As I had an extra hour today, I did a bit of research on City and United cup draws to see if I could explode a myth. I analysed all the League Cup and FA Cup draws over the last 3 seasons, 15/16, 16/17 and 17/18 to date. In total, 31 matches covered (statistically significant?). The results are shown below and I think, quite remarkable. United/City - Home v Away draws United Home = 56% City Home = 20% United/City - lower league opposition United lower league opposition = 69% City lower league opposition = 20% So United have roughly 3 times as many home draws as City and also play lower league teams roughly 3 times more frequently than City. Draw your own conclusions.
