Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has already turned his attention to winning more trophies this season following his team’s EFL Cup final

The former Real Madrid coach saw his side pushed all the way by Southampton but they eventually secured a 3-2 win at Wembley on Sunday.

Goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jesse Lingard had put United in control but Manolo Gabbiadini’s double either side of half-time gave the Saints a lifeline.

The game appeared to be heading for extra-time but Ibrahimovic proved his class as he headed home in the 87th minute.

Mourinho admitted after the game that playing under pressure was hard for his side but he has now turned his attention to the FA Cup and Europa League.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s not easy to win titles, and so many times.

It’s not easy to cope with that pressure that I put myself under in my career. It was a game in which I was feeling the difficulty.

“I want to give Southampton the credit they deserve. We have the cup but we should be now playing extra-time.

“For the development of the team there is nothing better than the feeling of trophies.

Now we have Bournemouth in the Premier League, Rostov in the Europa League and Chelsea in the FA Cup, so we have so much to play.”

United will take on Chelsea on March 13 and the Red Devils are priced at 7.00 to go all the way and win the competition.
