On February 26, Wembley Stadium (London) will host the final match of the EFL Cup, in which Manchester United will compete with Newcastle. The battle will start at 17:30 CET.

Manchester United

The team will start the match that is special to it and, even more, to ten Hag – there is a chance to take the first trophy for the Dutch specialist. And the “Red Devils” have not won for a long time. On the other hand, Newcastle is no less motivated. It goes without saying that Manchester United has a trump card – the excellent shape that the top club got in the winter. On the other hand, it is forced to play on an incredibly tight schedule – there were two matches per week without any respite. The previous round of the Premier League, that happened just on Sunday, was devoted to a battle against Leicester – the team defeated it with a 3-0 score. And there was a return match in the Europa League with Barcelona on Thursday. There, the British grandee conceded first because of, to tell the truth, a stupid penalty. Nevertheless, it scored the necessary goals, which resulted in a strong-willed 2-1 success.


The club spent 2022 in a pretty wonderful way. First, it made an incredible run from the bottom to the middle of the table in the previous season. But that was only the beginning: having received a new portion of curious newcomers, Eddie Howe’s wards lost only once in the first half of the new championship, which resulted in the 3rd place. Then, there was a serious problem in the winter – a shortage of goals. A well-built defence allowed the team to extend the record of unbeaten streak, and it turned out to get into the final of the EFL Cup. But, to be honest, there are too few wins in the Premier League – in fact, there has been only a 1-0 success in the battle with Fulham since New Year. The points were shared even with weak Leeds and Bournemouth. The struggle with Liverpool can be characterized by the completely failed start, when at first the team missed from both Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo, and then, Pope got the removal, trying to help the defence in a pretty unsuccessful way.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Both previous head-to-head matches, which were in December 2021 and last October, resulted in draws.


Bookmakers believe that there is a clear favourite of the battle. Let’s agree with them – Newcastle has been “blown” away, and Manchester United should get a victory in regular time (odd: 2.28).
