MANCHESTER UNITED’S tough “reward” for beating Everton 2-0 is a Carabao Cup semi-final at home to neighbours City – with Tottenham drawn against Brentford in a second derby.
Edinson Cavani struck late and majestically to spark United’s Goodison triumph, sub Anthony Martial hitting the clincher.

That followed Spurs winning 3-1 at Stoke earlier on Wednesday night, Gareth Bale, Ben Davies and Harry Kane netting to confirm their superiority.
It leaves Jose Mourinho’s men two wins away from ending their 12-year trophy drought.
And it means another memorable night upcoming for Championship side Brentford, who have never before reached the last four of a major tournament.
But the big clash is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United being given a direct opportunity to show they are beginning to turn around the power balance in Manchester.
They already sit third in the Premier League, three points above Pep Guardiola’s City
