King Of Stats: The Capital One Cup gets the ‘royal’ treatment

| 24.09.2013

The regent of the hot-streak and monarch of the goalless drought is back to offer more invaluable stats to help punters ahead of the upcoming Capital One Cup…

3 – The amount of times in their last four defeats at Old Trafford in all competitions that Liverpool have gone down to Manchester United by the same 2-1 scoreline. Man Utd to win 2-1 is 9/1 with Ladbrokes.

7- Straight wins to nil for Manchester City against Wigan before that 1-0 humbling in the FA Cup final last season. City are 21/20 to win without conceding, while Wigan are 19/1 to do the same.

2.83 – The average amount of goals per game scored by last season’s semi-finalists Aston Villa, the top-scoring side in the competition. Aston Villa are 37/20 to score 2/3 goals against Tottenham.

4 – Goals for Villa’s Andreas Weimann in last season’s competition. The forward has already opened his League Cup account with the opening goal against Rotherham and the Austrian is 8/1 to do the same against Spurs.

10 – The amount of goals Leicester have scored against east midlands rivals Derby across their last three encounters at the Walkers Stadium, scoring four goals in each of the last two seasons. Leicester to score 4+ goals is 8/1.

1- The amount of League Cup games Jose Mourinho lost in his three full seasons in charge of Chelsea, where he won the competition twice. Chelsea are 2/5 to win against League one Swindon.

2 – The amount of goals West Ham have scored in each of their three home games this season across all competitions, including a 2-0 win over Cardiff at Upton Park. West Ham are 21/10 to score over 1.5 goals when hosting Cardiff again.

5 – Goals in the League Cup already for Peterborough’s Lee Tomlin, who is priced up at 3/1 to score anytime for the Posh away at beleaguered Sunderland.
