Defending Champions Ready for Action
Manchester United enters the competition as the defending champions, with Erik ten Hag’s formidable side triumphing over Newcastle in the final at Wembley in February 2023.
Their path to glory in the previous edition featured impressive victories against Aston Villa, Burnley, Charlton Athletic, and Nottingham Forest.
The Red Devils have etched their name on the League Cup trophy six times before, and this season, they’re eager to secure a remarkable seventh title.
While the Carabao Cup unfolds, some prominent teams have already bowed out. Tottenham faced an early exit in the second round, and Brighton, along with Aston Villa, also tasted elimination. Most notably, Manchester City suffered a shocking 1-0 defeat to Newcastle, who now gear up for an exciting visit to Old Trafford.
As the competition progresses, stalwarts like Arsenal, Liverpool, Newcastle, and West Ham continue to vie for glory. The presence of Chelsea, though in somewhat unique circumstances, adds another layer of intrigue to the mix.
The Carabao Cup is far from short on drama, promising fans an exhilarating journey toward crowning the next champion.
