Kieran Trippier singles out four ‘unbelievable’ Man United players Newcastle must stop in order to win Carabao Cup final

Newcastle United captain Kieran Trippier has named Manchester United's four most dangerous players ahead of the Carabao Cup final.

Newcastle, currently fifth in the league, are vying for their first bit of silverware since the FA Cup win in 1955 and are sure to have a huge following at Wembley on Sunday.

United, meanwhile are desperate to end a trophy drought of their own, having not lifted one for coming up to six years.

If the Magpies are to do the business, they will have to find a way to stop the Premier League's most-in-form player.

Unplayable Marcus Rashford scored his 23rd and 24th goals of the season against Leicester City at the weekend, hitting 16 in his last 17 games following on from an impressive World Cup campaign.

His England colleague Trippier is wary of his threat but also talked up Bruno Fernandes, Casemiro and Luke Shaw, who have all been in fine form for the Red Devils this season.

“I know Marcus very well,” Trippier said, as per Chronicle Live.

“I’m really happy for him because I’ve always known how unbelievable he is and he’s certainly hit some form.

“But it’s not about one individual – you’ve got Bruno Fernandes, Casemiro, Luke Shaw, who’s been unbelievable this season as well.

“We can’t be too focused on them. Obviously, we need to review them, of course, but we need to focus on how we can hurt them.

“We want to go into that final to win. That’s our only priority.”

The big issue Newcastle have is in the goalkeeping department after Nick Pope's clumsy red card for handling the ball outside his area in the 2-0 loss to Newcastle last weekend.

Pope is therefore banned for the showpiece and to make matters worse, second-choice goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is cup-tied because he played in the competition for United before his loan spell was cut short.

He will receive a winners' medal if United emerge victorious in the final.

Former Liverpool shot-stopper Loris Karius looks like he will get the nod, with Mark Gillespie playing back-up.
