Manchester United supervisor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says there will be “no reasons” if his team lose their fourth semi-last in a year.
United play Manchester City at Old Trafford on Wednesday in a rematch of last season’s Carabao Cup semi-last.
Pep Guardiola’s men triumphed on their way to winning the trophy for a third successive year.
Solskjaer’s side also lost in an FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea and to Sevilla in the Europa League last four.
“We have developed a lot in the last 12 months from last season’s EFL Cup semi-final,” he said.
“It isn’t only an instance of figuring out how to win them, it is acquiring the option to go as far as possible. In any case, we are certain and we are in acceptable structure. There are no reasons.”
