The Saints had not conceded a single goal in the competition going in to the final but the Red Devils scored three past them to win the silverware.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring for the Old Trafford club in the 19th minute. 19 minutes later, Jesse Lingard doubled the advantage and United were cruising.
However, Puel’s men bounced back in style. Manolo Gabbiadini scored right before half time to get the Saints back into the game. He added another three minutes into the second half to level the tie.
