Newcastle vs Man City match preview
It's been a big week for both Newcastle and Man City.
In 8 days they've gone from the Champions League to the Premier League and now to the Carabao Cup.
The Carabao Cup was the only trophy Man City didn't win last season, losing in the quarter-finals.
Newcastle, however, made the last Carabao Cup final, eventually losing to Man United.
When it comes to Carabao Cup form, the 2 teams have only met 5 times, where Man City holds a 3-1 advantage, with 1 draw.
However, the last times the teams met in this competition back in 2014, Newcastle were the winners.

If Newcastle are to pull off an upset, they'll have to beat recent history.
Newcastle has not beaten Man City since January 2019, although there have been 2 draws.
The 2 teams met recently in August in the Premier League, with Man City winning by just 1-0.
Newcastle will be full of confidence coming into the clash off the back of an 8-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday.
They have now won 3 in a row in all competitions.
Meanwhile Man City had a more regulation 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest, even though they played with 10 men.
How this one will go will all depend on how serious Man City are about winning the Carabao Cup.
With a busy schedule, Man City could look to rest key players.
But if they play at full strength, they'll have too much for Newcastle.
Either way we predict Man City to advance to the fourth round, with the score dependent on who they send out.
