Throughout the years, ‘The Red Devils’ and ‘The Magpies’ have solidified their places among football’s most well-supported teams.

The two clubs have shared a fierce rivalry. Who could forget Kevin Keegan’s famous rant in 1996, in which he shrieked: “I’d love it if we beat them. Love it.” Or perhaps you’ll remember United triumphing over the Geordies in the 1999 FA Cup Final, which featured as part of the team’s treble-winning year.

Thus, Newcastle is going into the match with vengeance on the mind. They last competed in the Carabao Cup Final 47 years ago, back in 1976, giving them added motivation to finally cross the line.

Furthermore, with the new investment from their multi-billionaire owners, the fans are expecting big things. But to win the competition, they’ll have to overcome a resurgent United led by Dutch genius Erik ten Hag.

On paper, this game looks guaranteed to deliver, so we’ve gathered all the information you need, below.
