Recommended Posts



The EFL Cup 3rd Round is finally set to take place this week. It feels like an age ago that we had the 2nd Round but here we are! The odds for those games can be found above. Hit us with any predictions you have for these fixtures. Manchester City versus Chelsea is the pick of the ties but it'll also be interesting to see how Manchester United handle Aston Villa at home after suffering a 3-1 loss away to them on Sunday.

Arsenal vs Brighton

Buoyed by their previous result, Arsenal will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-0 Premier League victory against Chelsea. The London Derby success kept the Gunners on the top of the Premier League table and two points ahead of Manchester City. Fewer than three goals per game were seen in 5 of the last six meetings where Arsenal has been involved. Regarding the goal weighting during this period, opposing sides scored an aggregate of 3, and Arsenal managed a tally of 9. Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just a single fitness concern for the Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Emile Smith Rowe (Groin Surgery) is out of contention.

Brighton will go into the clash after a 3-2 Premier League win against Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous match. It was their second straight victory which saw them climb to 6th spot. The stats tell the story, and Brighton has been scored against in 5 of their last six matches, with opponents netting nine goals in all. Defensively, Brighton & Hove Albion have seen their frailties exposed. That sort of pattern might not be continued into this match, though. Thanks to a largely healthy group, there is just one fitness issue for the Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi to contend with. Jakub Moder (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.

After a great start in the Premier League, Arsenal will be fully focused on the title race. Therefore, the hosts will certainly make several changes in the lineup to rest the most important players. That’s why we believe a solid Brighton side might return home with a win.

Goals Market Prediction

The away side has been involved in several high-scoring matches lately, and they might continue that trend. We expect to see at least a goal in each net at Emirates Stadium.

Brighton to Win @ 4.85

BTTS Yes @ 1.85

Correct score 1:2 @ 15.00

Manchester City vs Chelsea

Manchester City is hoping to win again following the 2-1 Premier League success versus Fulham. That hard-fought victory kept them just two points behind Arsenal. Their latest results really do illustrate the point that much solidity has been shown by the Manchester City backline. Manchester City has been miserly, with the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their last six outings standing at 4. The Citizens aim for the fourth win in a row in all competitions, and the Blues stand in their way. Regarding the availability issues, Kalvin Phillips (Shoulder Injury) and Kyle Walker (Groin Injury) will be missing for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

After being beaten in their last game against Arsenal in Premier League competition, Chelsea will be aiming to make amends here. It was their second straight defeat and the fourth game without winning in the Premier League, which saw the Blues drop to 7th place. The stats tell the story, and Chelsea has been scored against in 5 of their last six games, conceding eight goals overall. In defense, Chelsea could really do with shoring things up. It will be interesting to see if that trend can be sustained in this game. Another tough challenge is ahead of them, but Chelsea wants to turn around its fortune.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Although Manchester City will likely rotate a lot in this game, the Citizens still have a lot of quality players that can bring success. Therefore, we don't think Chelsea is capable of returning home to London undefeated.

Goals Market Prediction

Chelsea has had a lot of defensive issues lately, while Manchester City is doing well in the final third. That's why we believe the crowd at Etihad Stadium will see at least three goals in total.

Manchester City to Win @ 1.46

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.65

Correct score 2:1 @ 8.50
