Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag says his side have to finish the job at Wembley after sealing their place in the Carabao Cup final.

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has insists that his side have an unfinished business in the Carabao cup after the reach the final.

United will face Newcastle in the showpiece on February 26 after they beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 in the semi-final second leg at Old Trafford to seal a 5-0 aggregate win.

The foundations were laid with a 3-0 triumph at the City Ground in last week’s first leg and quickfire goals in the second half from Anthony Martial and Fred rubber-stamped their trip to the capital.

Ten Hag knows it is not job done, saying: “It’s good to reach the final, but it’s not about reaching the final, it’s about winning it that’s going to be tough, a great opponent.

“It’s great. Finals, you play them to win. It’s not an achievement to come into a final. We want to win. First, we have other things to do, and come back to the Premier League. I told the players as well, you have to bring it every game. They have to bring the intensity and we are United. When you are a United player, you have to match the standards. We are looking forward, it’s great to go to Wembley. To go and face Newcastle United, which is a great team, but it is far away for us now.

“Now the focus is on the Premier League, in two days it will continue. It has to give the motivation in the first place, we want to bring that cup to the fans.

“But in this moment I’m not looking ahead, we’re focusing on other things, a big week is coming up, we have Crystal Palace and then two games against Leeds and they are going to be great games, derby games that we are looking forward to.”
