Newcastle United face Manchester United tonight in the Carabao Cup.

It's a replay of last season's Carabao Cup final as Newcastle travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United.

The Magpies will be hoping for a better result this time around as Newcastle fell to a 2-0 defeat in the Wembley final.

Both squads are suffering from an injury crisis

Both managers are under pressure right now with Eddie Howe facing an injury crisis and has an extremely depleted squad to choose from.

Erik ten Hag has similar issues with injuries, but it's more the recent team selection and resulting performances that have Ten Hag potentially facing the sack.

Tonight's game is going to be a tense affair with both teams almost impossible to predict and therefore the outcome is a tough one to call.

Jamie Carragher thinks Newcastle will be knocked out of the Carabao Cup tonight

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has had his say on who will win tonight on, and it doesn't make good reading for the Toon Army.

"I’m going to go for Manchester United. I know United have got a lot of injuries at the moment, but I think if they can get a few back for that, they’ve still got a deeper squad than Newcastle. I think both teams will make changes, but I think home advantage and I think Manchester United will just get through."

We can't call this one because of the issues Newcastle are facing. Maybe we'll have more of an idea of the outcome when we see the team sheets, but we can see what Carragher is saying, we just hope he's wrong.
