Manchester United and Aston Villa through to next round

6:52 pm on 2 December 2009

Manchester United have beaten Tottenham Hotspur 2-nil at a rain-drenched Old Trafford to claim their place in the English football League Cup semi-finals.

United's win also ended Tottenham's hopes of making their third successive League Cup final.

Aston Villa join United in the final four, coming from a goal down to beat Portsmouth 4-2 in their quarter-final.

The final two spots will be determined tomorrow when Manchester City host Arsenal, and Premier League leaders Chelsea travel to Blackburn Rovers.
