The EFL Cup continues tonight with Man Utd facing West Ham (KO 20:00) and Southampton take on Arsenal at the Emirates (KO 19:45).
There’s plenty of action to get involved with as well known firm Bet365 announce they have live feeds of the matches this season.
West Ham and Manchester United will meet for the second time in four days when they clash in the last 8 of the League Cup at Old Trafford.
The pair played out a 1-1 draw on Sunday in the Premier League at Old Trafford with Zlatan Ibrahimovic cancelling out Diafra Sakho’s early goal.
The result did little for either side with United 11 points off leaders, Chelsea and West Ham just one point above the relegation zones. With league titles seemingly unlikely at present, the league cup represents a good chance for both sides to capture some silverware.
Despite the opportunity that exists, both sides are set to make changes, some enforced.
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has confirmed he will make changes to his side, telling reporters “It would give us a lot of confidence if we could win the game and we will be doing everything to do that”
“If we change a few players like United will, it doesn’t mean we are going there just to play a game. It is a quarter-final and to reach the semis is a big thing and we are just a couple of games from the final.”
Winston Reid is available after suspension and could feature while weekend scorer Sakho is out with a hamstring injury. Andy Carroll is close to returning from a knee problem but won’t be available.
United meanwhile will be without suspended duo Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini for the clash. Both were booked for the fifth time this season on Sunday and miss out as a result.
Their absence could open the door for Bastian Schweingsteiger to come in from the wilderness. The German midfielder has yet to feature this season but was an unused substitute on Sunday.
Wayne Rooney is also likely to start while Ashley Young and Daley Blind could also come into the side.
Things have not gone too well for the Old Trafford club, although domestically Mourinho’s side have only lost once in their last eight in the Premier League, with wins difficult to come by at the moment.
The EFL Cup will give Mourinho the chance to rest a few of his superstars and blood a few youngsters, however the 2/5 on the Man Utd home win does look like the worst bet of the night.
The Hammers should be up for this and the 8/1 offered in places looks simply too big to ignore.
Elsewhere Arsenal take on Southampton in the all Premier League tie at the Emirates. Once again, changes are certain to be made by both managers although Claude Puel’s Saints side should not be underestimated having seemingly found their feet.
I fancy Arsenal to ultimately edge this, with 3/1 on offer on the Arsenal Win/Both Teams to Score market making significant appeal.
