LIVE
90'
Thanks for joining me tonight for the match. See you tomorrow for some Spanish Supercup action.
90'
FT: United 1-3 City. First blood City. A fairly comfortable win for the away side as United offered very little despite Rashford's goal. United have it all to do in the return leg in a few weeks.
90'
3 minutes added time!!!
88'
Rashford's shot is saved and out for a corner.
86'
City sub: Foden on for Mahrez.
82'
Walker is booked for a foul on Fred.
82'
Martial is now on for United. Can he get a goal?
81'
United sub: Greenwood off for Martial.
80'
City sub: De Bruyne off for Jesus.
79'
Luckily De Bruyne is ok.
78'
Not good news here. De Bruyne is down and referee Mike Dean has signalled the medical team on straight away. He was involved in a collision with Lindelof.
74'
It could be more if it wasn't for De Gea, but now United have a great chance to perhaps get 2 in the last 15 minutes or so. They can't, can they??
73'
Williams is booked.
71'
Sterling crosses it to Mahrez, but he hits the half volley straight at De Gea.
71'
GAME ON!!!! Gomes wins the ball, it comes to Greenwood, he plays it through to Rashford who slots it in the bottom corner. 3-1!!!
70'
RASHFORD!!!!!!
69'
United are getting ripped apart. Mahrez takes it by the defender and has a shot from inside the box that De Gea saves well with his foot.
68'
Just a reminder that the 2nd leg will take place in a few weeks. The other tie will take place tomorrow between Leicester and Aston Villa.
64'
United sub: Gomes on for James.
64'
Rashford steps up and fires over the bar.
63'
Rodrigo is booked for a foul on Pereira as he was breaking. Good chance for them to get a shot way with this free-kick. Rashford!!
61'
Both teams are still looking for goals, United are trying really hard to get one back.
54'
Mahrez has a shot from a tight angle but hits the post.
53'
No clear cut shots so far in this half.
50'
Sir Alex is in the stands. United fans how much would you love to have him back?
47'
Williams has a weak shot from just inside the box that he fires straight at Bravo. Good start from the hosts.
46'
United sub: Matic on for Lingard.
46'
And we're back!!
45'
HT: United 0-3 City. A terrific performance from City has torn United apart and this tie could already be finished. However, there are still 135 minutes of football to be played. Bernardo, Mahrez, an own goal and City's dominance separate the sides in Manchester.
45'
1 minute added time.
45'
Pereira has an ambitious effort from about 25 yards out that flies over the bar.
44'
What a dummy that was from De Bruyne to take it past Jones. He completely tore him apart.
43'
WOW the alarm bells are ringing here for United. De Bruyne puts in a cross but Sterling can only fire wide.
40'
United are getting ripped apart here. Mahrez is played through, Williams tries to intercept but plays it straight to De Bruyne. De Bruyne still has it all to do, but he faints right and takes it left to leave Jones behind. He shoots, De Gea makes a strong save but it canons off Pereira and in- 3-0!!
39'
3-0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
36'
Greenwood has a shot from just inside the box that he skews wide.
35'
Lingard is booked for a foul on Fernardinho.
33'
United have their work cut out here. Bernardo finds Mahrez superbly, Mahrez runs with it and rounds De Gea and tap it into the net. Lindelof nearly managed to clear the pass but he just missed it.
32'
2-0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
26'
If any team is to score next it looks most likely to be City, they are getting in some good positions.
24'
Good chance for City. Walker plays a one-two with De Bruyne, Walker crosses in for Sterling but his shot is blocked.
22'
Every time City go forward it looks like they are going to get a shot away.
20'
Now, I wonder how United are going to react here.
18'
WHAT A GOAL!! I'm lost for words. Bernardo picks up the ball, runs with it and from 20 yards unleashes a left-footed shot that flies past De Gea into the top corner. 1-0 City.
17'
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAL CITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12'
Wayne Rooney, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs are all in the stand watching this match. What great teams United had in the Fergie era.
8'
United starting to gain a foothold in the match.
5'
Both teams have started well so far. End to end stuff, but still no chances.
1'
And we're off!!!
Prev.
And the teams are emerging from the tunnel in a packed Old Trafford. Remember the return leg will be at the Etihad in a few weeks.
Prev.
Here is what Ole had to say.
Prev.
City are looking to win the famous trophy for the 3rd year in a row, while United last won it in 2017.
Prev.
United won the last League Cup meeting between the pair in 2016 with Juan Mata netting the goal in that one. You'd have to go back to 2010 to find the last League Cup that City won between the pair. The scorers that day were Tevez and Giggs.
Prev.
What a game we have on our hands tonight with both sides playing strong teams. It looks like this will be United's highest home League Cup attendance in a while with 70,000 fans expected. Both teams agreed to cut their away allocations for the League Cup clashes between the pair.
Prev.
Man City XI: Bravo, Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy, Rodrigo, Gundogan, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Sterling.
Prev.
Man Utd XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Jones, Lindelof, Williams, Fred, Pereira, James, Lingard, Rashford, Greenwood.
Prev.
Hello and welcome to Old Trafford for the first leg of this important Manchester derby league cup fixture. Team news is on its way.
