man-utd-win-carling-cup Missed penalties from Jamie O’Hara and David Bentley handed Manchester United the Carling Cup in a 4-1 shootout win.

Ferguson made good on his promise to stick with the players who helped United reach the final, as Danny Welbeck, Darron Gibson and Ben Foster also started.Wayne Rooney would also have started had he not been struck down by a virus.

Tottenham’s Jonathan Woodgate, who scored the winner in last year’s final against Chelsea, also missed out because of an Achilles injury. Roman Pavyluchenko and Darren Bent both played up front, albeit only in the loosest sense of the word. The Russian, in particular, was woeful and Harry Redknapp hauled him off just after the hour mark.

United started faster, with Ronaldo keen to make his presence felt. The world player of the year smashed an early free-kick just over, before bringing a save from Heurelho Gomes in the Tottenham goal

Rio Ferdinand went closest in the first half of normal time when his volley went over the bar, while Ben Foster denied the impressive Aaron Lennon.
Wembley stood still, but the ball came back off the inside of the right-hand post and Nani sent the rebound wide.

The extra half-hour produced few moments of quality, with both sides sapped of energy. Only Bent’s shot at Foster troubled either keeper and penalties duly followed
While Darren Bent and Anderson traded chances before the final went to a penalty shootout
