Harry Maguire

wants his side to start winning trophies after their 2-0 win against


in their

Carabao Cup

quarter-final on Wednesday.

Edinson Cavani scored the opener in the 88th minute and two minutes later Anthony Martial scored the second goal and helped their side to get into the semi-final.

Manchester United

have not been able to win any trophies since 2017 when under Jose Mourinho they won the Europa League. Since then, they have lost one final and three semi-finals.

"It was an excellent performance and we should have been out of sight, we had three or four great chances. We need to be more clinical," Maguire said.

"Edinson Cavani's finish was excellent on his weak foot too. He's had an injury but it's good to have him back, he's been a top striker throughout his career.

"We are expected to win trophies. It's important to reach these big games but we have to start winning them and lift some trophies for this club.

"We controlled the game and fully deserved the win.”

Everton manager

Carlo Ancelotti

believes they should have won the game as they ‘did enough to win.’

"We did enough to win - good performance we needed to defend which we did well but more in the second half. We had a difficult start but after 20 minutes the game was under control - we didn't play enough attacking football but we had to defend and until the last 20 minutes we did that well," Ancelotti said.


"They had more control, better quality so the game was to defend well which we did. We had some opportunities on the counterattack but that was the game that we planned.

"We left the position in midfield open too much and after that Cavani's quality showed and scored a fantastic goal."
