Bristol City vs Manchester City

Bristol City pushed Manchester City all the way in the first leg and it was only an injury time winner from Sergio Aguero that gave the Citizens the 2-1 win going into this leg. Both teams have faltered in the league since the first leg with hit and miss performances. At Ashton Gate, it feels like there is a slightly stronger chance of an upset. However, a lot could depend on the fitness of Bristol City duo Frank Fielding and Nathan Baker. Both could miss out but will undergo last minute fitness tests. The home side will want all their first team available and a large chunk of luck if they are to turn this around. Stranger things have happened but City looked more like their old selves against Newcastle on the weekend. This could be a game where the away side will get through it with what they need. It might not be pretty but I fully expect Manchester City to sneak at least the draw that is needed to progress but they should win if they play to their normal expected capabilities.

Arsenal vs Chelsea

The second semi-final in the EFL Cup is set to take place tomorrow night and it's finely balanced with the scores at 0-0. Arsene Wenger's side are always a force unknown in betting terms. They are just as likely to tear Chelsea apart as they are to get destroyed by them. The statistics don't make for kind reading for Blues fans. Chelsea are yet to beat Arsenal in the last five meetings. In fact, Conte has only recorded one victory in seven matches against Wenger since he became Chelsea gaffer. The last three games have been draws. Any doubt about how the departure of Sanchez would have affected Arsenal was thrown out of the window when the Gunners stormed to a 4-1 win against Crystal Palace in a fine display on the weekend. Chelsea are a different proposition and it will be tougher for the home side to play with such freedom. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is cup-tied so we will have to wait to see how he fits into the system. However, Ramsey and Monreal could both feature overcoming illness and injury. Chelsea will be without the mis-firing Morata and Fabregas but Christensen is back to add defensive stability. This is a tricky game to call but I'm going to take a punt and say it will be a high-scoring game with Arsenal just sneaking it.

Match Time:1/25/2018 04:00 Thursday (GMT+8)

Although Chelsea played 3-0 in a row in January, the blues remained unbeaten in their last 12 competitive matches, taking seven wins. The advantage is that Chelsea every draw from 1:1, but only after 120 minutes. The Blues left the better impression lately and I assume that they will prevail at the latest after the extension.

Pick: Chelsea 0
