We simulate Man United vs Newcastle United to get a Carabao Cup final prediction

Manchester United have a chance to win their first trophy since 2017 on Sunday when they take on Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final.

After beating Nottingham Forest 5-0 on aggregate in the last round of the competition, United will face Newcastle at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final following the Magpies’ semi-final victory over Southampton. Erik ten Hag’s side will enter the clash following a 4-3 aggregate win over Barcelona, ​​but Marcus Rashford was delayed late, making the striker a doubt for Sunday.

United have won this competition five times in their history, with their League Cup success coming six years ago. The two teams have met once already this season, with Newcastle holding United to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
