Manchester United badly defeated Newcastle by 2-0 in Carabao Cup final 2023 on Sunday at Wembley Stadium. The game was a chance for both teams to end their respective trophy droughts. Manchester United has not lifted a silverware trophy since winning the Europa League in 2016-17, and Newcastle’s drought has stretched back to 1955. That’s a long time for a club of their status, and this match is the perfect opportunity to end that and move on to bigger goals.
Meanwhile, despite a run of five defeats in Wembley Stadium, Eddie Howe will be hoping to turn around his side’s fortunes and win their first major trophy in over 40 years. And they’ll have the added incentive of seeing Matt Targett return to the squad after a lengthy injury lay-off.
