There would be no cup shock or giant killing this time as United handily dispatched Simon Grayson’s Leeds side in the Carling Cup.

In our first visit to Elland Road in 8 years, United took the lead on the 14th minute and despite some patches of resistance we never looked back.

Owen handed us the lead when his effort trickled over the line but if his first effort was scruffy his second was sublime as a shot from the edge of the box arrowed past Andy Lonergan on the 32nd minute.

Giggs killed the game off on the stroke of half time as he nutmegged White breaking into the box and saw his outside of the foot shot deflect in.

There were debuts for Zeki Fryers, Paul Pogba and Larnell Cole tonight to round off a what was a good night for United.
