Both Newcastle United and Manchester City will be looking to build on their respective wins last weekend as they lock horns in the third round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday. The Magpies come into this match currently sitting in eighth place and will be full of confidence after cruising to a record-setting 8-0 win over Sheffield United. Eddie Howe's team had eight different goal-scorers on the sheet during a brilliant showing that was in stark contrast to their dismal display during their dull scoreless stalemate against AC Milan in the Champions League.
Newcastle, who secured a top four finish and thus Champions League football for the first time in over two decades, started this season off on rocky footing, with three losses from their first four games. However, they have since turned things around, with their thrashing of Sheffield preceded by a gritty 1-0 result against Brentford. As such, despite the tricky test that will be in store when Manchester City come to town, they nonetheless will be hopeful of causing their fair share of troubles for Pep Guardiola's men.
Meanwhile, Manchester City earned a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest, but Rodri's lack of self control forced them to play much of the game with ten men. As such, City were unable to really extend their advantage and instead focused on protecting their two goal advantage to make it six wins from six games. The reigning Premier League champions are the only team still boasting a 100 per cent winning record to start the season, and save for their loss on penalties to Arsenal in the Community Shield last month, have won each and every single one of their subsequent eight games across all competitions.
