Manchester United's formidable woes were exacerbated as they succumbed to a humbling 3-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United in the League Cup fourth round, deepening the gravity of their lackluster season. Manager Erik ten Hag, visibly shaken by the disheartening performance, faced intensified scrutiny and resounding boos from the disappointed Old Trafford crowd. Reflecting on the team's subpar display, Ten Hag shouldered the responsibility, acknowledging the insufficiency of their efforts and expressing remorse for the disillusioned fans.

In a stark echo of their recent clash with Manchester City, Newcastle replicated their commanding form from the previous round, securing a convincing 3-0 victory. Miguel Almiron initiated the onslaught, swiftly followed by Lewis Hall's clinical finish, and Joe Willock's adept strike further solidified their dominance, leaving Manchester United in disarray.

Eddie Howe, the manager of Newcastle, praised his team's unity and resilience, citing their collective spirit as the driving force behind their exceptional performance. The defeat marked Manchester United's eighth loss in their last 15 matches across all competitions, with their home record tarnished by a disheartening five losses in their first ten games since the 1930-31 season. Additionally, their disappointing start to the Premier League season, losing five of their first ten games, signaled a troubling descent for the once-dominant club.

Meanwhile, West Ham United secured their quarter-final berth with a commanding 3-1 victory over Arsenal, highlighted by goals from Mohammed Kudus, Jarrod Bowen, and an own goal by Ben White. Despite a late effort by Martin Odegaard, Arsenal's lackluster performance fell short in the face of West Ham's relentless attack.

Elsewhere, Liverpool, with their rich history in the tournament, clinched a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Bournemouth, with notable contributions from Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez. Chelsea, Everton, and Fulham also secured convincing victories, while League One's Port Vale and Championship side Middlesbrough continued their impressive runs, underscoring the unpredictability and excitement of the League Cup's later stages.
