Manchester United and Newcastle United eased into the League Cup semifinals

As Erik Ten Hag focused on Saturday’s Old Trafford derby against Manchester City, with a youthful United team that saw eight changes. Antony, one of those who remained in the starting lineup from Friday’s 3-1 victory over Everton, scored the game-winning goal in 21 minutes.

Despite Ten Hag bringing in Casemiro, Rashford, and Christian Eriksen off the bench for the final half of the game, Charlton held on to the tie thanks to a 9,000-strong traveling crowd.

In the 90th minute, Rashford scored for the eighth time in a row, securing the victory for the hosts.
With a crushing finish from Casemiro’s pass deep into the final minute, the England international increased his season total to 15.

“I think we had to finish this off early, but the goal was to get through, so thanks to the team,” “I think we had to finish this off early.”

Eddie Howe’s team moved one step closer to ending a 54-year drought on Tyneside by reaching the League Cup semis for the first time since 1976.

Right back for Newcastle Kieran Trippier stated, “It would mean everything to win a trophy, but we just need to focus on the next game.”

“The people who support us are brilliant. They follow us in large numbers, and the atmosphere at home is always great. By giving everything on the field, we want to make them proud.”

In a recent Premier League match, the Magpies defeated Leicester 3-0 at the King Power, and only the hosts’ lack of ruthlessness kept the Foxes in the game for an hour at St. James’ Park.

Before the break, Callum Wilson, Sean Longstaff, and Bruno Guimaraes missed big chances.
Dan Burn, an unlikely character, opened the scoring instead. With his right foot, the massive left back calmly slammed the ball home.

Joelinton calmly converted Miguel Almiron’s pass to quickly double Newcastle’s lead, leaving the home crowd longing for a trip to Wembley the following month.

With Pep Guardiola’s team facing Southampton in the quarterfinals on Wednesday, Manchester City is still the favorite to win the competition, which they have already won four times in the past five years.
The other tie in the last eight pits Wolves against Nottingham Forest.
