The second round matches will be played in the W/C 24 August and Newcastle have drawn Northampton Town at St James Park, a potential chance for 19 year old new signing Ivan Toney to be involved against his former club.
The match will take place in between Newacstle visiting Old Trafford and then hosting Arsenal on the following weekend.
All eyes will be on the Steve McClaren team selection after the supposed commitment of Mike Ashley to now try in the cups.
Elsewhere, Sunderland narrowly avoided a trip to the other St James Park, instead being drawn at home against Exeter City.
