Reigning Carabao Cup holders Manchester United were knocked out of the competition by Newcastle United this evening
Eddie Howe shuffled his pack but still managed to guide the Magpies to an impressive victory.
Miguel Almiron and Lewis Hall got on the scoresheet to hand Newcastle a perfect start.
Former Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock tripled the lead on the hour mark to ensure the Red Devils could not make a late comeback.
Erik ten Hag made some poor and untimely substitutions, which will only increase pressure on him.
Let’s get into some player ratings.
Andre Onana – 4/10
Helpless for all three goals.
Diogo Dalot – 1/10
Dalot’s worst performance of the season. Almiron and Hall turned him around like he was playing at right-back for the first time. Substituted at half-time.
Harry Maguire – 4/10
Weak and immobile. After conceding three goals in two consecutive games, Maguire should look back at his statement where he showed off his high winning percentage.
He assisted Hall by directing his clearance in the former Chelsea defender’s path.
Victor Lindelof – 3/10
After starting at left-back for a few games, Ten Hag finally shifted the Sweden international to the centre of defence.
He didn’t cover himself in glory for the third Newcastle goal.
Sergio Reguilon – 4/10
Felt refreshing to have a left-back who can run up and down the flank. However, he failed to add any quality. This is why Tottenham Hotspur did not rate him.
Casemiro – 3/10
The Brazilian ace is probably playing his testimonial season. He looks unfit. Replaced at half-time for the second game running.
Mason Mount – 4/10
He took a long-range shot to test the goalkeeper, but all his other attempts were wayward.
Not good enough to wear Man United’s number seven shirt.
Hannibal Mejbri – 2/10
The youngster rightly earned a yellow card for his silly challenge on Sean Longstaff. He could have received another booking a few minutes later, but the referee let him off with a warning.
Alejandro Garnacho – 4/10
Garnacho failed to make the same impact as last season. He lost his duel with Tino Livramento, who went on to assist Almiron for the first goal.
Antony – 3/10
The winger saw a lot of ball but failed to create any meaningful opportunity apart from the half-chance for Bruno Fernandes. He has yet to score or assist this season.
Anthony Martial – 2/10
It looked like Man United played without a striker when he was on the field. His career at Old Trafford should be over.
Sofyan Amrabat – 2/10
The midfielder came on to replace Casemiro and didn’t do any better. He lost possession in the centre of the pitch, which led to Newcastle’s third goal.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 5/10
Another player who lacked fitness but did a much better job than Dalot at the back.
Bruno Fernandes – 4/10
Fernandes dropped deep to spray long balls when he should have been near the box.
Marcus Rashford – 3/10
The England international was brought on with 30 minutes remaining but failed to make any positive contribution.
Rasmus Hojlund – 4/10
Hojlund did not cause any problems for the Newcastle back four.
