Manchester United manager David Moyes was pleased with his side's performance against Stoke City last night as he is delighted to reach the Capital One Cup semi-final.

Ashley Young and Patrice Evra were on the scoresheet as the Premier League champions secured a 2-0 win over Stoke City.

The Red Devils will now face Sunderland - the team that sent Chelsea packing in the semi-finals next month.

And the former Everton boss was pleased at his side display after the difficult clash with a good Stoke team.

Moyes told Sky Sports: "I think especially in the first half it was very difficult for the players to play.

"It was one of the worst conditions, players will say to play in heavy winds is as bad as anything.

"The first goal was always going to make a big difference, we were in control after that and then we got the second goal and saw the game out well."

Moreover, Moyes insisted that he will not be taking Gus Poyet's managed Sunderland team lightly after they defeated Chelsea in the quarter-finals on Tuesday night.

He said: "I'm glad we are through, it will be a tough semi-final against Sunderland now.

"It's a cup game and it shows you how Sunderland are playing that they beat Chelsea. They have a new manager now so it will be tough, but we are just glad to get through."

Meanwhile, Stoke manager Mark Hughes, had no complaints after the game as he admitted United deserved to progress to the semi-finals.

He told reporters: "I thought we made a fair fist of it in the first half against all the elements and thought we were in decent shape.

"Our organisation was good, United weren't creating too many chances. But United, on the night, deserved to win, they just had a little bit more power and pace.

"We weren't able to ask enough questions of them in the second half."
