Newcastle United vs Nottingham Forest

Watch Newcastle United vs Nottingham Forest live 2017 Stream Online.Newcastle United are still seeking their first goal of the 2017-18 season and they are difficult to fancy to get the better of in-form Nottingham Forest.For some clubs, the EFL Cup (now known as the Carabao Cup) can be looked at as a nuisance in regards to league fixtures.If there’s one trophy that Newcastle United have a sniff of doing well in this season, it’s probably the EFL Cup – or as we’re calling it this year, the Carabao Cup.

The game will see former striker Daryl Murphy return to St James’ Park after leaving in the summer but United should have more than enough to see off the Championship outfit.

A clutch of changes should freshen things up for Rafa Benitez with the Toon gaffer keen to get the job done without extra time and penalties.Newcastle did not play well on Sunday, and fans were left quite angry in their disappointing showing at Huddersfield. But with a vital match approaching this weekend against West Ham United, Newcastle can use Wednesday’s cup competition as a method of key preparation.

There is no reason to think it will be much different here with Forest having clearly closed the sizeable gap to Newcastle that separated the clubs last season.It will be interesting to see whether Benitez rings the changes or tries to build some confidence into his first-choice players, but whatever his selection it looks worth siding with Forest to inflict more misery on the beleaguered Spaniard and his troops.
