Last season’s EFL Cup champions are the favourites to retain their crown once again, with a price of 7/4. Pep Guardiola’s side have not had the best of starts in the league this season, after winning just five of their 12 league games so far, but it's this competition where they tend to celebrate with ease.
The Citizens love the League Cup and a chance to earn the first silverware of the season would be a big boost to the seven-time winners that could get their title challenge back on track.
Guardiola is a serial trophy winner as well, so will still be looking to add another honour on his record list. City travel to the Emirates on Tuesday, looking to get back to winning ways by progressing into the League Cup semi-finals. If they were to clinch the League Cup again, they’d go level with Liverpool with eight competition wins.
City are fortunate they travel to the Emirates where Arsenal are in the worst form they've been in within half a century, and at the same time, City's 'second' team, will likely dismantle Arsenal's main men right now.
