EFL Cup quarter final fixtures, previews and tips – 19/20 December

The EFL Cup has reached the last eight stage, with Bristol City meeting Manchester United on Wednesday

We’ve got some midweek EFL Cup action to enjoy, with Arsenal clashing with West Ham on Tuesday evening, while the cameras are at the King Power Stadium for the match between Leicester and Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Chelsea meet Bournemouth on Wednesday for a place in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup, while Bristol City will be hoping to pull off a giant-killing against Manchester United.

QUARTER FINAL FIXTURES

TUESDAY 19 DECEMBER
Arsenal 19:45 West Ham United

David Moyes will be feeling bullish coming into this clash although steering clear of relegation remains the priority and the Hammers might come off worse against an Arsenal side who will be looking to land silverware.

PREDICTION: Arsenal 2 West Ham 1
BETTING TIP: Arsenal win and BTTS @ 21/10 with bet365

Leicester City 19:45 Manchester City
Leicester will have a chance if Pep Guardiola gives the majority of first-team players a night off. Yes, the squad is deep in terms of quality although fringe players often provide a disjointed feel and Shakhtar recently illustrated this in the Champions League.

PREDICTION: Leicester 1 Manchester City 1
BETTING TIP: Leicester +1.5 @ 3/4 with BetVictor

WEDNESDAY 20 DECEMBER
Chelsea 19:45 AFC Bournemouth

Bournemouth will be happy to forsake this competition in exchange for a profitable Christmas in the Premier League and Antonio Conte will be eyeing a semi-final place in what looks to be a strong renewal.

PREDICTION: Chelsea 2 Bournemouth 0
BETTING TIP: Chelsea HT FT @ 10/11 with Ladbrokes

Bristol City 20:00 Manchester United
We like the look of Bristol City to get a result against a United side who are likely to make changes for the trip to Ashton Gate and will have to contend with a lively team who are one of the Championship’s form side.

PREDICTION: Bristol City 1 Manchester United 1
BETTING TIP: Bristol City +1.5 @ 7/8 with Unibet
