The first major domestic trophy of the season, the Carabao Cup. Having won the first leg of their semi-final at the City Ground, five-time winners Manchester United secured their place in the final with a relatively routine second-leg win at Old Trafford. Despite going into half-time goalless, goals from Anthony Martial and Fred wrapped the tie up with a 5-0 aggregate win over Steve Cooper’s Forest side.

Newcastle became the first team to reach the final, with their 3-1 aggregate win in the semi-final over Southampton.  Goals from Sean Longstaff at St James’ Park in the second leg were enough to give Eddie Howe’s side a 3-1 win over two legs, following their 1-0 victory at St Mary’s Stadium the previous week. It is Newcastle United’s first major cup final since 1999, when they reached the FA Cup final, but lost to Manchester United.

The two clubs are receiving an allocation of 867 seats in the new standing area at the stadium, located behind each goal, in both the East and West Stands. In these areas, supporters are allowed to safely stand in the allocated spaces behind a banner or a rail, which prevents them from falling forward. In all other areas of the ground, fans must remain seated.
