Deadly duo up for the cup

Deadly duo up for the cup

On this day in 1994, Villa won the League Cup for the fourth time, beating Manchester United 3-1 in the final at Wembley.

United were hot favourites but Dalian Atkinson and Dean Saunders established a two-goal lead for Ron Atkinson’s side. Mark Hughes reduced the deficit but Saunders blasted home a late penalty to complete a magnificent Villa triumph.
