Newcastle team v Hull named: Lazaar, Gayle, Lascelles & Diame start
The Newcastle team v Hull has just been named, with NUFC potentially only 90 minutes away from a two-legged League Cup semi-final.
United have so far defeated Cheltenham, Wolves and Preston, all at St James Park, though the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal could await if Newcastle make it through.
First things first though and Rafa makes seven changes from the Newcastle team that lost to Blackburn on Saturday.
Only Clark, Ritchie, Hayden and Shelvey stay in the starting eleven.
Gayle starts with Diame in behind, neither Perez or Mitrovic are in the squad.
The major surprise is Achraf Lazaar starting and not Paul Dummett.
A busy time for the Newcastle squad with then Forest next up on Friday in the Championship.
Sels, Anita, Clark, Lascelles, Lazaar, Hayden, Shelvey, Ritchie, Gouffran, Diame, Gayle
Sels, Dummett. Mbe,ba, Yedlin, Tiote, Atsu, Murphy
Compare the actual team with the one I predicted earlier.
