and so he does...

PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! MANCHESTER UNITED 2 - 1 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

That was a stunning game of football, and a richly deserved win for Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United team. 29th major domestic final for United - the most any English side has gotten to - and Wembley's still buzzing. 

That's all for me... Anirudh Menon signing off, thank you for reading!

Toodle-ooo!
...
97' Vorm hoicks it forwad, Fellaini wins the header.. Eriksen then chips the ball put of play. Jose Mourinho is FURIOUS with the ref for not blowing the whistle
...
96' Added time on added time now
...
95' Sanchez off, Fellaini on as De Gea prepares to take a goalkick. The Chilean gets a roaring, standing, ovation from the Reds. 
...
94' Wanyama smacks the ball into a crowd of players, Smalling gets it to Pogba - who hoicks it brilliantly forward for Lukaku... but Vorm does ever so well to charge forward and get to it ahead of the Belgian
...
93' Sanchez wins a throw in, and United take 30 seconds to even get ready to throw it in. 
...
92' OH RASHFORD! The Englishman is played one-on-two with Dier and Vorm after superb, superb hold-up play and pass from Lukaku... but Dier does well to keep up with him, and slide in front of him to stop the youngsters shot. Unusually hesitant from Rashford and that was a golden chance to kill the game
...
91' Vertonghen lifts a teasing ball into the box where Jones is on hand to smack it clear with that  big noggin' of his
...
90' Lamela lifts one into the box - where Davinson Sanchez is, don't ask me why, and he can only lift it into De Gea's arms. There's five minutes of stoppage time
...
89' Lamela pings it in, Wanyama looks at Young like he would a armchair, sits on him, and pumps it into row Z!
...
88' United have parked themselves at the edge of the box... Spurs look to play around him, and Sanchez takes Vertonghen down on the left. Lamela will look to lift one in. 
...
87' Pochettino takes off Son for Lamela.  Lucas Moura, who's weirdly playing through the middle, has a pop from forty yards - and it's nestling in row Z now
...
86' Anthony Taylor gives Marcus Rashford a yellow for avoiding a Davinson tackle... he sees it as a dive; THE YOUNG MAN DIDN'T EVEN ASK FOR A FOUL FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
...
85' The corner flashes across the box where Rashford keeps it for a bit, but is bullied off it by a combination of Trippier and Son
...
84' The tireless Sanchez charges down the right flank and wins a corner off Vertonghen. 
...
82' Another sub for United - no Wembley goal this time for Lingard as he takes him off for Marcus Rashford. 
...
81' Herrera plays Lingard down the line with a lovely ball... the Englishman then does superbly to win a foul off Dier. 
...
80' The captain limps off now to be replaced by Matteo Darmian - handing the band to Young.
...
79' OH! Valencia's gone down - that tackle with Alli took more out of him than we'd have thought! 
...
78' They take a short freekick... which Dier sends into orbit. 
...
76' United are sitting deeper and deeper now, and that's a risk... after intricate play around the United box, Son lifts it into the box where Kane is just beaten to it by Valencia. Spurs come roaring back... and Alli wins a foul off Valencia. Pochettino takes off the insipid Dembele for Victor Wanyama
...
75' Smalling sends an interesting looking header just high!
...
74' Jones steps into to reads lazily and stomps out with the ball. He plays it to Pogba, who sends Dembele to fetch a pail of water... before motoring forward. After a bit of playing it around a bit, Pogba has a pop which Vorm turns away for a corner. 
...
73' WOOF! Eriksen has a pop at goal, and it whistles so close to De Gea's left hand post that it knocks out his water bottles
...
72' UFF! This United on the counter! Pogba plays in Lukaku with a gorgeous ball that beseeches Lukaku to put in an extra burst of pace. The Belgian obliges, runs onto it, and smashes it straight at Vorm. 
...
71' Yellow for Ashley Young for time wasting as he dawdles over taking a freekick deep in his own half - United then throw it away by kicking the ball out for a goalkick. 
...
70' FORMATION UPDATE! Looks like it's still 4 at the back, with Dier slipping in to centre-back with Vertonghen at left-back
...
69' Sanchez is dragged back, for the 9854th time, and United are furious by this cyclical fouling of their no. 7; Dembele with an arm across the Chilean's face this time. 
...
68' Pochettino is shuffling it up now as he throws on Lucas Moura for Ben Davies... looks like he's shifting to three at he back. 
...
67' Alexis does so well to charge back and win the ball off Dembele, but Eriksen does equally well to win it back off Lingard... he then moves forward and looks to slip in Kane... but Herrera gets to it with a superb, superb slide. Box to box, indeed!  
...
64' OH LUKAKU! Pogba releases the Belgian with a peach of a ball with his left - the big man takes it under control and squares up Vertonghen before trying to catch out Vorm at the near post... but he drags his shot wide off the frame of the goal
...
WHAT A COUNTER! WOOF! The ball's hoicked forward where Lukaku bullies the ball into Sanchez's path... the Chilean wins the ball off Vertonghen in a fifty-fifty and he plays it back to the Belgian. His first touch is rubbish but straight at Lingard. The Englishman does brilliantly to notice Herrera's run and leave it for him. The Basque arrives at a rate of knots and absolutely leathers it in! Did I say WOOF!
...
62' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! ANDER HERRERAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
...
61' Eriksen looks to slip down the Spurs right again - but this time Pogba reads the Dane's run and follows him all the way through. Mourinho's bursting with pride isn't he?
...
60' Herrera nags Dembele all the way back to the edge of his own box; and the ref has had enough with this. Foul for Spurs and they'll look to build from the back again
...
59' Sanchez's delivery is ridiculously poor.
...
58' The corner comes to nothing, United counter through Pogba... who gallops forward with that absurdly languid stride of his - and wins a freekick off Vertonghen!
...
57' OH KANE! He gets played in by his mate Alli, takes a touch, squares up Smalling and smacks it at goal but the much maligned United man does superbly to get his considerable frame in the way and it bounces out for a corner
...
56' OH ERIKSEN! Again, he drifts behind Young with absurd ease - and whips in a lovely ball that misses Alli by this much!
...
55' Herrera explores the vastness of the United right flank, jogs all the way to the corner flag and cuts it back in - Lingard lashes it toward the six-yard box first time where Davinson is alert enough to hoick it clear. Spurs almost counter through Alli but Jones brilliantly cuts in in front of him and smashes the ball out of play
...
54' Young gets caught out again by a simple ball down the line, but Jones is alert to Eriksen's cut back this time. Lukaku then tries to push United forward by sheer force of - well, force - by Dier stops his charge with a superbly timed tackle
...
53' OH MY! Vertonghen pushes Lingard in the back - inside the six-yard box as the Mancunian tries to get himself at the end of a Sanchez chip in - but Taylor waves play and declines the option of going back to VAR to check it out
...
52' Young's who has had arguably the worst afternoon of all those in red, plays a ball straight back to Trippier; but the Englishman's ball into the box is well intercepted by Jones
...
51' Sanchez lifts it into the box... but Lukaku gets penalised for a push of some sort on his marker and that's that for that bit of play
...
50' Lingard, geed up by that, romps forward, runs a semicircle around the Spurs third and wins a cheap foul off Vertonghen
...
49' Dele Alli gets a mention in the ref's naughty book as he steps on Lingard's heel. Ugly, that, and a deserved yellow
...
48' After some concentrated Spurs pressure, Young looks to put Pogba clear on the charge but his ball out of the back is rubbish. 
...
47' OH! Trippier tries a header back to his goalie - it's woeful, and Sanchez latches on to it, but loses footing just as he looks to charge clear of the Spurs man and into the box
...
46' ... and immediately give up possession as Kane gets caught offside
...
PEEP! WE ARE OFF AGAIN! Spurs kick off...
