The Carabao Cup is set to conclude today with either Manchester United or Newcastle United set to lift the trophy from this much-anticipated match.
Both teams have shown enormous rejuvenations this season and both teams look equal in their preparations and approaches to this coveted match. The Wembley Stadium is again set to witness history when these two Premier League juggernauts round up each other.
Official Lineups has been announced by both Manchester United and Newcastle United and both sides are fielding an in-form team.
Manchester United Lineup
The Reds’ fans will be relieved to see the name of Marcus Rashford who has been in red-hot form since the return of club football from the World Cup.
Casemiro will make his presence known and perhaps use his 5-time Champions League-winning mentality and composure to again steer Manchester United to their first silverware since 2017.
Fred starts the match after playing a mammoth role versus Barcelona this past week and Antony too gets the nod after scoring the winning goal against the Blaugranas.
New signing Wout Weghorst gets the start even after showing a lack of form recently. Erik Ten Hag might have chosen this option owing to the scarcity of forwards in the team. Anthony Martial remains out and so this decision is probably taken.
World Cup winner Lisandro Martinez will aim to continue his colossal presence at the back.
THE LINEUP: De Gea; Dalot, Martinez, Varane, Shaw; Fred, Casemiro; Antony, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford; Wout Weghorst.
Newcastle United Lineup
Former Liverpool Goalkeeper Loris Karius expectedly gets the nod after suspension to first-team man Nick Pope and Martin Dubravka’s inability to play this match.
Captain Kieran Trippier will aim to transform his Premier League start form into this final and help his side grab their first trophy since 60 years.
Miguel Almiron starts after signing a contract extension with the Magpies this past week.
THE LINEUP: Karius; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Wilson.
