Man United beat Newcastle to win Carabao Cup end six-year trophy drought Feb 27

In a thrilling final at Wembley Stadium, Manchester United defeated Newcastle United 2-0 to win the Carabao Cup and end their six-year trophy drought.

The first half was a tight affair, with both sides creating chances but unable to find the back of the net. The breakthrough came in the 64th minute when Marcus Rashford latched onto a through ball from Bruno Fernandes and coolly slotted past Newcastle's goalkeeper.

Newcastle fought hard to get back into the game, but their efforts were in vain as Manchester United doubled their lead in the 82nd minute through a stunning strike from midfielder Paul Pogba. Pogba received the ball just outside the box and unleashed a powerful shot into the top corner, leaving Newcastle's goalkeeper with no chance.

The victory was a long time coming for Manchester United, who last won a major trophy in 2017 when they lifted the Europa League. The Carabao Cup, formerly known as the League Cup, is the first trophy won by United since the arrival of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2018.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer praised his players for their performance and their resilience throughout the season. "It's been a tough season, but these boys have shown great character and determination to come through and win this trophy," he said. "I'm proud of them and the work we've done together."

The win is a major boost for Manchester United as they continue to challenge for the Premier League title and look to progress in the Europa League. For Newcastle, it is another disappointment in a season that has seen them struggle near the bottom of the table.

As the celebrations continue for Manchester United fans around the world, the team can now look forward to the rest of the season with renewed confidence and optimism.
