City manager Pep Guardiola spoke to Sky sports after the game, saying: “It is an incredible victory for us, to beat United away, to reach the final, and of course this is for him.
“The team is ready. It was an outstanding performance. We were tired, they had two more days off to rest, but we achieved something incredible.
“I know the Carabao Cup is not the Champions League, but four times in a row to reach the final is incredible.
“I’m so impressed by the boys. The final is not next week. Tottenham is a top, top team but we will have time to think about it.”
Pep also paid tribute to City legend Colin Bell saying: “This is for him, for his family. This person helped to build something special for this club.”
