Arsenal strolled into the Carbao Cup semi-finals wih a 5-1 win over League One's Sunderland and tonight another six teams vie for a place in the last four of the competition.
Both Tottenham and West Ham's squads should be in decent shape after suffering some outbreaks in recent weeks. David Moyes is desperate to mark his progress at the Hammers with some silverware while Antonio Conte, who was an FA Cup winner as Chelsea boss, is aiming to land Spurs' first piece of silverware since 2008.
There's little between the sides in the Premier League so no result would surprise here. West Ham look the value bet at 5/2 but it'll all hinge on the team news from North London.
Thomas Tuchel is enduring an usually tough time at the moment at Chelsea, who have won just one in five. He'll have up to eight players missing though including Kai Havertz, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell.
Postponements have mean hat Brentford haven't played for almost two weeks. Thomas Frank‘s squad have a clean bill of health and he's expeced to put out a strong line-up. Again it's going to be crucial to keep an eye on the line-ups but if it's second string Chelsea line-up then 13/8 Brentford on the Draw No Bet market could be worth an interest.
Both Jurgen Klopp and Brendan Rodgers have bemoaned the fixture congestion in December so expect them to ring the changes against each other tonight. Liverpool's fringe players have proven more than capable of a number of occasions and can be backed at 4/5 to win inside 90 minutes. For accas, Over 2.5 looks solid at 3/5 – it's a bet that's landed in seven of the last eight meetings.
In Scotland Celtic's price has been absolutely hammered following the news of St Mirren's plight. The Buddies sought, but have been denied, permission to postpone the match after stating they were “unable to field a team for either match with a significant number of first-team players and staff unavailable”
The Hoops are therefore just 1/7 at the time of writing and will no doubt go off even shorter. Over 1 Celtic Goal and Over 6 Celtic Corners stands an excellen chance at even money on a Bet365 BetBuilder.
