All eyes will be on Wembley this Sunday afternoon as Manchester United and Newcastle United are set to battle it out to get their hands on the Carabao Cup trophy.
This weekend’s showpiece event under the famous Wembley arc provides an opportunity for both to end their respective silverware-less streaks, and win the first trophy of a new era.
Manchester United have so far enjoyed a successful season forcing themselves into the Premier League title conversation, reaching the Carabao Cup final and remaining in contention for both the FA Cup and the Europa League.
But the Dutchman has made it clear that he will only label this season to be a success if they win at least one of the four trophies still available to them, rather than take the credit for progress Man Utd have made under him.
As such, the Red Devils could end a six-year wait for silverware when they meet Newcastle in the final.
The Magpies have been excellent in Eddie Howe’s first full season at the helm, albeit losing some of the positive momentum post World Cup.
They are still the feel good story of the season, and beating the Red Devils to lift their first major trophy since the 1970s would confirm that they’re the rising powerhouse many of the big teams have feared they’d become since the Saudi-led takeover.
Both teams will view this as simply the first step in a long road back to the top of English football, but that doesn’t make winning the trophy any less meaningful, especially from Newcastle fans perspective who are starved for some silverware.
