I see positive and negatives, we are improving though - Ten Hag

Miguel Almiron, Lewis Hall and Joe Willock fired Newcastle to a famous first Old Trafford victory in a decade as Carabao Cup holders Manchester United suffered a second 3-0 home humiliation in four days.

Wednesday’s fourth-round clash was a repeat of the final eight months ago at Wembley, where Erik ten Hag crowned a promising first season in the hotseat by ending the club’s six-year wait for silverware.

But things have gone awry since then and pressure will intensify on the Dutchman and his team after Newcastle inflicted the Red Devils’ eighth defeat in 15 matches to progress to the quarter-finals.

The fallout to this tie is sure to be dominated by Ten Hag’s United after seeing Sunday’s derby humbling against Manchester City compounded, but this was Newcastle’s night.

The Magpies had only won one of their previous 41 away matches against the Red Devils in all competitions, and few will forget their first Old Trafford triumph since December 2013.

So much for Erik ten Hag’s belief that Manchester United are heading in the right direction. They instead veered out of the Carabao Cup, the defence of their first trophy in six years ending swifty and ignominiously, as their season goes off the rails. Given their wretched form, this scarcely counted as a cup shock but United were shocking nonetheless. Newcastle did not advance into the quarter-finals as much as storm into them.

The fans who saw their side beaten by the other United at Wembley in last season’s final chorused about a return to the national stadium. More often, however, they serenaded Ten Hag with chants of “sacked in the morning”. And if the Newcastle supporters are scarcely impartial and their predictions will be unfounded, it was nevertheless the sound of crisis enveloping Old Trafford.

Manchester United were abysmal, even by their own standards. Caught in possession for Newcastle’s first and third, Ten Hag’s £400m starting 11 were outrun, outworked, out-passed and outclassed. They looked an insipid assortment of individuals, Newcastle a team far greater than the sum of some relatively limited parts. They nevertheless displayed the characteristics, the work ethic and unity, the counter-attacking verve and the defensive resilience, so sadly lacking in their hosts.

FT Man Utd 0-3 Newcastle

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe, speaking to Sky Sports: “It was a very good performance from us. The mentality was brilliant. We had injuries and picked one up early. It was a great response.

“Emil Krafth coming back after such a long absence. He was committed with Paul Dummett. Willock was brilliant and Livramento.

“Without the players committing to what we want, we’ve got no chance. This is a really tough place to come to score the goals we did at the time we did.

“We hope the draw is kinder to us! I don’t think there are any easy games in the quarter-finals. We hope to go one better than last season. You can’t go too far away. We return to the Premier League with Arsenal. I know we have a tough schedule ahead and we look forward to it.

“Delighted for the fans. With the journey, we had to respond and reward them.”

Clinton Morrison, speaking on BBC Radio 5 Sports Extra, praised Newcastle who he believes were the better team tonight (he’s right).

“Fully deserved for Newcstle, after the first 10 minutes they were the better team.” he said, “Lewis Hall and Tino Livramento was outstanding, credit to Joe Willock too who has been out for a while.

“Everyone was all talking about Man United being poor, but tactically Eddie Howe got it spot on. Anthony Gordon led the line very well and caused problems.

“Man United are nowhere near it.”
