Manchester United fans disappointed with team performance vs Derby

Manchester United fans were far from happy following the penalty shootout loss to Derby at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup.

Though the competition may not have as much prestige as other cups, supporters were still disappointed having been knocked out by a Championship club.

United may have even been lucky to have had matters taken into a penalty shootout after having their 1-0 lead overturned by a fierce away side.

Sergio Romero got sent off in the second half for handling the ball outside of the box but the players managed to equalise through Marouane Fellaini.

There was hope following that moment but it wasn’t enough to see the Red Devils advance in what could prove to be their only winnable trophy.

The defeat isn’t the only issue as it’s the manner of the defeat with Manchester United failing to press on after Juan Mata grabbed an early goal for the team.

Jose Mourinho’s men were expected to press on and kill the game but it was Derby who grew into the match, scoring twice to put the pressure on the home side.

In isolation it’s not a big deal to be knocked out in the Carabao Cup but there’s no doubting United didn’t fight for the result and had enough good quality players on paper to win comfortably.
