Carabao Cup: Derby County dump Manchester United out, Man City hammer Oxford

The 25-year-old World Cup victor tried to force through a transfer to Barcelona days before the window closed but United chiefs were unwilling to sell their prized asset.

Derby came from behind to lead thanks to a brilliant long-range free-kick from Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson, with Jack Marriott nodding the Rams ahead.

However, the French World Cup winner's latest outspoken comments criticising United's overly negative tactics after a 1-1 draw at home to newly-promoted Wolves on Saturday have provoked a reaction from Mourinho.

The "five times" celebration is referencing how many times Liverpool have won the Champions League.

Woodward was joined on the 25-minute call by group managing director Richard Arnold and two other senior executives to run through everything from new sponsorship deals - seven in total - to social media footprint (United have more followers on Facebook than the National Basketball Association, the NFL, NHL and Major League Baseball combined).

Things got more hard for United when Romero was dismissed for handball outside his area and Derby capitalised through Jack Marriott, but Fellaini forced a shootout with a last-gasp equaliser.

But in the fifth minute of added time, substitute Fellaini headed in a Diogo Dalot cross to force the shootout.

Pogba caused controversy after the opening-day win over Leicester by suggesting he would be fined if he said what he wanted about his situation at United.

"The only truth is that I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore", Mourinho told Sky Sports News. Then there were a few more mistakes and not a lot of movement in front because we didn't really put them in trouble. "The players were happy with that decision and the reasons behind the manager's decision".

Derby County celebrate victory.

The 8-7 penalty reverse after a 2-2 draw in weird circumstances after Sergio Romero was sent off midway through the second half seemed entirely fitting on a day when the deteriorating relationship between the manager and his most expensive signing hit a new low.

The Manchester United manager welcomed his former Chelsea FC vice captain Frank Lampard and his Derby side to Old Trafford in the League Cup third round at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

The England Under-19 global was involved in the opening two goals, scored by Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez, before sealing the win with his first senior goal.

Fulham's strength in depth was in evidence as they swept aside Championship Millwall 3-1 at The Den despite making 10 changes.
