Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
A place in the EFL Cup quarter-finals will be at stake when MK Dons and Leicester City take on each other at Stadium MK on Tuesday evening. MK Dons faced no difficulties in a 2-0 win over Morecambe, but the bookies see them as big underdogs in the midweek clash. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Leicester.
The Foxes, on the other hand, did well to beat West Ham 2-0 in their last game before the World Cup break, with the team extending their winning run in all competitions to three games. All James Justin, Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu, and Ryan Bertrand are sidelined with injuries, but Brendan Rodgers can count on key players for Tuesday’s match, and we predict that the Premier League side will prove their worth on the field.
Highlighted Player (Will Grigg):
Wighan Athletic striker Will Grigg became a viral sensation during the European Championship in France but the chances are any avid football fan will have been well aware of his goalscoring exploits even before 2016. The 27-year-old forward began his career at Stratford Town but it was in Walsall that the world took notice of his presence after 27 goals in 99 performances for the club.
He first came to prominence during the 2012/13 season when he was voted the club’s Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season, but a loan spell at Milton Keynes Dons during his rather unfortunate two-year spell over at Brentford proved crucial for his career.
The total of 20 goals in 44 appearances at Stadium MK was where Wigan Athletic noticed the Northern Ireland man and moved in to sign him on a three year contract for a £1 million fee in 2015. ‘Will Grigg’s on Fire’ was the hit song of the Euro 2016 even though the Northern Ireland striker ended up not getting a chance to make a bow in the tournament.
