Newcastle United currently find themselves in the Champions League places after long unbeaten run

Newcastle United host Crystal Palace in an all Premier League affair in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. The sides have already met this season, playing out a 0-0 draw at St James’ Park on September 3.

Newcastle are in the form of their life, and are on a long unbeaten run that stretches back to August. In their most recent fixture, they beat Southampton 4-1, with goals from Miguel Almiron, Chris Wood, Joe Willock and Bruno Guimaraes on the scoresheet.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are also on a decent unbeaten run. They’re unbeaten in their last two games, and won the game against West Ham with Michael Olise scoring in the last minute.

That win leaves Palace 10th in the Premier League. Newcastle’s recent win moves them ahead of Spurs in third, after they fell to a 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool on November 6.

It’s the penultimate game for both sides before the break for the FIFA World Cup, which is being held in Qatar. Newcastle are set to host Chelsea, whilst Palace travel to rock bottom Nottingham Forest.

When does Newcastle United v Crystal Palace kick off?

Kick off between Newcastle United and Crystal Palace at St James’ Park will be at 7:45pm on Wednesday, November 9.

Why is Newcastle United v Crystal Palace not on TV?

Despite not being played during the 3pm blackout on a Saturday, which prohibits live games being televised during a certain window, the game is not on TV. It is very rare that Carabao Cup games are televised, with Sky Sports airing just one game in the competition this round.

How to watch highlights of the Carabao Cup

Although games are not being televised, aside from Chelsea v Manchester City, there’s still chances to watch comprehensive highlights. ITV will show a highlights show which will be broadcast on Thursday at midnight.
