Newcastle have drawn Championship club Preston at home in the 4th round of the EFL (League) Cup.
Sunderland got Southampton away.
Ties will be played week starting Monday, 24th October and it just so happens we are at Deepdale in the league on Saturday 29th October so like with Wolves we will play Preston North End in successive games.
We have an excellent chance to go through to the quarter-finals and here is the full draw – with four ties between Premier League clubs and yes – Manchester City vs Manchester United and Liverpool vs Tottenham – unbelievable.
Here is the full draw:
West Ham vs Chelsea
Man Utd vs Man City
Arsenal vs Reading
Liverpool vs Tottenham
Bristol City vs Hull City
Leeds vs Norwich
Newcastle vs Preston
Southampton vs Sunderland
And just realized here’s what we wrote in this article today – must be our lucky day:
“It was a good win and we are now in the last 16 of the EFL Cup and maybe we will draw Preston at home in the 4th round?”
But it really is a great draw for us – one we wanted.
