Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Buoyed by a historic 5-1 win over Notts County, Sutton will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Cambridge United in the EFL Cup round 1. The Amber and Chocolates could not have wished for a better start to the season and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Cambridge United. A man to watch in the home team will be pacey winger Omari Patrick, who scored a brace in the season opener.
The U’s, on the other hand, defeated Oxford United in the League One derby at the weekend, but they face a tough task in the Gander Green Lane clash. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both Sutton and Cambridge United have been sharp up front at the start of the season. As for the away side, both Cousins and Kaikai are pushing for recalls to the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Liam O’Neil):
Born in Cambridge, England on July 31, 1993, Liam O’Neil is an English footballer who plays as both defender as midfielder for Cambridge United in the League Two. O’Neil is a product of the Cambridge United football school, but he played for Histon during his youth career as well.
In the summer of 2012 he joined WBA youth academy, and it has to be noted that he made three appearances for the Baggies at senior level in all competitions. Liam O’Neil played for the likes of VPS and Scunthorpe United on loan as well before joining Chesterfield in 2015.
After scoring two goals in 45 appearances for the club in the league, O’Neil moved to Cambridge United in the winter of 2017. As his mother comes from Wales, O’Neil is open to play for the Wales national team, but he has yet to earn a cap with the Dragons.

Cambridge United recorded their biggest league win in March 2007 as they outclassed Weymouth 7-0, and they repeated the success against Forest Green (2009) and Morecambe (2016). Peterborough United are regarded as the club’s main rivals, but they maintain rivalries with Northampton Town, Colchester United, Luton Town, Stevenage, and Histon as well.
