The Carabao Cup continues on Wednesday with two mouth-watering quarter-final ties, the pick of which has to be the north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham.
Over 3.5 goals @ 29/20
After 22 games unbeaten, Arsenal’s run was always going to end and their injury issues at the back eventually caught up with them in Sunday’s 3-2 loss to Southampton.
The Gunners’ recent 4-2 win over Spurs at the Emirates was arguably the pick of their recent streak and will give last season’s beaten finalists the confidence they can bounce back.
As will Unai Emery’s ability to manage his squad, having demonstrated the same aptitude as he displayed in guiding Sevilla to three straight Europa Leagues when looking to juggle his resources this season.
Kane Anytime Goalscorer @ 21/20
Tottenham themselves are going well, winning their last three in the league, while a brilliant 1-1 draw away at Barcelona saw them through to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Talisman Harry Kane has not netted for three games but has an excellent record in these games, with his tally of eight the best in this fixture during the Premier League era.
His duel with opposite number Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (33/10 First Goalscorer), who scored twice in their recent meeting, could highlight what should be a thrilling fixture.
Chelsea to win and both to score @ 6/4
The other game takes place at Stamford Bridge and for the second season in a row, Chelsea take on Bournemouth in the last eight of the Carabao Cup.
Last season resulted in a 2-1 win for the Blues and they were 2-0 winners when the pair met in September. That result has contributed to them staying unbeaten this season at The Bridge.
Defoe to score @ 33/10
However, Bournemouth have a decent record in SW6, winning two of their four Premier League trips to the ground, including a 3-0 victory in January.
Callum Wilson scored the opener on that day but it is Jermain Defoe who is likely to lead the line. The 36-year-old has been linked with a January move away and would love nothing better than to remind the world of how deadly he can be.
Bournemouth’s task might prove too much though, especially as the Cherries’ last away win came on October.
Chelsea have kept clean sheets in their last four at home in all competitions but the changes Maurizio Sarri is expected to make are likely to provide the opposition with chances. However, the Blues’ extra depth should see them through.
