Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
QPR and Everton take on each other at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in the EFL Cup last 32. The Hoops do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of Tuesday’s clash as they were beaten by both Bournemouth and Bristol City in the previous two league fixtures. QPR, though, look sharp in front of goal, and we predict that they will extend their brilliant goal-scoring run. Both Field and Wallace remain in the recovery room, while Adomah, Austin, and Ball are pushing for a start.
The Toffees, on the other hand, suffered a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa in their last league match. Everton are desperate to give fans some cheer, and seeing that they will go for a win in Tuesday’s EFL Cup game as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. All Coleman, James Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Delph, Richarlison, and Pickford are injured for the visitors. New signing Salomon Rondon should keep his place up front.
Highlighted Player (Tom Carroll):
Tom Carroll is a professional English footballer who plays for Swansea City as a midfielder. The 177-cm tall is a product of Tottenham football academy and it has to be noted that he made 27 appearances for Spurs at senior level, scoring one goal. He found the net in a 3-0 win over Norwich City in the 2015/2016 season.
After ending his loan spells with the likes of Leyton Orient, Derby County and Queens Park Rangers, Tom Carroll signed a permanent deal with the Swans in the winter of 2017. Tom Carroll has 17 caps for England U21 team, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team.
His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both left and right midfielder as well. Tom Carroll’s preferred foot is left and his contract with the Welsh outfit should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four campaigns.
The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987.
The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955.
In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
