Wednesday's EFL Cup predictions including Manchester United vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Wednesday's EFL Cup fixtures, including Manchester United vs. West Ham United.


Brighton vs. Swansea (Wednesday, 7.30pm)

Brighton & Hove Albion head into their EFL Cup third-round tie with Swansea City looking to build on their outstanding start to the new Premier League campaign.

While the Seagulls sit in the top four of English football's first tier, Swansea are currently down in 21st place in the Championship.

We say: Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 Swansea City


Despite the likelihood of changes being made for this contest, we still expect Brighton to come through this fixture. Swansea have the potential to cause a surprise, but competition for places should inspire a strong Seagulls performance.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Man Utd vs. West Ham (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Three days after renewing hostilities in the Premier League, Manchester United and West Ham United prepare for battle in the third round of the EFL Cup at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men claimed a 2-1 win over the Hammers in the capital on Sunday, with none other than Jesse Lingard scoring the all-important winner.

We say: Manchester United 2-2 West Ham United (Man United to win on penalties)


Man United and West Ham both have bigger fish to fry in the coming weeks, but the visitors will certainly be spurred on by the thought of revenge after Sunday's dramatic defeat.

With fringe players on both sides seeking to stake their claims for regular starting roles, we can envisage an entertaining affair at Old Trafford, with the hosts relying on their penalty prowess to book their spot in round four.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Chelsea vs. Aston Villa (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

After an unbeaten start to the Premier League season, Chelsea will look to kickstart their EFL Cup campaign with a victory on Wednesday, when they welcome Aston Villa to Stamford Bridge.

The visitors have already been through a round of the competition, thrashing fourth-tier Barrow 6-0 in August, while both sides come in on the back of 3-0 victories in the Premier League.

We say: Chelsea 2-0 Aston Villa


Tuchel has developed a well-oiled machine at Stamford Bridge, and they will certainly not want to see their momentum slowed with a cup defeat.

Even if they rest several key players, the Blues still boast more than enough quality to come out of Wednesday's clash unscathed and progress to the next round.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Arsenal vs. AFC Wimbledon (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Arsenal will aim to secure a straightforward route into the last-16 of the EFL Cup when they welcome League One side AFC Wimbledon to the Emirates on Wednesday evening.

The Gunners trounced West Bromwich Albion 6-0 in the second round to advance, while Wimbledon have overcome Charlton Athletic and Northampton Town to get this far.

We say: Arsenal 4-0 AFC Wimbledon


Arsenal are long-overdue a run in the EFL Cup, and one can only begin to imagine what a shock defeat here would mean for Arteta's future in the hotseat.

Wimbledon have looked bright on the attacking front during the early stages of this season, but we still expect a second-string Arsenal XI to cruise through to the next round.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Millwall vs. Leicester (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Leicester City head into their EFL Cup third-round tie with Millwall looking to improve on an inconsistent start to the new season.

The Foxes currently occupy 12th position in the Premier League standings, while Millwall are down in 18th place in the Championship.

We say: Millwall 1-2 Leicester City


Both teams will change things up, something which should lead to an entertaining encounter at The Den. Nevertheless, the Foxes players who feature on Wednesday know that there are spaces available in the first team, and that could lead to a narrow win for the visitors.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Wolves vs. Spurs (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur will both endeavour to recover from demoralising Premier League defeats in Wednesday's EFL Cup third-round encounter at Molineux.

Bruno Lage's side went down 2-0 to Brentford at the weekend, while Spurs were sunk 3-0 by London rivals Chelsea in front of their own fans.

We say: Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Wolves to win on penalties)


Neither Spurs nor Wolves enter this encounter in inspired form, although the visitors can take confidence from their strong record at Molineux and the hosts' goalscoring woes in front of their own fans.

However, we simply cannot separate the two sides on this occasion and expect the tie to be decided from 12 yards, where Wolves could give their fans something to cheer as they knock their former manager out of the tournament.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
