Newcastle have set the wheels in motion for their ascent to English football’s elite circle, with the nouveau riche club flourishing under Eddie Howe’s tutelage. The Tynesiders are currently ensconced in the Premier League’s top four and will harbour genuine ambitions of gatecrashing the Champions League places.

But, for now, focus is very much on the EFL Cup, and Howe would relish the opportunity to add silverware to his CV. You would have to go back to 1955 for Newcastle’s last meaningful domestic trophy, but under their vastly rich Saudi owners, it surely will not be long before that protracted drought ends.

For Crystal Palace, they have a manager who would love nothing more than to win this trophy to finally add a winner’s medal to his glittering collection. Patrick Vieira won five FA Cups as a player for Arsenal and Man City, but the EFL Cup eluded his grasp. Can he finally break his duck in this competition?

Newcastle v Crystal Palace: Match Stats

Miguel Almiron has now scored eight goals in 14 Premier League games this season, just one fewer than he managed in his first 110 in the competition combined. The Paraguayan will be aiming to translate that form to the EFL Cup and bolster Newcastle’s aspirations of pushing for domestic silverware this campaign.

On top of the current difference-makers, Howe may also use this match as an opportunity to hand the convalescing Allan Saint-Maximin a run out from the start. Once Newcastle’s attacking catalyst, the fleet-footed winger has been out since August (excluding a brief 12-minute return last month), but recently returned to action. His bag-of-tricks dribbling and unpredictability will just add another flavour to Newcastle’s already-impressive concoction.

Newcastle v Crystal Palace: Team news

As alluded to, Saint-Maximin recently made a return to full fitness, featuring briefly against Aston Villa and Southampton, and he may be handed a start against Palace to rebuild his match fitness. In not so encouraging news, Kieran Trippier, Joe Willock and Callum Wilson all sustained knocks in the weekend’s comprehensive win over Southampton so may be kept on ice here as a precautionary measure. Joelinton also returns from suspension. For the visitors, James McArthur and Chris Richards remain long-term absentees, while Odsonne Edouard remains highly doubtful.
