The EFL Cup makes a return this midweek in Round 4 of the competition. A good number of games will be played, as each team will be eager to book a place in the quarter-finals.
Here are my predictions for the games that will be played in the EFL Cup this midweek.
Arsenal vs Leeds (7:45PM): Because neither team will be at full strength, it's tough to predict what to anticipate at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal, on the other hand, are on a roll right now, and I'm expecting the Gunners to advance to the League Cup quarter-finals with a close victory. Leeds United will be defeated by Arsenal.
Chelsea vs Southampton (7:45PM): Both clubs will make significant changes from their league game over the weekend, and I expect Chelsea's reserve team to be too strong for Southampton, who just do not have the same depth of talent in reserve as their opponents. This match will be won by Chelsea.
QPR vs Sunderland (7:45PM): On Tuesday, Sunderland will undoubtedly put their Championship opponents to the test, but with home advantage and more talent available to the hosts, QPR should come out on top.
The number of changes made by each club could be crucial. However, neither team is expected to have a significantly weaker squad with a quarter-final spot on the line. QPR will win this game.
West Ham vs Manchester City (7:45PM): In this League Cup match, two teams with strong records square off. Manchester City have had a fantastic run in this competition, and because of their depth, they can afford to rotate while still having the necessary strength for this game.
West Ham have a bad record against Manchester City, and David Moyes may be inclined to rest key players due to the club's involvement in continental competitions. They don't have the same big squad as City, but they are a dedicated group. Both teams are on hot streaks, and I expect both teams to score in this game.
Burnley vs Tottenham (7:45PM): Tottenham are having a much better season than Burnley, but they've lost their fear factor, which Burnley will look to exploit. Spurs' main men aren't delivering, and their defence is a mess.
Burnley has struggled defensively as well, but they have a strong offensive heading into this game. Given both clubs' attacking strengths and defensive deficiencies, I anticipate a high number of goals in this game.
