Manchester United's players celebrate after scoring their first goal against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.
First-half goals from star midfielder Casemiro and the unstoppable Marcus Rashford, with the help of a heavy deflection off Sven Botman, broke Newcastle United’s hearts with Eddie Howe’s team banking only £50,000 for their efforts.
Erik Ten Hag hailed his Brazilian star Casemiro after he led Manchester United to League Cup glory.
United beat Newcastle United 2-0 at Wembley to seal the first silverware of the season with a header by Casemiro and a Marcus Rashford strike that was initially given as a Sven Botman own goal.
His leadership and experience is huge for us and when he's on the pitch you feel that sense of security behind us.'
Ten Hag agreed that winning at Wembley justified his decision to leave a successful set-up and Ajax and move to Old Trafford 10 months ago.
Erik ten Hag was the picture of elation when it was all over, dancing a South American jig with Lisandro Martínez and Antony, his Old Trafford revolution given the hard edge that he had demanded. And, really, it was all pretty comfortable after a two-goal salvo towards the end of the first half.
The Newcastle substitute Jacob Murphy fizzed a low shot wide on 88 minutes while Joelinton worked De Gea with a header in stoppage time but it was too little, too late. It was United who were the likelier scorers of the next goal, more dangerous on the break, and they would have got it had Karius not denied Rashford or Bruno Fernandes passed to the substitute Jadon Sancho rather than shooting. Karius made a smart save.
has plenty more to play for. The Red Devils are alive in the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.
