Longstaff on a hat-trick but as Magpies close in on first domestic final since 1999 but Guimaraes sent off


Newcastle are on the cusp of making it to their first domestic cup final since 1999 as they welcome Southampton to St James’ Park tonight.

The Magpies hold a 1-0 lead over the Saints in their Carabao Cup semi-final thanks to Joelinton’s second-half strike last week.

Eddie Howe’s men haven’t lost at home all season, while Nick Pope has kept ten consecutive clean sheets.

But Nathan Jones’ Saints have won four of their last six in all competitions and did breach the Magpies’ defence last week, only for VAR to rule out Adam Armstrong’s goal for handball.

The Premier League is arguably more important for Southampton, with the threat of relegation looming, but the chance to make it to Wembley isn’t something that comes around very often.

Manchester United or Nottingham Forest will await the winner of this tie in the final.
