Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United and Sean Dyche’s Burnley go head-to-head at St James’ Park this Wednesday in an all-Premier League EFL Cup affair. Both teams could do with a win in the cup after suffering two Premier League defeats so far. With this one taking place at St James’, the Magpies are the slight favourites with the bookies, but this tie could go either way. Read on for the latest betting odds and predictions.

Newcastle United Preview – Will the Magpies make home advantage count in midweek?

Newcastle United kicked off their 2021-22 Premier League season with an eventful game against West Ham United. The Magpies led twice against the Hammers but fell to a 4-2 reverse at St James’.

Steve Bruce’s boys followed that up with another defeat last weekend. They conceded just before half time at Villa Park in the eventual 2-0 loss. After back-to-back league defeats, can Newcastle pick up their first win of the season in the cup on Wednesday night?

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1233 GMT, Tuesday 24 August)

Newcastle have been FA Cup winners on six occasions and runners-up seven times, but they have never won the League Cup. Their best performance was back in the 1975-76 season when they lost in the final to Manchester City. Will this finally be their year?

Burnley Preview – Can the Clarets bounce back?

Like Newcastle, Burnley have also made a poor start to their Premier League season. On the opening weekend, a second-minute James Tarkowski goal put them in front against Brighton & Hove Albion. However, two late Seagulls goals gave the visitors a 2-1 win at Turf Moor.

Burnley gave a good account of themselves at Anfield last time out, though Sean Dyche’s boys were beaten 2-0 by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane got the goals for the Reds.

Burnley have also never won the EFL Cup. They were FA Cup winners way back in 1914, but this trophy has eluded the Lancashire club. At the time of writing, Dyche’s boys are priced at 50/1 to lift the trophy this term.

On paper, these two Premier League teams seem well matched. However, home advantage could give the Magpies the slight edge in this one. We like the look of the home win and both teams to score at 7/2.

Since returning from a loan spell in the EFL Championship with Sheffield Wednesday, Jacob Murphy has been given a new lease of life at St James’. The 26-year-old scored against Burnley last season and netted in Newcastle’s opening day defeat to West Ham. Put some money on Murphy to score anytime here at the decent price of 9/2.
