Some of the key games will be -

Swansea vs Manchester United 

  • United are the current champions of the EFL Cup and will be looking to bounce back after their embarrassing defeat at Huddersfield Town at the weekend, which was their first league defeat this season
  • Swansea (15th in the PL table with 8 points in 9 games) faces United (tied at 2nd in PL with 20 points in 9 games) in their second encounter this season. The last one was dominated by United as they beat Swansea 4-0 at the Liberty stadium
  • Swansea have proven to be tough opponents for United with their last 8 encounters giving the Swans 3 wins and a draw

Arsenal vs Norwich City 

  • After a boisterous 5-2 thumping of Everton on Sunday, Arsenal looks to be back in form after what was a disappointing start to the league season
  • With chances of winning the Premier League looking bleak for the London giants, the Carabao Cup could be a key trophy for Wenger this season to justify his position at the helm of Arsenal
  • Last 8 games between Arsenal and Norwich - 5 wins for Arsenal, 2 draws, 1 win for Norwich

Chelsea vs Everton 

  • Ronald Koeman (Everton's manager) looks to save his job after their team's 2-5 defeat at home at the hands of Arsenal on Sunday saw them drop down to the relegation zone of the PL table
  • Last 3 games between the two have been all Chelsea victories with Chelsea scoring 10 goals and Everton scoring 0
  • Just like Wenger, Koeman will also be looking at the EFL and the FA Cups for any silverware this season
