Following their record-breaking 8-0 victory over Sheffield United at the weekend, Newcastle United must now switch their attention to the EFL Cup as they take on Manchester City in the third round on Wednesday night.
Eight goals. Eight different goalscorers. It really was quite the victory for Eddie Howe’s side on Sunday, proving that their slightly sticky start to the season is over and that they are still a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League.
It remains to be seen how strong Newcastle will line up for this EFL Cup match. Howe may want to use it as an opportunity to rotate his team and keep things fresh or, with momentum starting to build, he may want to leave things as is.

Manchester City have an excellent record in this competition, winning it six times in the last 10 years, and are the starsports.bet favourites to life the trophy again at 10/3.
In their last outing, it was a fairly routine 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest with early strikes from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland securing the points despite Rodri’s second-half sending off.

Although I expect City to make changes, as Pep Guardiola hinted towards at a recent press conference, I still see City having the quality to come through this one in 90 minutes and that is what I am backing at 7/5 with starsports.bet.
Also, considering his disciplinary record so far this season, I also like the look of an Anthony Gordon yellow card at 12/5.
