Chelsea vs Newcastle: preview 

The competition is heating up as Chelsea take on Newcastle in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals today. Three more Premier League teams will be knocked out at this stage, so a victory provides a very real route to the final for the victor. Progress would mean a lot to both sides, so expect a highly competitive match.

The two teams come into the match after wins in the Premier League. The Blues saw off Sheffield Utd, whilst the Magpies comprehensively beat Fulham to keep their hopes of European football for next season on track. They beat Blackburn Rovers and Man Utd respectively in the previous round.

Mauricio Pochettino has had a difficult time since arriving at Stamford Bridge. His team sit tenth in the league, having already lost on seven occasions. He has rotated some players, but continuing this cup run would do a lot to alleviate the pressure building on the former Spurs boss. 

Eddie Howe will have no such opportunity available. Despite winning, his side suffered more injuries to key players last time out, with Fabian Schar and Joelinton both coming off in the first half. Even with the welcome return of Sven Botman, who starts, it leaves him down to the bare bones.

These teams have lost the previous two Carabao Cup finals. The Geordies were beaten by Man Utd back in February, while the Blues lost a dramatic penalty shoot-out to Liverpool in 2022. 

Here's how the teams line up:

Chelsea: Petrovic; Disasi, Thiago Silva, Badishile, Colwill; Caicedo, Fernandez, Gallagher; Palmer, Sterling, Jackson.

Newcastle: Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Botman, Livramento; Guimarães, Longstaff, Miley; Almiron, Gordon, Wilson

Both clubs take the League Cup seriously and will want to give it everything.  Want to tune in to find out who makes it to the semi-final and one step closer to Wembley? Of course you do. Here's how to watch a Chelsea vs Newcastle live stream online from wherever you are in the world.

How to watch Chelsea vs Newcastle live stream from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Chelsea vs Newcastle in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away traveling, you probably won't be able to watch the Carabao Cup game like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also very easy to use.
