Carabao Cup Semi-Final Preview3 min read
The 2nd leg of the Carabao Cup is the feature midweek with just one of the final places at Wembley next month up for grabs after holders Manchester City built an unassailable lead against League One Burton Albion at the Etihad.
Burton Albion v Manchester City
It took the Brewers just seven seconds to have their first shot on target in the first leg at the Etihad, but it would be fair to say that things went downhill after that. I hope the Albion can find the back of the City net, but I expect the holders to go through in style even though City boss, Pep Guardiola is likely to rotate his squad at the Pirelli Stadium.
City to win and both teams to score at
Correct Score: 1-3
Chelsea v Spurs
Spurs have won their last three games against rivals Chelsea, but I expect the Blues to bounce back after their disappointing reverse at the Emirates on Saturday evening – although Arsenal were outstanding on the night and thoroughly deserved the three points.
It promises to be tight and tense at the Bridge and remember, away goals do not count in the competition this season. Chelsea to get a narrow win for me in a tie I feel could go all the way to extra-time and penalties.
Correct Score: 1-0
