We still need to play the semi-final 2nd leg : Mata
Juan Mata insists that United still have work to do to reach the League Cup final despite beating Hull City 2-0 in the 1st leg of semi-final at Old Trafford with the Spaniard breaking the deadlock at close-range after a period of frustration before Marouane Fellaini’s late header sealed a 2-goal cushion heading into the 2nd leg at the KCOM Stadium on 26 Jan. Although the Reds will be many people’s favourites to progress to next month’s final at Wembley, Mata admitted United need to guard against complacency while also be clinical at Yorkshire in a fortnight’s time to seal their place in the final against either Southampton or Liverpool at the end of Feb. He stated: "Hull will create a tough atmosphere at their stadium and need to get a win, so we need to be ready for it. We will try to score again because it makes a massive difference and hopefully, we can play at Wembley again which will be amazing for us and our fans."
