Man Utd determined to win league cup - Evans

Jonny Evans made it clear that Manchester United are attempting to go all the way in the Capital One Cup this season.

United put Sunday's 4-1 derby loss to Manchester City behind them by beating arch enemies Liverpool 1-0 in the third round at Old Trafford on Wednesday night and Evans, making his first start of the campaign, said the league cup is a target for the reigning Premier League champions.

"We want to win it. It was the first trophy I won and it was a great feeling to win it then," he told Sky Sports 1 after Javier Hernandez scored the only goal of the game.

"It's a competition we want to win, we will be taking it seriously."

Evans added: "I think the fans enjoyed it, we certainly enjoyed it.

"It was a hard game, Liverpool have been playing expansive football.

"I am just glad we got the goal after half-time and held on.

"They put out a strong team. There were a lot of lads out there who haven't had a lot of football and were getting a bit tired towards the end."
