Capital One Cup draw. Manchester City and Manchester United could meet in the final

Capital One Cup draw. Manchester City and Manchester United could meet in the final

Manchester United and Manchester City could meet at Wembley in the Capital One Cup final should they make it past Sunderland and West Ham in the semis.

David Moyes tuned his players for a vigorous performance at Britannia Stadium amid extremely difficult weather conditions that saw Mark Clattenburg suspend the game for a while in the first half. Ashley Young was given a chance to impress as Wayne Rooney was absent through groin injury and hit the back of the net with a powerful strike on 62 minutes. Patrice Evra killed the game off twelve minutes from time with spectacular curling effort. United will now face Sunderland who had beaten Chelsea on Tuesday.

Tottenham Hotspur suffered another home defeat from West Ham United in the season and Tim Sherwood did mot manage to impress despite fielding the two jettisoned strikers, Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor. The latter did score in the middle of the second half but Sam Allardyce’s team responded with two late goals from Matt Jarvis and Modibo Maiga. The Hammers are now set for a tough clash with Manchester City.

The two-legged semi-finals will be played in the second and the fourth weeks of the new year.
