Honourable mentions for 3-1 against Arsenal with goals from Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard, as well as a masterclass between the sticks from David de Gea. Also the 2-0 win against Chelsea in April when we totally outplayed the champions elect and prevented them from having a single shot on target. Also the EFL Cup final win in February when we surrendered a 2-0 lead to be pegged back to 2-2 before Zlatan Ibrahimovic won it a few minutes from time.
But the winner is the Europa League final.
After a difficult season, where we had struggled to beat teams we had outplayed and sacrificed our position in the table for success in Europe, beating Ajax 2-0 was the best ending we could have hoped for.
It became apparent fairly early on that this was a game that United were going to win. Paul Pogba’s deflected effort put United 1-0 ahead with less than 20 minutes played. Minutes after restarting the second half, Henrikh Mkhitaryan made it 2-0.
Jose Mourinho employed perfect tactics to ensure victory. He limited the Dutch side to just three shots on target but all of them were fairly tame. After being called upon to pull off some great stops in previous rounds, Sergio Romero must have been pretty bored that evening in Stockholm.
At the final whistle, Mourinho and the players were delirious. It was fantastic to see. Not only had we won another trophy but we had qualified for the Champions League. It was a lesser trophy but nothing beats watching your players bounce around on the pitch on the back of a cup final win. Well in, lads.
