Luke Shaw believes Manchester United need to use the "massive" derby victory against Manchester City to start a winning run

Juan Mata's second-half strike at Old Trafford secured United an EFL Cup quarter-final spot and local bragging rights as they bounced back from Sunday's 4-0 defeat at Chelsea.

And Shaw wants to build on the 1-0 win when Burnley visit in the Premier League on Saturday, with the left-back also targeting wins at Fenerbahce and Swansea before the international break.

"It was very important," the 21-year-old said. "We focused on Man City leading up to the game, but we knew how big this game was.

"We saw (Pep) Guardiola said it was like a final and to us that is what it felt like and to get the win was massive.

"I think [it's] a big confidence boost after obviously the disappointing result that we bounced back, got a win and now we need to go on a winning streak I would say."

"We knew they were going to come and start putting up the centre-backs for the long balls and crosses, but as a unit and as a defensive block I thought we did really well towards the end to keep the win."

United will now face West Ham in one of two all-Premier League EFL Cup quarter-finals, after the Hammers saw off Chelsea 2-1 at the London Stadium in a clash marred by fan violence.

"It is a positive draw for us and, of course, at home as well - if it was away, it might have been a different story," said Shaw. "Every game is tough but I am really happy to have got West Ham.

"I was hoping for Southampton away because I've haven't been back there yet, but it wasn't to be. I am really happy with the draw."
