Manchester City vs Newcastle

Capital One Cup
Etihad Stadium
Wednesday, October 29. Kick-off: 1945


Capital One Cup holders Manchester City meet Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs, and Manuel Pellegrini’s side could do with a win following a morale sapping weekend defeat.

City fell further off the pace in defence of their Premier League title by falling to a 2-1 loss against West Ham at Upton Park, and will be desperate to return to winning ways against Newcastle in the cup.

This competition was the first Pellegrini was able to win as Manchester City manager and may possibly represent the best chance he has of silverware during his second campaign with the club.

With their Champions League hopes hanging by a thread and Chelsea romping away with the league, Pellegrini will be under pressure to ensure City lift either of the domestic cup competitions, or even both.

Standing in their way of a last eight place will be Newcastle, who have not lost a match in October. Alan Pardew has been under serious pressure but may have just turned a corner, as demonstrated with a triumph at Tottenham on Sunday.

Newcastle are without a trophy since they last won this competition 38 years ago, and Pardew will be hoping he will be afforded enough time to take the Toon Army to Wembley.
