Manchester united vs Charlton
A place in the EFL Cup semis will be at stake when Manchester United and Charlton face each other at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening. The Red Devils are eyeing their eighth consecutive win in all competitions, and the bookies see them as hot favourites to make it to the EFL Cup semis. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be in-form attacker Marcus Rashford, who sealed the FA Cup triumph over Everton, while Bruno Fernandes is banned for the match. Donny van de Beek is a major doubt, with both Jadon Sancho and Axel Tuanzebe missing out with injuries.
The Red Robins set up a meeting with Man Utd by shocking Brighton in the quarter-finals, but it has to be noted that the Seagulls failed to turn their dominance into goals. Given Man Utd’s splendid form, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. Sean Clare is back from suspension, while all Ashley Maynard-Brewer, Diallang Jaiyesimi, and Mandela Egbo are sidelined with injuries. Chuks Aneke will be assessed ahead of the kick-off
Leicester city vs New castle united
Leicester City will look to get their revenge on Newcastle United for a heavy Premier League defeat (0-3) when the two teams face each other in the EFL Cup quarter-finals on Tuesday. The Magpies aim to recover from the FA Cup loss to Sheffield Wednesday, and they will give 100% to put an end to their three-match winless run in all competitions. All Trippier, Almiron, and Guimaraes should be recalled to the starting XI, while Allan Saint-Maximin (illness) and Jonjoo Shelvey (calf injury) remain on the sidelines.
The Foxes, on the other hand, aim to save the season by going all the way in the EFL Cup, but seeing that Newcastle have turned their St. James’ Park in to a real fortress, we are tempted to put our money on the home side. Tuesday’s clash comes too early for Dennis Praet, with James Maddison missing out with injury as well. Kelechi Iheanacho could keep his place up front after scoring the winner in the FA Cup triumph over Gillingham
