By on October 26, 2016

Manchester United booked their place in the quarter finals of the EFL Cup after edging past rivals Manchester City 1-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Pep Guardiola made plenty of changes to his usual starting eleven while Jose Mourinho fielded a strong side and it appeared to show as the hosts dominated proceedings during the early stages.

However, the Red Devils had to wait until shortly after the break before they broke the deadlock as Juan Mata fired home in to the bottom corner following good work from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It turned out to be the winner as United held on to secure a much needed win over their rivals to book their place in the quarter final draw.
