The Red Devils victory in Sunday’s EFL Cup final meant that they have now overtaken Liverpool in the standings for silverware.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic struck twice at Wembley, either side of a Jesse Lingard goal, delivering the Old Trafford club’s fifth League Cup trophy as a result.

The Reds have won 18 top-flight titles, seven FA Cups, eight League Cups, five European cups and three UEFA Cups.
Liverpool have so far reached two cup finals under the guidance of manager Jurgen Klopp, the 2016 League Cup against Manchester City and the 2016 Europa League final against Sevilla, eventually losing both.
