TWO clubs who have shown some notable signs of improvement in recent weeks meet at Goodison Park on Wednesday night as Everton entertain Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.
The Toffees have come through a sticky patch to chalk up eye-catching wins over Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal.
That trio of triumphs has propelled Carlo Ancelotti’s charges to fourth in the Premier League table and the Merseysiders will be looking to keep the feelgood factor flowing by booking a League Cup semi-final berth this midweek.
Standing in the Blues’ way of place in the last-four is a Manchester United side who have avoided defeat in each of their last seven domestic fixtures.
Last time out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side savaged Leeds 6-2 at Old Trafford, but the beleaguered Norwegian is still searching for a first major trophy as Man United manager.
However, the Carabao Cup represents one of the Red Devils’ best opportunities to win silverware this season and United will be looking to replicate their 3-1 victory at this venue last month.
Everton 1-2 Manchester United
