    When did Newcastle last win the League Cup?

    Newcastle head into the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester feeling like they have a genuine shot at ending their long wait for a major trophy.

    That feeling is very justified, too. Eddie Howe’s men were one of the form teams of 2022 and appear to be in a good position to chase Champions League qualification this year.

    If they are to win the League Cup this year, though, they will have to create some club history to do it.

    Newcastle’s long trophy-drought is well-publicised, but it still might surprise many to know that the Magpies have never actually won the League Cup.

    They came closest in 1976 when they lost 2-1 in the final to Manchester City. To rub a little more salt into those wounds, it was Newcastle-born Dennis Tueart who scored the winner.

    The rest of their League Cup history has been a case of quarter-final frustration. They have reached that stage of the competition eight times, with half of them coming since the 2014/15 season.

    That record compares very poorly to what they have achieved in the FA Cup, which they have won three times – although not since 1955 – and reached another three finals.
