'Man Utd vs Newcastle: Carabao Cup Rematch in the Last-16 – Live Stream, TV, and Team News
Manchester United clinched the Carabao Cup trophy in February with a 2-0 win against the Magpies, and this match offers a chance for revenge for Newcastle.
Manchester United enters the fourth-round fixture in need of a win after suffering a 3-0 defeat against city rivals Manchester City, pushing them down to eighth place in the Premier League table. The game was decided by Erling Haaland's brace and assist for Phil Foden.
Erik ten Hag's future with Manchester United is in question, with differing opinions on whether he needs more time or if changes are needed. There are even calls to strip Bruno Fernandes of the captaincy.
On the other hand, Newcastle is enjoying a successful season after recovering from a challenging start. The team currently sits sixth in the Premier League, having not lost in seven league matches.
In the Champions League, Newcastle is in a good position, with the same points as second-placed Borussia Dortmund after three games.
As Newcastle aims to overcome the heartbreak from last season's Carabao Cup final, it's important to note that they haven't won a major trophy since 1955.
Newcastle has lost only one of their last 11 matches, with that defeat occurring in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund last week. Their form has been impressive, with six wins in their last ten games and four draws.
Manchester United's form has been inconsistent this season. Despite a four-match winning streak, including two Champions League victories against Copenhagen and Galatasaray, their performance in the Premier League has raised concerns, culminating in their recent defeat to Manchester City.
Newcastle will be without Sandro Tonali, serving the second game of his ten-month ban due to betting breaches. They will also miss Sven Botman (knee), Alexander Isak (groin), and Jacob Murphy (shoulder).
Manchester United continues to miss Luke Shaw (muscular) and Tyrell Malacia (knee), but Casemiro and Aaron Wan-Bissaka may return to the lineup. Amad Diallo is back from injury but is not yet ready to play in the match against the Magpies.
Marcus Rashford is expected to shine for Manchester United, looking to regain his form after scoring only once in the Premier League this season. Rashford could provide the spark the team needs, especially after the defeat to City.
For Newcastle, Callum Wilson will likely be the star player. Despite playing second fiddle to Isak before his injury, Wilson has been in excellent form, scoring seven goals in 11 appearances in all competitions.
