Frank Lampard’s Derby County eliminated Manchester United of the English League Cup at Old Trafford after a thrilling draw (2-2) and an agonizing penalty shoot-out that saw 15 pitches converted until goalkeeper Carson stopped Phil’s shot, Jones.
Mourinho gave rest to Pogba (who has removed the captaincy), Luke Shaw, Valencia, Lindelof and De Gea, five key players of his staff. And I would end up paying.
The game started with a United dominating and it would not take long to put the first goal into the hands of the Spanish Juan Mata after a good combination with Martial, Lukaku, and Lingard.
The Derby reactionary and with a goal of direct lack of Harry Wilson at minute 61 would tie the game, then with the expulsion of goalkeeper Sergio Romero after cutting a danger play with the hand out of the area, everything would be complicated for those led by Mou. Next, Jack Marriott would take advantage of a rejection of the new Man U goalkeeper and place the second goal in the Derby.
Manchester would not give up and 95 minutes would tie it with a header from Fellaini, sending everything to the penalty shootout, where after 15 charges, Phil Jones would fail and give the pass to Frank Lampard’s team.
Mourinho said in the press conference “Of course we wanted to win, but in the end, the League Cup is a minor competition of all those who participate.” Diminishing the defeat or hiding his concern since the Portuguese are not giving the expected results and this is compounded by the bad relationship with Pogba one of the highest paid players of the team that enjoyed the defeat of Manchester from the Old Trafford box recording videos and uploading them to their social networks as if it were a party.
