FA Cup shock exit for Man Utd

Ricky finds out how Manchester United were knocked out of the cup

Manchester United have been dumped out of the FA Cup in the third round by Leeds United.

Jermaine Beckford scored the winner for Leeds in the 19th minute. The game ended 1-0, giving the club its first victory at Old Trafford since 1981.

"It's an unbelievable, tremendous result - it's been a long time coming," Leeds captain Richard Naylor said.

Its the first time in 26 years United have been knocked out at this stage and by a team from a lower division.

In other FA Cup matches, Chelsea thrashed Watford 5-0, with Daniel Sturridge scoring two of the goals for the Blues.


Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers ended in a 1-1 draw, which means there will be a replay.
