Barring the odd closet Sunderland fan, it will be almost impossible to find anybody in the city of Newcastle not wanting the Magpies to triumph in this Sunday's Carabao Cup final. 

Eddie Howe's side have exceeded expectations by reaching a final this season, and Toon fans will descend on Wembley in droves in the hope of witnessing a first trophy win since 1955. But one person in the Newcastle squad could be forgiven for wanting the result to go the other way. That's because Toon gloveman Martin Dubravka will get his hands on a winners' medal only if Manchester United prove victorious.
