King Of Stats – the numbers ahead of Capital One Cup fourth round

| 29.10.2013

The Capital One Cup may only be at its fourth-round stage, but already only three teams from outside of the Premier League remain in the competition.

However, the King Of Stats is positive that all three could take another step forward in the competition as he identifies some potentially lucrative Capital One Cup bets.

8 – Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have been in opposing dugouts on eight occasions previously and the Frenchman is still to oversee a victory against his Portuguese adversary. It is 7/5 that this record is maintained with a Chelsea victory over Arsenal inside the 90 minutes at the Emirates.

4 – Burnley have won four successive home matches in this competition against Premier League opposition and come into their clash with West Ham on an eight-game winning streak this season. Burnley are 7/5 to beat West Ham in normal time.

4 – Prior to their two goals at Old Trafford, Stoke had gone three games this season without scoring. They head to Birmingham next, which is an away game where they have failed to trouble the scorers in their last four visits. A Birmingham clean sheet is priced at 29/10.

9 – No team has scored fewer than Norwich’s six Premier League goals this season, but they have managed to locate their scoring boots in the Capital One Cup, with nine goals in their two outings. Norwich are 17/4 to score over 1.5 goals when visiting Manchester United in round four.

3 – Leicester have made it through their last four appearances in the fourth round of this competition and the fact they have the best home record in the Championship this season, suggests they can get the better of Fulham. It is 8/11 that Leicester qualify for the fifth round.

5 – The last time Hull reached the fourth round of this competition in 1977/78, they lost 5-1 to Arsenal. It is north London opposition that stand in their way again as they travel to Tottenham. A repeat of that 5-1 triumph is available at 33/1.

8 – Manchester City are on an eight-game winning streak against Newcastle, with five of the last six seeing exactly four goals scored. Man City to win a game that sees over 2.5 goals is priced at 7/5 in the Total Result market.
