Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
A place in the EFL Cup last 16 will be at stake when Brighton and Swansea City go head to head at Amex Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Seagulls aim to build on back-to-back league wins over Brentford and Leicester City, and the bookies see them as favourites to win the match. All Mwepu, Lamptey, Burn, and Moder are pushing for a start, while both Locadia and Webster are sidelined with injuries.
The Swans, on the other hand, played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Luton in their last league match. The Welsh outfit have drawn each of their previous three Championship fixtures, with the team rolling over Plymouth 4-1 in their EFL Cup opener. Swansea City, though, are not regarded as good travelers, and they are unlikely to spoil Brighton’s party at Amex Stadium. All Piroe, Ntcham, and Cabango should be recalled to the starting line-up.
