Leeds Put Man United Out of the FA Cup

League One Leeds have put Man Utd out of the FA Cup in the third round tie played today at Old Trafford. Jermaine Beckford scored the winner on 19 mintues, getting on the end of a long pass from Jonny Howson and away from Wes Brown to guide the ball across the face of the goal from left to right and into the far corner. Whilst Owen and Rooney had their chances, Man United sorely missed their regular back four, with Evra, Ferdinand, Vidic and O'Shea out of the side, as well as goalkeeper Van der Sar. The United defence did not defend as a unit, and with Leeds keeping up the pressure in the second half, it was the League One side that went through.
