Manchester United slumped to a 2-0 defeat in the hands of neighbours Manchester City on a cool Wednesday night at Old Trafford.
Goals from John Stones and Fernandinho were all Guardiola’s men needed to book a ticket to Wembley for the fourth straight season.
The visitors romped into the lead as John Stones deft tap finished off a cool free kick into the box.
A flurry of chances went by for both sides until Captain Fernandiho put the game to bed with his first goal since 2018 after his follow up strike to a poorly cleared De Bruyne corner cannoned past United line of defence.
This latest ouster proves to be a headache for United boss Solksjaer who is yet to lead his Red Army to a major cup final ever since taking over. The Norwegian has been to four semi-finals but is yet to break his jinx of making a final berth.
Guardiola and City book a ticket to Wembley having won the past three editions of the competition and Jose Mourinho who is in his first cup final with his Tottenham Hotspur side stand in the way of the Spaniard.
