Newcastle United beat Manchester United 3-0 at home in the fourth round of the League Cup. On Wednesday, United’s terrible start to the season took a big turn for the worse.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, looked shocked as his team was booed off the pitch. The Dutchman is under a lot of pressure after his team lost 3-0 to Manchester City at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Ten Hag told Sky Sports, “We know it’s not good enough.” “It’s our fault, and I’m responsible for it.” I feel bad for the fans because we don’t put on a show.
Newcastle led 2-0 at halftime thanks to goals from Miguel Almiron and Lewis Hall. They then added to their lead through Joe Willock to easily make it to the quarterfinals. This was a rematch of this year’s final at Wembley, which Manchester United won 2-0.
In the 28th minute, Tino Livramento won the ball and set up Almiron to score. The Paraguayan then slid the ball past Andre Onana, who was playing goalie.
Eight minutes later, Hall doubled the lead by volleying into the far corner after a bad clearance. Around the hour mark, Willock broke through the defence and put his shot into the bottom corner, making things even worse for the home crowd.
“I think the spirit of the group just showed in the performance, in how well they worked together,” Eddie Howe, manager of the Magpies, said.
“This is a really tough place to come and to score the goals we did at the times we did and just the manner of the performance really pleased me.”
United have lost eight of their last fifteen games across all categories. They have also lost five of their first ten home games, which is the first time since 1930–31 that they have done that. For the first time ever, they’ve lost five of their first ten Premier League games.
There were three goals in West Ham United’s 3-1 win over Arsenal. Mohammed Kudus scored two, Jarrod Bowen scored one, and defender Ben White scored an own goal.
“I’m really upset, and I’m to blame,” Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, told Sky Sports. “It was not good enough. We didn’t fight well enough. In general, we didn’t even come close to the level we needed to show.
Martin Odegaard scored a goal in the 96th minute, but it was too little, too late for the road team.
Liverpool beat Bournemouth 2-1 thanks to goals from Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez. Liverpool has won the Premier League a record nine times. It was Nunez’s third goal in his last three games for the Reds.
Blackburn Rovers lost to Chelsea 2-0, Everton beat Burnley 3-0, and Fulham beat Ipswich Town 3-1 in the Championship.
The worst team left is League One’s Port Vale, who beat Mansfield Town 1-0 on Tuesday. Also, Middlesbrough made it to the last eight by beating Exeter City 3-2.
