The Man Utd vs Newcastle live stream certainly offers a matchup worthy of the Carabao Cup final (and is actually a repeat of the 1999 FA Cup final). That game saw the Red Devils triumph, and more than two decades later, Man Utd are again strong favorites to lift the trophy in this latest encounter between these two historic English clubs.

Man Utd vs Newcastle preview

After almost a decade of false dawns, Man Utd genuinely appear to be on track to reclaim their status as one of football's superstar teams. After a slightly rocky start, the Erik ten Hag era is now picking up momentum, and a first cup win under the Dutchman would send a message to the footballing world that Man Utd are back and ready to challenge for the game’s biggest prizes. 

Man Utd come into this game on a nine-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, and having scored at least twice in their last 10 games. The rejuvenation of Marcus Rashford has grabbed headlines, but it’ll be the return of Casemiro after a three-game suspension that will really have the Red Devils purring. The Brazilian playmaker is a real difference-maker and would undoubtedly love to add the Carabao Cup to his enviable trophy cabinet. 

Meanwhile, Newcastle have an important returnee of their own as Bruno Guimarães is once again eligible to play after serving a suspension. In his absence, Newcastle have looked bereft of a creative spark, and it’s a telling statistic that the Magpies have yet to taste victory this season without him in the starting lineup. 

Even with the return of Guimarães, the pre-match signs aren’t good for a Newcastle team that have hit a sticky patch of form at the very worst time. The Magpies are three games without a win in the Premier League, and most recently lost at home to Liverpool. That defeat was particularly damaging as it saw their first-choice goalkeeper, Nick Pope, dismissed for a calamitous handball. He’ll now miss this match due to a suspension. 

History is also on Man Utd’s side here. The Red Devils have a history of thwarting the Magpies when the pressure is really on. Man Utd cruised to a 2-0 in the 1999 FA Cup final between these sides, and famously overcame a 12-point deficit to pip Newcastle to the Premier League title in the 1995/96 season. 

Man Utd are looking to win their first major trophy since 2017, whereas for Newcastle the trophyless spell has been a tad longer. Newcastle’s last trophy came in the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (the precursor to the modern-day Europa League), and you have to go all the way back to 1955 for the last time Newcastle won a major honor on domestic soil. But with Man Utd in rip-roaring form, it seems the Magpie's agonizing wait for a trophy is set to be extended even further.   

Of course, football doesn’t always play out as you would expect, and there’s always the chance of a twist in this tale. So, will Man Utd send a warning to the football world, or will Newcastle upset the script, you’ll need to watch the Man Utd vs Newcastle live stream to find out.
