Manchester United defeated Newcastle 2-0 yesterday at Wembley to win the Carabao Cup.
Manchester United went into the game with a six-year trophy drought, and they had to win to end it. United took the lead when Casemiro met Luke Shaw’s powerful freekick and headed in the opening goal past a rushing Lorius Karius, who had not played a competitive game in 5 years.
Marcus Rashford quickly added a second just minutes later after being teed up by Weghorst but getting a slight deflection from Botman.
In the second half, Newcastle came pushing hard for a goal, but United stood strong as Wan Bissaka was able to contain Saint Maximin, who gave Dalot a hard time in the first half. David De Gea also tipped out Burn’s effort from a corner kick to keep United upfront. United also had chances to add a third goal through in-form player Marcus Rashford, but Karius stood strong to deny him. Bruno Fernandes also had a chance to kill the game but decided not to pass to Jadon Sancho and saw his effort saved by Karius.
After the full-time whistle, Manchester United started the celebration of Ten Hag’s first trophy as a Manchester United manager.
After the game, Ten Hag was seen dancing with his players, and he explained, “We have a history, the two players and me in Amsterdam. “We did some dancing, and I hope we can do more in the future,” Ten Hag said. “We have to invest and suffer every day so we can win trophies,” Ten Hag said. “It is about glory and honor.” “If you want to win something, you have to do it because no one is going to bring you silverware in top football.” He said.
