Offside?! Man Utd let off with disallowed Southampton goal

Manchester United travels south to Wembley Stadium for the EFL Cup final against Claude Puel's Southampton.

Ibrahimovic moved to Manchester United in a free transfer from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.

He also scored the victor in the EFL Cup game against Man City, as well as the semi-final victory against Hull. "So we will wait, we will believe that he is going to stay one more season".

Ibrahimovic collected the 32nd trophy of his career after netting an 87th minute victor at Wembley, having given his side the lead with a brilliant free-kick.

A brace from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, either side of Jesse Lingard's tidy finish shortly before half-time, saw The Red Devils fend off a stylish Saints side who were inspired by Manolo Gabbiadini's double.

It was Mourinho's main man, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who, perhaps somewhat predictably, proved to be the match victor. But if needed, the fans can go to the door of his house and stay there all night.

"I know the last time Southampton won a cup was in 1976 against Manchester". I know the potential.

Mourinho allegedly sees Neymar as a ideal fit at Man United, especially with the team's over-reliance on Zlatan Ibrahimovic for goals this season.

"Him (Mkhitaryan) and Michael I think they are both out but this is based on my experience not on my medical knowledge and not based on tests and what they have to do tomorrow. I don't take him here if he doesn't want to come, if he's not ready". It is not my credit.

The Brazilian was pictured in London recently after a hard week in Barcelona - which featured an unconvincing win at home to Leganes following a Champions League thrashing at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain. I try to win a major trophy at every club, so to win with Manchester United is a relief.

"I have so many good things in my career", he said Friday, "that I wouldn't be influenced by a little detail".

"A hammering by Chelsea was especially chastening for Mourinho, who suffered taunts of "You're not special anymore" from his old club's supporters".

He won the League Cup in his first season with Chelsea in 2004-05, and went on to capture the Premier League a few months later. "I think he did, in the right moment, in the best moment, he did his declaration, his statement". I predicted what I would do. "I can understand the good atmosphere around the team and the fans, but it's important for us to keep focused and with a good concentration about the game".
