Newcastle United hosts Manchester City in a Capital One Cup match. The Capital One Cup is a competition started in 1960 that is similar to the FA Cup, which allows significantly more teams to enter (758 entered in 2012-13) from all levels of soccer, the Capital One Cup only allows the 20 Premier League clubs and 72 Football League clubs to enter.
The current champion is Swansea City, who won their first title last year. Liverpool is the most dominant club having one the competition 8 times.
“If we could beat Manchester City I think it would get people talking because then we’d be down to the last eight and it all becomes a bit serious then,” Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said, via ESPN FC.
“I think any team in the Premier League can consider this a tournament they can win. For the Champions League clubs maybe it’s a little down on their agenda but it’s high on our agenda.
“For us this year it is a priority. We want to win a trophy for our fans.
“If we could get past Manchester City it would be a great way to put away the disappointment of Sunderland, but that’s easier said than done.”
