What Will Be The Result Of The Carabao Cup Match Against Leicester City?

Newcastle will face Leicester City in tomorrow’s Carabao Cup match at St James Park. It will be an intriguing match for a few reasons.

First, we will see what type of lineup Steve will use in his first Cup tie with Newcastle. He has vowed that he is aiming for a cup run this season, but he’s been handed a tough draw to start off with.

We would expect a few changes from Sunday’s match at Tottenham but are not too sure he can afford to completely overhaul the starting eleven. There will be some changes for sure; however, he is very limited in what he can do upfront without having to drastically change the system.

If Joelinton is rested for Watford, then who will lead the line? The likely choice would be Yoshinori Muto, but he cannot do what the big Brazilian can and would need someone upfront to partner with.

We will likely see either Federico Fernandez or Ciaran Clark come in for Jamaal Lascelles, who hurt his calf at Tottenham but should be fine for Watford on Saturday. There are also Jetro Willems and Javier Manquillo who haven’t played in the past two games so are due for a run-out.

Karl Darlow also could make his first appearance of the season in goal. Though, we would not be surprised if Martin Dubravka gets used more in the cup matches this season.

Ayoze Perez– makes his return to St James Park

Ayoze Perez will also make his return to St James Park and could feature in the match at some point. Ayoze has started all three Premier League games for Leicester this season, so we will see if he gets the nod from the start.

This is the first match since the resounding win at Spurs on Sunday. A flat performance here will be a step backward for Steve Bruce and the players. They need to show consistency and keep the momentum from Sunday’s result going.

Leicester City are unbeaten in the league so far and sit in fourth place. This is a tough draw for sure, but Leicester will also be resting some starters. Hopefully, Newcastle can get a win to keep the positivity flowing.

    Perez deserves a warm welcome by us fans
    Arguably, alongside Dummett, our most dedicated player of the last decade. He was correct to follow his ambitions of a better life and leave. A great player although extremely frustrating to watch at times.

    Inconsistent player, but he scored some elegant goals.

    Genji…………. Yesterday I tried to explain the dilemma that many people have with wanting Ashley out but still instinctively wanting that his / our team do well on the pitch.
    The anger over Bruce’s appointment will have subsided somewhat with Sunday’s result and affected the momentum to protest or boycott.
    Obviously there is a long way to go and one hard fought result doesn’t mean that Bruce will be a success. I have maintained as have others that Ashley will feel the true wrath and resentment of the Geordies if we go on a long losing streak and that is the time that the troops need to be organised properly.

    Most fans will have decided by now if they intend to go to matches or not so IMHO their decision should be respected.
    I am not in the UK at the moment so am unable to attend TMG meetings but my suggestion would be to target SD directly and then try and uncover and expose all of Ashley’s dodgy dealings to cause him maximum embarassment .

    Your efforts to date deserve acknowledgement and praise so don’t give up the fight .

    Sounds like Joelinton, Almiron, Lascelles, Atsu & possibly Schar will miss tomorrow’s League Cup tie v Leicester with injury/knocks/fatigue. Saint-Maximin hamstring perhaps not as serious as first feared but another scan later today

    Allan Saint-Maximin may be out for up to three weeks if today’s scan results go well. Had to wait 48 hours to let bleed settle in hamstring. “The initial scans think it’s not that serious,” Steve Bruce confirms.

    The international break could be coming at just the right time.
    We could do without Miggy going to play a couple of meaningless
    friendlies in Japan.

    Reilly I think you could add Dubs to that list
    not for injury/tiredness reasons but it makes
    sense to avoid risk by playing Darlow
