Erik ten Hag’s United re-building is in full effect, with Manchester United winning their first trophy in almost six years.

United down Newcastle by 2 goal to nil at Wembley to end an uncharacteristically long baron spell for the Premier League giants, and it came just seven months into {Erik Ten Hag} their new manager’s tenure.

There were all the performance of what’s made the ETH’s United so good, with new signed players excelling, and improved English players showing their best.

The two prolific assets combined in the 33rd minute when Luke Shaw guided in a perfect cross for Casemiro to head in, showing just how incredibly in form the former Real Madrid man has been.

However, many questioned his £60million signing, but he now has a record of 17 wins in 20 career finals, with three goals and an assist to prove them all wrong.

Newcastle on the other hand had started well, but the game was against them as soon as Casemiro found the net.

Just six minutes later it was two when Ten Hag again proved the doubters wrong as he watched his much-maligned emergency striker signing of Wout Weghorst provide the much needed assist for Rashford to breeze past Karius making it 2-0.

The result however leaves an expectant Newcastle heartbroken without a domestic trophy win in 68 years, nor silverware in any competition since 2007.

There are still plenty of signs the new-monied upstarts are on their way to the top, but 90 minutes at Wembley showed that United are one of a number of giants who will be blocking their path.
