Juan Mata scores, Man United v Man City - EFL Cup Fourth Round


Man United fans delighted with League Cup victory against Man City

Juan Mata scores fourth-round opener and match winner from Zlatan Ibrahimovic's pullback to sent Manchester United to the EPL Cup Quarter-Finals. Ibra held off Otamendi in an aerial battle then squared for Mata to sidefoot home from eight yards out in the games only goal, final score 1-0.

Manchester United redeemed themselves after their loss to Chelsea, playing uptempo and with passion in their defeat of cross-town rivals and noisy neighbors Manchester City.

“It was nice to score but the most important thing was to put the last defeat behind us,” said Mata. “We had a bad day in London at Chelsea and we knew we had to be strong and give 100% in this game.  You are going to get criticism if you play for Manchester United and things are not going well. That’s professional football, and you have to learn to deal with it. After a defeat, everyone is going to speak bad about the team and about the manager. We as a group need to stay strong and believe we can do great things together.”

This was the fifth League Cup meeting between the sides. The previous four EPL Cup clashes were all exciting and memorable. Fans showed up at Old Trafford expecting some feistiness in the massive Manchester Derby. Both managers hoped for needed a win – Pep Guardiola now has not had a win in his last six matches.  José Mourinho and his side were delighted with the 1-0 victory after everything going wrong in the Red Devils’ 0-0 draw at Liverpool and recent 4-0 shellacking against Chelsea. 

Jose Mourniho’s Man Utd side and Pep Guardiola’s Man City side faced off again at Old Trafford in a massive Manchester Derby on Wednesday. The Red Devils won the clash 1-0 knocking out City thanks to Juan Mata's 54' min goal to the delight of the passionate Man United fans.

I’m happy. The players they did everything, said Jose Mourinho after the game. “Last week everything went against us, obviously it hurts but we are professionals. We felt deeply such a negative result and today was a chance to clean away that feeling a little bit because it’s a derby and a knockout. To win against Man City I think gives everyone a better feeling and I’m happy for the players and especially for the fans.

Six weeks after Manchester City’s 2-1 Premier League win against Manchester United at Old Trafford, United got revenge as Mourinho’s decision to play a virtually full-strength side was a good one. Spaniard Juan Mata fired home from 10 meters in the 54th minute ffrom a lay-off by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. As a result, City is winless in six games under Spanish manager Pep Guardiola, the worst run of his distinguished coaching career. Guardiola rested most of his key players.
