Manchester United 2-0 Newcastle United: Erik Ten Hag ends trophy drought since 2017 with 2023 Carabao Cup

Manchester United have won the 2023 Carabao Cup by defeating Newcastle United 2-0 in the final. The Premier League giants have ended their drought for silverware since 2017 with Erik Ten Hag’s first trophy. 

It took the Dutchman 40 games to win his first trophy with Manchester United, with a goal from Casemiro and an own goal from Sven Botman proving to be the difference between the two teams.

The first goal came from a free-kick situation, perfectly delivered by Casemiro to head past Loris Karius. Marcus Rashford forced the own goal from Sven Botman with his cross, doubling their lead in the very first half. 

Newcastle United came out with a lot of intensity in the second half, but were unable to test David De Gea thoroughly. They reached a major final for the first time in 24 years, and will have to wait longer for winning a trophy.

Moreover, their losing streak at Wembley Stadium continues, with their ninth straight loss in front of the capacity crowd. 

The Red Devils, on the other hand, have something to show for their massive improvement under Erik Ten Hag recently. The former Ajax boss has been persistent that winning trophies, not matches, is their main objective. And now that they have one in the bag already, they will be confident of challenging in the Europa League now that they are in the Round of 16. 

Newcastle United, on the other hand, will have to bounce back and continue their Champions League challenge as they are fifth with two games in hand.
