Manchester United Fans Celebrate EFL Cup Final Win On Twitter

Manchester United fans across the country and the world celebrated as their team defeated Newcastle United in the final of the League Cup, which saw the Red Devils win their first major trophy since 2017.

Statisically, the game was fairly close – but United were far more composed in front of goal. A header from Casemiro opened the scoring, followed by a deflected effort from Marcus Rashford six minutes later.

Newcastle were stunned and couldn’t find a reponse. In the end, United were good value for their victory, leaving the Toon without a major trophy since 1955.

United fans seemed unsure who was deserving of the most praise. Some gave the lion’s’ share to Erik Ten Hag for his canny substitutions and composed demeanour on the touchline, while others gave it to Casemiro for his man of the match performance.

Casemiro was fantastic in the game against the Magpies. The Brazilian dictated the play from deep, while fearlessly breaking up any Newcastle attacks through the centre. His tireless performance was crucial to United’s defensive integrity.

Ten Hag also got everything spot on. One particularly smart move was to substitute Diogo Dalot for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at half time – the Portuguese full back was playing well, but had picked up a booking. At 2-0, Ten Hag figured it would be a good idea to bring on a more defensive minded right back in his place.

Regardless of who deserves most of the credit – the millions of United fans across the globe will be elated with the result and the performance and Erik ten Hag has proven he is a top class manager and he deserves all the praise he is getting as he now has a real team on his hands and the future looks bright.

United will be ready to take advantage of Arsenal and City if they slip up but you know the United boss will keep the players’ feet firmly planted on the ground.
