Juan Mata and Manchester United, through to the semifinals of the Carabao Cup

The 3-0 against Colchester United serves a new tie with Manchester City. The Asturian player disputed the whole match and was one of the best in the team. He participated with a great pass in the third goal.

Manchester United is already in the semifinals of the Carabao Cup. The Red Devils won Colchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford and now they will face Manchester City in the semi-finals of the tournament, in a new derby that promises to be exciting.

Juan Mata, who´d been in the starting XI for the second time in the last three games, had a good performance. As shows his nomination – by the club´s TV pundits – for best United player of the match along with Maguire and Rashford, who finally won the vote.

The Spanish international stayed close to 90% of passes completed, took three shots on goal and participated in the third goal of the night, with a nice pass to Rashford who set it up for Martial’s finish (minute 61). Earlier, the goals from Rashford himself (51min) and Jackson with an own goal (56min) eased the qualification, after a first half in which Colchester, despite its inferior category (League Two), was competitive.

Secured the semifinals, it´s time to focus on the Premier again. This Sunday, at Vicarage Road, Manchester United will face Watford.
