We can beat Manchester City - Baines.

Everton full-back Leighton Baines is convinced Roberto Martinez's Toffees can upset Manchester City in the League Cup semi-final second leg.

The Citizens host Everton on Wednesday night as they look to seal a place in the final against Liverpool at the Wembley stadium, but Baines says his side are capable of sealing a win at the Etihad.

Everton have a one-goal lead going into this intriguing tie after winning 2-1 in the first leg at Goodison Park.

"Getting to the final is massive for all of us," Baines was quoted as saying by The Mirror.

"It’s a tough semi to come through and you don’t always want to talk too much about what it might mean, because there is still a lot of work to do before then.

"But the truth of it is, we know we can beat Manchester City.

"We have just beaten them in the first leg and drawn against them in the league and another result like that would see us through. So we have just got to match what we have done in our last couple of games against them and we will be in the final.

"Of course, it is easier to say than do.

"City are a top side, and I am sure they will come out fast and try to get a goal, but we will be prepared for that and we’re capable of scoring ourselves. We will be ready."
