Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Reading live streaming: Match preview
There are a total of eight Carabao Cup matches on tonight
following eight yesterday evening.
Wolves come into this match after a very busy start to the season in the Europa League who are struggling in the Premier League, with the exertions of the Europa League seemingly having an effect.
Wolves bagged a late draw at Crystal Palace on Sunday, the home side are very likely to make wholesale changes, with an eye on their home match with Watford on Saturday.
Reading meanwhile, are 20th in the Championship, and come into this match off the back of three defeats in a row. Wins over Wycombe Wanderers (on penalties) and Plymouth Argyle, have secured Reading’s spot in the third round of the Carabao Cup.
Chelsea vs Grimsby
Chelsea and the six other Premier League clubs involved in European competition join the Carabao Cup competition this week. The blue’s are taking on Lincolnshire’s Grimsby Town, currently ninth in League Two. This is the furthest they have come in the competition since 2005/06, when they saw off Tottenham only to lose to Newcastle.
Tottenham, Burnley, Newcastle, Norwich and Palace may ultimately find consolation in the space freed up in their calendar to pursue higher priorities.
The Blues are London’s first winners of the League Cup and the capital’s most successful club in this competition, with five successes.
Preview: Manchester United vs. Rochdale – prediction, team news, lineups
Manchester United and Rochdale come from different footballing worlds but will be brought together by the EFL Cup.
In the aftermath of the collapse of Bury and the near-demise of Bolton Wanderers, this is also a welcome money-spinner for one of Lancashire’s smaller clubs, as well as a chance for United to target a second cup competition win this season.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Romero; Dalot, Tuanzebe, Jones, Rojo; Fred, Matic, McTominay, Gomes, Chong; Lingard
Rochdale possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Matheson, McNulty, O’Connell, Norrington-Davies, Williams; Rathbone, Dooley, Camps, Pyke; Henderson
