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.”
