We welcome Norwich for a Wednesday evening kickoff League (Carabao) Cup tie, 19:45 kickoff
After a tricky game against Palace at the weekend, its time to turn our attention to a cup run?
The winner of this game will be into the last 16, and with Brentford playing Arsenal, Man Utd playing Palace, Newcastle playing Man City, Villa playing Everton some of the “big boys” will go out this round, it could get very interesting.
After a successful season, no thought of yo-yos, we look like a comfortable mid-table team even with no Mitro, 6 points from 8 games isn’t a bad return. The League Cup could provide a route to playing European football again, that could be instrumental in keeping players and attracting new ones.
With next Monday’s Chelsea game in mind, I’d rest some players and give game time to others, I’d start Vinicius and, if fit, Adama, Iwobi and Lukić, Ballo-Touré would get his debut. I’d give Palhinha the night off, he’s too important to risk?
Norwich fared worse then uas as they lost their game at the weekend 6-2 to Plymouth Argyle so will be looking to bounce back against us.
