Manchester United won 3-0 in the first leg. Nonetheless, coach Ten Hag was not vigilant. Under the 4-3-3 formation, key players such as Boot Verhost, Anthony, Fred, Casemiro, Bruno Fernández, Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, and Rafael Varane started the game with their names on the starting list.
After entering the second half, the game was decided. In the 28th minute of the second half, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, who were brought in as substitutes, made a joint effort and scored the opening goal. In the 31st minute of the second half, after going through Bruno and Rashford this time, Fred shook the net and the gap widened. In the end, Manchester United defeated Nottingham to advance to the final.
After the end of last season, Manchester United started to make a new plan by appointing Ten Hag, who stood out at Ajax. In the summer, Anthony, Casemiro, Martinez, Christian Eriksen, and Tyrell Malacia were brought in, and in the winter, Verhost and Marcel Sabitzer were brought in on loan to reinforce their strength.
Normally, it takes time for a new leadership system to see the light of day, but manager Ten Haag is on the verge of proving himself in one season. Man Utd has been on a long run since winning the UEFA Europa League (UEL) in the 2016-17 season, but expectations are rising with the EFL Cup victory on the horizon.
After the game, Ten Haag said: “It’s good to be in the final, but the goal is to win. It motivates us a lot and we want to bring it back. We have a great squad, so we demand high standards. We are Manchester United and we have to live up to expectations.” Man Utd challenges to win the EFL Cup against Newcastle, backed by oil money.
