Looking for a Newcastle United vs Bournemouth live stream? We've got you covered.

Eddie Howe's side will be looking to pick up from where they left off before the break for World Cup 2022. Newcastle (opens in new tab) had a fantastic start to the season, losing only one of their first 15 matches in the Premier League to sit third ahead of the campaign's resumption on Boxing Day.

Before the action got under way, Newcastle were tipped to potentially challenge for Europa League qualification. 

So far at least, they have exceeded expectations. The Magpies look like genuine contenders for a top-four finish, in large part because of an exceptional defensive record: no team in the division has conceded as few goals as Howe's men.

Without silverware since 1955, Newcastle fans are desperate for the club to lift a trophy sooner rather than later. The Carabao Cup, in which they have already eliminated Tranmere Rovers and Crystal Palace (opens in new tab), offers an opportunity to do so.

Bournemouth (opens in new tab) have also overachieved relative to pre-season predictions, although there is still a long way to go in 2022/23. They sit 14th in the Premier League standings, although the Cherries lost four of their last five games prior to the pause.

In this competition, Gary O'Neil's men edged out Norwich on penalties before thrashing Everton (opens in new tab) 4-1 in the last round. They are through to the fourth round for the first time since the 2018/19 campaign.

Bournemouth will have to make do without first-choice goalkeeper Neto, who is nursing a hamstring injury. This game may come a few days too soon for Lloyd Kelly and David Brooks, both of whom are closing in on a return to fitness.

Newcastle remain without Alex Isak due to injury, while Fabian Schar might not be ready to start after a bout of illness. Paul Dummett, Emil Krafth and Joelinton are also in the treatment room and none will play a part here.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Carabao Cup football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Carabao Cup action, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, and FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
