FOOTIE TWEETS: Man Utd and Man City rejoice in cup, Tottenham to unite as Bayern get set for Raja Casablanca
After facing criticism for instances of diving and poor form on the field, Ashley Young hit back at his doubters by delivering a stunning second-half goal as Manchester United prevailed in their Capital One Cup quarter-final clash against Stoke City.
Very happy with my goal but the main thing was to get into the next round. Great goal by Pat, definitely a right foot swinger!!! Ha!!— Ashley Young (@youngy18) December 18, 2013
Unlucky for Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic who had the difficult challenge of keeping out the Red Devils.
Tough loss for the team tonight. We had a decent run, we move on to the next game. #potternation— Asmir Begovic (@asmir1) December 18, 2013
It's been a tough week for Tottenham and their misfortunate extended beyond Andre Villas-Boas' reign as Spurs went down 2-1 to West Ham at home in the Capital One Cup. Stand-in skipper Kyle Walker reminds his teammates that this is a time of unity.
Proud to lead the team out but disappointed about the result. We all need to stick together cause there's light at the end of the tunnel— Kyle Walker (@kylewalker2) December 18, 2013
