Carabao Cup: Solskjaer names ‘man of the match’ after Man Utd’s 1-0 win over Man City

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named midfielder, Nemanja Matic as his ‘man of the match’ following his side’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg 1-0 victory over Manchester City on Wednesday.

Solskjaer’s side defeated Man City at Etihad, thanks to Matic’s first-half strike.

Pep Guardiola’s men, however, progressed to the final of the competition with a 3-2 aggregate where they will play Aston Villa on March 1.

Asked which players impressed him the most, Solskjaer told United’s official website after the match: “David shows again why he’s the best ‘keeper in the world.

“I think the back-four with Harry [Maguire] and Victor [Lindelof] were excellent.

“Young Brandon [Williams] has been unbelievable again and Nemanja was a man of the match for me.”

Man United will now face Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday.
