It’s been an enthralling start to the week already as Liverpool got themselves kicked out of the FA Cup last night, but it’s time for the Carabao cup now and here are Sir Kay’s Predictions for the 1st round of Semi-final clashes that will take place tonight and tomorrow.
Tottenham vs Chelsea (Tuesday, 7:45 pm)
Tottenham have been funny lately, they win when you expect them to lose or draw, and lose points when you expect them to win.
They thrashed both Everton and Bournemouth and we expected them to deal easily with Wolves and they got beaten in a disappointing fashion.
Chelsea has also struggled recently in front of goal as they are not scoring enough goals as one would expect them to but they would definitely be glad to see Alvaro Morata getting some goals last weekend as he has really been short on confidence in recent times. Chelsea has a good record in cup competitions at Wembley but I just don’t see them defeating Spurs here after humbling Lincoln on Friday evening by 7 goals.
Sir Kay Predicts: Tottenham 3-1 Chelsea
Man City vs Burton Albion (Wednesday 7:45 pm)
Man City have really got their act together now and seem to have taken a lot of confidence from their victory against Liverpool last week.
Burton will be the underdogs for this game and would be looking to sit back, soak the pressure and catch City on the counter.
With the luxury of having everyone back for this game with the exception of Benjamin Mendy who could return in two to three weeks, the Noisy neighbors of Manchester United will be aiming at securing the first piece of silverware which is up for grabs this season by, laying down a marker in this tie.
I see nothing but a Man City win here with lots of goals as they will want to finish the match off in the first leg.
Sir Kay Predicts: Man City 6-1Burton
