United win Carling Cup

2009-03-01 19:48

London - Manchester United won the English League Cup on penalties against Tottenham Hotspur after the Wembley showpiece had ended 0-0 after extra time on Sunday.

Anderson struck the winning penalty for United after Jamie O'Hara and Darren Bentley had both missed for holders Spurs.

Chances were few and far between in the regulation 90 minutes and extra time with Aaron Lennon forcing a good save from United goalkeeper Ben Foster and Cristiano Ronaldo hitting the post in stoppage time.

Victory kept Premiership leaders United on course for five trophies this season.

    Congrats boys on a magnificent run that I believe now will only end with the Campions League trophy win in Rome. League title is in the bag. FA Cup a mere formality. Your'e a master Sir Alex.

    With the Big 5 in their sights now - this could be one of the finest years in this illustrious club's history. Spurs performed well on the day but were just not good enough against the Red Devil's. Always disappointing for a game to go to a penalty decider but just no other way of bringing a result when teams are so deadlocked.
