Erik ten Hag looks to have his team on a roll. Players are improving under his management and the results are getting better and better. In this Carabao Cup quarter finals they played Charlton Athletic, the 12th placed team in the Championship. Antony opened the score in the first half, but it dried up from there. Until the dying minutes of the game, when Marcus Rashford scored two goals to set the score at 3-0. More than enough for Man United to qualify for the semi-finals. Man United fans with confidence are booking their Carabao Cup final tickets already.
Newcastle United is the team that’s on the same number of points as Manchester United in the Premier League. Manager Eddie Howe is again what a good manager he is. In this Carabao Cup quarter final they played against Leicester City. They needed an hour to get off the mark. Defender Dan Burn opened the score for Newcastle United in the 60th minute. 12 minutes later Joelinton doubled the lead to secure Newcastle’s win. Now they are waiting together with Man United on which teams they will face in the semi-finals. It’s going to be between Nottingham Forest versus Wolves and Southampton versus Manchester City.
