Carabao Cup Round-Up: 26/09/2018

Arsenal vs Brentford

Arsenal will be looking to continue make it six wins on the bounce in all competitions on Wednesday evening, when they welcome Championship outfit Brentford to the Emirates Stadium. Unai Emery’s team defeated Everton 2-0 on Sunday afternoon, while the Bees lost 3-1 against Derby County away from home. Despite being expected to make a number of changes for this clash, the Gunners are favourites to win here, being priced at 1/3 with Bet365 to make it to the fourth round of the League Cup. Brentford aren’t fancied for victory here, with BetVictor offering 9/1 for an away win in this contest.

Liverpool vs Chelsea

The standout tie of the third round of the Carabao Cup comes at Anfield when Liverpool meet Chelsea on Wednesday night. Both teams are unbeaten in the Premier League so far this season and face each other on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, meaning it is unlikely that they will both play full-strength sides in this midweek clash. Liverpool are slight favourites with the bookmakers at this moment in time, being best-priced at 10/11 with Bet365 to earn their place in the next round. As for Chelsea, they can be backed at 58/19 with Unibet to go and win at Anfield this weekend.

Nottingham Forest vs Stoke

Two Championship teams meet at the City Ground in the Carabao Cup, in which the home team will look to continue their excellent form. They won 1-0 at home to Rotherham at the weekend thanks to Lewis Grabban’s late penalty, with the forward now scoring two goals in as many games for his new side. Stoke meanwhile are really struggling, losing 3-2 at home to Blackburn last time out and are priced at 15/8 to win with Ladbrokes and William Hill in this contest. Nottingham Forest are favourites at 29/20 with SkyBet and we’re backing them to continue their solid form.

Recommended bet: Nottingham Forest win to nil at 10/3 with SkyBet – BET HERE

West Ham United vs Macclesfield Town

The most one-sided game on paper in the Carabao Cup takes place at the London Stadium, with West Ham United facing Macclesfield Town. West Ham have improved in recent games, taking four points from their last two matches with Everton and Chelsea and should comfortably win here. Manuel Pellegrini’s men are overwhelming favourites, being best priced at 3/19 with Unibet. As for Macclesfield, they are bottom of League Two and have lost all five of their away games in the league so far. An unlikely win is priced at 30/1 with Betfair.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford

Tottenham Hotspur controversially take on Watford at Stadium MK in the Carabao Cup, in what is the second meeting of the two clubs this season. In the previous meeting, Watford came out 2-1 winners at Vicarage Road, although it is the hosts who are favoured to win in the betting markets. Tottenham are best-priced at 1/2 with William Hill in this contest, despite this game being played at a neutral venue and having already lost to Watford this term. The Hornets have value at 7/1 with Bet365, but we feel as if they can get a result from this contest, particularly with both teams expected to rotate.

Recommended bet: Draw at 19/5 with BetVictor – BET HERE
