A thrilling match that went into extra-time but it was Man Utd who are through to the League Cup final.
Man Utd started well and had plenty of chances but a great goalkeeping by Gomes prevented the goals. It was however Niko Kranjcar who gave Tottenham the lead with a powerful close range effort in the 70th min to level the score 3-3 in aggregate.
The match then went into extra-time and Phil Jones wasted no time by scoring in the 97th min with a close range finish from Valencia’s corner. Javier Hernandez then put Man Utd ahead in the 104th min but Luka Modric equalised instantly minutes later with a superb effort from the edge of the area leaving De Gea no chance.
Tottenham needed one more goal to put the match into shootout but Man Utd hold to the 5-4 aggregate till the final whistle.
An entertaining match and pleased with the boys fighting spirit.
Man of the Match: Michael Carrick
