Solskjaer says Man United “are confident with form” as they face Man City in Carabao Cup semi-final

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Manchester United are ready to shake off their semi-final jinx.

The Red Devils lost in three last season including a two-legged EFL Cup tie with Manchester City, a 3-1 FA Cup reverse to Chelsea and European heartbreak against Sevilla.

They face their neighbours again at the same stage of the competition on Wednesday night but this time in a one-off game at Old Trafford.

And Solskjaer said: “We’ve improved immensely in a year since that last semi and since we were in the Europa League semi in August.

“We’ve earned the right to go all the way with our performances.

“We are confident with our form, so no excuses.

“We have prepared well, the squad is focused and ready to give it a go.”
