On Wednesday night at Old Trafford, Manchester United will aim to recover from their loss in the derby as they take on Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup.
Newcastle will be the next opponents for Erik ten Hag’s team, who suffered a significant 3-0 loss to Manchester City on Sunday. However, they will aim to move on from that defeat and focus on their upcoming match.
Last year’s competition saw the teams face off in the final, with the Magpies losing to Manchester United 2-0 and the latter taking home the League Cup trophy. This was the Magpies’ first final appearance since 1999.
