It’s a repeat of last year’s semi-final when the two Manchester clubs once again go head-to-head in the last four of the Carabao Cup.
Manchester City triumphed 3-2 on aggregate last year – winning 3-1 at Old Trafford before Manchester United won the second leg 1-0 – before winning the tournament for the third year in a row.
This time the semi-final will be a single-leg affair – one of the changes made to this year’s competition to help ease fixture congestion – and both managers will be allowed to make five substitutions.
The two sides met last month and played out a drab goalless draw.
But, with both sides in good form and one guaranteed to make the Wembley showpiece, Wednesday’s match should make for a better spectacle.
What time is Man Utd vs Man City?
The second Manchester derby of the season will kick off at 7.45pm on Wednesday.
Whoever wins will play Tottenham Hotspur in the final, which has been pushed back to April from its usual late February slot in the hope fans will be able to attend.
Man Utd vs Man City TV channel and live stream
Like other Carabao Cup games, the semi-final will be shown on Sky Sports.

Man Utd have enjoyed the benefit of two extra days to prepare for tonight's semi-final, having last been in action on Friday, whereas City played on Sunday.
There are still question marks over the fitness of Utd defender Victor Lindelof, who has missed the last two games with a back injury. If the Swede does miss out, it could mean Eric Bailly retains his place alongside Harry Maguire.
Goalkeeper Dean Henderson has played in every minute of Utd's Carabao Cup campaign this season, so is expected to return, but striker Edinson Cavani will miss out as he's still suspended.
City boss Pep Guardiola has hinted he will deploy an unorthodox attacking plan at Old Trafford due to Covid, injuries and suspensions.
Sergio Aguero is still not yet fully fit while Bernado Silva is suspended.
Guardiola told Sky Sports: "We don't have strikers. Gabriel [Jesus] and Ferran [Torres] have Covid, Raheem [Sterling] can play there but I prefer to play him wider instead of a central position."
