Chelsea and Man City joint League Cup favourites
Manchester City and Chelsea are now the joint favourites to lift this season’s Capital One Cup after coming through tough quarter-finals against Newcastle and Arsenal this week.
Both teams are now available at 3/1 with Bet365 to win the tournament as they head into the quarter-final stages. City needed extra-time to come through their battle with Newcastle at St James’ Park whilst Chelsea were impressive in defeating Arsenal 2-0.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side now travel to Championship side Leicester in the last eight whilst Jose Mourinho is yet to learn his fate as Chelsea must go to either Sunderland or Southampton although they will start as strong favourites against either team.
Manchester United (4/1 with Bet Victor) and Tottenham (4/1 with Sky Bet) are just behind the favourites after the Red Devils battered Norwich on Tuesday and Spurs squeezed past Hull on penalties on Wednesday.
United face a potentially tricky trip to Stoke in the quarter-finals whilst Spurs are the only one of the favourites to enjoy a home time although it is no easy one as they take on West Ham at White Hart Lane.
The final last 16 clash between Sunderland and Southampton takes place on 6 November at the Stadium of Light and the visiting Saints are the favourites for victory at a best price of 6/5 with Paddy Power.
