Manchester United have one hand on a place in the Carabao Cup final after taking a 3-0 victory in the first leg of the semi-final.

The Red Devils made an electric start as Marcus Rashford continued his excellent recent form, bursting from his own half, squeezing between a couple of defenders and firing home to give United the lead after just six minutes.

United doubled their lead shortly before the half as Wout Weghorst scored his first goal for the club, before Bruno Fernandes sealed a comfortable win in the 89th minute.
