Eric ten Hag‘s time at Manchester United could soon be coming to an end. His side have now suffered two 3-0 defeats in back-to-back matches in the Manchester derby and now against Newcastle United in the EFL Cup.
This game was where Newcastle avenged their defeat in last year’s competition’s final. That trophy was one of ten Hag’s highlights, but it is now gone for this season.
Miguel Almiron put the Magpies in front before Lewis Hall doubled their advantage before half-time with a volley into the bottom corner.
Joe Willock sealed their victory when he fired in from outside the box. Eddie Howe‘s side will face Chelsea next in the quarter-finals.
Much of the talk before this game was whether Declan Rice would get a good reception from the West Ham United fans at the London Stadium. The man returning in the colours of Arsenal had some applause but there were plenty of booing.
Ben White scored an own-goal to give West Ham the lead before Mohammed Kudus made it two with a great strike. Rice was then introduced to try and turn the tie around. However, Jarrod Bowen had a deflected strike go in which all but sealed the victory.
Martin Odegaard scored a consolation goal to make it 3-1 but the Gunners are out. The Hammers will play Liverpool next in the competition.

Middlesbrough came from a goal down to defeat Exeter City 3-2. Morgan Rogers, Sam Silvera and Emmanuel Latte Lath got the goals for Michael Carrick‘s side.
Boro will take on the lowest-ranked side in the completion next in Port Vale who defeated Mansfield Town to make it to the quarter-finals. The other tie will see Everton take on Fulham.
The quarter-finals of the EFL Cup will take place the week of December 19.
