Both teams had their moments. "Very pleased to win the game but we know it’s only half-time and there’s a long way to go. “Nick made a couple of really good saves towards the end so it’s been a good day for us, but there’s still a lot to play for in the tie. ”Michael Dominski·Live ReporterJanuary 24, 2023 at 5:25 PM ESTMurphy waves goodbye to Caleta-Car - UK readersOur British readers can see Murphy's funny reaction to Caleta-Car's sending off here:Michael Dominski·Live ReporterJanuary 24, 2023 at 5:25 PM ESTMurphy waves goodbye to Caleta-Car - US readersOur American readers can see Murphy's petty reaction to Caleta-Car's sending off here:Michael Dominski·Live ReporterJanuary 24, 2023 at 5:23 PM ESTGuimaraes: We could have scored moreBruno Guimaraes spoke to Sky Sports after the win: "We controlled the game but we missed big chances.
Southampton vs. Newcastle live updatesMichael DominskiJanuary 24, 2023 at 5:57 PM ESTNewcastle beat 10-man Southampton 1-0 in a chaotic first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final, taking a slender advantage home to St James' Park for next week's decisive second leg. Eddie Howe's side enjoyed the better of the chances in the first half. Joelinton appeared to open the scoring in the 39th minute, poking the ball home from close range, but the goal was disallowed for a handball.
"It's just the first game, now we need to think about the next one. I'm proud of the team today. "One goal is important, we could score more but most important was to be one goal in front of Southampton. "I want to thank Nick Pope, I think he's the best goalkeeper in the world.

A handball ruled out a goal for both sides (do we hate VAR, love it or a bit of both? ), some feistiness, a red card... but Eddie Howe's team have a one-goal lead midway through this two-legged tie. They are now 90 minutes away from Wembley. I'm exhausted, freezing and excited!

The frustrating thing for Nathan Jones is that type of goal threatened to happen all night. Another disallowed goal set Southampton back, so they will be content to still remain in the tie, however big an ask it is to advance. It was a really solid debut from Charly Alcaraz. Tough game to make your first start in - lots of transitions, lots of giveaways and against a well-oiled Newcastle midfield. He has good power to be effective in the league. Jacob TanswellJanuary 24, 2023 at 5:12 PM ESTThis match had everythingThat was a proper cup tie by the end and one that had a bit of everything. Most importantly for the visitors, it had a Newcastle goal, but my goodness there should have been more of them and they almost paid for it.
The home side's misery was compounded in the 86th minute, as Duje Caleta-Car was shown a second yellow card for a tactical foul on Allan Saint-Maximin. Newcastle are well positioned to advance to February's final in search of their first trophy since 1955. (Photo: Getty Images) January 24, 2023 at 5:57 PM ESTThat's all for tonight!

Replays showed it was challenging to discern whether ball hit his arm or his chest. Joelinton was in central to the action again in the 53rd minute, missing a wide-open net from point-blank range. Southampton eventually responded to Newcastle's pressure, as Che Adams forced two fantastic saves from Nick Pope after the hour mark. The visitors finally broke through in the 73rd minute, as Joelinton (who else? ) finally found the back of the net, firing home a brilliant cross by Alexander Isak. Nathan Jones' men appeared to equalise just two minutes later, as former Newcastle player Adam Armstrong bundled the ball home, the VAR disallowed the goal for a handball.
