Manchester United will look to bounce back from their defeat in the derby when they host Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag’s side were resoundingly beaten 3-0 at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday, but will want to put that behind them against Newcastle.
The teams met in the final of last year’s competition, where the Magpies were outclassed in their first final since 1999, with Manchester United winning the match 2-0 to lift the League Cup trophy.
Newcastle have improved since then, while United have slid further down the table. So far this season, Eddie Howe’s side have got the better of Paris Saint-Germain in a tough Champions League group and have two more points than Manchester United in the Premier League as well.
