MK Dons 4-0 Manchester United


dehaiWill Grigg scores in the 25th and 63rd minutes and Benik Afobe in the 70th and 84th as they beat 20 times premier league champions in the league cup competition. It is the first time United have conceded 4 in a league cup against a lower league opposition. Van Gaal:

It’s a matter of making errors at the wrong moments. When you see the goals against us, I believe it was big errors in building up situations that you cannot make these errors. Four at once, then it’s 0-2, then it’s very difficult to come back in the game.
