Newport News and Form
Newport are carrying a bit of form with them this season as they are unbeaten across their five games played in all competitions. The most notable aspect of their season has been the strength of their defence. Newport have claimed a clean sheet four of their five games played.
They were out on the road against Gilllingham in the first round of this season’s League Cup. Newport won through on a penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw. That was just the third win in their last nine League Cup fixtures. They have lost the last two EFL Cup home fixtures, conceding exactly 3 goals in both of those.
West Ham News and Form
West Ham collected a 3-1 away win at Watford in the Premier League on the weekend. That was the first victory of the season for them. Perhaps the one concerning thing for them is that they have not taken a clean sheet yet this season. West Ham made it to the fourth round of last season’s League Cup where they were beaten by London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
West Ham do have a pretty good record in the EFL Cup, having won five of their last seven played. The Hammers have won three of their last four away games in the competition, scoring at least two goals in each of those three successes. Two of those three wins were against lower-ranked opposition as well (Cheltenham and AFC Wimbledon)

Who will win – Newport v West Ham Predictions
