EFL Cup: Magpies dreaming of silverware

OddsNewcastle 3/5, Draw 3/1, Leicester 9/2

Newcastle fans are dreaming of ending their 68-year wait for a major domestic trophy this season, but after exiting the FA Cup at the hands of Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, their best hope of landing silverware, bar a shock surge towards the Premier League title, is in the EFL Cup.

The Magpies are bidding to reach the semi-finals of the EFL Cup for the first time since 1976 and confidence should be high despite their surprise defeat to Sheff Wed - the 2-1 loss at Hillsborough brought to an end a 15-match unbeaten run across all competitions.

That previous unbeaten sequence included a resounding 3-0 victory over Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day and it is the Foxes that are standing in the way of Newcastle reaching the semi-finals.

Leicester have lost all three of their Premier League games since domestic football resumed after the World Cup break, but, unlike Newcastle, they did get a win in the FA Cup at the weekend, albeit an unconvincing one as they edged past fourth-tier Gillingham.

EFL Cup: In-form United keen to avoid cup shock

WhatManchester United v Charlton Athletic
WhereOld Trafford
When20:00, Tuesday 10th January
OddsMan Utd 1/8, Draw 9/1, Charlton 14/1

Manchester United are a team in form, as they have won seven matches on the spin, a run that has seen them move into the top four of the Premier League standings and progress in both domestic cup competitions.

Erik ten Hag's side will expect to extend that winning run further when they welcome the lowest-ranked team left in this season's EFL Cup, League One Charlton, to Old Trafford in the quarter-finals.

Charlton have already knocked out one top-flight opponent in this season's competition, disposing of Brighton via a penalty shootout in round four, and they will head into this game having won back-to-back league fixtures.

This will be the Addicks' first trip to Old Trafford for almost 16 years and they are 14/1 to spring a surprise, with United 1/8 to wrap up their progress inside the 90 minutes.

Snooker: First-round action continues at Ally Pally

OddsRonnie O’Sullivan 13/5, Judd Trump 7/2, Mark Allen 9/1, Shaun Murphy 10/1, Kyren Wilson 11/1

The Masters 2023 has already thrown up some shock results, with defending champion Neil Robertson and three-time winner Mark Selby both exiting the competition on the opening day, with the first-round action set to continue on Tuesday.

First up at Alexandra Palace will be UK Championship winner Mark Allen, who is 8/15 to keep his hopes of completing the Triple Crown this season alive, against last year's beaten finalist Barry Hawkins, who is 6/4 to progress.

Following the conclusion of that match, two-time former champion Mark Williams will take to the table against David Gilbert.

Williams last claimed Masters glory in 2003, but he is 4/7 to get the better of 11/8 Gilbert, who has reached the semi-finals on his only two previous appearances at the invitational event.

Cricket: India and Sri Lanka begin ODI series

WhatIndia v Sri Lanka, 1st ODI
WhereBarsapara Cricket Ground, Guwahati
When08:00, Tuesday 10th January
OddsIndia 1/4, Sri Lanka 3/1

India and Sri Lanka have become familiar foes since the turn of the year, as they have already locked horns in a three-game Twenty20 series which India edged 2-1 thanks to their 91-run victory during Saturday's decider in Rajkot.

Now the two teams meet in a three-game one-day international series that will begin with the opening contest at Barsapara Cricket Ground on Tuesday.

Suryakumar Yadav was the star of the show for India in the T20 decider between the two sides, firing a scintillating century off 45 balls and he is 9/1 to be named player of the match.

Sri Lanka have only won one of their last 11 ODI's away to India and they are 3/1 to cause a surprise, with the hosts fancied at 1/4.
