Manchester United have been knocked out of the Carabao Cup after suffering a shock defeat in the hands of Derby County.
United hosted Derby County for the third round clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, and as early as three minutes, Jose Mourinho’s men were ahead after Juan Mata scored the opener.
United went into half-time on top but Harry Wilson scored the leveller just before the hour mark. Jack Mariott scored again for the Rams in the 85th minute, but Marouane Fellaini scored a 95th minute goal to send the game into extra time.
United lost the game on penalties 7-8 with Phil Jones missing the last kick to send the Rams through to the fourth round.
United’s captain on the night Ashley Young has revealed his disappointment at the scores of the game and reveals that his side should have done more to win the game.
“I am not sure we have done enough in the 90 minutes to manage to win the game,” said the skipper.
“We have managed to dig deep and show character and take it to penalties but it just wasn’t enough to win the game.
“At 1-0 we had chances to win the match and on a different day the ball goes in the back of the net and it is a different game.
“When you play teams from the lower divisions it is always going to be tough and they had more intensity than we did. Obviously when you are playing these games you have to show that intensity and go further than the opposition but we didn’t do that and we got punished and they won the game.
“We showed that (intensity) when we started and went 1-0 ahead but you have got to build on that.
“When you don’t take your chances you get punished. Derby are a good footballing team and they showed that.
“We showed character to get ourselves back into it and take the game to penalties but it is a lottery from there.”
