Manchester United 3-0 Charlton Athletic: Antony and Rashford secure Red Devils Qualification into the Semi-Finals of the Carabao Cup

Manchester United are through to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup/League Cup (Carabao Cup), after defeating Charlton Athletic 3-0 in their Quarter-final clash at Old Trafford.

As expected, United dominated proceedings and duly took the lead when Antony curled his effort outside of the box for his fifth goal of the campaign in all competitions.

Manager Erik ten Hag later subbed in some of his big players in the second half and that paid off as Marcus Rashford netted a brace in the 90th and 93rd minutes to see out the resistance of the visitors.
