Man-U Beats Newcastle To Clinch Trophy

Manchester United clinched their first major trophy in six years with a ruthless 2-0 win against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

Erik ten Hag’s side took control by half-time thanks to Casemiro’s header and a Sven Botman own goal and held firm despite Newcastle’s second-half pressure. United’s first silverware since 2017, when they won the Carabao Cup and the Europa League in the Jose Mourinho era, was just a reward for a mature display that underlined the impressive work done by Dutchman Ten Hag since he arrived from Ajax last year.

The celebrations that accompanied United’s sixth Carabao Cup triumph could be the first of many trophy parades on the evidence of Ten Hag’s transformative first season.
