The Manchester United duo are graduates of the club's academy system and, having been reunited last summer, are delighted to be on the trophy trail

Back in 2012, the chances of Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba toasting cup final success as Manchester United team-mates appeared slim.

While Pogba took the decision to head for Juventus at the end of his contract, Lingard was sent out on loan to then Championship outfit Leicester City.

The stars have, however, realigned for two products of the Red Devils’ famed academy system.

A record-breaking transfer brought Pogba back to Old Trafford last summer, while Lingard has enjoyed a stunning rise to prominence since stepping out of the shadows.

On Sunday, the pair played crucial roles as United secured EFL Cup glory over Southampton at Wembley.

Having tasted FA Youth Cup glory together in 2011, some six years on the pair are now helping to deliver senior success at Old Trafford.

Lingard was among the goals in a dramatic 3-2 victory over the Saints, with his first-half effort extending a remarkable scoring record at Wembley – having previously netted in the 2016 FA Cup final and Community Shield.

Midfield partners once again, Pogba and Lingard have seen their bromance rekindled and will be hoping that there are further moments to savour this season in the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.
