Pereira says Man Utd players want Carabao Cup

Manchester United star Andreas Pereira says his teammates are up for the Carabao Cup.

The Red Devils face off against Colchester United in the quarter finals at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

It gives them a chance to book a semi final berth.

And Pereira insists the team is desperate to go all the way and win the trophy.

"It's an important game and we'll get ready and prepared for it," he told reporters.

"It's a big chance to get to the semi-finals and win a cup.

"It's very nice to be at home with the home fans enjoying another game.

"Colchester will be well up for it, it's the game of their lives and we know everybody wants to beat United. But we will be ready for the fight.

"My new year's goal is winning trophies, it would be a first Carabao Cup for me, and, after that, we have the FA Cup and Europa League.

"We have three cups and I want to win all three."
