Capital One League Cup Predictions: Round 3

Premier League Picks and Predictions 2013-14

With the Capital One Cup kicking off again with round three I will be focusing on predictions for matches involving Premier League clubs. This is mostly due to the fact that I know much more about the EPL clubs and not as much about the lower league teams.

Often times teams will field a “B” squad for the League Cup matches as well as using it as a way to bring through young talent and get them some playing time. I could certainly see this happening with most of the EPL clubs, but they will need to be careful since many lower league teams see this as a great way to upset the bigger clubs.

Several of the matches will be shown on beIN SPORT so be sure to check those out.

Interestingly enough, there are only two matches during the week that don’t involve Premier League teams with Burnley v Nottingham Forest and Leicester City v Derby County.

In all of the other matches there are certainly chances for upsets and there are several EPL teams that have struggled with their seasons. This could be a chance for them to get a bit of a boost, or it could see them sink even further. Two of the biggest matches will be the FA Cup final rematch between Manchester City v Wigan Athletic in which I believe City will triumph.

Even bigger than that, though, is the Northwest Derby rematch between Manchester United v Liverpool. I expect Moyes to give several youngsters some starts (including Adnan Januzaj and Wilfred Zaha) alongside veterans such as Giggs.
