Liverpool legend, Michael Owen has predicted tonight’s  Carabao first-leg game between Manchester United and Manchester City.

Manchester United will host Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Following a goalless draw against Wolves in the FA Cup over the weekend, Michael Owen has predicted the club that will be victorious after 90 minutes of play.

“Manchester United won the recent league game between the sides at the Etihad but I expect holders Manchester City to take a lead into the second leg later in the month,” Owen was quoted by Mirror UK as saying.

“With Marcus Rashford on the bench and Anthony Martial missing the game through illness, United failed to have a shot on target in their goalless draw with Wolves in the FA Cup at the weekend.

“They will improve back at Old Trafford but, with Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay missing through injury, United do not have the quality in midfield that their neighbours do.”

“City made serene progress in the FA Cup with a facile win over Port Vale on Saturday and I expect Pep Guardiola’s side take a lead back to the Etihad in the second leg.”

The match will start by 9pm.
