Manchester United team news

Anthony Martial is still ruled out for this game, while Marcus Rashford has a question mark over his fitness after limping out of Thursday’s 2-1 win over Barcelona.

Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are long-term absentees, while Antony should be fit enough to start after coming off the bench against Barca.

Manchester United v Newcastle – Our Carabao Cup final prediction

This could be a really close game, with Newcastle having a full week to prepare while we put so much into beating Barcelona.

Nick Pope’s absence is a blow for Eddie Howe, but whoever comes in will be pumped up to do well in the game of their career.

Rashford’s fitness is a huge factor. Even if he plays, he might be going through the pain barrier, and that could have an impact.

This one may even go all the way to penalties, but we’ll go for United to win 2-1 and lift a first trophy of the Ten Hag era.
