Man United, Newcastle in Carabao Cup finals

Newcastle have never won the Carabao (EFL) Cup with just one previous final appearance in their history coming in a 2-1 loss to Manchester City in 1976.

In stark contrast, 2023 is United’s 10th EFL Cup final, with old foes Liverpool (13) the only side to feature in more.

However, those finals have produced a mixed bag of results for the Red Devils, with four defeats (1983, 1991, 1994 and 2003) alongside five wins (in 1992, 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2017).

The 2017 final victory against Southampton is United’s last major domestic trophy with ten Hag describing the gap in silverware as ‘too long’.

Man United vs Newcastle head-to-head

United have enjoyed a strong historical record over Newcastle with 90 wins in all competitions alongside 43 losses and 41 draws.

The two teams have enjoyed some fantastic battles during the Premier League era with Newcastle’s 5-0 win at Old Trafford in 1996 going down as one of their most famous results.

However, Sir Alex Ferguson constantly got the better of the Magpies, and in particular, his old sparring partner, Kevin Keegan.

Philippe Albert’s famous chip was synonymous with the fixture for over a decade before Wayne Rooney’s unbelievable goal in their 2005 meeting at Old Trafford.
