'Di Maria has handed in a transfer request' – Reaction to United's cup humiliation
Manchester United suffered one of the most humiliating defeats in their long and proud history as MK Dons piled yet more misery on Louis van Gaal.
Manager Louis van Gaal picked a relatively inexperienced team for the Capital one Cup tie , though with David De Gea in goals, Jonny Evans at the heart of the defence and Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck up front, the away side were heavily favoured to advance.
It was however to turn into a nightmare for the Red Devils, with defensive howlers and a brilliant performance from a team in the third-tier of English football making it a humbling night on the same day that United broke the British transfer record.
Here are some of the best tweets.
