Manchester United vs Newcastle United the pick of the EFL Cup fourth round ties
  • Man United host Newcastle in repeat of last season’s final
  • Arsenal and West Ham United in all London clash
  • Favourites Liverpool travel to Bournemouth

Manchester United are set to host Newcastle United in the fourth round of the EFL Cup, in a repeat of last season’s final. 

Isak strike sees Magpies edge out City

Newcastle earned their spot in the fourth round with a  1-0 victory against Manchester City at St James’ Park on Wednesday. Alexander Isak’s goal in the second half proved to be the difference, stunning Pep Guardiola’s table-topping side.

Eddie Howe made 10 changes from Sunday’s 8-0 win at Sheffield United in the Premier League and the Magpies  defended well in the first half but were dominated by the visitors. However, Bruno Guimaraes and Anthony Gordon entered the fray at the break, the Magpies were transformed, with Isak coolly finishing following great work from Joelinton. 

Manchester United secured their place in the next round by defeating Crystal Palace 3-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday. This sets the stage for a compelling rematch of last season’s final, which saw the Red Devils emerge victorious with a 2-0 win at Wembley, courtesy of goals from Casemiro and Marcus Rashford.

Rice set for return to West Ham with Arsenal

In another noteworthy fixture, Declan Rice faces a trip back to his former club as Arsenal are scheduled to travel to West Ham United. Liverpool will make a trip to Bournemouth after clinching a 3-1 victory against Leicester City at Anfield.

Chelsea, who have notched up their third win across all competitions this season, will take on Championship side Blackburn Rovers at Stamford Bridge.

Mansfield Town, the lowest-ranked side in the draw, currently plying their trade in League Two, will host Port Vale.

The fourth round matches are scheduled to take place during the week commencing October 30.

Fourth round draw

Mansfield Town vs Port Vale

Ipswich Town vs Fulham

Manchester United vs Newcastle United

Bournemouth vs Liverpool

Chelsea vs Blackburn Rovers

West Ham United vs Arsenal

Everton vs Burnley

Exeter vs Middlesbrough

Betting Implications

Liverpool are installed as favourites, ahead of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Newcastle United.

With Man United and Newcastle facing each other, the difficulty of this fixture for both clubs is taken into account.

At the time of writing, bet365 have Liverpool at 3/1, Arsenal, 7/2, Manchester United 4/1 and Newcastle United and Chelsea both at 5/1.

Odds are correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.

Bettors need to study the draw and the form of the teams involved. Also, those clubs in Europe could find the number of fixtures challenging so may rest some first team players in this competition.
