United pulled off a memorable victory at Wembley after an underwhelming season in the Premier League under Erik ten Hag.

Following an eighth-place finish, not many gave the Red Devils much of a chance heading into Saturday’s final. But Ten Hag’s men were by far the better side over the course of the 90 minutes and deservedly headed into the break with a 2-0 lead.

Goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo put United in a commanding position at halftime.

A late consolation goal from Jeremy Doku set up a nervy finale and understandably, United’s players and supporters were counting down the minutes towards the end of the game.

And Lisandro Martinez’s efforts to take a few seconds off the clock before Doku’s goal left Kyle Walker annoyed.

Martinez’s return to action came at an ideal time for United given Ten Hag’s struggles with options at centre-back.

Harry Maguire was ruled out of the final with an injury and Martinez returned to the starting XI alongside
Raphael Varane.

Following a lengthy lay-off due to injuries, Martinez was replaced in the 73rd minute at Wembley after putting in a commanding display at centre-back.

But as United looked to run down the clock, the Argentine was in no rush to leave the pitch, which annoyed Walker.

According to BBC Sport’s Simon Stone, the City star was frustrated with Martinez taking the long route to the touchline when he made his way off the pitch.

“It is not surprising given the number of players who have been injured but Manchester United are starting to look tired,” the journalist wrote.

“Marcus Rashford and Lisandro Martinez have gone off. Martinez annoyed Kyle Walker by taking the long route to the touchline.”

Martinez and Varane have proven to be an effective partnership for United under Ten Hag.

The duo were key to their side’s success at Wembley on Saturday, with United’s gameplan to limit City in the final third working perfectly.
