Arsenal 7/2 to win Capital One Cup

Arsene Wenger's men are worthy favourites

Coral make Arsenal their 7/2 favourites to lift the Capital One cup, following the Gunners remarkable comeback against Reading. The Gunners were staring elimination from the competition in the face at 4-0 down, but an injury-time equaliser from Theo Walcott, helped Arsenal to eventually progress through to the quarter-finals, via extra-time.

Chelsea, who host Manchester United on Wednesday evening, are 9/2 with Liverpool 11/2 to claim a ninth League Cup title.

"At 4-0 nobody would have thought Arsenal would have eventually progressed, but with the Gunners now having their name in the hat for the quarter-final draw, Arsene Wenger's men are worthy favourites," said Coral's Tim Reynolds.

"Our attentions now turn to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening to see if Chelsea can avenge last Sunday's defeat to Manchester United. It's 5-4 for Chelsea to win in 90 minutes and 2-1 for a player to see red," added Reynolds.

Aston Villa are now 9/1 (from 18/1) to win the Capital One cup after they survived a late comeback to overcome League One side, Swindon Town. Leeds, who beat Premier League strugglers, Southampton, are 18/1 with Middlesbrough now 16/1 (from 50-1) following their victory over their bitter rivals, Sunderland.
