Darron Gibson was the unlikely hero as holders Manchester United clinched a place in the semi-finals of the Carling Cup thanks to a 2-0 win over Tottenham.

The 22-year-old midfielder scored both goals in a re-run of last season's final as Tottenham again finished second best.

Gibson, making a rare start, showed marvellous composure with both efforts in the 17th and 38th minutes to put United firmly in control.
