‘Go one better’, Eddie Howe sends cup warning after Newcastle United’s big night at Old Trafford

Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe has hailed his side’s mentality after sweeping his way past Manchester United to reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals for the second season in a row. Howe made eight changes to his team to face Man United but the Magpies delivered one of their best performances of the season.

Last week’s 1-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund suddenly felt like a mere blip. After the game, Howe said: “It was a very good performance from us. The mentality was brilliant.

“We had injuries and picked one up early. “It was a great response. Without the players committing to what we want, we’ve got no chance. “This is a really tough place to come to score the goals we did at the time we did.”

After leading his team to the last eight again, Howe said: “We hope to go one better than last season. You can’t go too far away. We return to the Premier League with Arsenal. “I know we have a tough schedule ahead and we look forward to it.”

Howe hailed the players who came in and done a job at one of the toughest venues for Newcastle in the last 52 years. He said: “Emil Krafth coming back after such a long absence. He was committed with Paul Dummett. Willock was brilliant and Livramento.”
