Manchester United scored its first victory under the leadership of coach Erik ten Hag, defeating Newcastle 2-0 at the iconic Wembley Stadium and securing the title.
Brazilian player Casemiro was the standout in the “Red Devils” triumph, delivering a spectacular performance. Playing as a defensive midfielder, he was responsible for disarming all opponents in the midfield.
In addition, Casemiro scored the first goal of the final at 33 minutes. This goal seemed to have shaken Newcastle’s team, allowing Manchester United to score the second goal shortly after and secure the victory in the match.
At 39 minutes, Rashford received the ball in the area and attempted to cross it. The ball ended up deflecting off the foot of defender Botman, fooling goalkeeper Karius, who was already diving in the opposite direction. The referee ended up awarding the goal as an own goal by Botman. In the second half, Newcastle brought on forward Isak and attacked Manchester United, creating good opportunities to score, especially with Brazilian player Joelinton.
Despite Newcastle’s attempts to narrow the score, Manchester United managed to hold onto their lead until the end of the match, with impressive performances by Casemiro, goalkeeper De Gea, and defender Lisandro Martinez. With this victory, the Red Devils secured their sixth title in the English League, the first since the 2016/17 season, when the coach was still Jose Mourinho.
The triumph ends a period of almost six years without major titles for the Red Devils, with their last significant victory being in the Carabao Cup 2016/17.
