Can Oxford United take out Premier League opposition?

So far in this competition, they’ve overcome Hayes & Yeading United, Walsall and Hartlepool United to reach round four for only the third time since 1999.

Then, they battled to a very credible goalless draw in the reverse fixture so will fancy their chances back at home.

Already this year, Karl Robinson’s side have reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

That featured a famous 4-0 win over West Ham before they were eventually beaten by Manchester City back in December.

In League One, they claimed their first win of 2020 on Saturday, beating Blackpool 2-1 thanks to a Marcus Browne brace.

That lifted them up to eighth, just three points below the play-off places.

Of course, their main aim is to return to the second-tier for the first time since 1998–99.

But first, under the lights, can these players beat Premier League opposition?

Will Newcastle avoid an upset?

As for Newcastle, they’re looking to do something that they very rarely do.

Win two FA Cup matches in the same season.

They also needed a replay in the third round, drawing 1-1 at Rochdale, before smashing the League One side 4-1 at home.

However, this is different as the Magpies must go on the road to finish the job.

Steve Bruce will be desperate to do just that.

In the 21st century, the Toon Army’s FA Cup record is pitiful.

They’ve crashed out in the third round nine times, round four on seven occasions, with two quarter-finals and just one semi in 2005.

How far will they go this time?

This competition can become more of a priority given their current position in the Premier League.

On Saturday, somehow, they played out a goalless draw with the league’s bottom side Norwich on Tyneside.

That means they are now unbeaten in four since New Years’ Day so are tenth, seven clear of the relegation zone.

Will Oxford repeat what they did in 2017 and take Newcastle out of the FA Cup?

Despite a busy League One schedule, Karl Robinson will name a strong side, desperate to win this tie.

As always, Simon Eastwood will be in goal looking for his 14th clean sheet of the season.

Ahead of him will be a back four featuring captain John Mousinho.

He’ll start, despite not playing at St James, alongside Robert Dickie with Elliott Moore missing out.

There’s no debate as to who will be the full-backs.

Josh Ruffels and Sam Long have already made 37 and 22 appearance respectively this season.

In midfield, Alex Rodriguez will anchor in front of the defence.

Cameron Brannagan and James Henry are expected to be alongside him.

Star man Shandon Baptiste, who started on Tyneside, joined Brentford on Deadline Day reportedly for £3 million.

His departure is a big blow.

As is the fact that Tariqe Fosu also went to Brentford on Deadline Day.

Without these two, their options are somewhat limited.

Nathan Holland and Mark Sykes are expected to play out wide.

Marcus Browne’s brace on Saturday should see him keep his place through the middle.

Jamie Mackie, who famously scored for QPR the day Man City won the league in 2012, will be a substitute.

Will the Us defeat Newcastle?

As for Newcastle United, following the closure of the transfer window, they now have a very big squad.

Thus, Steve Bruce is expected to make a few changes but they certainly won’t be wholesale.

Karl Darlow made only his third appearance of the season in the first tie and is likely to keep his place.

Premier League ever present Martin Dúbravka will be rested.

In defence, Javier Manquillo, Emil Krafth, Jetro Willems and Paul Dummett are all injured.

But, Danny Rose has joined on loan from Tottenham and he’ll make his debut for the club.

DeAndre Yedlin will keep his place on the other side.

At centre-back, they do have options.

Captain Jamaal Lascelles will keep his place from Saturday with Fabian Schär and Florian Lejeune coming in for Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernández.

In midfield, Isaac Hayden and new recruit Nabil Bentaleb started against Norwich but the Longstaff brothers, Matty and Sean, could both come back in for this one.

Jonjo Shelvey is out.

Further forward, despite the fact Dwight Gayle, Yoshinori Mutō and Andy Carroll are also injured, they have options.

Valentino Lazaro, who’s joined on loan from Inter, is likely to be on the bench, awaiting his first start.

That’s because Bruce will want to name his first-choice front three.

Allan Saint-Maximin has only scored one goal for Newcastle.

Joelinton only has two, one of which came in the FA Cup.

Miguel Almirón is the most prolific having scored four times for the Magpies, two of those came against Rochdale in the third round.

Will any of them fire Newcastle to a fifth round visit to West Bromwich Albion?
