Manchester United’s canter of a victory in the opening leg made this an easy night. That was the theory and so the practice proved: Nottingham Forest were dominated and by the final whistle Erik ten Hag’s men victorious – courtesy of late Anthony Martial and Fred finishes – and had booked a Wembley date with Newcastle.
The final will be the same as the FA Cup showpiece of 1999 which United claimed, and is a chance to end a trophy-drought that stretches back six years to when José Mourinho’s vintage won the Europa League against Ajax in Stockholm.
