This Newcastle XI will see off Hull in the EFL Cup

Newcastle travel to Hull for the quarter-final of the League Cup tonight as they continue their quest to win the trophy for the first time in their history.

The Magpies are in excellent form having lost just one of their last ten matches and find themselves top of the Championship with 40 points from 18 matches.

They also have a decent recent record against the Tigers – they’re undefeated in their last three match-ups with two of them being away wins.

Unfortunately for Rafa Benitez’s side, they have a poor history in the League Cup quarter-finals, having progressed to the semis just once from eight last eight ties.

Determination and application will be required if they are going to transfer their league form into the cup, while team selection will also be key if they are to prove they are still a side with Premier League quality.

What team will Benitez and his coaching staff go for? And what will it mean for the match-up?

This is our XI that we feel Newcastle must field if they are to get a result vs. Hull…
