"I always thought we'd go on and win it," said Man United coach David Moyes. "What we've got here is the capability and I don't think there would have been one supporter who thought that the game was over (when we went two down), I certainly didn't."

Rooney assisted on Chris Smalling's header to pull Man United within one and James Chester, who had scored Hull City's first, hit an own goal for the decider.
