Newcastle United player ratings: 9.5/10 ‘machine’ & ‘electric’ 9/10 in 3-0 win at Man United
Newcastle United advanced into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup in emphatic fashion with a 3-0 victory at Manchester United. Miguel Almiron and Lewis Hall were on target in the first-half before Joe Willock added a third after the break.
Eddie Howe made eight changes from Saturday evening’s 2-2 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Martin Dubravka, Emil Krafth, Matt Ritchie and Joe Willock were handed their first starts of the 2023-24 campaign, while Tino Livramento and Lewis Hall made only their second starts since arriving from Southampton and Chelsea, respectively, in the summer.
Newcastle were without eight first-team players prior to the game and it quickly became nine less than two minutes in when Matt Targett was forced off.
His replacement, Miguel Almiron, opened the scoring in the 28th minute. The Paraguayan latched onto a ball by Livramento before aiming the ball past Andre Onana in the Man United goal. The Magpies then doubled their lead 12 minutes later as Hall volleyed into the bottom corner.
The hosts introduced Sofyan Ambrabat and Aaron Wan-Bissaka at half-time but any momentum was killed when Willock added a third on the hour-mark.
Ten Hag went all on by bringing on Rasmus Hojlund, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes soon after but the Magpies held out for a clean sheet.
