In the 37th minute of this evening’s Carabao Cup semi-final between Manchester City and Manchester United, Pep Guardiola’s side ripped the Red Devils on the counter-attack.
City broke free and Kevin de Bruyne picked up the ball after Riyad Mahrez and Brandon Williams battled for the ball.
The Belgian playmaker charged into the box and sent United centre-back Phil Jones for a ‘hotdog’ – according to some fans with a lovely piece of skill before firing a shot on goal that was parried away.
Unfortunately for the Red Devils, the ball was parried straight on to Andreas Pereira and the ball was deflected into the back of the net.
Take a look at City’s third against their cross-town rivals below:
City are running riot!
An own goal has extended their lead to 3-0 before half-time at Old Trafford.
