While Lionel Messi ponders his future, English fans are regrouping for the resumption of club football. The team news is in and Brazil international Bruno Guimarães, who is said to be fine, physically, after returning from Qatar, starts for Newcastle. Allan Saint-Maximan, who was left out of the French team by Didier Deschamps, is on the bench with Joelinton and preferred in attack.

As for Bournemouth, Gary O'Neil has a tough task on his hands if he is to unseat the Magpies at St James's Park. Still, O'Neil has certainly proven his mettle so far. Despite taking charge just 12 matches prior to the World Cup break, he has guided the Cherries to 14th in the Premier League and masterminded a thumping 4-1 win over Everton in the third round of the EFL Cup.

Newcastle have a famously poor record when it comes to the this competition. Since its inception 61 years ago the Toon have only made it to the cup final once, losing 2-1 to Manchester City in 1976. But having dropped just one game in all competitions so far this season, Eddie Howe will be aiming to rewrite history.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm GMT (2.45pm ET) today, Tuesday 20th December. Read on to find out on how to watch a Newcastle vs Bournemouth live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.
