With heavy hearts and minds, Manchester United defeated Ajax 2-0 in the 2017 Europa League Final in Stockholm, winning their first ever Europa League/UEFA Cup and qualifying for next season's Champions League.

United were largely on the defensive in the final half-hour but their lead was rarely under threat, as they became the fifth team to win the Champions League, Europa League and UEFA Super Cup and returned to Europe's top table in style.

United's triumph followed success in the League Cup and the Community Shield in Jose Mourinho's first season in charge at Old Trafford with Champions League football secured after United could only manage a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

"Three trophies in one season and the Champions League". There was no let-up in intensity, though, as José Mourinho's men sealed a pair of hat-tricks: three trophies for the season and the full set of UEFA knockout competition titles. "But the manager told us the only thing we could do was to win this for them".

It was United who settled quickest, Marcus Rashford causing some early problems for the young Ajax back line and Marouane Fellaini nearly reaching a fizzing cross from Juan Mata.

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool must solidify Champions League standing
Liverpool ended the season one point ahead of fifth-place Arsenal , thanks to the home victory over relegated Middlesbrough . When I left the club, it was the same thing.

José Mourinho's men joined their Dutch opponents and fans of both teams who packed the Friends Arena in Stockholm in paying tribute to all those who lost their lives in Monday night's explosion.

"I will ask UEFA and Federation Internationale de Football Association if they will not play any finals on this date", he said with a wry smile.

However, Ajax had the first real opportunity of the match as Younes danced past Ander Herrera before releasing Traore but the on loan Blues fan had his left foot shot saved by Sergio Romero in goal for United. A right-wing corner was headed down by Chris Smalling, and Mkhitaryan reacted quickest by hooking the ball high into the net from close range.

Ajax had no answer to the physical strength and power of United, especially in midfield, where world record signing Pogba and Belgian global Marouane Fellaini dominated. We had to focus, it was very important.

Looking to elevate some of that tension, United shot out of the blocks as with Pogba having an early effort on goal, then Juan Mata flashing a ball across goal for Marouane Felliani, but the Belgian was just unable to get a touch and poke home.
