Eddie Howe makes Manchester United admission after Historic Newcastle Carabao Cup win

Newcastle crushed Manchester United in the Carabao Cup fourth round, recording a historic triumph.



Eddie Howe acknowledges that it meant “everything” for Newcastle to overcome Manchester United handily on Wednesday night in their Carabao Cup match.

At Old Trafford, Miguel Almiron gave the Magpies the lead. But, goals from Lewis Hall and Joe Willock sealed a historic victory that sent the team to the competition’s quarterfinals.

In addition to getting one over the team they had frequented in the 1990s, Newcastle also exacted retribution for their loss to United in the previous season’s championship game.


Newcastle supporters were ecstatic to have their team win so handily at Old Trafford, and in his post-match interview, Howe acknowledged that the rivalry gave their victory a deeper meaning.

“It means everything to us and hopefully to them (the fans),” he declared at the news conference held following the game. “The response at the conclusion was evident. They understood we were going through a difficult period and that we were changing, but sometimes it strengthens our bond. Matt Ritchie is one of those players that elevates that, and his performance was excellent.”

Howe insisted he never had any ideas other than to play offensive football, even when his team had a two-goal lead going into halftime.

“The message at halftime was to be brave and positive and to keep doing the things that brought us success,” he continued. I’ve witnessed a lot of games played here where the crowd wins.”
