The new era has begun. Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United has finally landed its hands on a trophy after six long years. The Red Devils defeated Newcastle United 2-0 to win the Carabao Cup at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
Manchester United started the match with some excellent gameplay. The team relentlessly attacked to put Newcastle United on the back foot. Soon after, Casemiro scored the opener for Erik ten Hag’s side at Wembley to give them the lead.
The club widened their lead as a Marcus Rashford shot was deflected by Sven Botman in his own goal to make matters worse for the Magpies.
With this win, the Premier League club won its first piece of silverware since they won the Europa League under Jose Mourinho in 2017.
The Glory Glory days are back, the Reds are marching on on on. @ManUtd are winners of the #CarabaoCup 🏆

Erik Ten Hag, who has been brilliant at the club, said in the post-match interview, “Yet again this evening, they had the right spirit. It’s a very good spirit, they act as a team and fight, give everything.” He further added, “It was not always the best football, but it was effective. Firstly, you have to win the first one [trophy]. We will get a lot of inspiration from this, but also more confidence that we can do it.”
Manchester United, under Erik Ten Hag, is playing exceptionally and is on the lookout to win more trophies. The club is in contention for the FA Cup and Europa League and still has an outside shot of winning the Premier League.
