Casemiro and Marcus Rashford both scored in the first half to secure the final win against Newcastle United to cements an excellent turnaround under the reign of Erik ten Hag who changes the club from being a consistent underachievers and in the middle of the pact to a real contender and trophy winners in just the span of 10 months.

“It’s an amazing feeling, we’ve been searching for this moment, us, the fans, the club, finally we get our trophy, we deserve it,” Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes told Sky Sports just moments after the final buzzer. “It’s been an amazing period. The first trophy of the season but we want more. It’s not enough for this club, we want more and we need more because our standards deserve more.”

The Final of the EFL Carabao Cup was a historic one in English Football – as both teams waited for years to get their chance to lift a trophy. For Manchester United, the club hasn’t won a single trophy since 2017; a worst streak for a huge club. Meanwhile, for Newcastle United, it was an even longer wait, having not won any major silverware for 54 years and counting.

This is the sweetest wait for Manchester United in six years and the sentiment might well be the same for Ten Hag, who will add this feat into his solid enough personal winner’s medal for Ajax. This is truly a great year for the Red Devils as they remain to be a top contender for Silverware in Europa League, Premier League, and the FA Cup. “For me it was about winning trophies and finally we did it. I am satisfied but I want more. I want much more,” said Bruno Fernandes during their trophy celebration at the Wembley Stadium

On the other side, Newcastle United had relatively great energy to start the game, however their inconsistency and the lack of goal in the previous months became the evidence to their defeat in the finals against Manchester United. Joelinton headed one chance over and Dan Burn’s header ended wide on the stroke of halftime. “No complaints with how we played, obviously the scoreline doesn’t say that, and that’s where football can be cruel,” Newcastle manager Eddie Howe said. “I’m sorry we couldn’t deliver for the fans today.”

‘It’s a mixture of all the emotions. It’s massive for us to be involved in these types of games. It’s something we’ve missed as a club,” Rashford told reporters. “The fact we’ve come all this way and won it, it’s a massive feeling. Hopefully it pushes us now to keep going. There’s a hunger to add more finals like this. I’ve been in finals where we’ve won and lost. It’s massive for us as a club and individuals and it’s part of our history. We want to keep adding to that,” he added.
