The Carabao Cup may not carry the prestige of other domestic cup competitions, but silverware is silverware and we’re approaching the business end of this season’s iteration.
Just four teams remain as a two-legged semi-final separates four Premier League sides from a chance of claiming the season’s first available piece of silverware. No, the Charity Shield does not count!
At the semi-final stage, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Southampton and Nottingham Forest are all vying for Wembley glory.
While a re-emerging beast is still involved, the three other teams have been shy of trophies for an incredibly long time. Victory in this competition would be huge for different reasons.
Once the semi-finals are in the books, our attentions will turn to the competition’s showpiece event. Here are all the details regarding the 2023 Carabao Cup final.
The 2023 Carabao Cup final will be played on February 26.
A kick-off time for the final is yet to be confirmed, but the 2022 final kicked off at 16:30 (BST) and it’s likely that’ll be the case this time around.
Once again, the Carabao Cup final will be held at Wembley Stadium.
We’re yet to know the two finalists with the two-legged semi-finals yet to be played. However, we know that either Southampton or Newcastle and Nottingham Forest or Manchester United will compete in the 2023 Carabao Cup final.
Newcastle and United are the likely finalists, but their respective semi-final opponents have each sprung a surprise or two to reach this stage and they cannot be counted out.
