Football tips: Our 8/1 tasty treble for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup ties

Another night of fun in the Carabao. Drink it in.


What’s better than a midweek Carabao Cup evening in September? ‘Surely nothing, Andrew,’ I hear you reply. Well, you’d be wrong my friends. How about three midweek Carabao Cup evenings in September?

Count your blessings – soon these evenings will be reserved for your Liverpool and Man United-supporting mates to boast foreign trips to play in elite European competition.

So don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t indulge in your side’s backroad journey to Rochdale!

Here’s a four-fold for Wednesday’s action.

7pm: Ipswich v Fulham – Fulham to Win

After an appalling opening day showing against Arsenal, Scott Parker is sure to start Alexsandar Mitrovic, who he rested against the Gunners and that’s probably all the motivation you need to back them here – an angry Serb walking through the lanes of Ipswich. What a sight.

7.45pm: Leeds v Hull – Hull and the Draw

Going from the most boring addition to the Premier League in Fulham to the most exciting – Marcelo Bielsa. He’s only been in our top tier lives a week and we’re already wondering what life was like before him.

After a taxing trip to Liverpool he’s bound to send in a pack of 18-year-olds from the academy and for this Yorkshire derby.

While Southampton weren’t disgraced by any stretch, they did lack any form of spark, and while big Ralph might have designs on filtering in some fringe players, the Saints have quietly one of the deeper squads in the league and the drop-off between starting XI and the bench isn’t as big as it would be with some clubs.
