United win the Carling Cup

Wayne Rooney celebrates

Manchester United have won the League Cup final, keeping the trophy, after beating Aston Villa 2-1 at Wembley.

Villa took the lead through James Milner's early penalty after Nemanja Vidic fouled Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Michael Owen equalised in the first half, but it was substitute Wayne Rooney who scored United's winning goal with a second half header.

Rooney said: "It's a great feeling to play in a final at Wembley and score the winning goal."
