Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag says Newcastle United are an “annoying” team to play against before their Carabao Cup final clash.
The pair meet in the Wembley showdown on Sunday afternoon and Ten Hag gave his thoughts on his opponents during his press conference yesterday.
“It’s a great team, clear philosophy. They’re intense and they are doing well right now.
“But they’re an annoying team to play against, so we will have to try and find a way to win and make sure we are on our game.”
