Louis Van Gaal said he was "not shocked" by United's abysmal capitulation against MK Dons in the Capital One Cup last night, as his team slumped to one of their most embarrassing defeats in over a decade.

It wasn't like this last time around. The last didn't fill me with the confidence I needed to go forward, it wasn't a walk in the park, there was no singing, dancing or shouting from the rooftops and to be honest, I just wasn't happy.
