Newcastle United and Burnley square off in the EFL Cup second round on Tuesday night having both endured a poor start to the new Premier League campaign.The Magpies and the Clarets are two of five clubs to have lost each of their opening two fixtures in England’s top flight.

Having been provided with a start of West Ham United and Aston Villa, Steve Bruce would have expected his Newcastle side to collect at least a point from those fixtures.
