Newcastle wary of United stars

Trippier has now taken stock of the match and singled out four 'unbelievable' Man United players who could deny Newcastle their first trophy in 68 years.

Top on the Magpies captain's list is Marcus Rashford, who has been in terrific form, especially after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“I know Marcus very well. I’m really happy for him because I’ve always known how unbelievable he is and he’s certainly hit some form," Trippier told Chronicle Live.
“But it’s not about one individual - you’ve got Bruno Fernandes, Casemiro, Luke Shaw, who’s been unbelievable this season as well," he added.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are also facing their own challenges ahead of the tie, with Nick Pope set to miss the clash due to suspension.

Sports Brief has also reported that Pope's red card against Liverpool over the weekend put a dent into Newcastle's season.

For a club that had done so well this term and surpassed all its expectations, the sending-off felt like ten steps backwards

Were it not for the superb job Mikel Arteta had done in north London, Howe could easily have been the coach of the season.
