English League Cup
- 25th August 2021 7:45 PM
Having reached the quarter-finals of last season's competition, Newcastle United will look to progress even further in the Carabao Cup this time around.
And they begin their cup campaign with a second round home tie against fellow Premier League side Burnley, with a 7.45pm (BST) kick-off at St. James' Park.
Steve Bruce is likely to rotate his squad, but has pledged to field a "very, very strong" side against the Clarets. One man who could feature is Sweden international Emil Krafth, who started against West Ham on the opening day of the season before dropping out of the starting XI at Aston Villa on Saturday.
Krafth represented his country at Euro 2020 in the summer and now he's hoping to help United progress in the Carabao Cup, as he told NUFC TV this week.
