Carabao Cup: Newcastle Utd Defeat Southampton To Book First

Newcastle United

Newcastle United booked their place in the first major final in 24 years with a 2-1 win over Southampton in the League Cup semi-final second leg. 

The victory secured a 3-1 aggregate win, and the Magpies will face either Manchester United or Nottingham Forest in the final at Wembley. 


This will be their first final since losing to United in the 1999 FA Cup and their second appearance in the League Cup final, having lost to Manchester City in 1976. They will be bidding to win their first trophy since the 1955 FA Cup.

Midfielder Sean Longstaff opened the scoring in the 5th minute with his first goal at St. James' Park in almost four years. He struck again in the 21st minute, finishing off a team move sparked by Joe Willock.

Southampton's Che Adams gave the team some hope with a first-half goal after a sloppy backpass by Willock. However, in the second half, Adam Armstrong's chance to level the score was thwarted by the goalkeeper, Nick Pope.

Newcastle midfielder, Bruno Guimaraes, was sent off in the 82nd minute after a VAR review for a studs-up tackle on Samuel Edozie. Guimaraes will serve a three-match ban in the league but will be eligible to play in the cup final on Feb. 26.
