The Red Devils celebrated on the pitch at Wembley after winning the League Cup for a sixth time, ending a six year spell without a trophy.

Man of the match

Manchester United fans picked the man of the match via a vote on the club website and app, and there was a clear winner.

Casemiro netted United’s opener with a header and was outstanding throughout the game. He gives the team an assurance at both ends of the pitch, with his experience vital.

The Brazilian has been a major contributor ever since he joined from Real Madrid in the summer.

He looks hungry to take on this fresh challenge, and plays in the defensive midfield position where the club had been crying out for reinforcements, and he was well worth the wait.
