EFL Cup: Newcastle United defeat Southampton 1-0

Newcastle United defeated Southampton by a score of 1-0 thanks to a goal from Brazilian midfielder Joelinton in the second half.

Joelinton and Newcastle believed they had scored in the opening period, but referee Stuart Attwell judged that he handled the ball before scoring.

In the 73rd minute, Joelinton came on just in time to finish off a low cross from Alexander Isak.

Duje Caleta-dismissal Car's late in the game for two bookable offences brought Saints' evening to a disappointing conclusion.

Newcastle are now in pole position to reach the final as they chase a first domestic trophy since 1955.
