Dons Humiliate Man United In League Cup

Manchester United’s early season problems were compounded by a humiliating 4-0 loss to third-tier Milton Keynes Dons in the League Cup second round on Tuesday leaving new manager Louis van Gaal still looking for his first win.
MK Dons’ Will Grigg and substitute Benik Afobe scored two goals apiece as United’s defensive frailties were ruthlessly exposed by their enthusiastic lower division opponents at Stadium MK.
Grigg capitalised on United’s mistakes to score either side of halftime before Afobe compounded the visitors’ misery with two late goals, the first seconds after coming off the bench.
Dutchman Van Gaal is still without a competitive victory since taking over at United in the close season and he will be desperate for British record signing Angel Di Maria to play after he signed from Real Madrid earlier on Tuesday.
“It’s a matter of making errors at wrong moments,” Van Gaal told Sky Sports. “When you see the goals against us, I believe they were big errors that you cannot make.
“Then it was 2-0 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 3-0 and 4-0.”
