United reach Carabao Cup final

Wednesday 01 February 2023 21:50

Manchester United have made it through to the Carabao Cup final on Sunday 26 February.

Erik ten Hag has successfully guided the Reds to our first Wembley final in five years as we bid to get our hands on a trophy we last won in 2017.

Newcastle United will provide the opposition on the big day, after overcoming Southampton 3-1 in their two-legged semi-final.

United's latest signing is at Old Trafford to cheer on the Reds.

A seventh straight domestic cup win for the boss was achieved in driving rain on Wednesday night at Old Trafford, courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

After Wout Weghorst hit the woodwork in the first half, the deadlock was broken when Anthony Martial marked his return as a substitute with a clinical finish in the 73rd minute.

A 12th successive home win in all competitions was secured, three minutes later, as Fred touched in Marcus Rashford's inviting ball across. Both players scored in the Premier League home game against Forest on 27 December.

A commanding 5-0 aggregate scoreline shows the focus on trying to lift a trophy in Ten Hag's maiden campaign in charge, as this was a ruthless showing over the two legs.

We last faced the Magpies in a major final in 1999, beating them 2-0 in the FA Cup at Wembley as the second leg of the historic Treble. Teddy Sheringham and Paul Scholes were on target.

United are bidding for a sixth triumph in the League Cup, the first of which came in 1992, against Forest, when Brian McClair scored the only goal. Subsequent successes came in 2006, 2009, 2010 and the 2017 victory over Southampton.   

As a result, our home league game with Brentford will need to be rearranged.
