Joining Jurgen Klopp in an illustrious group of only two managers to have outsmarted the Catalan three times in one campaign, the smile could not be wiped from the Norwegian’s face. And who could blame him?

It wasn’t that long ago fans were calling for the treble winner to be sacked as United struggled in the league but now, after a 10-game unbeaten run which has seen them close the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea to just three points, things are looking up in M16 and the euphoria from Sunday afternoon’s 2-0 win will linger.
