Were Southampton robbed in the League Cup final?

Manchester United were last night crowned triumphant League Cup champions after eventually seeing off a determined Southampton side in the final. The Red Devils won by three goals to two in the end, largely off the back of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s tireless efforts in front of goal.

 

Yet as Southampton’s Manolo Gabbiadini was nonetheless denied his hat-trick after seeing a legitimate effort cancelled out by the linesman’s flag early in the first-half, subsequent question-marks have arisen in light of the clear mistake on behalf of the officials.

The instant-replays show Gabbiadini’s goal to have been onside all along…

 

 

…but even though Saints fans do indeed have a lot to shout about after the final whistle…

 

 

…stopping Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his tracks is a task much easier said than done…

 

 

This isn’t the first time English officiating has come under the spotlight in recent weeks…

 

 

…yet as Manchester United were pretty good themselves on the day…

 

 

…perhaps Southampton were just a tad unlucky when all is said and done…

 

 

Then again, things could have been oh so different…

 

 

…oh so different indeed…
