Confirmed Newcastle team v Leicester – Wilson, Trippier, Bruno, Joelinton, Almiron all start
The confirmed Newcastle team v Leicester has now been announced.
Eddie Howe hoping to take Newcastle United to their first League Cup semi in 47 years (1976).
Whilst it would be the first semi final of any kind in 18 years (2005).
Newcastle team v Leicester:
Pope, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Bruno, Longstaff, Willock, Almiron, Joelinton, Wilson
So having made the changes he did at Hillsborough, Eddie Howe able tonight to name his strongest possible current eleven, the side that drew 0-0 at Arsenal.
So eight changes from the team v Sheffield Wednesday, with only Botman, Longstaff and Joelinton in the starting eleven tonight, who also started on Saturday.
Darlow, Lascelles, Saint-Maximin, Ritchie, Isak, Manquillo, Wood, Anderson, Murphy
Probably the strongest bench we have seen for some time as well in terms of attacking options, on their way back to full fitness, both Isak and ASM in reserve.
