EFL Cup holders Manchester City welcome EFL League One side Wycombe Wanderers to the Etihad Stadium this Tuesday for a third-round tie in the Carabao Cup. Man City have bigger fish to fry this season, but they have an excellent recent record in this competition and will be looking for another easy EFL Cup win in midweek. As you would expect, the Premier League champions are the overwhelming favourites, with the bookies offering just 1/14 for a home victory. Check out our in-depth betting preview.

Manchester City Preview – Citizens to return to winning ways in style?

After four straight league and cup wins, Manchester City drew a blank at the weekend, drawing 0-0 with Southampton in a Premier League game at the Etihad Stadium. City have already dropped five league points this term.

On a more positive note, before last Saturday’s surprise goalless draw with the Saints, City had won three out of three at the Etihad, scoring a staggering 16 goals in the process. The Premier League and UEFA Champions League will be the priorities this season, but Pep Guardiola’s men are notoriously strong in this competition, and City will no doubt be looking to go far again.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to win both halves

(odds taken 1608 GMT, Monday 20 September)

After the frustrating stalemate last time out, Man City will be on the lookout for a big win in the cup in front of their home fans. Wycombe could be on the wrong end of a backlash at the Etihad.

Wycombe Wanderers Preview – Can the Chairboys cause an almighty cup upset?

Wycombe Wanderers’ time in the EFL Championship was a short one, but Gareth Ainsworth’s troops will be looking for an instant return to the second tier. They are in fifth spot in League One at the moment, winning four, drawing two and losing one of their opening seven games.

Wycombe needed penalties in both of their EFL Cup wins thus far. After a 0-0 draw at Exeter City in normal time in round one, the Chairboys won 4-3 on penalties. They scored late to take Stevenage to spot kicks in the second round and prevailed 5-3 on penalties.

Like most smaller clubs that take on Man City these days, Wycombe will enjoy the occasion against one of Europe’s elite, but it will no doubt be a tough day at the office for the Buckinghamshire side. The bookies have the away win priced at 22/1.
