Man Utd dumped out of Carabao Cup


Holders Man Utd were dumped out of the Carabao Cup at the fourth round after a humbling 3-0 defeat to a weakened Newcastle side at Old Trafford to pile the pressure on Erik ten Hag.

In a repeat of last season’s final, out-of-form Man Utd were given hope this could be a chance to redeem themselves after Sunday’s dismal Manchester derby defeat with Eddie Howe naming a Newcastle team that included five full-backs and no recognised striker.

Newcastle will play Chelsea in the quarter finals after claiming revenge with a rare win at Old Trafford to leave Ten Hag at one of his lowest ebbs since taking charge.

Man Utd have lost five of their 10 games at home so far, making it their worst start to a campaign since 1930.
