Daryl Janmaat targets League Cup glory for Newcastle United fans

Daryl Janmaat believes that Newcastle United owe it to the fans to target success in the League Cup.

Daryl Janmaat has claimed that Newcastle United owe it to their fans to treat the League Cup as seriously as possible ahead of Wednesday's meeting with Manchester City.

The Premier League champions stand in the way of the Magpies and a spot in the quarter-finals, but Janmaat is refusing to give up on the hope of lifting silverware this season following Sunday's morale-boosting victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

"Of course, it is a prize and Newcastle have not won one since 1969," the Dutch defender is quoted as saying by The Mirror. "It would be a great party if we won a prize. The fans want that very much.

"City have a big squad and a great squad - even their second team is very good. It will be a tough game, but if we play like we did in the second half at Spurs, then of course we have a chance."

Newcastle reached round four thanks to a dramatic 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace last month.
