Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Luton Town and Norwich City face each other at Kenilworth Road in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Luton impressed in the last season finale, and, as a result, they managed to secure the Championship survival. The Hatters have been producing splendid displays in preseason as well, and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. The Canaries, on the other hand, are on a quest to secure a quick return to the Premier League.
The club chiefs managed to keep hold of key players in the summer transfer window, and given Norwich’s attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last meeting in a competitive game Norwich outplayed Luton 3-2, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score.
Highlighted Player (Jacob Butterfield):
Born in Bradford, England on June 10, 1990, Jacob Butterfield is a professional footballer who started his youth career at his hometown club Bradford City before joining Manchester United. In 2005 Butterfield moved to Barnsley football academy and he continued playing for the Tykes senior team.
After scoring 8 goals in 89 appearances for Barnsley in the league, the 180-cm tall midfielder moved to Norwich City, but he was immediately sent on loan to Bolton Wanderers. Jacob Butterfield played for the likes of Crystal Palace (loan), Middlesbrough, Huddersfield Town, Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday (loan) and Bradford City (loan) before signing a contract with Luton Town.
Seeing that the Hatters secured promotion to the Championship, Jacob Butterfield will play in the English second tier in the 2019/2020 season. His main position is central midfield, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Norwich):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road.
The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902.
The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
