Leeds 0-3 Manchester United

Leeds United bowed out of the Carling Cup at Elland Road as Manchester United strolled to victory.

Leeds had a good early opportunity when Tom Lees, Darren O`Dea and Ross McCormack all had chances cleared following a Robert Snodgrass corner but that was as good as it got for the home side.

Michael Owen opened the scoring on fifteen minutes when his left foot shot trickled into the corner of the net.

He doubled the lead just past the half hour when he gave Andy Lonergan no chance from the edge of the area.

Ryan Giggs finished the tie off as a contest in injury time at the end of the first half when he ghosted past Aidy White to fire in a third.

The second half was something of a non-contest with neither side creating any real goalscoring opportunities.


Lonergan, Lees, Bromby, O`Dea, White, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, McCormack (Forssell 52), Becchio (Vayrynen 52), Keogh (Nunez 66)

3 shots on goal first half 3 goals. Its no wonder they are on such a run at the moment but hopefully their luck will run out, I have never witnessed goal ratio to shots like that before. That was the worst performance from a Leeds team who should have beaten a weak side like that.......

I felt every time they attacked they would score, that is how much confidence I have in our defence at the moment. We were all over the place.

3 shots on goal in the first 10 minutes that were all blocked by defenders that never went backwards...Leeds were outclassed by the scums youngsters and all Leeds Internationals couldn't do anything about it...I hope this is a wake up call for most of our players...
