Manchester City and Everton have grown quite familiar with one another in recent weeks, but something has to give Wednesday.
Manchester City welcomes Everton to The Etihad Stadium for the second leg of their Capital One Cup (Football League Cup) semifinal series. Everton leads 2-1 thanks to its first-leg win Jan. 6. The teams played to a goal-less draw in the Premier League seven days later.
Manchester City now must overturn the Toffees’ advantage in order to reclaim the trophy it won in 2014. Everton looks to reach the final for the first time since 1984.
Everton will rely on Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four goals in his last five League Cup games but has failed to hit the mark in his four Premier League appearances in 2016.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is expected to replace starting goalkeeper Joe Hart with Willy Caballero, who has started all four of the games his team has played in this competition in 2015-16 but has watched all but three of his team’s 29 Premier League and UEFA Champions League games from the bench.
Here’s how to watch Manchester City vs. Everton.
When: Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 2:45 p.m. ET
