Best bets for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup games

| 18.12.2017

A trip to Wembley is almost in sight for the eight sides left in the Carabao Cup.

The quarter-finals take place this week, featuring seven top-flight sides and Bristol City as the sole Football League representative.

Tuesday brings a London derby as Arsenal host West Ham United. Leicester City face league leaders Manchester City in a tasty tie.

Ahead of the action, here are our top tips for both games.

Arsenal v West Ham

These two sides played out a 0-0 draw at the London Stadium just last week.

But with both teams set to make changes and away from the pressure of the league, there’s likely to be more action here.

There’s also the added spice of it being a cup tie between two London clubs.

As Arsenal have won five of their last six home games against the Hammers, Arsenal to Win and Both Sides to Score could be a smart pick at 2/1.

Olivier Giroud has largely had to make do with starts in the cup competitions this season. The big striker is 14/5 to score First at the Emirates.

Javier Hernandez could also be in line for his first start under David Moyes. He’s 5/2 to score Anytime.

Leicester City v Man City

Man City look set to storm their way to the Premier League title. However, it might be different in the cup.

Guardiola is likely to give a chance to several fringe players and promising youngsters at the King Power Stadium.

The likes of Bernardo Silva and Yaya Toure would get into most Premier League sides, but Leicester could exploit a makeshift defence.

City are odds-on 2/5 favourites. But there’s little value there and this is a cup tie. Leicester/Draw in the Double Chance market at 15/8 looks tempting.

There have been at least three goals in both clubs’ last three games – Over 3.5 Goals could come in at 27/20.

Who’ll get those goals?

This could be Kelechi Iheanacho’s chance to shine against his former club. The young striker is 13/5 as an Anytime Goalscorer.
