EFL Cup Odds
Who wins the EFL Cup 2018/2019?
Carabao Cup 2018/19
The League Cup (or EFL cup) now known as Carabao Cup is an annual knock out competition in England. It is open to any club within the top four levels of the English football league system. The winner of this competition directly plays in the third qualifying round of the Europa League if they can't compete in the Champions League.
The defending champions Manchester City are the favorites to win this competition once again next season. They have won the trophy 5 times in total. Pep Guardiola's team has been very dominating in the 2017/18 season. They beat Arsenal in the finals of Carabao Cup 2017/18 by 3-0. The blue side of Manchester won the cup 3times in the last 5years. Even though they never won it back to back, they could do it next season.
Liverpool is the most successful club in the League cup. They have won it 8 times which is more than any other club, and became the runner up 4 times. The last time they won was in 2011/12 and became runner up in 2015/16. Even though their recent record hasn't been up to the mark, they will always be one of the favorites to win this competition.
You can never write off a big name like Manchester United. They have won the trophy 4 times in the last 12years with 2016/17 being the last time they have won it. Jose Mourinho's side was embarrassed after being knocked out in the 2017/18 season against a championship team, Bristol City. So they will be hungry to win again next season.
With the success of Chelsea in every competition since Roman Abramovich bought the club. Chelsea will surely be one of the top contenders again next season. The club has won the League Cup 5 times in total. They were knocked out from the tournament in the semifinals of the last campaign against their London rival Arsenal. 2014/15 was the last time Chelsea won the trophy and they could do it again next season.
The runner of the last campaign Arsenal will also be one of the favorites next season. After their disappointing loss to Manchester City in the finals they will have something to prove in 2018/19. Arsenal's record in the finals of the League cup hasn't been good. Having played in the finals 8 times but winning it only 2times. They will surely want to change that in the next season.
