That’s what I get for not setting up an open thread for yesterday’s Capital One Cup matches — a thriller between Reading and Arsenal, and plenty of upsets in the League Cup.
I won’t be making that mistake again, so no pressure Chelsea and Manchester United, but we expect to see another 12 goal thriller today.
After all of the kerfuffle from Sunday’s match between Chelsea and Manchester United, let’s hope today’s game is focused on the football on the pitch instead of issues with referees, poor decisions and stewards getting hit. No promises though.
In the other matches, we have Norwich against Tottenham Hotspur, which should be a very entertaining encounter as well as Liverpool against Swansea at Anfield. That one should be a walk in the park for Liverpool with Swansea resting some key players.
