Milton Keynes Dons 4 Man­chester Uni­ted 0, Sta­dium MK, Eng­lish Foot­ball Lea­gue Cup Sec­ond Ro­und, Au­gust 26, 2014. Stri­kers Will Grigg and Benik Afobe re­gistered two goals each for Lea­gue One club Milton Keynes Dons as Louis van Gaal´s Man­chester Uni­ted si­de suf­fered a heavy 4-0 de­feat at Sta­dium MK in the sec­ond ro­und of the Foot­ball Lea­gue Cup.

Man­chester Uni­ted and Spain goal­keeper Da­vid de Gea con­ceded four goals ag­ainst Milton Keynes Dons in a mat­ch which was the fir­st ever meet­ing be­tween the two te­ams. The Pre­mier Lea­gue club were a goal down at the break and the vis­it­ing si­de ev­entually lost the ga­me by four goals to nil. North­ern Ire­land in­ter­na­tion­al Will Grigg, who was on loan from Brent­ford, opened the scor­ing ac­count for The Dons as the twenty-three-year-old stri­ker took full ad­vant­age of a mis­take by fel­low coun­try­man Jon­ny Evans to sweep the ball bey­ond the out­stretched arm of De Gea and in­to the net from in­side the area five min­utes be­fore the ha­lf-hour ma­rk. Spurred on by their sup­port­ers, Milton Keynes kept push­ing for­ward af­ter the re­start and Grigg sco­red ag­ain when he ches­ted a Ben Reeves cross pa­st De Gea and in­to the bot­tom left-hand cor­ner of the net three min­utes pa­st the hour ma­rk. Then, five min­utes la­ter, Sta­dium MK boss Karl Robin­son de­cided to re­place Grigg wi­th Ar­senal loanee Benik Afobe, who went on to add a third goal for the hosts when he power­ed ho­me an un­stoppable low ef­fort on sev­enty min­utes. And wi­th six min­utes left on the referee´s clock, Afobe fin­ished the scor­ing spree for Milton Keynes wi­th wi­th a fierce shot from in­side the box that left De Gea wi­th no chan­ce to save.
