Pep Guardiola made eight changes for League Cup clash at St James’ Park from our 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest on Saturday which saw Academy graduate Oscar Bobb handed his first senior start for the Club.
Frustratingly, we were unable to break the deadlock in a first half which saw us register six shots on goal and maintain 70% of the ball.
As a result, Eddie Howe introduced Anthony Gordon and Bruno at the interval and his changes paid dividends when the hosts broke the deadlock shortly after play resumed.
Joelinton battled his way into the box and saw his drilled cut-back across the face of goal find Alexander Isak at the back post who maintained his composure to fire into an empty net.
Despite our best efforts, an equalising goal evaded us and we exited the competition at the Third Round stage.
