Manchester United vs Newcastle live stream: match preview

Manchester United and Newcastle meet at Wembley today for a highly-anticipated Carabao Cup final. Both these sides are enjoying brilliant seasons so far, battling it out for a place in the Premier League's top four, but which one will raise the first domestic trophy of the season?

Manchester United breezed past Nottingham Forest in the semi-final, winning 3-0 at the City Ground and 2-0 in the home leg, but Erik ten Hag's side have been impressive throughout their run to the last two. The only goals they've conceded so far in the competition came in the opening 4-2 win over Aston Villa back in November, and one of those was an own-goal scored by Diogo Dalot. Since then, the Red Devils have also seen off Burnley and Charlton, but the high-flying Magpies will provide the toughest test of the lot.

There are two changes to the side that knocked Barcelona out of the Europa League in midweek, with Diogo Dalot replacing Aaron Wan-Bissaka at full-back, and Antony preferred to Jadon Sancho on the wing.

Eddie Howe's Newcastle have played a game more than their opponents to reach this stage, knocking out League Two side Tranmere way back in August. Between then and the second leg of their semi-final meeting with Southampton last month the Magpies have also managed to keep multiple clean sheets, with Che Adams finally breaching Nick Pope's goal when the Saints were already 3-0 down on aggregate. It sets up a compelling Carabao Cup final under the arch at Wembley that could well go all the way to penalties.

With Nick Pope serving a ban and Martin Dubravka cup-tied, Loris Karius starts in goal for Newcastle today, while Bruno Guimarães returns to the midfield after his suspension. Callum Wilson gets the nod over Isak in attack. 

Manchester United vs Newcastle kicks off at 4.30pm GMT / 11.30am ET today, Sunday 26th February, at Wembley. Make sure you know how to watch a Manchester United vs Newcastle live stream.
