United secured an important 2-0 win over Hull City in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday night.
“Before facing Reading on Saturday we knew that we had three games in three different competitions," he told MUTV. “We knew that if we could keep the winning run going then we couldn't have more confidence going into one of the biggest games of the season. Everyone is really up for it.
“Now we can switch our attention to that game. I think we'll recover on Wednesday, then we have a good few days to work on the tactics on how to nullify their threats and to really impact our own play to keep this run going. We know how important this game is at the top end of that table."
