Michael Owen to score at any time against Aldershot Town – Evens

Michael Owen is proving to be Sir Alex Ferguson’s Carling Cup specialist with six goals in six games for Manchester United in the competition, including an impressive brace in the last round against Leeds. With the Englishman desperate to prove his worth to Sir Alex and United looking to respond strongly after the Demolition Derby, evens is good value for Owen to deliver at the Recreation Ground on Tuesday.

Manchester City to score in both halves at Wolves – 10/11

Roberto Mancini’s men will be looking to build on their wonderful start to the season when they travel to Wolves on Wednesday night. With Mick McCarthy’s men likely to be more focussed on what already looks to be a relegation battle, and with City’s impressive squad looking to make their mark, the team from Manchester look good value to put Wanderers to the sword and score in both halves. Wolves have conceded six in their last three games and won’t be looking forward to the prospect of facing a buoyant City.

Liverpool to win at Stoke City – 6/5

The fixture list is really starting to pile up against Stoke. Their European adventures, coupled with some testing league fixtures are bound to take their toll on Tony Pulis’s limited squad. Liverpool, meanwhile, have shown that they are taking the Carling Cup seriously with some very strong team selections in the previous rounds, leaving Kenny Dalglish’s Reds as the value bet in this fixture.
Bet365 odds

Louis Saha to score any time against Chelsea – 7/4

There aren’t many strikers who enjoy facing Chelsea more than Louis Saha. The Frenchman has netted five times in his last seven Premier League matches against the Blues – and with the forward expressing his delight that he ended his recent drought with his late goal at Fulham, he will be looking to continue the trend when he comes up against a depleted Chelsea on Wednesday night.

The long shot: Everton to beat Chelsea – 21/10

With the Blues smarting from their 1-0 defeat by Queens Park Rangers at the weekend, today’s speculative long-range drive is for André Villas-Boas’s men to suffer consecutive disappointments with a Carling Cup loss at Everton on Wednesday. David Moyes’s side will be buoyed by their late, late win at Craven Cottage and will be desperate for an outlet after a slow start in the league. Chelsea, meanwhile, will be without Didier Drogba and José Bosingwa after the pair were sent off during Sunday’s defeat – and also Ashley Cole, who picked up a yellow card too many at the weekend.
