’s men on Wednesday in the semi-final game five days after beating Aston Villa in the Premier League, which has given them enough rest for the derby.

"You have two teams who want to get to the final, we've had four days [rest] now after Villa so hopefully we've got more fresh legs,"

Solskjaer said


"It’s a difficult season but we'll benefit from rotations made, that's going to be important with having fresh legs.

The Norwegian claims his squad has made strides after last season and is optimistic that the Red Devils will have enough to send City off to set up a final meeting with either Tottenham or Brentford.

He added:

"The semi-final is a chance to get to the final and get your hands on a trophy in the next round. For this team it would be a very, very big step, getting our hands on a trophy. We have developed a lot in last 12 months, since the last semi in the Carabao Cup.

"It’s not just learning to win semis, we've also earned the right to feel we can go all the way with our performances, we are confident with our form so there’s no excuses.
