Manchester United wins first trophy since 2017 with victory over Newcastle United in Carabao Cup final

    Manchester United's Raphaël Varane, Bruno Fernandes and Antony celebrating after winning the Carabao Cup final.

    (CNN)Manchester United won its first trophy since 2017 with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United to win the Carabao Cup at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

    Casemiro broke the deadlock minutes after the half-hour mark, heading home from a Luke Shaw freekick.
    Five minutes later, the lead was doubled after Marcus Rashford looked to have continued his electric form when his deflected strike just evaded Lorius Karius to fly into the Newcastle goal despite the German's despairing fingertips -- it was later ruled to be a Sven Botman own goal.
      The trophy cements an excellent turnaround under Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag who has transformed the club from perennial underachievers to trophy winners in just over 10 months.
        "It's an amazing feeling, we've been searching for this moment, us, the fans, the club, finally we get our trophy, we deserve it," Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes told Sky Sports just moments after the final whistle.
        "It's been an amazing period. The first trophy of the season but we want more. It's not enough for this club, we want more and we need more because our standards deserve more."
