Man Utd were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by a strong Chelsea side after a brilliant game of football. It finished 5-4 after Extra Time with United seconds away from winning in the 90 minutes.
United used this game as a chance to give their squad and few youngsters valuable minutes and they did themselves proud. Whilst Chelsea finished with the likes of Hazard and Oscar, United ended with a spine of Wotton, Keane, Tunnicliffe and Powell. They all put in great shifts and would have learnt vital lessons from the game.
Just like the League fixture a few days back, it was a pulsating tie with lots of great moments. Here are my top 5 GIFs
1. Nani Chest Pass
As you all know by now, we love a chest pass and we are usually very lucky to get one each week. This time it was Nani who passes a drilled pass off with his chest.
2. Anderson skill
Highlight of the game and no doubt GIF of the month contender. Anderson with a delightful little chip over Mikels head before spinning around and passing it on the volley to continue the United attack. Class.
3. Danny Welbeck skill & Darren Fletcher play
You are always going to get one moment of beautiful skill when Danny Welbeck is playing and he didnt disappoint. Here he flicks the ball over the defenders head before playing a stunning little backheel pass to Darren Fletcher who then shows off some brilliant footwork to get away from the Chelsea midfield.
4. Ryan Giggs backheel
It was great to see Giggs have a good performance after some shaky ones this season. He had a solid game throughout and put many of the other lads to shame with his fitness. He features here for this cheeky little backheel pass.
5. Nani skill
Frustrating for much of the game, he is always capable of that moment of magic. Here he uses his skill to flick the ball over the Chelsea player before bursting past another and playing the ball into midfield for United to attack. Moments after this, he received the ball on the edge of the box and did this.
