Tranmere Rovers will entertain Newcastle United at Prenton Park this Wednesday night as both sides look to get the better of each other in the second round of the EFL Cup. The Merseyside club suffered a 2-1 loss away at Newport County last weekend. In contrast, the Magpies managed to secure an impressive 3-3 draw against Manchester City recently.

Tranmere Rovers vs Newcastle United: Talking Tactics

Tranmere head coach Micky Mellon will set his side up in a 5-3-2 formation and is expected to instruct his players to sit deep and soak in all the pressure before hitting Newcastle on the counter. The home side have to work hard if they want to cause an upset this Wednesday night.

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and could ask his men to enjoy the ball and engineer enough opportunities to win this clash. As long as the Magpies do not get complacent, they should have enough firepower to emerge victorious in this crucial EFL Cup clash later this week.

Team News

Tranmere Rovers

Jon Nolan and Lee O’Connor are both in contention to start this game for the home team. Mellon could also rely on Mateusz Hewelt to operate in goal for Tranmere in midweek.

Tranmere Rovers Predicted XI

Hewelt; Byrne, Turnbull, Jameson, Dacres-Cogley, Nolan, O’Connor, Merrie, Bristow; Hemmings, Nevitt

Newcastle United

Newcastle United

Callum Wilson will be rested in this game after he sustained a minor hamstring problem. Dan Burn is also a major doubt for this clash at Prenton Park. Otherwise, Howe has no fresh injury concerns to cope with in midweek.

Newcastle United Predicted XI

Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Fernandez, Ritchie; S.Longstaff, Willock; Murphy, Anderson, Fraser; Wood

Key Men

Tranmere Rovers

Kane Hemmings and Elliott Nevitt will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for the Merseyside club up top. Mateusz Hewelt can expect a busy night, so he has to make a few good saves if Tranmere are to have any chance of success in this game.

Newcastle United

Chris Wood’s physical presence up top could cause a few problems for the Tranmere defenders. It would be up to Joe Willock and Ryan Fraser to create some clear-cut chances for the Magpies to win this game.
