Everton have made an excellent start to the season, taking ten points from their opening five Premier League matches so confidence will be high in the Toffees camp as they prepare for their tricky Capital One Cup contest at Leeds.
Subsequently, Betfred make the visitors odds-on at 5/6 to book a place in the fourth round at the expense of the Championship outfit, bet365’s 15/4 outsiders and even though David Moyes is likely to make one or two changes, he tends to take this competition seriously so they should just about edge it at Elland Road.
Ladbrokes price an away victory by one goal at 3/1, William Hill offer 15/2 for a 2-1 Toffees triumph while in attack, Victor Anichebe has helped himself to two in his last two and can net in this one. He’s 7/1 via Coral to break the deadlock and 9/4 at the same firm to get on the scoresheet at any stage.
Elsewhere, Chelsea at 1/3 with William Hill have a squad with enough depth to cope with Wolves, Skybet mark 8/11 against Southampton building on their first Premier League success by overcoming faltering Sheffield Wednesday and for punters seeking an upset, MK Dons at 14/5 (Coral) look like the most likely candidates as they host Sunderland.
Victor Anichebe to score first – 7/1 (Coral)
