Wednesday night’s League Cup games are offering up a host of promising fixtures and we’re gone through the all-Premier League clashes and found a very tasty multi-match Bet Builder.

7.45pm: Arsenal v Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton +1 

Arsenal were brilliant in their win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on Sunday and fully merited their 1-0 victory. The Gunners have been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League this season and seem to be the only team capable of preventing a relentless Manchester City outfit from winning a fifth title in six seasons. However, the Gunners did seem to be struggling a bit with fatigue in their most recent Europa League games, losing convincingly at PSV before stuttering over the line against Zurich. 

It is of paramount importance that Arsenal maintain a lead over City going into the World Cup break and so it is crucial that they beat Wolves on Saturday. Mikel Arteta and Arsenal fans alike are unlikely to care too much about a premature League Cup exit. 

Brighton, on the other hand, have been phenomenal this season and are more than capable of causing an upset at the Emirates, especially if Mikel Arteta rings in the changes. Brighton have already beaten Manchester United and Chelsea, while they were full value for their 3-3 draw at Anfield. They also performed admirably in unfortunate defeats against Tottenham and Manchester City. They will ask plenty of questions on Wednesday night and it is unclear if Arsenal will be able to answer them. 

Leandro Trossard to Score Anytime 

Leandro Trossard appears to save his goals for games against the best teams in the league. The Belgian winger has scored seven league goals this season, with five of them coming against Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City. 

He scored a brilliant hat-trick at Anfield and also scored a brilliant long-range effort in the 3-1 defeat at Manchester City. He is capable of hurting any team on his day and scored in Brighton’s 2-1 win at the Emirates last season. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him do it again on Wednesday. 

7.45pm: Newcastle v Crystal Palace

Newcastle to Win

There just doesn’t seem to be any stopping Newcastle at the moment. Eddie Howe’s side have rocketed up to third in the league following a run of 19 points from their last seven games. Newcastle have won each of their last four games, scoring 11 goals in the process. 

They face a Crystal Palace side that secured their first away win of the season at West Ham on Sunday courtesy of a huge last-minute deflection. Palace had failed to win any of their previous five away games this season, including an earlier trip to St. James’ Park that finished 0-0. It is hard to see anything but a home win on Wednesday when Newcastle are in such form. 

Chris Wood to Score Anytime

Chris Wood came off the bench against Southampton to score his first league goal of the season and is almost certain to start. This feels like the perfect game for Wood, who has played a bit-part role in Newcastle’s season due to the form of Callum Wilson and Miguel Almiron and the big-money arrival of Alexander Isak. 

Wood is unlikely to ever be a consistent starter in this Newcastle outfit but he is an ideal player to bring in for cup games, especially in the early rounds. The New Zealander scored in the League Cup win over Tranmere Rovers and is a good bet to score again in the competition on Wednesday. He is a proven goalscorer and his goal on Sunday should give him some momentum going into this clash.

7.45pm Nottingham Forest v Spurs

Tottenham to win

Nottingham Forest absolutely do not need an unnecessary run in a cup competition that they have no chance of winning. Forest are well and truly in a relegation battle and can do without any distractions between now and the end of the season. Steve Cooper’s side have a huge game against Crystal Palace coming up at the weekend in their last game before the World Cup and it would be a shock if Cooper went all-out to beat Tottenham on Wednesday. 

Spurs, on the other hand, could do with a pick-me-up after suffering a third defeat in four league games against Liverpool on Sunday. The early-season optimism has well and truly been eroded now and Antonio Conte has serious work to do over the World Cup break if they are to remain in the hunt for the Champions League places. 

They have a must-win game against Leeds on Saturday and will hope to go into that game on the back of a win rather than a run of four defeats in five domestic games. Spurs simply have more motivation to win on Wednesday than Forest and that could make all the difference.
