Aston Villa 1-2 Man Utd (Carling Cup Final 2010) – Video Highlights

Red-hot Wayne Rooney came off the bench to settle the Carling Cup final as Manchester United beat Aston Villa 2-1 at Wembley.

Rooney, on as a 42nd minute substitute for Michael Owen, headed home in the 74th minute to ensure last year’s winners retained the trophy – the first time United have successfully defended a cup competition.

James Milner gave Villa an early lead from the penalty spot only for Owen, who started the game in place of Rooney, to level things up on 13 minutes with a classic strike.

But inevitably it was Rooney who grabbed the headlines, the England striker continuing his recent electric form with his 12th goal in nine games.
