Juan Mata has said that while Manchester United have taken "the first step to Wembley", the Red Devils will have to be alert to ensure that they advance into the final of the League Cup later this month.
Goals from Mata and Marouane Fellaini saw Man United record a 2-0 victory over Hull City in the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday night, making the English giants the overwhelming favourites to make the final.
Mata, however, has insisted that "the second leg will be difficult in their stadium" and has warned his team against complacency ahead of their trip to the KCOM Stadium on January 26.
"We needed to play quicker and create a bit more in the second period and we did that. It is a good result," Mata told Sky Sports News. "It is the first step to Wembley. The second leg will be difficult in their stadium, but we got a good result. Let's try to win the second leg."
Man United have now won their last nine games in all competitions and will attempt to make it 10 when they welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
