Chelsea are expected to make some changes for this cup tie but still name a strong line-up. They are doing well in the league, they sit third place and the only team who can realistically put pressure on the top two at the moment. Ross Barkley appears to be back up to his potential under Maurizio Sarri and is expected to start. Derby are in the last Championship play-off spot at the moment and are inconsistent but on their day can hold it with much better sides, such as the last round when they beat Manchester United on penalties. They were fortunate then that United were already in bad form however, they might not be that lucky with Chelsea. It won’t be easy but Chelsea should see past Derby with their extra quality and home advantage. The first of our Chelsea vs Derby predictions is Chelsea and both teams to score.
For our anytime scorer tip on this Carabao Cup tie tonight, we’re going to take a chance on in-form Ross Barkley getting on the scoresheet. He has started to come good as of late with three goals in his last three games, one of these a very important 90th min equaliser against Manchester United. Barkley to score anytime is the second of our Chelsea vs Derby betting tips for this week’s League Cup fixture tonight.
My correct score tip to complete these Chelsea vs Derby predictions is for a 2-1 Chelsea win. The cup is never as easy as it looks and it is rare that the underdogs don’t cause at least a few problems for the better side. I can see this being a very tight game and Chelsea eventually winning through a moment of brilliance. 17/2 at bet365.
Chelsea’s odds to win the match are 1/4, the draw is 19/4 and the odds for Derby to win are 10/1. If you want to bet on a first goalscorer then Morata is the favourite at 16/5, Barkley is likely to start and he’s 8/1 at betway. Both teams to score in this match is 1/1 but if you are to go with both teams to score? No, it is at odds of 8/11.
