Arsenal vs Leeds Betting Tips

Arsenal to win and both teams to score - BET NOW

 

Cup matches are usually difficult to predict because managers tend to rotate their teams to varying degrees due to the busy schedule the autumn brings.

However, with Arsenal looking unlikely to challenge for a European place due to their inconsistency, Mikel Arteta might be tempted to go full-strength against Leeds.

They are still capable of playing some very nice football, evidenced in the 3-1 triumph against Aston Villa on Friday evening. Arsenal also possess an excellent run of results against Leeds, failing to lose any of their last nine meetings, albeit four of them were FA Cup fixtures when Leeds were in the Championship.

Marcelo Bielsa's men haven't got going this season and have a stack of injury issues to worry about. Bielsa has rotated in cup competitions in the past and may be tempted to do the same, giving Arsenal the initiative.

Chelsea vs Southampton Betting Tips

Chelsea to win to nil - BET NOW

 

Things are going swimmingly for Chelsea this season as they top the Premier League after nine games following their 7-0 demolition of Norwich on Saturday.

There is a real air of confidence at Stamford Bridge as Thomas Tuchel seeks to build on their Champions League triumph from last season. Solidity has been the name of the game - this season in 14 competitive fixtures, they have kept eight clean sheets with Tuchel proving himself to be an all-round tactician.

Southampton were beaten by Chelsea earlier this month at Stamford Bridge and come into the game having only won once in the top flight all season. Like many managers, Ralph Hasenhuttl might have one eye on the league and a rotation of players could happen, giving Chelsea a big advantage.

QPR vs Sunderland Betting Tips

(Tuesday, 19:45)

QPR to win and both teams to score - BET NOW

 

In Mark Warburton's time as QPR manager, the R's have been one of the Championship's entertainers and this season has been no different. Only West Brom have found the net more often in the second tier, while just three of their opponents have had poorer defensive records.

Their last game in the competition was an enthralling tie against Premier League Everton, which QPR came through on penalties after a 2-2 draw, and they will fancy their chances against Sunderland who are the lowest-ranked side left in the competition. 

A first home defeat of the season against Charlton on Saturday saw the Black Cats slip to fourth in League One and QPR should have too much firepower for them.
