Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson felt his side were in complete control of their Capital One Cup tie against Chelsea until the Blues levelled at the death and went on to seal the victory in extra-time.

Goals from Ryan Giggs, Javier Hernandez and Nani had seen United take the lead on three occasions only to see a David Luiz penalty, Gary Cahill header and last-gasp spot-kick from Eden Hazard peg them back each time. Daniel Sturridge and Ramires then struck in extra-time before Giggs scored from the penalty spot in the last minute as Chelsea ran out 5-4 winners.

"We gave the ball away for the third goal," he said. "We were in complete control of the game at that point, playing really good football and all we needed to do was see the game out, keep possession and Nani decided to try to beat a player and we ended up conceding a penalty kick."
