Manchester United vs Manchester City, Capital One Cup semifinal highlights: A dominant first-half performance by Manchester City helped them secure a thumping 3-1 victory against their local rivals Manchester United in the first leg of the semifinal clash in the Capital One Cup at Old Trafford on Wednesday. Bernardo Silva opened the scoring in the 17th minute of the match, as his effort from the edge of the D dipped inside the United goalpost after ramming the crossbar.

The other two goals for City came in quick succession, with Riyad Mahrez netting the second and Andreas Pereira deflecting the third inside his own goal. However, the Red Devils put up a great fightback in the final forty-five minutes as they maintained the possession. Marcus Rashford brought some hope among the United supporters when he scored their only goal in the 69th minute and came extremely close from completing his brace in the 88th minute.
