Manchester United will face Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium this weekend to contest the first major domestic trophy of the season, the Carabao Cup.
Newcastle became the first team to reach the final, with their 3-1 aggregate win in the semi-final over Southampton.
Goals from Sean Longstaff at St James’ Park in the second leg were enough to give Eddie Howe’s side a 3-1 win over two legs, following their 1-0 victory at St Mary’s Stadium the previous week.
It is Newcastle United’s first major cup final since 1999, when they reached the FA Cup final, but lost to Manchester United.
Having won the first leg of their semi-final at the City Ground, five-time winners Manchester United secured their place in the final with a relatively routine second-leg win at Old Trafford. Despite going into half-time goalless, goals from Anthony Martial and Fred wrapped the tie up with a 5-0 aggregate win over Steve Cooper’s Forest side.
