The EFL Cup organisers have confirmed that it will be Hull v Newcastle on Tuesday 29 November.

The four matches are split between the Tuesday and Wednesday, with Liverpool home to Leeds on the same night as Newcastle’s match.

The Wednesday sees Man Utd v West Ham and Arsenal v Southampton.

Hull v Newcastle is one of three games to have a 7.45pm kick-off, only the Man Utd match kicking off at 8pm.

Little surprise to see NUFC once again ignored for live UK TV coverage, with Liverpool v Leeds chosen by Sky Sports on the Tuesday and the game at Old Trafford on the Wednesday being the other TV selection.
