Highlights from the Carabao Cup fourth-round match between Manchester United and Newcastle

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.

However, Miguel Almiron - an early replacement for the injured Matt Targett - struck on 28 minutes as Man Utd's confidence wobbled with Hannibal Mejbri lucky not to see red. Before the hosts could recover, Lewis Hall volleyed in his first Newcastle goal to double their lead ahead of the break.

Paul Merson claims that Erik ten Hag is under serious pressure at Manchester United and adds that it appears he's lost the confidence of his players

Man Utd came back into the game after the half-time introductions of Sofyan Amrabat and Aaron Wan-Bissaka only to be punished on the hour as Joe Willock delivered a hammer blow. Ten Hag's side were deflated after the third and became petulant as fans left the stadium in their droves.

Carabao Cup quarter-final draw in full

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.

How Newcastle got revenge on lacklustre Man Utd

Ten Hag spoke of going for the next trophy after his team beat Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley in February, ending Man Utd's six-year wait for silverware. But results have deteriorated since then, and Wednesday night's performance leaves any chance of more trophies feeling remote.

Team news

  • Man Utd midfielder Casemiro returned after an injury, while Mason Mount and Alejandro Garnacho were given rare starts.
  • Erik ten Hag made seven changes after the defeat to Man City, with Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund left on the bench.
  • Newcastle boss Eddie Howe had one eye on forthcoming games against Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund as he made eight changes.
  • The Magpies started with five full-backs and no recognised striker.

Hannibal, who was initially booked for an unnecessary barge on Sean Longstaff, should have been sent off inside 20 minutes after a late challenge on Emile Krafth. There was no sign of a senior player putting an arm around him, and the 20-year-old failed to settle down.

Manchester Utd midfielder Hannibal was lucky to avoid a second yellow card after a late challenge on Newcastle's Emil Krafth

"He's hanging in there by a thread," Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville said on co-commentary. Casemiro was booked soon after, adding to the sense of anxiety at Old Trafford. Hannibal was then at fault for Newcastle's opener as Tino Livramento launched a stunning counter from his own half.

Almiron, who Howe had planned to rest ahead of a tough run against Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund, came on after five minutes with Targett injured and helped to unlock the game for Newcastle. Despite his loose touch, he recovered to open the scoring after being set up by Livramento.

Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe says togetherness and unity are what helped his side to the win

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe was delighted to deliver Newcastle's first Old Trafford victory since December 2013.

"It was a massive performance from the players and I can't credit them enough," said Howe.

"Some great stories, only (an injury to) Matt Targett the negative, but even more credit to the players and some giant performances.

"I personally have always found it a difficult ground and Newcastle the same so another thing to be really proud of is the commitment showed by everyone. I thought we showed some great goals, the quality was a real highlight.

"We are determined to try and do well in every game. We picked a team we felt could win and now we will do the same for Arsenal (on Saturday)."
