Manchester United won the English League Cup 2017 by downing Southampton in a thrilling 3-2 victory at Wembley. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, once again displayed his class by scoring twice in the final.

Jose Mourinho delivered the first cup for United in his first season as manager. With his fourth League Cup triumph, he now joins Sir Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough as the most successful manager in the competition.

United were cruising with a 2-0 lead before Southampton striker Manolo Gabbiadini's brace either side of halftime breathed life into the showpiece match.

It looked like the match will head into extra-time, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic thumped a header in 87th minute to win the match for Manchester United.

Mourinho praised the big Swede by saying, ""He won the game for us. He was outstanding. He made the difference and he gave us the cup."

Congratulations to Man United. As a Red Devil fan, I hope 2017 gives us more chances to win trophies.

Glory Glory Man United!
