MK Dons 4-0 Manchester United

"It was a night where many would have expected the Premier League side to run riot, especially given their poor start to their Premier League campaign. However, they were greeted at Stadium:MK by a plucky League One side with nothing to lose.

"Louis van Gaal's men started brightly and looked most likely to score, with strike duo Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez causing all sorts of trouble behind the Dons back-four - but Jonny Evans' mistake opened the floodgates for a cup upset.

"Will Grigg bagged two as Benik Afobe netted his own brace from the bench on an inspiring night for the Football League side. The perfect performance for Karl Robinson's men but not even Angel Di Maria's arrival will lift Red Devils' spirits after this thumping. United never got out of first gear and top stars Welbeck, Hernandez, Shinji Kagawa, Evans and Anderson failed to deliver on the night. Not what you would want to show the man who is tasked with your future at Old Trafford."

Dan Brett reports from Stadium:MK:

"What a night this has been for MK Dons. Many had expected a thumping before kick-off, but few would have expected it to be Louis van Gaal's side that went home with their tails between their legs. Grigg and Bowditch inspirational, Reeves creative and Afobe effective from the bench. United, well... Report reads 'must do better'."

Dan Brett reports from a parallel dimension Stadium:MK:

"This. Is. Incredible. Benik Afobe with the second brace of the night as the United defence are left scrambling and the inquest begins. He gets past three Reds defenders and blasts past De Gea. It may be a young United side, but this is an embarrasment."

Dan Brett reports from Stadium:MK:

"It's almost four! Reeves' cross spins hopefully towards De Gea's near post, and thanks to fine margins, the Spaniard stops the ball from crossing the line. United very poor, Dons rampant. This is cup football...

"United huff and puff and Januzaj hits the outside of the post with an excellent shot - but it, much like his side's evening - fails to come to anything."

Dan Brett reports from Stadium:MK:

"Daniel Powell goes forward and it could have easily been four for MK Dons, but De Gea gets his feet on the ball. Dons coasting into the next round as Van Gaal's side desparately look for a late way back into the match."

GOAL! MK Dons (Afobe) 3-0 Manchester United

Dan Brett reports from Stadium:MK: "He's only been on for a matter of minutes but Afobe puts the nail in United's League Cup coffin. United, once again, give the ball away in an unforgiving area and Reeves tees up his team-mate to tuck under De Gea.It's turning into a cricket score here..."

GOAL! MK Dons (Grigg x2) 2-0 Manchester United

Dan Brett reports from Stadium:MK: "It's Grigg again! The striker, with an audacious chest past David de Gea, puts MK Dons two goals up against Manchester United and they have one foot into the next round! Fantastic ball into the box by Danny Green- pinpoint accuracy - and the forward nets with aplomb to send the home fans into raptures!!"

Alex Young reports on Celtic vs Maribor:

"Disaster for Celtic. Maribor take the lead on the night and on aggregate as Emilio Izaguirre and Charlie Mulgrew both fail to clear before Tavares loops the ball agonisingly out of the reach over Craig Gordon."
