Manchester United won the League Cup at Wembley on Sunday 26th February, giving Jose Mourinho a cup in his first season at Old Trafford. He is the first manager in the Red Devils history to win a major trophy in their first season in charge. The narrow victory over a very good Southampton side 3-2 is United's 42nd major trophy and guarantees them European football next season.
Manchester United after taking a 2-0 lead were pegged back to 2-2 by Southampton whoc scored either side of the half time break. But the EFL Cup was won only three minutes from the 90th minute with a headed goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. An enthralling final with five quality goals. Southampton may feel hard done by, but United prove that they have the never say die attitude and will always play until the final whistle.
