Manchester United defender Chris Smalling sees tonight's Capital One Cup tie with Liverpool as a must win.

The Reds defender played the full 90 minutes of Sunday’s 4-1 defeat in the Manchester derby.

“I think it’s good there’s a big game coming up against Liverpool so we can try to hit back.

“We normally reply with a good result,” Smalling told ManUtd.com. “Sunday’s match was a big disappointment, probably one of the biggest disappointments I have felt and I think that a lot of the players were hurt by that performance.”
