  • Goals from Miguel Almiron, Lewis Hall and Joe Willock got the job done for Newcastle.
  • The result meant the Carabao Cup will have a new winner after holders United crashed out.
  • United clinched the trophy last season after beating Newcastle 2-0 in the final at Wembley.

Manchester United's defence of the League Cup came to a limp end following a 0-3 home defeat by Newcastle on Wednesday.

Miguel Almiron, Lewis Hall and Joe Willock were on target for the Magpies who gained revenge for losing last season's final 2-0 to the Red Devils.

The result meant the Carabao Cup will have a new winner after holders United crashed out as Newcastle advanced to the quarterfinals.

In a repeat of last year's final, which Erik ten Hag's men won 2-0, both managers named much-changed sides at Old Trafford.

But it was Newcastle's strength in depth that showed as United slumped to an eighth defeat in 15 games in all competitions this season - their worst start to any campaign since 1962/63.

Tino Livramento and Hall have had to wait for their chance to shine since signing for the Magpies but the young full-backs played a huge role as Eddie Howe's side got revenge for defeat at Wembley in February.

Livramento's surging run set up Almiron to open the scoring on 28 minutes.

Chelsea loanee Hall then volleyed home a brilliant effort from the edge of the box just eight minutes later.

Joe Willock's solo run and stunning finish then drew the sting from any chance of a United fightback on the hour mark.

In other matches, Liverpool had to see off a spirited effort from Bournemouth and appalling weather conditions as Storm Ciaran swept in at the Vitality Stadium.

Justin Kluivert had cancelled out Cody Gakpo's opener with his first Bournemouth goal. But Darwin Nunez came off the bench to win the tie with a spectacular dipping strike from outside the box.

At Stamford Bridge, Benoit Badiashile and Raheem Sterling were on target as Chelsea secured a rare home win under Mauricio Pochettino to reach the last eight.

Elsewhere, Everton's upturn in form continued with a comfortable 3-0 win over Burnley.

James Tarkowski, Amadou Onana and Ashley Young scored on the night the Toffees remembered former chairman Bill Kenwright, who died aged 78 last week as Fulham avoided an upset against Championship high-flyers Ipswich.

Harry Wilson, Rodrigo Muniz and Tom Cairney were on target in a 3-1 win for Marco Silva's men at Portman Road.

Middlesbrough and Port Vale secured their places in the quarter-finals with victories over Exeter and Mansfield respectively on Tuesday.
