Ian Wright: Zlatan Ibrahimovic is carrying Manchester United this season

Ibrahimovic put his side ahead with an impressive free-kick in the 19th minute of the match before Jesse Lingard doubled their lead by finding the bottom right corner in the 38th minute. When we got ourselves back in the game, we thought we might go on and win in it. The brace in the EFL Cup final including the victor to pick up his first trophy in England, came as a cherry on top.

"Let's see what happens", Ibrahimovic told FourFourTwo.

"I regret that Zlatan Ibrahimovic never joined Arsenal", Keown wrote in his Daily Mail column. I always said that before he came to United.

"I got a call from Jose Mourinho - I might have a good relationship with him - and, when he called, that's the reason I came. Then my kids started to bump my head and José called, then I am here" - but that they would not influence his decision on whether to stay. "I think so. I am still doing what I have been doing every year but some people won't accept it or admit it because I don't do it in their home ground", he said.

'We will all enjoy it, but we all knew the importance of winning this and we are in so many other competitions as well'. "The reality is that we want more: my contract is long, I have two more years with this one, so hopefully I can win more", Mourinho said.

Ibrahimovic says it is "special" to be confounding his doubters in England and was loquacious when it came to his fitness level.

"I think [Mourinho] plays more attacking football than he used to play and he tries to understand the expectation all the time [at United]", Cantona added.

"Jose Mourinho needs to look at how he replaces that personality and that character at some point in the next 18 months because he's unbelievable at what he's doing at that club at the moment". I talk before and I do it, that's the big difference. "In that way we hope United will win at the weekend and one of the biggest clubs wins the FA Cup, because then it's possible seventh in the table can play a qualification for the Europa League".

"I'm hungry to do more".
