This was a triumph for Newcastle and another fiasco from Manchester United. Maybe soon Erik ten Hag will have a real problem of job security, because, after declaring himself confident that he and his players could revive their season after Sunday’s 3-0 humiliation here by Manchester City, continuing their Carabao Cup defence was a prerequisite.
Be knocked out by Newcastle and the vultures would circle over the manager despite Eddie Howe’s side having downed City in the previous round. Yet this is precisely what occurred on a night when all the goals conceded by United were self-inflicted and spoke of a cohesion and confidence paucity.
