“This was a proper game of football with fans, with some tackles, yellow cards, chances at both ends. So I enjoyed it.”
United captain Harry Maguire was impressed with his side’s performance and says it is important they end their near four-year wait for silverware this season.
Maguire told Sky Sports: “It was an excellent performance and we should have been out of sight, we had three or four great chances. We need to be more clinical.
“Edinson Cavani’s finish was excellent on his weak foot too. He’s had an injury but it’s good to have him back, he’s been a top striker throughout his career.
“We are expected to win trophies. It’s important to reach these big games but we have to start winning them and lift some trophies for this club.
