The result means Erik ten Hag’s side have reached their second domestic final of the season, having won the Carabao Cup in February.

For only a third time in the club’s history, Manchester United have reached the final of both the League Cup and FA Cup in the same season, also doing so in 1982-83 and 1993-94.

Mamchester City, who beat Sheffield United 3-0 in the other semi-final on Saturday, are also on the verge of claiming a Treble, as they are close to a Premier League triumph as well as the Champions League.
