Guimaraes comes back on. Man United are winning 2-0 at Wembley as we approach the hour-mark.

Guimaraes slides into a challenge with Bruno Fernandes. He goes rolling around and it looks like it's an ankle issue he has.

It goes short to Shaw, who whips it into the box. Weghorst's header is saved easily by Karius.

It's a GOAL!

Manchester United take the lead!

It's going to VAR!

Shaw sends in an exceptional ball from the left and Casemiro sends his glancing header past Karius.



Newcastle put together a good move. The ball then falls to Saint-Maximin at the back post. He shoots, but De Gea saves. It's a brilliant stop by the Spaniard.

Schar and Martínez are still down. Schar seems to have come out the worse of the pair.

The camera turns to Sir Alex Ferguson, who is on his phone. He must be checking the score in the Old Firm game.

Schar and Martínez have collided in the air and are both down getting treatment. It's a clash of heads in the 6-yard box.

The ball falls to Trippier on the right. He crosses to Schar, who heads over the bar.

Guimaraes is down getting treatment for Newcastle.

Fred wins a free for Manchester United on the halfway line. He scored for United in their 2-1 win over Barcelona on Thursday night. They will play Real Betis in the last 16 of the Europa League on 9 March and 16 March.

Casemiro wins the ball back and then plays it forward but Trippier intercepts it. Casemiro has brought so much to this United side since joining from Real Madrid.

Dalot fires it across goal but Guimaraes clears it away. Anthony plays the right-back in down the line. Newcastle have been the better side but that is better from Ten Hag's side.

Weghorst shoots!

The Dutch striker shoots straight at Karius from just inside the box. It's not his best effort but it's United's best chance of the game so far. 0-0

Eddie Howe will be pleased with how his side have started here, full of intensity and the right amount of aggression.

The last time Newcastle won a major trophy was in 1969, while Manchester United are attempting to lift their first silverware under Erik ten Hag and first trophy since 2017.

It has been end-to-end so far but remains goalless in London.

Guimaraes goes to shoot on the edge of the box. He tries to shoot but Fred gets in the way and Guimaraes kicks him. Fred goes down. Ten Hag is having a word with Anthony. So many Brazilians!

Trippier vs Rashford will be an intriguing duel today.

It has been a frantic start at Wembley. Almirón goes racing down Newcastle's left but United handle it having been done on the break.

Joelinton heads the corner away!

Rashford gets away down the left and plays a first-time pass into the middle but Botman reads it and it goes out for a corner.

Manchester United played on Thursday, whereas Newcastle have had a week to prepare for this one.

Manchester United are playing from right to left as we watch it. 

Both sides are wearing their home kits.

We're underway at Wembley!

The teams are out on the pitch at Wembley and what an atmosphere we have here!

1999 FA Cup final

Newcastle were beaten by Manchester United in the 1999 FA Cup final. The 1999 final was the club's last and they return to Wembley 24 years later.

Today, the Magpies will be attempting to win their first major trophy in almost 54 years, with their most recent coming in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1969.

What an atmosphere!

The Geordies have travelled in their numbers!

Kickoff is just 15 minutes away!

Rashford starts for United

Marcus Rashford was a doubt for Sunday’s final after he sustained a knock to his ankle against Barcelona in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Rashford does start today at Wembley and has scored 24 goals for United this season - the best season of his career to date.

Today's teams!

Here are the teams!

Debut for Karius

Loris Karius will make his first appearance since 28 February 2021 in a Bundesliga match for Union Berlin, 728 days ago.

Not many players make their club debut in a final but Karius has been handed a start with the two first-choice keepers out.

Ten Hag sits down with Ferguson

Erik ten Hag is spending time with Manchester United’s legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

As the Dutch coach continues to grow into his role at Old Trafford, he was spotted having dinner with Sir Alex in Wilmslow, Cheshire earlier this week.

Ten Hag was asked about meeting Ferguson at a pre-match press conference ahead of the Europa League second leg with Barcelona on Thursday and spoke about having him as a sounding board.

“It’s massive. I always enjoy it, to speak with people who have a lot of knowledge, a lot of experience,” Ten Hag said.

“He wants to share it, he wants to help, he wants to support. You feel Manchester United is his club, he feels so committed. He wants [to see] that we are doing well.

“It was a great night and I look forward to the next night with him.”

Ferguson will no doubt be in attendance today as the club look to win their first trophy under Ten Hag.

Manchester United beat Barcelona

Manchester United advanced to the last 16 of the Europa League with a 2-1 win over Barcelona at Old Trafford on Thursday.

The Old Trafford outfit won 4-3 on aggregate and will play Real Betis on 9 March and 16 March for a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

It's a busy time period for the club, who will be delighted with how things are currently going under Erik ten Hag.

Ten Hag: Newcastle are annoying

Erik ten Hag has described today's opponents Newcastle as “annoying”.

The Dutch coach believes Eddie Howe’s side time-waste and warned his players and the match officials about their tactics.

“I think it’s a great team with a clear philosophy about how they want to play the game,” Ten Hag said.

“The key word is intensity. They do really well. They’re an annoying team to play against, so we have to find a way to win. They try to annoy you. We have to make sure that we play our game and we focus on our game.”

Howe: "This could be decided on very small margins"

“It’s all set up to be a great game,” Newcastle boss Eddie Howe said pre-match.

“The game against them at Old Trafford was like that.

“We hit the woodwork two or three times. They had chances to score as well.

“It was a very tight game and this could be decided on very small margins. We need to make sure we’re on the right side of it.

“I’ve got no doubt that both clubs will treat the game with the same importance and are both desperate to win. I don’t think there will be any other thought from both sets of players or both coaches. I think it will make for a great game because everyone will be desperate to lift the trophy.”

The teams have arrived

Kickoff at Wembley is just under an hour away!

Pope out

Newcastle are goalkeeper Nick Pope after his Premier League red card against Liverpool.

Second-choice keeper Martin Dubravka is cup-tied having played on loan at Manchester United earlier in the season.

Former Liverpool shot-stopper Loris Karius starts in goal.

New Newcastle signing Anthony Gordon is also cup-tied, but Bruno Guimaraes is available after a recent red card.

Newcastle XI

Loris Karius starts in goal for the Magpies with Nick Pope suspended.

Man Utd XI

Marcus Rashford, who was a doubt for the final, starts for United.

Ten Hag makes two changes from the team that beat Barcelona on Thursday, with Dalot and Anthony starting.

Pre-match stroll

The Newcastle players are out on the Wembley turf ahead of the warm-up.

Sunday’s game will represent Manchester United’s 53rd at Wembley – at least 11 more than any other team, while they will bring up 10 EFL Cup final appearances, with only Liverpool (13) bettering that tally.

They will hope Newcastle’s dreadful record at the national stadium continues, with the Magpies’ eight-match losing streak at Wembley the longest in the venue’s history.

Fans travel to Wembley

It hasn't been easy to find a ticket today!
Carabao Cup triumph would help put Man Utd ‘where they belong’, says Antony

Brazilian forward Antony says victory for the Red Devils in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final would represent a crucial step towards putting the club “back where it belongs”.

United are bidding to end a six-year trophy drought when they face Newcastle United at Wembley Stadium, having last lifted major silverware when they won an EFL Cup and Europa League double under Jose Mourinho in 2017.

“When I came here, I said that Manchester United is a huge club and we’re going to put this club back where it belongs – fighting for and winning trophies,” he told the club’s website.

Who will come out on top?

The last time Newcastle won a major trophy was in 1969, while Manchester United are attempting to lift their first silverware under Erik ten Hag and first trophy since 2017.

The sides met at Old Trafford in October, a match that ended in a 0-0 draw.

I can see this one being won by a narrow margin. Both teams have seen serious improvement this season under their respective coaches.

Calm before the storm

The fans have gathered on the streets of London. Both sets of supporters have travelled south in large numbers but inside the dressing rooms, it is currently a lot quieter as the kitmen lay out the jerseys and the players get ready for their warm-ups.

Cup final day!
