League Cup: Sunderland must be 'mentally strong' - Gus Poyet

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet says his side must be "mentally strong" against Manchester United in Wednesday's League Cup semi-final.

The Black Cats go in to the second leg with a 2-1 advantage, but United manager David Moyes will be looking to overturn that deficit at Old Trafford to maintain hopes of marking his first season in charge with a domestic trophy.

Poyet added that "too many" people are expecting a Manchester United v Manchester City final, but he hopes that would not be the case.

Watch highlights of both semi-finals on The League Cup show, on the website and BBC One at 23:15 GMT on Wednesday 22 January.
