Manchester United vs Newcastle
  • Manchester United vs Newcastle will kick off at 11:15pm Kenyan time
  • United started their title defence with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
  • Newcastle picked a huge 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the third round.

Manchester United will be hoping to bounce back from their painful derby defeat when they host Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup fourth round on Wednesday night.

Erik ten Hag’s side continue their defence of the trophy at Old Trafford, in what is a repeat of last season’s final where they won 2-0 at Wembley after goals from Casemiro and Marcus Rashford secured the gong for the Red Devils.

Following their 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City, United will be hoping to give their fans some reason to smile when they turn up for the clash at home.

United’s defence of the Carabao Cup began with a comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace in September.


On the other hand, Newcastle will be out to get back to winning ways after two matches without victory in all competitions.

As they seek their Carabao Cup final revenge, they will be buoyed by the fact that they defeated Manchester City 1-0 in the previous round and will be hoping to slay another giant on their way to the quarterfinals.

Manchester United vs Newcastle Team News

The fitness of Casemiro remains in question for Man United ahead of the visit of Eddie Howe’s side, with the Brazilian having missed the last three games through a combination of injury and suspension.

Casemiro has trained since returning from international duty but was not named in the matchday squad to face City after Ten Hag described him as being ‘in a race against the clock’ to be ready.

Meanwhile right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is working his way back to full fitness, having returned to training following six weeks on the sidelines.

Youngster Kobbie Mainoo was an unused substitute at the weekend and could be in contention to feature against the north-east club, who are aiming to win their first major domestic trophy since 1955.

Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw and Amad are all still unavailable, however the latter was captured running out on the grass at Carrington on Monday for the first time this season.

On the other hand, the Magpies are set to be without six first-team players for the trip to Old Trafford, as Eddie Howe also prepares for key games in the coming week against Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.

Sandro Tonali is serving a 10-month suspension after being charged with betting-related breaches by the Italian Football Federation.

Tonali’s last appearance before the ban came in Newcastle’s home defeat to Dortmund last week, which was damaging in more ways than one.

Alexander Isak (groin) and Jacob Murphy (shoulder) were added to the list of absentees, which also includes young winger Elliot Anderson, who has a stress fracture to the lower back.

Sven Botman has missed the last seven games with a knee injury, meaning club captain Jamaal Lascelles has returned to the fold, while summer signing Harvey Barnes is out until December with a toe problem.

Manchester United vs Newcastle head-to-head

The two sides will be hoping to have the better of each other with a place in the quarter finals on the line.

United’s defence of the Carabao Cup began with a comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace in September thanks to goals from Alejandro Garnacho, Casemiro and Anthony Martial.

At St James’ Park, Newcastle produced a strong second-half showing to beat Manchester City 1-0 and secure a place in the fourth round.

Isak netted the winning goal after Joelinton’s mazy run found the Swede unmarked inside the penalty area to tuck the ball home.

In the last 5 meetings between the two sides, United have won twice, Newcastle once with the two other games ending in draws.

Manchester United vs Newcastle Prediction

Both sides are seeking to get back to winning ways so goals should be expected from the two teams. Manchester United are tipped to be the slight favourites but Newcastle have proven on more than one occasion that they can be a difficult opponent to face.
