The Citizens are through to the Carabao Cup final despite losing 1-0 to United, thanks to a 3-2 victory aggregate.

Manchester City midfield maestro Kevin de Bruyne said he can’t understand how his side lost the match against Manchester United at the Etihad on Wednesday night.

The Citizens are through to the Carabao Cup final despite losing 1-0 to United in the second-leg of the semi-final.

Nemanja Matic broke the deadlock in the 35th minute with a brilliant strike to give United hope but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's boys were not able to seal a remarkable comeback.

The Premier League champions eventually profited from Matic’s sending off to win 3-2 on aggregate and booked a Wembley date with Aston Villa on the 1st of March.

City had more chances and even scored twice through Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero but both goals were denied as the linesman raised his flag for offside.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Belgium midfielder De Bruyne said:"I can't really comprehend how we lost this game. For me Manchester United didn't have one chance today. In the end, good we go through.

"I think we got sloppy. The goal we did not clear the lines well and out of nothing they scored. You can tell me if they had a chance again. We fought when we had to and will learn from the mistakes.

"If we win the final no-one will talk about this game. The final is a nice day and we will fight to win the cup. If we do it will be nice."
