The season’s first piece of major silverware is up for grabs as Manchester City and Chelsea meet to determine the winner of the 2018-19 Carabao Cup.


Revenge is a dish best served cold, even though no doubt Chelsea’s 6-0 loss to Manchester City the other week is still pretty red raw.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri received plenty of flack for that result which has understandably made the best betting sites stand up and take note by installing City as hot favourites to defend the EFL Cup.

However, there are few better chances of gaining the ultimate revenge than by defeating the opponents who embarrassed you and taking the cup away from them.

That will be the hope of all Chelsea fans as they head to Wembley to face a Manchester City side still challenging on four fronts. It may prove to be slim hope though as City have been in imperious form on their way to the final.

Just one goal has been conceded on route to the final (not including the penalty shootout with Leicester) and Gabriel Jesus is the competition’s top scorer with five.

Chelsea have overcome Liverpool and Spurs to reach the final but their unpredictability under Sarri coupled with their 6-0 drubbing at the hands of City can mean you can only back the Manchester club.

City have scored 16 goals in the competition so far so expect action with Chelsea proving they have some fight in them, just not enough in a tense 2-1 victory for the Citizens.  

Betting Tips

Manchester City to win and both teams to score

City has scored sixteen goals on route the final whilst Chelsea have been no slouches themselves and the addition of Gonzalo Higuain only adds to their firepower. 

Gonzalo Higuain to score anytime

An almost certainty to start, popular sportsbooks have the Argentine down as Chelsea’s main attacking threat, especially after netting that brace against Huddersfield in the league.

Head to Head

This will be the fourth meeting between the two this season, having met in the Community Shield and twice in the Premier League so far.

City won two of those ties including the Community Shield and that 6-0 drubbing earlier in February.

However, Chelsea did inflict a defeat on City in December at the Bridge, winning 2-0.

Remarkably, the pair have not met in the League Cup since 1993 when City defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Maine Road.


  • Manchester City are the defending EFL Cup holders.
  • Chelsea have beaten Liverpool, Derby County, Bournemouth, and Tottenham to reach the final.
  • Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus is the competitions top scorer with five.
  • Manchester City overcame Oxford United, Fulham, Leicester City, and Burton Albion on route to the final.
