Manchester United is on the verge of winning for the first time in a long time.
Manchester United will play the 2022-23 League Cup (Carabao Cup) final against Newcastle at Wembley Stadium in London, England at 1:30 am (Korean time) on the 27th. Manchester United is challenging to win an additional championship cup six years after winning the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) in the 2016-17 season.
Manchester United are the only English team to have an open chance of winning all four competitions this season. First, in the English Premier League (EPL), it is ranked third with 49 points, following Arsenal (57 points) and Manchester City (55 points). Manchester United have played one less game than Manchester City. 먹튀검증
Also, Manchester United defeated FC Barcelona in the Europa League round of 16 playoffs. In the FA Cup, they beat Reading 3-1 and advanced to the round of 16. The opponent in the round of 16 is local rivals Man City. And in the League Cup, the final against Newcastle is ahead.
Speaking at the official press conference for the League Cup final, Manchester United manager Eric Ten Haag said, “It is difficult to see it as a successful season yet. He said, “This League Cup final is an opportunity to achieve success.”
There is good news for Manchester United. This is because the opposing team, Newcastle, has to appoint third-choice goalkeeper Loris Karius. Karius is a player who has not played a single game this season. First-choice goalkeeper Nick Pope is out due to a sent off. Second-choice goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is unable to play in the League Cup for Newcastle, as he has a record of appearing in the League Cup as a Manchester United loan player in the first half.
Karius has not played an official match for two years, ending on February 28, 2021. Karius, who was playing for German Union Berlin at the time, returned to Liverpool from Union Berlin in June 2021. After returning to Liverpool, he did not receive a chance to play for a year and chose to transfer to Liverpool as a free agent (FA).
In fact, Karius, who has a two-year gap, can be a target for Manchester United. However, manager Ten Haag said, “(Karius appearance) is not an advantage for Manchester United. It’s a matter for Newcastle to care, not Man United.”
