Goals from Miguel Almiron, Lewis Hall and Joe Willock helped Newcastle beat Man United at Old Trafford. This result means that the Red Devils have now been eliminated from the League Cup, ending their dream of defending the title, while they are also in 8th place on the Premier League table after a poor start.
Newcastle’s impressive victory marked revenge for Eddie Howe’s team, who lost to Erik ten Hag’s team in the League Cup final last season.
In a tweet on his personal page after the match, Shearer wrote: “Toon absolutely dominated. Great performance from start to finish from every player. A team playing to win titles, The other team was a complete mess.”
Man United will now hope to get back to their winning ways when they face Fulham in the Premier League this weekend. Then they will have a rematch against Copenhagen in the Champions League, where MU needs to win to keep hope of continuing.
