Chelsea and Man City Favourites to Progress in the Capital One Cup Quarter Finals
There are two matches being played in the Capital One Cup Quarter Finals this evening in Sunderland v Chelsea and Leicester v Man City. My thoughts on both matches are as follows.
Sunderland v Chelsea:
This is the second meeting of these two teams at the Stadium of Light in less than two weeks after the thrilling 4-3 win for Chelsea that saw Edin Hazard steal the show with two goals, an assist and a man of the match performance that made the difference between the two sides. While Jose Mourinho is likely to rest players for this match tonight due to him being more concerned with the away game at Arsenal that could see his side go top of the table for Christmas, if other results go his way, but he’ll still want to continue a winning run over Sunderland that sits at six games already.
GR88.com favour the away win this evening and their Sunderland v Chelsea betting odds reflect how they see this match going:
Sunderland to win – 5.30
Draw – 3.70
Chelsea to win – 1.52
Sunderland will too have their eye on the Premier League with them sat bottom of the table and five points away from safety so they are likely to rest players too with a vital match at home to Norwich coming up at the weekend. The difference between the sides is the strength in depth in the teams and I can see this being the thing that separates the teams on the night and with Chelsea having a much better array of talent I am backing the away side to win again and to do so with a few goals scored too.

Leicester v Man City:
This match has a different feel about it as, just like both Sunderland and Chelsea, Premier League side Man City are likely to rest players for this Capital One Cup Quarter Finals match at the King Power Stadium but the home side will not and will fancy their chances at claiming an upset over one of the title favourites.
GR88.com disagree though and their Leicester v Man City betting odds are as below:
Leicester City to win – 7.40
Draw – 4.50
Manchester City to win – 1.34
City appear to have gotten a handle on their away form with the 3-2 win at the Allianz Arena last week against Bayern Munich one of the high points of the season that has seen them lose at Cardiff, Aston Villa and Sunderland this season. Leicester have impressed at home in front of their fans with just one loss in 12 matches at Championship level and I feel that they will challenge City this evening. City should win the match, but with them resting players and being away from home I cannot see this being a comfortable victory for the visitors this evening.
