Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe recently spoke to ahead of the historic trip to Wembley for Newcastle United in the 2023 Carabao Cup Final.

The cup final, against Manchester United, will be the Magpies鈥 first trip to the home of football since the 2000 FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea - at the old Wembley Stadium.

Eddie Howe spoke of how preparation for cup finals are similar to preparing for any other match.

鈥淚t鈥檚 not just big games鈥 he said. 鈥淧reparation for us trying to be very consistent. We will try and approach it the same as any other game.

鈥淪ometimes it鈥檚 about taking pressure off the players rather than adding the pressure to them.

鈥淪ometimes it鈥檚 about adding pressure to them and making them realise the importance of the game, so you have to read your players鈥 mindsets as you prepare for the match.鈥

Talking about preparation, he added how much different ways of preparation go into a game of this magnitude.

He said: 鈥淚 don鈥檛 think you can neglect one aspect of preparation. Certainly, the tactical preparation is hugely important.

鈥淧hysically, you鈥檝e got to get the players in the right frame of mind. You don鈥檛 want to overtrain, you don鈥檛 want to undertrain, so you鈥檝e got to get the balance right.

鈥淢entally, the players have got to enter the pitch in a confident place and be able to express themselves in the best way that they can.

鈥淎ll these things, we try and consider, from the team perspective but also from the individual.鈥

Howe went on to talk about the great season the club is having, from rising to fourth in the Premier League table to reaching a cup final.

He finished: 鈥淚 don鈥檛 think you can prepare for success. I think you try to create a culture which brings you the optimal chance for success, but I鈥檝e never been one to try and predict what is going to happen.

鈥淭he culture, the day-to-day working and the atmosphere in the group - they鈥檙e things you can control and they鈥檙e things we try and concentrate on.鈥
