Carabao Cup Final 2023: How To Watch Manchester United vs Newcastle
Manchester United and manager Erik ten Hag have the opportunity to complete a perfect week by winning the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle United and lifting the first trophy of the season.
United followed up winning 3-0 against Leicester City at Old Trafford, which extended the gap between themselves and this weekend’s opponents in the Premier League table to eight points, by coming from behind in their midweek Europa League play-off tie against Barcelona to progress through to the last 16 of UEFA’s second-tier competition.
Victory in the capital would see Ten Hag come through a pivotal week with flying colours. Newcastle will have something to say about that, though, as they hope to make history in their first cup final since 1999.
What time is kick-off?
Kick-off is set for 4:30pm (11.30am EST) on Sunday.
