Manchester United was stunned, and not in a good way.
Frank Lampard? The opposite kind of surprise after his Derby County went into Old Trafford and knocked Manchester United out of the League Cup in penalties following a 2-2 thriller.

“I’m shell shocked,” Lampard said. “What a performance. To go down early at Old Trafford and play as well as they did was superb. We had the personality to take penalties and play the way we did. I am a proud manager.”
United was ahead after three minutes thanks to Juan Mata, but Lampard’s Rams didn’t back down. They had more of the ball, more shots, and a 2-1 lead following goals from Harry Wilson and Jack Marriott.
Lampard said the night is a big one, and can be a significant mile marker for the club.
“I am trying to build a group to be successful and nights like this are incredible. To go against world-class players and play that way, it’s right up there.”
