THAT'S the FA Cup weekend over and now we move to the EFL Cup semi-finals.
First up is Man United v Man City with Leicester v Aston Villa tomorrow – and these remember are first-leg affairs.
I've got quite a bit riding on Leicester who I'm convinced will take care of Villa at home. Two parts of my Top Treble won last night – Arsenal and btts at Napoli – so a Leicester victory would give me a welcome 6.9pts boost.
I also posted a Super Single on Leicester -1 so here's hoping both land. Check out SlipTips' Leicester vs Aston Villa match preview here.
The Manchester derby is tougher to call and both to score could be the way to go. We don't need to worry about team news as both will field their strongest line-ups but I'm finding it difficult to pick a winner.
The concenus seems to be a Man City win or draw and both to score and United fans see m to be happy Romero is replacing De Gea in goal. A good stat in the Racing Post today is the fact six of the last seven first-leg semi-finals featuring Premier League sides have gone under 2.5 goals so it could be cagey,
Kevinmac has had a go at picking a winner so check out his Man United vs Man City match preview here.
United will feel confident about facing their rivals after beating them 2-1 at the Etihad in the league but City are the better and more consistent team and will fancy a bit of revenge but I'm just going to watch this one.
Elsewhere there's not much to look at with Doncaster vs Shrewsbury in League One and some EFL Trophy and National League games – HullShaker's best bet is both to score and overs at Altrincham and other tips I've seen include both to score at Hartlepool, Boston to win and Shrewsbury not to lose.
I'm quite happy to have no bets tonight and keep my powder dry for Leicester tomorrow.
Well done to all the winners on a quiet Monday and good luck tonight.
