Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Leicester City showed character in their last league match, with the team coming from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur at their King Power Stadium. The Foxes regained a much-needed confidence, but they do not want to stop. The Premier League side aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration and we predict that they will take Tuesday’s League Cup game against Luton Town very seriously.
Jamie Vardy is likely to be rested against the Championship side, with Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho being ready to step up. Luton Town failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to the likes of QPR and Hull City, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Brendan Rodgers’ troops. In their last meeting in a competitive match (2007) the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but away win should be considered this time out.
