The Capital One cup returns today with some potentially interesting matches tonight. At this stage of the competition, coaches generally seize the opportunity of the competition to give first team opportunities to young players.
Chelsea face Stoke in what is sure to be a tricky tie as they hope to avoid another loss today. There’s no denying there’s a lot of pressure on Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho following his team’s loss to West Ham during the weekend.
Chelsea need to recover their form and return to winning ways but Stoke City are notoriously tough customers who generally do not lie down and play dead.
Elsewhere, in-form Arsenal take on Sheffield Wednesday as the Gunners look to extend their winning streak across all competitions. Sheffield Wednesday have also been doing well under new manager Carlos Carvalhal.
Jamie Vardy’s red hot form is sure to have Hull City worried as Leceister face Hull City this evening. Leceister have made a fantastic start to the BPL this season, cementing their reputation as comeback kings after snatching many a result from the jaws of impending losses.
