Leeds United Preview – Easy EFL Cup win for the Whites?

Leeds United started their Premier League campaign with an impressive performance at the home of the champions last weekend. It was a seven-goal thriller at Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool just edging it 4-3. Leeds equalised three times on Merseyside.

Leeds were the top dogs in the Championship last season, winning the title with 93 points to their name. On their way to the trophy, United had the best home record in the league. Bielsa’s men won 15 of 23 league matches, including a 2-0 win over Hull City in December.

Our betting prediction:
Leeds to score 4+ goals

The Premier League will take priority, but Leeds could be one to watch out for in the cup competitions this season. The Yorkshire outfit will be hoping to start their 2020-21 Carabao Cup journey with a comfortable home victory on Wednesday.

Hull City Preview – Can the Tigers upset Leeds at Elland Road?

Hull City were a Premier League club themselves not so long ago, but after a disastrous 2019-20 campaign in the Championship, the Tigers now ply their trade in the third tier of English football.

Hull were dreadful in the second half of last season, losing a staggering 16 of their last 20 league matches. Only four sides picked up fewer away points, while Grant McCann’s men had the worst home record in the division.

Leeds will take plenty of heart from their showing at Anfield last time out, and they should be far too strong for Hull at Elland Road in the cup in midweek. We fancy Bielsa’s boys to bully the Tigers on Wednesday – take a punt on the hosts to win both halves at 12/5.

Leeds’ Roberts netted twice in the last meeting between the two back in February. Back the Wales international to score first in this one at the tempting price of 11/2.
