The Carabao Cup has been known for upsets, as it allows lower league teams to compete against the EPL giants. In this case, however, it is predicted no such upset will occur. Preston North End defeated Birmingham over the weekend in what was a tight affair, but Manchester City scored eight goals against Watford. Whilst the scoreline may not be as one-sided, it is predicted Manchester City will overcome their opponents and will advance to the Carabao Cup Fourth Round.
