Newcastle 1-0 Southampton LIVE SCORE: Longstaff thrill St James’ Park with an early goal in Carabo Cup semi-finals
Welcome to Newcastle vs Southampton
Newcastle meet Southampton, who led 1-0 from the first leg, tonight and are looking to reach the League Cup final for the first time in 47 years.
The Magpies had no new injury worries from the first leg, with Eddie Howe missing only the trio of Jonjo Shelvey, Emil Krath and Matt Targett for tonight’s second leg, with the latter in talks with Nottingham Forest about a transfer after the day’s transfer deadline.
Howe is expected to pick the same starting XI from the tie at St Mary’s, although Alexander Isak is pushing for the inclusion after his role in Joelinton’s winner last week.
Callum Wilson is now nine games without a goal but Howe said Isak has yet to build game fitness in training so it’s unlikely he will start tonight.
Newcastle have confirmed the signing of Everton’s Anthony Gordon from Everton for a £45million fee, but any debut for the 21-year-old will surely come as a replacement.
Southampton centre-back Caleta-Car was given his marching orders for two bookable offenses in the first leg but the Croatian served his suspension in the weekend’s FA Cup tie and will be available for selection tonight, where he is expected to partner Jan Bednarek, who was not allowed to play at the weekend.
Moussa Djenepo was sent off before being sent off after Nick Pope ran into the player and it remains to be seen if he will pass the necessary concussion protocols in time to form the squad for the second leg.
Juan Larios, Valentino Livramento and Alex McCarthy are out through injury.
New signing James Bree is looking to make his debut, although Nathan Jones is expected to stay on last week’s side, as Gavin Bazunu, Mohammed Salisu, Carlos Alcaraz and captain James Ward-Prowse are all expected to return to the starting line – from the weekend.
