Manchester City will look to win the Carabao Cup for the fourth year in a row after beating Manchester United to reach the final.
John Stones poked home early in the second half before Fernandinho secured progression with a shot from just outside the box.
An edgy first half saw City dominate for large periods, with two goals ruled out for offside.
They will face Tottenham Hotspur in the final on Sunday, 25 April.
Manchester City celebrate their victory with great feeling. A huge team huddle, followed by backslaps and hugs all round. They’ll face Tottenham Hotspur in the final, to be played on Sunday 25 April, all going to plan. If they win that, they’ll equal Liverpool’s record of eight League Cup victories, as well as their record of four consecutive wins, set all the way back in the early 1980s.
More history there to be written by Pep Guardiola’s remarkable side, who have rediscovered their form in some style. But let them enjoy tonight for now: another derby win, and a lovely way to say farewell to the great Colin Bell.
