IT'S a big night in the Capital One Cup but check team news before having a bet.

Most sides will make massive changes from their weekend line-ups but Chelsea should be more experienced than Arsenal and are worth a look at 9-5 with bet365 at the Emirates.

Man United should take care of Norwich with David Moyes keen for a good cup run.

And if Burnley put out a full-strength side they could surprise Premiership strugglers West Ham.

Chelsea have more strength in depth than the Gunners and BetVictor’s 15-4 about them winning by one is tempting. Samuel Eto’o is likely to start and is 9-1 at to hit the opener.

Man United are just 4-11 to see off Norwich and if starts consider Javier Hernandez at 4-1 with bet365 and Paddy Power to score first. The Mexican came off the bench to net the winner against Stoke at the weekend but is still behind the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck in the pecking order.

Burnley looked good in beating QPR at the weekend to move three points clear at the top of the Championship and if boss Sean Dyche doesn't make too many changes they can beat a Hammers outfit who have drawn 0-0 three times on the road, including last weekend at Swansea.

The home win pays a best 13-8 at bet365 while top scorer Danny Ings is 5-1 at 888sport to break the deadlock.

Birmingham lie 20th in the Championship but deserve respect at home to Stoke having thrashed Swansea in the last round. Stoke were unlucky at Old Trafford on Saturday but have failed on their last four trips so St Andrews.

If Stoke boss Mark Hughes rests his stars I'll be looking at Birmingham at 3-1 with Betfred.

Leicester have won their last seven at home and face a Fulham side who don't travel but of course hot the dizzy heights with that 4-1 at Crystal Palace last Monday. The joy didn't last long though as they crashed tamely to Southampton on Sunday and of course only edged past League Two Burton on penalties in the second round of this competition.

The Foxes look worth a risk at 11-8 with Paddy Power and Ladbrokes. I'll put up some recommended bets when I get a clearer picture about which teams are putting out strong sides.

    Not sure if this was cleared up as i’ve asked it before, it’s not all that important but something of a puzzler for me as i know little about Scottish football, but what is the connection (if any) between East Stirling, Stirling Albion and Albion Rovers

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      John, there is no connection whatsoever. East Stirling is short for East Stirlingshire and their ground was in Falkirk before they started sharing with Stenhousemuir. Stirling Albion of course play in the city of Stirling and Albion Rovers in Coatbridge, south of Glasgow. Albion Rovers name came when two teams, Albion and Rovers, amalgamated. I find it a slightly amusing question and it’s a little like asking what’s the connection between West Ham and West Brom.

    Like the look of Tours at home to Amiens in the French league cup. Tours strong at home Amiens can’t seem to win. I’m going for Tours -1 at 7-4 with Titanbet

  7. JamesBCFC 7 years ago

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      JamesBCFC, the big teams don’t but not sure about the others.
