Man United are now just one step away to Wembley after their 3-0 emphatic win over Colchester on Wednesday night, December 18, booking them a place in the semi-finals of Carabao Cup.

United are keen to retain the title they last won three years ago under Jose Mourinho who led them to a 3-2 victory over Southampton to help the club lift the trophy for the fifth time.

Colchester, on the other hand, were looking to book their place in the last four stage - which would have been their first time in history to reach the stage.

However, the much-changed United side crashed all hopes, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial steering the Manchester outfit to victory.

However, the Red Devils had to wait until the second half to find the back of the net after both teams settling for a barren draw in the first half.

Rashford broke the deadlock in the 51st minute, beating two players before finding the far corner after a brilliant counter-attack initiated by Sergio Romero who was in goal.
