Manchester United had to fight for victory in their 3-1 win against League One side Nottingham Forest in the 3rd round of the English League Cup.

Michael Carrick opened United’s account but it had to take Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford to ensure victory for Mourinho.

A relieved Mourinho rendered afterwards: 'We deserved to win, clearly, it was difficult, as I expected, but we were totally in control for the first 35 minutes and then the last 45.'

United will face rivals, Manchester City in their next encounter at the Old Trafford.
