Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads Man Utd to EFL Cup title, but other stars must step up

Paul Mariner and Sebastian Salazar discuss Man United's capture of the EFL Cup trophy, and if Southampton deserved more.

LONDON -- He may have been playing to the gallery by living up to his egotistical, self-centred reputation, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a point with his response when asked whether he thinks Manchester United are on the verge of "something special" after their dramatic EFL Cup final victory over Southampton on Sunday.

"I came," Ibrahimovic said. "That is special."

The Swedish centre-forward scored two goals in United's 3-2 win at Wembley, one of the classic finals since the stadium reopened in...

LONDON -- Three thoughts from Manchester United's 3-2 victory over Southampton at Wembley Stadium, which sees Jose Mourinho's side lift the EFL Cup trophy.

1. Manchester United win the EFL Cup

Where would Manchester United be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic? It's a question that, when this season as a whole is considered, might be tough to answer. But on this occasion, they would be without the EFL Cup, won in a thrilling encounter against an excellent Southampton side at Wembley.

EFL Cup final tale of the tape: Man Utd have the edge over Southampton

The Boys from Exploding Heads are here to assure you that the League Cup final is definitely not pointless.

The last time Manchester United faced Southampton in a Wembley showpiece was 1976's FA Cup final, a sun-drenched May afternoon won by a Bobby Stokes goal that United fans of a certain age swear to this day was offside. That was Southampton's last (and indeed only) major trophy and it was won as a second division club. United, for their part, had been in that division the previous season, a club in the doldrums after their glories in the 1950s and 1960s.

Claude Puel, Southampton capable of an EFL Cup final shock vs. Man Utd

The Boys from Exploding Heads are here to assure you that the League Cup final is definitely not pointless.

Antonio Conte has rightly been applauded for bringing Chelsea out of their post-Jose Mourinho slumber and turning them into champions-in-waiting with a minimum of fuss. But if Claude Puel stops Mourinho from getting his hands on his first trophy as Manchester United boss in Sunday's EFL Cup final, he should be named manager of the year ahead of Conte.

Despite the sales of key trio Sadio Mane, Graziano Pelle and Victor Wanyama in the summer, Puel has already made history in his maiden season on...

Manchester United will make their fourth trip to Wembley in 10 months on Sunday when they face Southampton in the League Cup final.

If United win, Jose Mourinho will become the first manager at the club to win a trophy in his first season, although he's claimed this isn't what motivates him. During Friday's news conference, he claimed individual plaudits drove him on in the beginning of his career, but now he's a "club man". He recognises that silverware for the club is more important than another...

Beginning of the end for Rooney?

There has been much talk this week about Wayne Rooney's future, with speculation that he could depart for the Chinese Super League as soon as Tuesday. But it seems as if United's record goal scorer will delay his decision until the end of the season, despite not receiving the most stirring of testimonials from Jose Mourinho.

"You'll have to ask him," said...
