Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Will the Owls upset Premier League opposition and move into the last 16?

Following Steve Bruce’s late departure to Newcastle in the summer, Sheffield Wednesday were without a manager to begin their season. Garry Monk was appointed as his replacement earlier this month and he’s taken over a team who were well positioned. The Owls had won three of their first six games and he got off to the perfect start in his first game when winning 2-0 away to struggling Huddersfield. A 1-1 draw at home to Fulham at the weekend was not the worst, either, considering they score in added time to secure a point. Promotion is the aim for Wednesday this season and with them only four points off top spot they will feel it’s been a good start. Their appetite will be even greater this time around with rivals United doing so well in the top-flight.

Wednesday have only had to play one game to reach the third round. The Owls had been drawn against Bury in the first round but that tie was awarded to them due to the financial problems of that opponent. As such, their only cup game so far has been a Yorkshire derby away to League One side Rotherham. It was a very late winner from Atdhe Nuhiu on that occasion, the same player who equalised against Fulham. Should Wednesday defeat Everton on Tuesday it will be the furthest they have gotten in this competition since 2015.

Everton Preview – Can Everton use this cup tie and bounce back from two defeats to kick start their season?

Marco Silva will be hoping the EFL Cup can provide some respite from their Premier League efforts as Everton continue to disappoint. The Goodison Park club invested heavily in their squad once again this summer but their form so far has been poor. Defeats to Bournemouth and Sheffield United in recent weeks has seen them drop to 14th in the table. Considering their was talk of them challenging for Europe and breaking into the top six, it’s well below the expectations and capability of the squad. The club’s supporters are growing increasingly frustrated with performances on the field, too.

The EFL Cup provides a chance for them to find some confidence and form. It’s also a competition that they will feel they can win but have not got a great history in. Like their opponents tomorrow, Everton have played just the one tie so far and it’s one they had to work to get through. League One side Lincoln City were stubborn opponents but the Toffees eventually seen them off to win 4-2 away from home. There’s been too many disappointments for Everton in this competition down the years and defeat here would represent another one.

Sheffield Wednesday v Everton Betting Advice

It’s got all the ingredients for a cup shock this game. The lower league team are in decent form and under the care of a new manager who the players will be looking to impress. Everton, on the other hand, are struggling and appear to be lacking in confidence. The last thing they would have wanted is this sort of game to contend with.

Looking through the quality Everton have in their squad and you wonder how long it will be before they click. There has been no evidence of that happening so far, though, and Wednesday will be another stiff test. They have lost only three of their last 22 home games and they are good value to back draw no bet in this one. To clarify, if the game ends in a draw then the stake will be returned.
