Morgan Schneiderlin is hoping that the Capital One Cup can be the first piece of silverware he wins as a Manchester United player.

Our chances of winning the competition were boosted by the exit of Chelsea and Arsenal last night.

The cup is something that allows every player to get an opportunity. I know the manager likes to change some players and it’s very important because we are a group and everyone plays a part and does their best. We want to win this cup.

Man United should try to win everything and that’s what we’re aiming to do. You saw when we played Ipswich that we were very serious about the competition and we want to carry that on against Middlesbrough, who are a good team. They were close to being back in the Premier League last season so it will be a hard game and we have prepared as seriously as possible.
