Match: Newcastle United vs Bournemouth
Competition: EFL Cup
Start: 19:45 UK time

Newcastle United have revealed their side will host Bournemouth in the fourth round of the EFL Cup at St James’ Park tonight.

Eddie Howe will be keen to see his side retain the momentum they built up before the World Cup break and progress in the EFL Cup will also be high on his agenda.

Visitors Bournemouth played Newcastle in the league at St James’ Park in September and the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Newcastle head into the game on the back of friendly wins over Al Hilal and Rayo Vallecano.

This evening, Howe selects Nick Pope between the posts, with a back four of Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schar, Sven Botman and Dan Burn.

In midfield, Newcastle will start with Bruno Guimaraes, Sean Longstaff and Joe Willock, while Miguel Almiron and Joelinton will support Callum Wilson.

If Newcastle need to make changes, Howe has options on the bench, including Chris Wood and Matt Ritchie.
