Manchester United and Newcastle United are set to meet at Wembley to contest the first major domestic final of the season.

It has been nearly six years since the Red Devils lifted a trophy and taking home the Carabao Cup would be reward for the significant progress being made under Erik ten Hag’s management.

The Magpies are in their first final since 1999 and Eddie Howe is plotting to end the club’s long, long wait for a major piece of silverware, but a goalkeeper crisis has provided an unwanted headache heading into the big match.

Man Utd v Newcastle team news

Marcus Rashford suffered a knock to his ankle in Thursday’s win against Barcelona and is a doubt for Manchester United.

Antony is battling to earn a place in the XI after scoring off the bench, Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are confirmed injury absentees while Anthony Martial has lost his race to bounce back to fitness.

Ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Lloris Karius is likely to make his Newcastle debut as Nick Pope is suspended and former United loanee Martin Dubravka is cup-tied.

January signing Anthony Gordon is also cup-tied, Emil Krafth is a long-term absentee but Joelinton and Joe Willock should shake off knocks to be available.

Man Utd predicted lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst

Newcastle predicted lineup: Karius; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin

Man Utd v Newcastle prediction

Crouchy: It’ll be a huge day for Newcastle, it’s been far too long since they’ve had a day like this. It’ll be a fantastic watch but you have to fancy Manchester United.

I think Newcastle are ahead of schedule and they’re having an incredible season. Defensively they look so solid and they’ve got players who can hurt you. The Liverpool result was a bad one but I don’t think anyone expected them to be doing as well as they are. I don’t think they’ll tail off and it looks like a huge fight for 4th place.

The Toon Army would have bitten your hand off if you’d have told them they would be in a cup final and in the top four race

I do think Manchester United will lift the trophy on Sunday, as much as I want Newcastle United to do it. It’s a proper footballing city, proper footballing club, it’s a club that I would love to see win it, but my head’s ruling my heart here and I think Manchester United will win it.
