Football: Manchester United lifts the League Cup after struggling to beat Southampton

Manchester United obviously were the favorite to win the EFL facing Southampton in the final at Wembley stadium. The game took an astonishing turn when Manolo Gabbiadini scored twice in three minutes - 45' and 48' time-mark canceling out Zlatan Ibrahimovich's and Jesse Lingard's goals and the struggle began for the Red Devils until 87th minute when Zlatan Ibrahimovich for the second time in the night found the back f the net - heading home a sublime cross from Manchester United's ever relevant defensive midfielder, Anders Herrera.

It's the first major cup for Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly... Henrikh Mkhitaryan missed the finals to a hamstring injury which he picked during Manchester United's  UEFA Europa League match away at AS Saint-Étienne, France.
