against Burnley,  but their performance was  far from impressive to me
  • Probably we will see someone from Macheda, Wellbeck, Gibson, Park, Tosic,  de Laet and Michael Owen who have all featured extensively in the Carling Cup.
  • Berbatov and Giggs are questionable and probably will miss the game, but Nemanja Vidic could return from injury.
  • United will play a careful game and first make sure not to concede, but I think they will score at least one

MY PREDICTION BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE with possible result 2-1

FINAL SCORE 2-1 !!!
