Newcastle Cup Draw Is One Of Five All Premier League Clashes
The Newcastle Cup draw sees United take on Crystal Palace in South London as their reward for beating Gillingham on Tuesday night.
Matches will be played on either Tuesday 23rd or Wednesday 24th September.
Newcastle play home to Hull on Saturday 20th September, although this could change to the Sunday if Steve Bruce’s team progress in Europe tonight. The following fixture sees United take on Stoke with a Monday night kick-off on September 29th.
Looking at the other fixtures it would appear unlikely TV broadcasters will be bothering with our encounter.
If Newcastle were to progress then there would be an absolute maximum of 9 other Premier League clubs in that last 16, with a minimum of 7 non-PL clubs guaranteed a place in that fourth round.
Chelsea v Bolton
Arsenal v Southampton
West Bromwich Albion v Hull City
Crystal Palace v Newcastle
Leyton Orient v Sheffield United
Cardiff City v Bournemouth
Sunderland v Stoke City
Derby v Reading
Liverpool v Middlesbrough
MK Dons v Bradford City
Manchester City v Sheffield Wednesday
Burton Albion v Brighton
Swansea City v Everton
Shrewsbury v Norwich
Fulham v Doncaster
Tottenham v Nottingham Forest
