Wembley is braced for the EFL Cup final on Sunday, rolling out the red carpet for frequent attendees Manchester United and aspiring Newcastle United. The Red Devils have won this competition five times in their history, with the last coming in the Jose Mourinho era, while the Magpies are in their first domestic cup final this century.
Habitual medal hoarders Man Utd have been starved of silverware since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down a decade ago, collecting the odd piece of metal here and there, but not on a consistent enough basis to temper their monolithic thirst for success. Erik ten Hag will be hoping to deliver a trophy in his maiden campaign, and lay the foundations for future success.
Newcastle were expected to reach this level of trophy-challenging form at some stage following their Saudi-led takeover in late 2021, but few would have expected them to break the glass ceiling this early. Eddie Howe has his side both competing to reach the Champions League and win a first major trophy since 1969.

Man Utd vs Newcastle match stats
Marcus Rashford has been the inspiration behind Man Utd’s flourishing form this campaign. The ferocious goal-getter is almost single-handedly keeping the club competing on four fronts. He has a staggering 16 goals in 16 games across all competitions since returning from the World Cup, and is enjoying his best ever scoring season in a Man Utd shirt, with 24 goals.
Newcastle welcome back Bruno Guimaraes from suspension following his red card in the semi-final, in which he subsequently missed three Premier League games. The Brazilian midfielder has been the catalyst in Newcastle’s stellar form this campaign and will be a huge boost for their trophy-lifting aspirations. Loris Karius meanwhile looks set to start between the sticks, his first competitive game of football since February 2021 — with Nick Pope suspended.

It was a tame 0-0 between these two clubs when they met earlier this season at Old Trafford. Newcastle would have to go back to October 2019 for the last time they beat Man Utd, with Steve Bruce getting the better of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thanks to Matty Longstaff’s 72nd-minute goal.
