Having ended the season eighth in the Premier League, United’s lowest-ever position in the top flight, Ten Hag and his players are eager to take some silverware from Wembley.

Discussing Man Utd’s season overall, he continued: “Put injuries aside, the performances of the team have been so bad. Most teams have had injuries, maybe not to the same extent as Man United.

“I keep saying this, I sound like a broken record: performance level can drop but your style of football should be there to identify. It’s not.
