Newcastle’s hopes of a first trophy since 1955 were dashed by Manchester United at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday. Casemiro and a Sven Botman own goal were enough to down Eddie Howe’s Magpies in what was the club’s first cup final since May 1999. Express Sport rates and slates Newcastle’s players after a disappointing evening under the arch.

Loris Karius – 7

Thrown back into the spotlight after Nick Pope’s inopportune red card last weekend and held up well considering his lack of football.

Kieran Trippier – 7

The Newcastle captain was involved in most of his side’s handful of promising moments with his overlapping down the right.

Fabian Schar – 6

Surprising he stayed on after clashing of heads with Lisandro Martinez which left him needing prolonged treatment.

Sven Botman – 5

Own goal and a booking for throwing the ball down petulantly. Not the cup final he dreamed of.

Dan Burn – 6

A proud day for the boy from Blyth but no fairytale. Wasted Newcastle’s best opportunity with off-target first half header.

Bruno Guimaraes – 7

Back from three-match suspension, he gave everything to try to put Newcastle on the front foot but to no avail.

Sean Longstaff – 6

Goalscoring hero of the semi-final against Southampton but substituted at half-time at Wembley to make way for Alexander Isak.

Joelinton – 6

Deployed in midfield with Joe Willock not fit enough to start, main impact was booking for the ungainly scragging of Casemiro.

Miguel Almiron – 5

Lots of energy but very little in the way of end product from the Paraguayan.

Allan Saint-Maximin – 6

Stood up Diogo Dalot with one nice swift-shoe shuffle but could not influence the game sufficiently.

Callum Wilson – 5

Ineffectual display from Newcastle’s spearhead, admittedly without much in the way of service.


Alexander Isak (Longstaff 46) – 6

Jacob Murphy (Saint-Maximin 78) – N/A

Joe Willock (Guimaraes 79) – N/A

Matt Ritchie (Wilson 90+1) – N/A

Elliott Anderson (Almiron 90+1) – N/A
