We’ve already seen some of the Premier League’s U21s on the end of a thumping in the EFL Trophy this season and seven of them are in action tonight.

Leicester City and Manchester United’s Academy sides lost 7-1 and 8-1 to Wigan and Bolton respectively in the last round of ties, exposing the gulf that can sometimes be thrown up in this competition.

That said, Spurs’ kids put five past Colchester United and Liverpool’s youngsters ran out 3-0 winners against Morecambe. The latter make the short trip to Blackpool, who should provide a sterner test than the Shrimps, which sees the Reds priced at a huge 13/2.

The one Academy side that catches the eye are the young guns of Arsenal who travel to Exeter City.

The Grecians were thumped 9-0 by Reading in the competition in September and have lost four in a row in the league. They did knock a much-changed Luton Town side out of the Carabao Cup but that’s been the only bright spot recently.

That would suggest Arsenal, who are 3/4 to win, can cause the League One side some problems and get on the scoresheet.

There’s usually goals guaranteed in games featuring the U21 sides. In 23 games so far in the competition 83 goals have been scored, averaging 3.61 goals per game.

So look for a little four-fold featuring the game at Exeter, add in Aston Villa’s kids’ trip to Charlton and the aforementioned Blackpool v Liverpool U21s. Complete the quartet with goals at Reading v Swindon.

    EFL Trophy is always a bit of a minefield especially not knowing which players may be missing for international teams.

    However, a couple of sides look good tonight in terms of playing a stronger side due to not having a game at the weekend.

    Reading to beat Swindon
    Portsmouth to beat Gillingham
    Double @ 2.34 Unibet (NAP)
    Both to score 2+ Goals Double @ 2.28 Unibet (NB)
    Reading -1 Asian Handicap @ 2.15 Unibet

    Swindon have made a host of changes and are pretty much playing a youth team this evening. Reading have also made a number of changes but have a lot of fringe players from the 1st team and who were involved in the opening game 9-0 win against Exeter. Should be too strong tonight for the young team of Swindon. Portsmouth don’t have a game at the weekend and have won this trophy recently so will take it seriously. Gillingham have a load of injuries to deal with at the moment and the priority for them is the game at the weekend away to Walsall.

    Best of luck all

    Both to score in both halves 10/1

    Speculative shots but looks like a potential for goals here.
