Manchester United may have got one over their local rivals Manchester City by swiping Alexis Sanchez from under their noses, but Pep Guardiola’s side have gone a step further on the pitch.
The blue half of Manchester, who hold a 12-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, have made it into the final of the Carabao Cup.
It was a difficult night for City as they took on Bristol City, who knocked out United in the previous rounds, in the second leg of the semi-final at Ashton Gate.
City went into the match with a 2-1 advantage from the first meeting between the two clubs.
In the end, Guardiola’s side progressed 5-3 on aggregate, but it was a n nervy end to the match as Bristol City equalised to make it 2-2 on the night.
The Championship outfit needed one goal to take the tie into extra time, but Kevin De Bruyne stepped up to finish off the contest.
Even though City have progressed further in the competition than their rivals United, the fans of Jose Mourinho’s team decided to mock the victory on Twitter.
