The only goal scored by Spanish international, Juan Mata, has assisted Manchester United to knock out Manchester city of English Football League Cup to reach the quarter-finals.

The Spaniard pounced to drive low into the corner from Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s pull-back as United set up a home tie with West Ham.

Paul Pogba had hit a post moments earlier as the game came alive in the second period, following a first half in which neither of the bitter rivals managed a shot on target.

City boss, Pep Guardiola made nine changes to his side, who are now six games without a win in all competitions – his worst run as a manager.

The victory was United’s second in five matches, and only Jose Mourinho’s fourth win in 18 meetings with Guardiola.
