Man United vs Derby predictions and EFL Cup betting tips for this Tuesday night fixture at 7.45pm. Old Trafford is the venue for this Sky Sports League Cup fixture where Frank Lampard’s in-form side will look to cause the shock of the round.
United were help to a 1-1 draw by an impressive Wolves team at the weekend to end their run of three straight victories, and changes will be made by Jose Mourinho for this League Cup match. That will certainly give Derby hopes of an upset who come into this match off the back of a 3-1 home victory over Brentford at the weekend. They went to Hull in the last round and beat them 4-0. United have conceded in their three home matches so far this season so for the first of our betting tips on this match, we’re having a punt on both teams to score.
There will be changes made to both starting line-ups for this match so we need to take that into account when looking at an anytime goalscorer tip. Lukaku would be the obvious choice but he’s likely to be rested for this tie and Marcus Rashford is suspended, so Alexis Sanchez could play through the middle. Anthony Martial is another player who could get his chance from the start and he’s going to be the selection here. The Frenchman was out of favour with Mourinho but came on as a substitute at the weekend. If he starts the match, then bet on Rashford to score against Derby in this week’s league Cup fixture.
Our tipster is already advising a both teams to score bet for this match, so we need to take that into account when picking our correct score prediction. The Championship side might fancy their chances of an upset here but it all depends on how seriously Frank Lampard will take this competition, because Derby County will want to be involved in a promotion push. Even if Manchester United do make a few changes to their side, they should be good enough to win this match and some of the fringe players will want to push their claim for a starting spot when they face West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday. To complete our Man United vs Derby tips we’re going for a 2-1 home victory in this match.
Man United to win – 1/4.
Draw – 11/2.
Derby to win – 14/1.
If you are predicting a League Cup upset here, then a Derby victory certainly appeals at odds of 14/1. The draw is 11/2 and the expected Manchester United victory is priced at 1/4 with bet365. The home side will want to avoid a potential banana skin here and so Mourinho is likely to play a strong side, making a few chances. Frank Lampard will have a similar dilemma for his Derby County starting line-up so it remains to be seen how strong his line-up is, with the likes of Mason Mount expected to play after his goal at the weekend.
Derby’s main aim is to get back into the Premier League this season and they have made a decent start under the ex-Chelsea man, The odds for Derby to qualify for the next round are best at Betfair, where it’s 15/2. The aforementioned Mason Mount is a good prospect for an outsider on the anytime goalscorer market, he’s an 8/1 shot at Unibet.
