Match preview

Three days after splitting the spoils in a six-goal home thriller against Premier League heavyweights Manchester City, Newcastle are back in front of the Sky Sports cameras, this time on their travels preparing to face Tranmere in the League 2 in the EFL Cup.

However, any hope of a second-round upset seems slim as the Magpies made an unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign, taking five points from three games, and manager Eddie Howe is determined to keep that feel-good factor going. be.

Dan Burn and Callum Wilson are injured and changes are expected, but Howe insists mentality is important and has made no secret that they are considering a cup race.

Several first-team members will get the chance to show what they are capable of and one player who could benefit from Howe’s confidence is teenage talent Elliot Anderson.

The 19-year-old thrived while on loan in League Two with Bristol Rovers last season, scoring seven goals in 21 starts, and this looks like the perfect opportunity for him to secure a starting spot.

One of those strikes came in a 1-1 draw with Tranmere at Prenton Park in April and at 21-10 the attacking-minded midfielder is making plenty of calls to make his mark again in Merseyside.

Howe opted to keep Anderson at St. James’ Park rather than send him on loan and he’s been involved with all three of Newcastle’s Premier League sides so he should finally get his chance to shine.

Rovers have won just one of their first five League Two games and they went on penalties after a 2-2 draw at Accrington in the first round, suggesting Newcastle should have plenty of chances to pile up their tally of goals.

Key stat

Four of Tranmere’s six competitive games this season have featured three or more goals.
