Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is facing the axe for the Capital One Cup. The Daily Mail says he is set to be replaced by Costel Pantilimon for the Capital One Cup tie against Newcastle on Wednesday.

And he will also come under pressure for his country next month with head coach Roy Hodgson set to blood Fraser Forster against Chile.

Hart, 26, has made more than 100 appearances for City in the Barclays Premier League, but this is the toughest period of his career at the very highest level.

Pantilimon played in the previous Capital One Cup round in the 5-0 home win over Wigan.
