However, a spanner was immediately thrown into the works with the draw throwing up reigning Premier League champions and 8-time League Cup winners Manchester City.

Abu Dhabi-owned City, given the strength of their squad and ability to rotate and still field a world class XI, have been dominant in this tournament in recent years, lifting the trophy in 2013/14, 2015/16, 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20, and 2020/21.

Newcastle will likely require a performance akin to the 8-0 drubbing of Sheffield United at the weekend if they’re to progress to Round 4 and hopefully an easier tie.

Here’s how to watch Newcastle vs Manchester City (aka ‘Oil Clasico’) on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house. Or any device for that matter.
