Newcastle, infamously, haven’t won any major silverware since beating Újpest in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup Final in 1969.
But, with the Magpies currently sat third in the Premier League table, supporters on Tyneside firmly believe that their time is belatedly now.
Before the break, Eddie Howe’s team beat Chelsea 1-0, Joe Willock the scorer, meaning they’re unbeaten in ten league games, winning seven of the last eight.
In this competition, Newcastle ousted Tranmere in round two, before needing a penalty shootout to just about see off Crystal Palace last month.
So, will the Toon Army be celebrating a spot in the quarter-finals?
AFC Bournemouth meantime have made interim boss Gary O’Neil’s position full-time during the break, and have a new owner, with Bill Foley now in charge in Dorset.
The former is due to the fact the Cherries sit 14th in the Premier League, three clear of danger.
In their last two games before the World Cup, Bournemouth hammered Everton both times, 4-1 in this competition and then 3-0 in the league three days later.
Nevertheless, given Newcastle’s imperious form just now, expect a home victory at St James’ Park.
