However, Sunday’s opponents shouldn’t be overlooked. Eddie Howe’s Newcastle have enjoyed a tremendous season and have an opportunity to underscore their progress with a first domestic trophy since 1955. They last reached the final of this tournament in 1976. Getting their Geordie mitts on the trophy would finally end that hoodoo.

Unfortunately for Newcastle, they’ll have to do it without goalkeeper Nick Pope. The England stopper, who has arguably been the Magpies’ best player of the season, was sent off against Liverpool last weekend and is suspended for this tie.

The former Liverpool keeper Loris Karius is expected to take his place. The last time we saw Karius he was enduring a nightmare as Liverpool lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League final. He’s been in the wilderness ever since. What a chance for redemption this is.

It’s shaping up to be a memorable League Cup final between two of this season’s success stories. Here’s how to watch Man United vs Newcastle on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
