What is the team news?You can get 9/2 for Rashford to score two or more. With half the season left, the Hertfordshire club have every chance.
"Sometimes the pressure and the high expectations can get to players when they need to take that step to reach a final".
"The club has been good, the players have been following as well as they can". New signing Amad Diallo has not yet trained with the first team and therefore will not be making his debut against Watford.
Bruno Fernandes is expected to be given a well-earned breather so Donny van de Beek is set for be handed a rare start and the Dutchman will be eager to impress after a hard start to life at Old Trafford. His lack of first-team football this season has seen clubs interested in taking him on a six-month loan for the rest of the campaign.
On top of that, it was a fourth consecutive semi-final defeat for United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer across all competitions, having fallen to City in the same competition in 2019-20 as well as losing to Chelsea and Sevilla in the FA Cup and Europa League respectively. They are talented but not able to show it when it truly matters.
In fact, the Argentina internationals appear to have played their last games for United ahead of their contracts expiring at the end of the season.
The last manager to win the League Cup before the City-Mourinho duopoly took hold was Michael Laudrup of Swansea City, who beat Bradford City 5-0 in the 2013 final. That was United's only defeat by a lower-league side in the cup during Ferguson's reign and, of course, plenty has changed since then. They are unbeaten in 10 and a draw against Burnley in their next match will send them top. The title is in both Liverpool and City's hands, after all. Just not good enough in those moments.
"I played there for two-and-a-half years and had an unbelievable time, they took care of me and had no problems".
Aguero has been missing from the City team for most of the season after meniscus surgery in June and a hamstring problem picked up in October. "When he does you a favour like that, you want to repay him". "These disappointments will hurt and those little habits that will create those little margins for you, have been good but we can also be better at the little things".
Whatever XI Manchester United put out they will be too strong for Watford no matter how keen the Championship side are for an upset.
