Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has labelled Newcastle's tactics 'annoying' as he prepares to meet the Magpies in the Carabao Cup final.

Newcastle are in their first cup final since 1999 and are looking to delay Ten Hag's first taste of silverware in England, with the Dutchman looking to deliver a trophy to Man Utd for the first time in six years.

Ten Hag was full of praise for the progress Newcastle have made under manager Eddie Howe, even if it makes his job as a manager tougher.
