Romelu Lukaku proved he can be the man for the big occasion with a powerful display against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

The Belgian striker finally got his first goal for United against top-six opponents in England and then set up Jesse Lingard’s winner against his old club Chelsea.

Manchester City secured their first trophy under Pep Guardiola with a 3-0 win over Arsenal in the League Cup final at Wembley.

Captain Vincent Kompany scored the second of City's goals, a fitting reward for a commanding display at the heart of City's defence.

Mohamed Salah matched Luis Suarez's 31 goals in a season for Liverpool with another strike in the 4-1 victory over West Ham United, while Brighton's Glenn Murray reached 10 for the campaign with a double in the rout of Swansea City.
