These were the best jokes from a thrilling EFL Cup final that saw Manchester United overcome a Southampton fightback to win 3-2 at Wembley on Sunday.

Zlatan Ibrahimović scored an 87th minute winner to secure the trophy for manager José Mourinho, who has now triumphed in the league cup competition a record-equalling four times.

Perhaps the better side and, with a goal seemingly incorrectly ruled out for offside, the losers may feel a little hard done by as Manolo Gabbiadini spearheaded their assault on United’s lead with goals either side of half-time.

Almost as it happened, here are the best of the jokes from the EFL Cup final as Man Utd beat Southampton 3-2:

Hi @SkyFootball, there's a problem with our TV. Can't seem to get the normal commentary on and all we're able to hear is MUTV? #EFLCupFinal

Just text Wayne Rooney to ask how he feels about Mourinho bringing Fellaini on instead of him. He's not replied yet.
