Pogba and Mkhitaryan seal emotional Europa League triumph for Manchester United
Manchester United won the Europa League for the first time in their history thanks to a 2-0 victory over Ajax in Thursday morning's (AEST) final in Stockholm.

The build-up to the match was overshadowed by the terror attack at Manchester Arena on Monday, which resulted in the deaths of 22 people, including children.

Manchester held a vigil in Albert Square on Tuesday in honour of the victims and in defiance of the perpertrators, while a minute's silence was held before the start of Wednesday's match at Friends Arena in Stockholm.

City and United both posted tributes in the aftermath of the bomb attack and Pep Guardiola's side put their fierce rivalry aside with another classy post shortly after full-time.

The hashtag #ACityUnited, which has been circulating on social media for much of the last 24 hours, was posted via City's official Twitter account moments after the final whistle, the text composed of City's sky blue and the red of their rivals.
