Newcastle United owners deliver ‘incredible’ verdict to what they saw v Man United

Newcastle United’s 3-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday was their first at Old Trafford since 1972.
Newcastle United co-owners Mehrdad Ghodoussi and Jamie Reuben called the 3-0 Carabao Cup victory over Manchester United “incredible.”

Because of injuries and tired bodies as a result of the hectic schedule, Eddie Howe had to make eight changes to his starting XI, with Emil Krafth, Matt Ritchie, Joe Willock, and Martin Dubravka making their first starts of the 2023-24 season.

Only Joelinton, Sean Longstaff, and Anthony Gordon remained from Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Tino Livramento, Paul Dummett, Lewis Hall, and Matt Targett were recalled.
Newcastle faced adversity just three minutes in when Targett was forced to withdraw with a hamstring injury and join the club’s eight-man absentee list. But it was his replacement, Miguel Almiron, who got the ball rolling.

And the outcome was never in doubt after that. Before Willock put the game to bed on the hour mark, Hall scored his first goal since joining Chelsea in the summer.

Newcastle’s second victory at Old Trafford since 1972 was witnessed by 7,000 travelling Geordies.

Ghodoussi responded to the victory on social media, writing, “Incredible performance by the lads, so proud of the resilience and fight.” We are one, we are united. @NUFC#nufc#carabaocup A special thanks also goes out to the away fans, who sang their hearts out – your support means everything to the team.”

Reuben also used the word “incredible” before adding “United” to his post.

Following the game, it was announced that Newcastle, having eliminated both Manchester clubs from the competition, will face Chelsea in the quarter-finals on December 19 at Stamford Bridge.
