Carabao Cup: Manchester United defeats Charlton

Carabao Cup

Erik ten Hag made eight changes to the United lineup in preparation for the Old Trafford derby against Manchester City on Saturday. Antony, a player who was kept in the starting lineup from Friday’s 3-1 victory over Everton, provided the game-changing goal on minute 21.

A 9,000-strong traveling crowd encouraged Charlton, who kept the tie alive despite Ten Hag substituting Casemiro, Rashford, and Christian Eriksen for the final 30 minutes. In the 90th minute, Rashford scored for the ninth game in a row at Old Trafford, effectively sealing the victory for the hosts.

When Casemiro passed to the England international in stoppage time, he delivered a thunderous finish to bring his season total to 15. For the first time since 1976, Newcastle is in the League Cup semifinals. Eddie Howe’s team is attempting to end Tyneside’s 54-year trophy drought.

Only a lack of ruthlessness from the guests kept the Foxes in the game for an hour at St. James’ Park as Newcastle stormed over Leicester in a recent 3-0 victory at the King Power in the Premier League. Prior to halftime, Bruno Guimaraes, Sean Longstaff, and Callum Wilson all made poor decisions.

Dan Burn, an unlikely figure, started the scoring instead. The large left back coolly inserted the ball with his right foot. Miguel Almiron‘s pass was calmly finished by Joelinton to immediately double Newcastle’s lead, leaving the home crowd daydreaming of a trip to Wembley next month.

When Manchester City plays Southampton in the quarterfinals on Wednesday, they will still be the favorites to win the tournament, which they have won four times in the past five years. In the other round of eight match, Nottingham Forest will host Wolves.
