Manchester United resume their ongoing quest for more silverware on Wednesday night after breaking their trophy hoodoo in the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle.

Goals from Casemiro and Marcus Rashford – which was contested at the time due to a heavy deflection from Sven Botman en route – settled the scores as Erik ten Hag and his players ticked off the first challenge in what would be an unprecedented quadruple.

West Ham are next up for United at Old Trafford in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday night (7.45pm).

Off the field, meanwhile, there is plenty of talk regarding the proposed takeover as the Glazer family considers two public offers for their shares. Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari banker Sheikh Jasim bin Hamad Al Thani swooped in before the soft deadline with formal approaches to purchase the Premier League club.

United also have one eye on the summer transfer window as they target a long-term striker with Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen on their radar. Other tentative links to potential targets include Jeremie Frimpong and Chelsea star Mason Mount amid stalled talks over his contract extension.
