Manchester United beat Newcastle United to win Carabao Cup

Manchester United have won their first trophy under manager Erik ten Hag, beating Newcastle United 2-0 at Wembley to lift the Carabao Cup.

United’s goals came from their Brazilian midfielder, Casemiro, and an own goal from the Magpies’ Sven Botman.

Both came in the first half.

Former Man Utd captain Roy Keane, working for Sky Sports, said Newcastle had “done very, very well”, but Man Utd had been “efficient”.

“This is top-level sport,” Keane said.

It is Erik ten Hag’s first trophy as Man United manager

It is the Red Devils’ first silverware since they won the Europa League in 2017 under José Mourinho.

United have now ended their longest trophy drought in 40 years.

Newcastle United’s last trophy was the FA Cup, which they won in 1955.

United midfielder Bruno Fernandes said victory was an “amazing feeling” and the team had been “searching for this moment – us, the fans, the club”.

He added: “Finally we get our trophy. We deserve it. It’s not enough for this club – we want more and we need more because our standards deserve more.”

Sir Alex Ferguson was at Wembley Stadium

Sky Sports’ Gary Neville, another former United captain, said ten Hag had “transformed a team from whiners into winners”.

He commented: “What a job Erik ten Hag has done. They have a sprit and a fight. There is a real chance of winning trophies beyond this.

“He makes good decisions in matches – his subs were critical in making sure they saw this game out. It’s been a brilliant last few months.”
