Man City beat Man United to reach EFL Cup final

  Manchester City deservedly beat Manchester United to reach the Carabao Cup final and will now face Tottenham at Wembley as they look to win the competition for a fourth straight year. Second-half goals from John Stones and Fernandinho secured their progress as City cut loose after a first period in which both sides had goals disallowed. Stones exposed poor United set-piece defending when he nudged home Phil Foden's free-kick from close range five minutes after the restart. Pep Guardiola's side looked the more likely scorers afterwards, despite United's increasing desperation, and when Anthony Martial and Aaron Wan-Bissaka could only combine to clear a corner to the edge of their own box, Fernandinho drilled a first-time volley into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Jose Mourinho Gives Update On Pierre-emile Hojbjerg Injury

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has given an update on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's injury following the nasty tackle he was subject to during Spurs Semi-final clash against Brentford last night.

However, the highlight of the night was Josh Dasilva's tackle on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the closing minutes of the cup tie. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was left with a broken Shin-pad and bloody leg. Josh Dasilva was later red-carded by referee Mike Dean following a check on VAR. Mourinho responded by replacing the Denmark international with Japhet Tanganga.

My Unbeaten Arsenal Record Means Nothing — Mourinho

Jose Mourinho says his 100 per cent managerial home record against Arsenal means nothing as his Tottenham side prepare to face their North London rivals on Sunday, live on Sky Sports. The Spurs boss has hosted Arsenal a total of 10 times as manager of Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham and has never tasted defeat, winning six and drawing four of those encounters. But Mourinho is wary of any such stats, believing they are to be broken and even citing his previous hoodoo away to Newcastle United (failing to win in seven attempts) before smashing that record with a 3-1 victory at the end of last season. “It means nothing for this game, it’s history and that’s it, I don’t really care” Mourinho said. “When I went to Newcastle the last time, the question was that I had neve...
