Manchester United defeated Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley to win their first trophy since 2017. After two goals in the first six minutes of the first half gave Manchester United the upper hand and put them on their path to their first victory under manager Erik ten Hag, Newcastle’s own trophy drought, which dates back to 1969, continues.
At 33 minutes, Casemiro scored as he headed in a free kick from Luke Shaw. Sven Botman’s deflection of Marcus Rashford’s shot past Newcastle goalkeeper Loris Karius, who was filling in for the banned Nick Pope, allowed his team to increase their lead.
Newcastle made an effort to fight back in the second half, but Eddie Howe’s team’s scoring ran out of steam at the worst time.
It indicated that Manchester United had achieved victory again, six years after winning the Europa League under Jose Mourinho and this competition in the same season.
