Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Newcastle United will be aiming to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Brighton when they face Morecambe in the EFL Cup round 3. The Magpies have been having their ups and downs at the start of the new Premier League campaign, but they did well to beat Blackburn in their EFL Cup opener thanks to Ryan Fraser’s goal. Newcastle have slim chances of winning the Premier League trophy, and, no doubt, they will give 100% to go all the way in the EFL Cup.
Even though the likes of Dubravka, Dummett, Gayle, and Schar remain in the recovery room, away win should be considered. Morecambe, on the other hand, suffered an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Cambridge United in their last League Two fixture, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Premier League club.
