The Citizens booked a place in the semis after they waltzed past struggling Arsenal on Tuesday night, with the Pep Guardiola-side hammering the Gunners 4-1 at the Emirates.

City, who are arguably one of the most successful teams in the competition will be keen to see off United for a chance to reach the finals.

The Etihad dwellers have won the competition three times on the bounce and will no doubt fancy lifting it for the fourth consecutive season.

Two other semi-finalists Tottenham Hotspur and Brentford will square off in their own fixture.

Spurs earned a date with the Championship side after beating Stoke City 3-1 in the quarterfinals, with Harry Kane and Gareth Bale finding the back of the net.

Whereas the tie looks easy for Spurs on paper, Jose Mourinho will have to burn the midnight oil to figure out on how to get past Brentford.

The Bees edged Newcastle United on their way to the semis, having also eliminated four other big teams in the previous rounds.
