3-0: Rashford, with a double, and Antony take United into the semi-finals

A while ago his derby this Saturday against his eternal city rivals, Manchester City by Pep Guardiola, in a Premier match, this Tuesday Manchester United qualified for the semifinals of the Carabao Cup, the English League Cup, after defeating Charlton 3-0, who are now playing in the Third Division.

Antony put the rope on the path for United two games from the final (the ‘semis’ of the Carabao Cup are played back-to-back) thanks to a great left-footed goal from outside the area and assisted by Fred.

United played without Bruno Fernandes due to suspension and initially without other stars, such as Marcus Rashford, who was initially rested by Erik ten Hag, coach of the ‘red devils’. Meanwhile, in the Old Trafford eleven they played Tom Heaton under the sticks (he made his debut as a starter and has only played one game since signing in 2021, and came on as a substitute) and 17-year-old midfielder Kobbie Mainoo (his United debut).

Manchester United started well with a glowing Alejandro Garnacho, who brought danger before the goal of Ashley Maynard-Brewer, who in the 84th minute evaded a great save recorded by Christian Eriksen, an intervention that the Charlton goalkeeper added to other brilliants throughout the match.

But, although United played well in the first half, they could only score one goal, Antony’s, in the 21st minute and with a great shot. in 35′ Fred, who, to a good degree, brings energy and balance to his team, smashes the ball against the post.One minute before Diogo Dalot left due to injury and Aaron Wan-Bissaka took his place.

The emotion was maintained indeed until the end, as United did not score their second goal until the 90th minute, so Charlton lived their dream of reaching the semifinals for much of the second half, cheered on by 8,900 of their fans in the Old Trafford stands.

But Rashford, who came on in the 60′ replacing Antony, sealed United’s passage to the ‘semis’ by scoring a late double. The English international made it 2-0 after 90 minutes, which ends with the quality of a counterattack in which Facundo Pellistri assists him. And in the 94′, Rashford made it 3-0 precisely taking advantage of the pass from ex-madridista Casemiro.

This Tuesday, Newcastle also qualified for the semifinals (2-0 against Leicester). And this Wednesday the other two quarterfinal matches will be played, Nottingham Forest against Julen Lopetegui’s Wolves, on the one hand, and, on the other, Southampton against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
