We pick our best bets for Tuesday in the EFL Cup and League One with odds at bet365.
Leicester City v Liverpool - League Cup - 19:45
If Leicester City want a return to European competition, a possible chance could be through giving the League Cup a go this season. The Foxes have won the last two meetings against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool at the King Power Stadium, the Reds look set to rest key personnel ahead of their clash against the Foxes in the Premier League and their away trip in the Champions League against Spartak Moscow.
Sadio Mane remains suspended for Liverpool but we could see Daniel Sturridge return to the starting line-up for the Reds. Leicester played a decent side in their 4-1 League Cup win at Sheffield United, including the likes of Demarai Gray, Andy King, Islam Slimani and Leonardo Ulloa. The Foxes have performed well at the King Power against Liverpool in recent years, we fancy them at a decent price on Tuesday.
Wolves v Bristol Rovers - League Cup - 19:45
Wolves eased their way past Premier League side Southampton in the previous round of the League Cup and we expect Nuno Espirito Santo's side to beat Bristol Rovers convincingly at Molineux tonight. Wolves have made a solid start to the season and have lost just once in all comps this season.
Bristol Rovers secured an impressive win at Fulham in the previous round but Fulham have failed to impress in all comps this season and especially at Craven Cottage. Not many expected Wolves to beat a Saints side that boasted Charlie Austin, James Ward-Prowse, Dusan Tadic and Sofiane Boufal but it was an impressive performance to win 2-0 on the South Coast. If Wolves can replicate a similar display, they'll dispatch Bristol Rovers comfortably on Tuesday night.
Wigan Athletic v Northampton - League One - 19:45
Wigan can continue their fine start to the season with another league win at the DW Stadium against Northampton on Tuesday evening. Paul Cook's side are in contention for promotion back to the Championship and will look to make up ground with their game-in-hand and close in on league leaders Shrewsbury Town.
Northampton have looked much better under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink after a poor start to the season with four defeats in their opening four league games but the Cobblers are unbeaten in three under Hasselbaink with two wins. However, they squandered a two-goal lead at Southend last time out, drawing 2-2 with Matt Crooks sent off for Northampton. Wigan have won five of their seven league games this season and are unbeaten in eight at home in all comps. Routine home win for Wigan.
