Frank Lampard's Derby County Knock Manchester United Out Of League Cup, Manchester City Ease Into Last 16

Derby County manager Frank Lampard piled more misery on his former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho as the Rams beat 10-man Manchester United 8-7 on penalties, while Manchester City cruised into the last 16 of the League Cup on Tuesday. Mourinho paid the price for making nine changes in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Old Trafford before spot-kicks with Paul Pogba rested on another day dominated by the Frenchman's frosty relationship with his manager.
Phil Jones finally missed from the spot after 15 successful penalties in a high-quality shootout.
"The penalties come, somebody has to miss. I knew we were going to be in trouble with Jones," said Mourinho in a barb at one of his own players.
Mourinho also confirmed Pogba has been stripped of the United vice-captaincy after criticising the Portuguese's tactics in a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves on Saturday.
"The only truth is I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore," added Mourinho.
Early on it seemed like the United boss would get a positive response from his much-changed side as one of Lampard's former Chelsea team-mates Juan Mata slotted home the opener after just three minutes at the end of a fine team move.
