WEMBLEY STADIUM, LONDON — Manchester United and Newcastle United face off at Wembley Stadium today in the 2022/23 Carabao Cup final. The Red Devils have the advantage in at halftime thanks to Casemiro’s thumping header, which gave stand-in goalkeeper Loris Karius little chance. Marcus Rashford then managed to squeeze in a second goal, his shot deflecting over the former Liverpool keeper, who couldn’t react in time to make the save. The goal has been given an as own goal from Sven Botman. Sporting News is providing live updates and highlights from the match at Wembley Stadium. Man United vs Newcastle score   1H 2H Final Man United 2 2 — Newcastle 0 0 — Goals: MAN UNITED — Casemiro — 33 mins             MAN UNITED — Sven Botman OG — 39 mins Man United vs Newcastle live updates, highlights 88 mins: MURPHY! Goodness me. With nobody closing him down, Newcastle’s No.23 hits a swerving shot from 30 yards out that completely bamboozles David de Gea, but it flies wide of the right-hand post. 87 mins: Aaron Wan-Bissaka tries a shot from Jadon Sancho’s lay-off, which is straight at Loris Karius. He then races back into his own half to stop a Newcastle counter-attack. 84 mins: Jadon Sancho is on for Antony, who was beginning to look leggy. David de Gea is booked for time-wasting at a goal kick. Man United are doing what they can to see this one out. 81 mins: Two promising Man United breaks have broken down due to poor passes from Bruno Fernandes, which is not something you would expect. Newcastle are still pushing as we enter the final 10 minutes at Wembley. 79 mins: Allan Saint-Maximin and Bruno Guimaraes are taken off for Joe Willock and Jacob Murphy. They were two of Newcastle’s brighter attacking players, so Eddie Howe can’t have made that decision lightly. 74 mins: Chance for Marcus Rashford! A brilliant tackle from Marcel Sabitzer sets up a Man United break, Rashford has a go with his right foot from 25 yards out, but Loris Karius gets behind the shot to keep it out. 72 mins: A clever pass from Bruno Guimaraes send Kieran Trippier into space behind the Man United defence, but he’s comfortably offside. Bruno Fernandes tells off the assistant referee for not flagging sooner. Lisandro Martinez was treated in the first half after suffering a head injury. He stayed in the match, and is still putting his body on the line for every challenge. FEARLESS 😤 pic.twitter.com/5TRKmHZ8HQ — ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) February 26, 2023 67 mins: Newcastle are stepping up the pressure! Lisandro Martinez makes a good block after Man United failed to clear their own box. A foul is awarded to the Red Devils from the resulting corner. Erik ten Hag is now making two changes: off come Fred (on a yellow card) and Wout Weghorst, with Scott McTominay and Marcel Sabitzer their replacements. 63 mins: Man United seem happy to let Newcastle try to take the game to them. At the moment, David de Gea has not been tested in this half. 59 mins: Bruno Guimaraes blocks a Bruno Fernandes clearance and immediately calls for attention, holding his lower right leg. He’s going to try to continue, but it looked like that hurt his ankle. 56 mins: Newcastle fans are trying to give their players some encouragement, but there are some empty seats in the Magpies section (albeit not many). It looks like a handful of fans decided at halftime that this contest was over. 51 mins: Alexander Isak has brought some positive running to the Newcastle attack. He finds Allan Saint-Maximin out wide, who squares up Aaron Wan-Bissaka but shanks his attempted cross behind for a goal kick. 47 mins: A positive start to the half from Man United, with Fred rolling a shot wide and Antony firing another into Loris Karius’ midriff. Newcastle surely can’t afford to fall three goals behind… 46 mins: Newcastle bring on striker Alexander Isak for Sean Longstaff. Man United unsurprisingly take off Diogo Dalot, who was on a yellow card, for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. And we’re back underway at Wembley… HT: Of course, Newcastle can take some hope from the last time Man United were in this final, when they let a 2-0 lead slip against Southampton and needed Zlatan Ibrahimovic to rescue the win with a late goal. If the Magpies can get one back, this could become very interesting. HT: The half ends with Man United comfortably in the lead. The second goal in particular has rather killed the spirit of the Newcastle fans, and the players look like they need a pick-me-up from their manager. Joelinton’s rash pull-back on Casemiro at the end of the half summed up their frustrations. 45 + 2 mins: Good save from Loris Karius! Antony does brilliantly in the Man United half and Casemiro sends it long for Wout Weghorst. He tries a curling, left-footed shot from the edge of the area, which is superbly tipped over the bar by the Newcastle keeper. 39 mins: IT’S A SECOND FOR MAN UNITED! It had to be Marcus Rashford! After combining well with Wout Weghorst, he runs at Sven Botman and hits it low left-footed. The shot deflects up off the defender’s foot and Loris Karius can’t react quickly enough to stop the ball looping over him and into the net.

Luke Shaw’s free-kick from the left wing is right on the money, and Casemiro meets it to head past the despairing Loris Karius. VAR checks for offside, but the goal stands.

Sean Longstaff’s cross misses everyone but is picked up by Allan Saint-Maximin. He skips past Diogo Dalot, who dare not commit to a challenge, but De Gea sticks out an arm to deny him from close range. 29 mins: They’ve been patched up and it looks like both will continue. 26 mins: Man United haven’t really got Marcus Rashford into the action yet, aside from that early foray forwards. He’s also not doing too much defensively, and that’s just allowed Kieran Trippier to send in a good cross. Fabian Schar and Lisandro Martinez went up for the ball and collided, and each is receiving treatment now. It doesn’t look too good for Schar in particular. 22 mins: Bruno Guimaraes is down receiving some treatment. He doesn’t look too despondent, so no need to worry just yet, Newcastle fans. Indeed, he’s back on his feet now. Newcastle United fans in full force at Wembley 😂👏 pic.twitter.com/ulAvcWNUd7 — ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) February 26, 2023 19 mins: Wrong choice from Casemiro! Antony makes a good tackle and Casemiro brings the ball forward, but he chooses to pass left to the marked Marcus Rashford rather than back to his compatriot in space. Antony now seems to be wincing with an apparent groin problem. 16 mins: A good pass from Casemiro frees Antony, who finds Diogo Dalot in the box. He fires in a dangerous cross that Fabian Schar does well to intercept. 13 mins: A first shot on target comes from Wout Weghorst, who manages to twist in the Newcastle box but can only scuff a shot safely into the arms of Loris Karius. The Magpies’ stand-in goalkeeper will be happy with a comfortable early save. Watch Karius save from Weghorst (UK): — Sky Sports Football (@SkyFootball) February 26, 2023 10 mins: Bruno Guimaraes hasn’t wasted any time getting stuck back into things after that three-game ban. His battle with Bruno Fernandes for superiority in the middle could be key. Meanwhile, there’s an early issue for Man United as Diogo Dalot is booked for a foul on Allan Saint-Maximin. He’ll need to be careful now. 5 mins: It’s been a combative start here at Wembley! Man United had an opening through Marcus Rashford but Dan Burn covered well. 10 mins before KO: Man United put a scarf on each of their allocated seats so that fans would have a more long-term keepsake from the match. They are also argued to be more environmentally friendly than flags. One thing they are not, on this evidence, is more visually impressive. — Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) February 26, 2023 30 mins before KO: The atmosphere is building nicely with half an hour to go until kickoff. There are more black-and-white shirts in the ground at the moment, but we’re expecting both allocations to be full to the rafters (if Wembley had any rafters). 1hr before KO: The team news is in. Erik ten Hag makes two changes from the team that beat Barcelona on Thursday: Jadon Sancho and Aaron Wan-Bissaka drop out, and in come Antony, who scored the winner against Barca, and Diogo Dalot. — Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 26, 2023 Newcastle do indeed start Loris Karius in goal for his first senior appearance in around two years. Bruno Guimaraes is straight back in the side after returning from suspension. — Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) February 26, 2023 1 hr 30 before KO: This is often considered the lesser of the major trophies in England, but this season’s Carabao Cup final seems to have particular importance for the two clubs involved. Each is on the up, buoyed by a manager with whom the fans have engaged, and a win here would feel like a stepping stone to bigger and better achievements. And the idea of losing today just doesn’t bear thinking about. 2 hrs before KO: Wembley Way is already in full voice ahead of the first major final of the 2022/23 season in England.

In a bizarre twist of irony, Dubravka cannot play in the final due his Carabao Cup appearances on loan at Old Trafford earlier this season, meaning former Liverpool stopper Loris Karius makes his first start in almost two years. Key midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is back from his own suspension with Joelinton winning his battle to be fit on time to start at Wembley. Joe Willock is on the bench.
