    Louis van Gaal

    It does not get any easier for Louis van Gaal with a trip to Burnley on the horizon, surely lightning won't strike twice?

    Head over here for all the reports and reaction from a massive night of cup shocks and until next time, goodbye.

    Chris, in London, via text: The League Cup is the easiest route to a trophy and United have realistically now only got the FA Cup to play for. LVG got this one badly wrong.

    Sheelagh, via text: Can we get someone to check that the signature on Angel Di Maria's contract is dry, or actually there! He'll be looking out of OT already!

    John, in Bury, via text: I've seen United lose to York, Oxford and Southend and where are they now? Ajax play 3-5-2 with no problems. Learning to bomb on is the problem! This result means nothing.

  4. Manager reaction

    MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, on the arrival of Angel Di Maria: "I think he shall contribute very much in our way of playing. He is a creative player. I can change the system with Di Maria because he can play on the wing and midfield. He can contribute and that is very important.

    "But we don't have to expect that from tomorrow the world has been changed, he has to adapt to the culture of England, the culture of the Premier League and the philosophy of Manchester United.

  5. Post update

    MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd

    There was one bright spot about tonight for Manchester United fans, and that was the confirmation of the arrival of Angel Di Maria.

    After the three results, and performances, so far, will Louis van Gaal be tempted to strengthen even further before the transfer window closes.

    James Attenborough: I don't think LVG has factored in that forwards press harder in the UK than on the continent.

    Shohidur Rahman: Completely disagree with everything Van Gaal said. Wasn't just errors, we were completely outplayed. And wrong team selection.

    Jeremy Pound: Maybe van Gaal fielded a weakened side because he was scared that MK Dons might expose just how poor his first-choice team is?

    Jason Roberts


    "Manchester United don't need to rest players and I was surprised at the team Louis van Gaal picked. They don't understand the system. When I played against Manchester United, there was a nasty streak to them, they would push each other.

    "The confidence has eroded and they can begin to see the chinks in their armour. They've lost big personalities like Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic who know how to ride out the situation, know what to do. The players he's bringing in are to play a 3-5-2 formation. There's a lot of questions to be answered."

    Tom Quinton Fox: Manchester United fans are putting a 4-0 loss to a League 1 team down to having a weak team. That weak team had five Premier League-winning players in it.

    Joe Prileszky: Van Gaal already talking about luck? That was quicker than Moyes. How long until they "try their best"?

    Jai Dorey: This just shows how good SAF was and how he was. The players at United have shown no heart or desire since he retired.

  15. Manager reaction

    MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, when asked if the club would be signing any more players in this transfer window: "No. This is same question your other colleagues have put. We know exactly what we are doing. We have lost in the Capital One Cup, and so tonight has cost us the chance of a trophy, and that is disappointing."

  16. Manager reaction

    MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd

    When asked if he regretted making so many changes to the team, Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal said: "No, you have to analyse the problem and I've done that. We have nine injuries and had a very young team. I have seen them trying to do their utmost best so you cannot expect more from players. Fans have to believe in our philosophy, we are building a team which we cannot make in one month or even one year. It's very disappointing but I hope they maintain their confidence in our club."

    Phillip Leigh: It's as bad as it gets! The United players should be ashamed of themselves absolutely ashamed! No spirit, no passion, no desire.

    Chris Pearson: Signing Di Maria is like putting Royal icing on a Victoria sponge cake. Looks good but it's still only a sponge cake underneath.

    Jonathan Everett: LVG doesn't care about the League Cup. I bet he doesn't even know who MK Dons are. That was a training game to evaluate for him.

    MK Dons 4-0 Man Utd

    More from MK Dons manager Karl Robinson: "Manchester United are massive, people will always want to pick bones in their side but my players deserve an awful lot of credit. We worked hard all week, sometimes you work hard and don't get what you deserve but the players did really, really well. It has been a perfect evening.

    About Louis van Gaal signing autographs after the game: "To be fair to him, people can criticise that but that is not for me to say, I look up to him immensely. He was signing autographs for young children, whatever he decides to do at the end of a football match is not for me to talk about."

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, speaking to Sky Sports: "It's a matter of making errors at wrong moments. When you see the goals against us, I believe they were big errors that you cannot make. Then it was 0-2 and it was very difficult to come back into the game. In the second half we created a lot of chances and didn't have the luck to score. Then two more errors and it's 0-3 and 0-4."

    Karl Robinson

    MK Dons manager Karl Robinson, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "I thought we were fearless. I am so proud of them. We tried to lock on to their two wide centre halves and play a little high and play brave football. We did an awful lot of work to prepare on Thursday and Friday but it is about heart and hunger to win football matches, and Ben Reeves' tenacity to win the ball is what we are all about."

    On a weakened Manchester United team: "Someone reminded me that the two strikers were playing at a World Cup not so long ago. Then they put Adnan Januzaj on and you think 'here we go', but I thought my players deserve an awful lot of credit, their work ethic was sensational."

    MK Dons manager Karl Robinson, speaking to Sky Sports: "We spoke before the game about their quality. The first 15 minutes, we found it difficult and looked disjointed but the players turned it round. I'm a little bit in shock... it's ridiculous and something dreams are made of.

    "You could see by the end of it United just wanted to get off the pitch. MK Dons were sensational and did everything you could ask of them.

    "Louis van Gaal contributed by playing people out of position and a system that didn't suit them. They didn't know what they were doing, didn't know what they're playing. The players aren't that bad but they don't understand the system they're playing in."

    Paul, from Formby, via text: LVG is a slow starter, they say. He also causes problems and has only been in uncompetitive leagues where one team always wins - and still messes it up! Sorry United fans but Moyes was and is the better choice. This will carry on all season before he "amicably" departs like has at every other club.

    Gerry, via text: Van Gaal should use the half-time team talk to introduce his players to each other.

    Dan, via text: Calm down, it was only a few seasons ago when United lost to Southend under Sir Alex's reign.

    MK Dons 1-0 Man Utd

    Manchester United

    It will be interesting to see what, if anything, Louis van Gaal does for the second half. As Steve Claridge says, the players look to be struggling playing 3-5-2 against an MK Dons side hungry for an upset. Both teams are just emerging for the second half now.

  115. GOAL

    Middlesbrough 1-0 Preston - Lee Tomlin (51 mins)

    A textbook set-piece from Lee Tomlin. He won the free-kick and dusted himself off to exact full punishment, whipping the ball over the wall and past Jamie Jones.

  116. GOAL

    Norwich 2-1 Crawley - Carlos Cuellar OG (55 mins)

    Cameron Jerome marked his Norwich debut with his side's first. Fellow debutant Carlos Cuellar gets the booby prize, slicing Conor Henderson's cross into his own net to hand Crawley a lifeline.

    Richard Berry: Van Gaal is a proven winner but if you look at his record he's a slower starter. We will be up there when the season ends.

    Jade Babb: How unimaginative and boring is this Man Utd side, yawn.

    Ricky Lee Everett: LVG will get it right in the end, but is this proof that Moyes wasn't given enough time? The players are letting the club down.

    Will Grigg celebrates his goal against Manchester United

    Walsall 0-3 Crystal Palace

    Watford go close when Ashley Grimes fires a shot against the inside of the post which then hits the back of the goalkeeper and runs to safety.

    MK Dons 1-0 Man Utd

    Just tuning in? The big news of the night is that Manchester United are trailing at League One MK Dons. The visitors have yet to register a single shot on target.

  120. GOAL

    Norwich 2-0 Crawley - Josh Murphy (49 mins)

    The Murphy twins have done a number on the Crawley defence. Jacob spreads play to Josh on the left wing and his brother cuts in before hitting a crisp drive into the top corner.

  121. GOAL

    Swindon 1-1 Brighton - Louis Thompson (46 mins)

  122. HALF-TIME

    MK Dons 1-0 Man Utd

    Steve Claridge

    BBC Sport at Stadium:mk

    "Manchester United have completely fallen into a hole for one reason or another. No-one looks comfortable out there and MK Dons has said 'hang on we have a chance here' and they have put pressure on Manchester United. There is only one team in it, let's us be honest. MK Dons are by far the better and fully deserve to be ahead.

    "The Manchester United players do not get this system. They have two wing-backs playing basically as part of a five-man defence. MK Dons have isolated the two players up front, Manchester United are all over the place."

  123. Post update

    MK Dons 1-0 Man Utd

    A few minutes until half-time and the MK Dons goal is not looking in any danger of being breached, Manchester United's lack of bite in attack summed up as Saidy Janko's low cross into the area is easily cut out.

    Michael Mabbit: Did Manchester United need to spend £60m on a world class winger... probably not. Do they need three reliable £20m defenders... definitely.

    Alan Fraser: It may not last, but David Moyes is not looking like quite such an idiot now is he?

    Chris Hunter: I think Man Utd need to buy the whole Dutch side to fit in the 3-5-2 system, they do have the money.

    Vicki Halsall: Never believed in the power of a manager in football until United lost Ferguson. Moyes must be thrilled.

    Craig Murray: As Brian Clough stated 'Players lose you games, not tactics.' Sums the last 12 months at United perfectly.

    Sushant Shetty: Manchester United need a psychologist more than a tactical coach. They are so weak mentally.

  126. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sheffield United

    Fairly comfortable first half for West Ham where Enner Valencia has had two decent chances for the home side. Ravel Morrison also impressing against the visitors from League One, but it's Diafra Sakho who has the only goal of the game so far.

    MK Dons 1-0 Man Utd

    A bit better from Manchester United as Nick Powell gets the ball from Javier Hernandez and drills an effort goalwards with the outside of his foot, but it whistles just wide of the post.

    "We accused David Moyes of this last season, forcing players into a system and we're getting the same here. The (Manchester United) players simply are comfortable in this system. It can change we know that but don't play this system.

    "MK Dons have settled into this and are putting the pressure on Manchester United are going long and give the ball away."

  130. Post update

    MK Dons 1-0 Man Utd

    How have Manchester United responded after falling behind? I'm sorry to say Manchester United fans, but not very well. Samir Carruthers prompts a huge "Oohh!" from the crowd as he cracks off a dipping shot than David De Gea gets behind.

  131. Post update

    MK Dons 1-0 Man Utd

    BBC Sport's Chris Osborne at Stadium:mk: "The MK Dons fans give a chorus of 'you're getting sacked in the morning'. It's aimed at Mr Van Gaal of course. I doubt the United boss sees the funny side."

    "Jonny Evans gave it away and Will Grigg pops it into an empty net. There's too many United players not doing their jobs - asking for defensive cover and they can't do their job themselves. Awful mistake. 1-0."

  135. GOAL

    West Ham 1-0 Sheffield United - Diafra Sakho (40 mins)

    Summer signing Diafra Sakho gets his first goal for the club after a patient passing move from the Hammers. Ravel Morrison starts it out on the right-hand side leaving Mo Diame to cross for Sakho to nod home.
