Manchester United and Newcastle continue in the League Cup

Record champions Manchester United and the nouveau riche Newcastle United have reached the semi-finals of the English League Cup. The Red Devils defeated the third division Charlton Athletic 3-0 (1-0) with some youngsters in the starting XI, Newcastle prevailed 2-0 (0-0) against former champions Leicester City.

The Brazilian Antony (21st) and the in-form English international striker Marcus Rashford (90th, 90th + 4) shot ManUnited to their sixth win in their sixth competitive game after the World Cup break.

Newcastle, who have been in Saudi Arabian hands for a good year and are on the rise in terms of sport, scored well-deserved goals through Dan Burn (60′) and former Hoffenheimer Joelinton (72′).

On Wednesday, the four first-division teams Nottingham Forest will battle Wolverhampton Wanderers and champions Manchester City at FC Southampton for further semi-final places.

The final will take place at Wembley Stadium in London on February 26. The winner of the EFL Cup will receive a starting place in the Europa League in the coming season.
